I recommend an AVerMedia Live Gamer Portable (or Portable 2 if you want the
extra features): http://amzn.to/2nb3xvc
I use it to record all kinds of systems (older systems through an
XRGB-mini). The nice part about this is the "portable" aspect, in that it
only needs to be powered via any USB source and can record directly to an
SD card. The PC part is completely optional (I don't even bother with it).
As for HDCP, if that's an issue for you, it's easy enough to buy a
splitter: http://amzn.to/2mBJd9X Most splitters strip it out of necessity.
