Re: hdmi port on hp pavilion entertainment pc dv7

Does your dv7 have a TV tuner installed in it, or do you have an external video capture device (USB, FireWire) of some sort? You cannot use the HDMI port on the dv7 as a recording input; it can only be used for outputting audio and video from the dv7 to a home theater system or display of some kind.
