Cheap HDMI Video Capture devices - any use with SageTV?

There has been a recent influx of low cost Chinese HDMI video capture devices that have been mentioned by hardware aficionados on social media.

Has anyone tried these? They claim to support UVC, for what it's worth.
Any applicability to SageTV?

I posted the same thing not too long ago.

You can read that thread, but in general it appears the answer is likely no. The one I got works great standalone to capture HDMI into a file but Sage won't see it as a tuner (if that's your idea).

Also see my OP in that link about the thread here years ago when Chromecast was new, about how to get HDMI into Sage in a generic channel. A little searching of the word Chromecast might find it if you are interested.
