Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well with Windows 7 64 bit - Drivers all come on CD and work, no need to download from internet. Director/Producer Software (capture& editting) it comes with works excellent as well, very simple to set up and automatically detects device - however to get it to work you have to tell it what signal type it's recieving (PAL-60, etc). Using it to record from my Xbox 360 and produces very high quality videos with no lag or jitter at all on recorded video. Overall very pleased with my purchase and especially pleased it works so well with Windows 7 64-bit, after having no luck finding any other devices that actually work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what is says on the tin. Easy to install, good quality transfer for video and audio. Software is ok for a free version alowing you to transfer to your computer and do some basic manipulation. Most importantly, video and audio are in sync. Works on both older desktop Windows Vista and newer laptop Win 7. Only small issue (on Vista) is that the the audio is on initial connection the audio muted and you need to go to control panel => sound => select Recording Tab => douple click on USB 2861 Device => select Levels property => click the little speaker icon until its not muted. Then works fine. Would recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If you purchase this product and find that it contains PowerDirector V8, return it immediately for a refund. Do not waste time trying to edit video with this, everything looks fine until you render the finished sequence. The sound will be about half a second out of sync in various parts, but not all the way through, so you cannot fix it with a simple offset. You will have to use another editing program so the cheap price tag for the hardware and piece of faulty software becomes a lot less attractive. Do not waste any time with cyberlink support, I have been going round in circles for a month.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So far this has been a complete waste of money. I found that I needed extra connectors to get any thing from my VCR to the convertor dongle supplied, but I've so far tried 4 different combinations, and not succeeded in getting a single frame of output on to my pc. The supplied software insists on being run by an administrator ID, otherwise I get a 'can't find a burner' error. You can't register the product with ion audio because their website insists that all their customers live in the USA, so you can't get any support from them, and the webiste just recycles the minimal info you get in the instruction booklet. It only gets 1 star because I can't give it none.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had a Canon Camcorder i wanted to use for live streaming from my PC. Unusually these camcorders dont have firewire or USB streaming but it does have AV Out (Yellow, Red & white RCA). This little gadget worked perfectly. Not keen on cyberlink but can recommend Debut software from NCH which works nicely with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wanted to a) transfer my films from my freeview box to my PC b) be able to record from my CCTV camera. This manages both tasks well. The Cyberlink PowerDirector software, (which was included) can do some things better than I could do them with my Nero or AVS. Very pleased!

Hi, i have a video camera in a bird nest box with the receiver connecting via the three coloured leads to my TV. Just wondering if i could use this to record video throughout the day whilst we are out?

Asked by: Phil
This should be fine to use. If the cables are being ran outdoors thought you would need to use appropriate waterproofing and this would need to be connected to a pc in order to record.
