Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst piece of equipment ever, capture software is terrible too Received this for Christmas and had nothing but problems.The software (Vivastation) doesn't record properly. I click the record button and you get a still image in the feed, the file is then only 3 seconds long, even though I have been capturing for 30 mins. I cant seem to find any information about the software online and it's the most unreliable thing ever. I would give this 0 stars if I could. Do not buy this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best Capture device out there! This game capture HD is great and NOW the best capture card out there! I recommend this device because it is quite cheap and records at 1080p at 30fps. Choose this one and not anything else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from POOR INSTRUCTION MANUAL It states up 64gb SD Card - WRONG - Can only take upto 32gb You just have to work it out your self by trial and error as the instruction manual/leaflet does not contain much instructions. So its going back to Maplin! Stay looking pretty on their shelves.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks good however the software isn't supported on Windows 10 I purchased device so I could capture my screen to make tutorial videos, unfortunately the software does not install on Windows 10. It requires .net3.5 which will not install as it's not compatible! So it's pretty much a brick right now, which means it's going to have to be returned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazed These Aren't Flying off the Shelves Excellent device especially for the price. It almost goes without saying that it can capture and non-HDCP HDMI source. Making this device incredibly useful. Can actually stream HDCP (but not record) to the app provided (or Android/iOS).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of time If you are looking to use this to stream via OBS then think again it uses its own VIVA software which for me would not even log into twitch so I was not able to stream from my pc.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for the price but struggles with faster games I bought this for my son who is a wannabe youtuber. As he doesn't have a laptop, he records straight to SD card. It does a pretty decent job for FIFA, but struggles with Rocket League (where the screen updates very fast). For the money though, you can't complain. Very easy to set up. Works fine with both XBox 360 and XBox One. One gotcha - sometimes, if you've been watching iPlayer or More4, the xBox switches the HDMI output to a protected mode, which the box won't record. You have to fully reboot the xBox to clear this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as the Elgato Game Capture HD This is extremely good for its price but would like to see some better software included with it and possibly a gold plated HDMI. Otherwise this is a great product from Maplin :)

Can this record mine and other people's mic, if it can how ?

Asked by: Bigjohn88
This only records audio coming through the console. If you wanted to record your own microphone then you would have to do this using other methods

hello I purchased this item last year and have since thrown the box away by mistake, is there a way of getting the license key for the cyberlink power director 10 software? I did have it installed on my laptop but had to have it restored, thanks

Asked by: neil
Sorry the license key is provided with the product when purchased, there is no way to obtain new licence key other than to re purchase the software. .
