Excerpt: Installed it and the pilot light didn't come on but the recording light did. Updated the drivers and software and the pilot light comes on now but not the recording light. It records though. Sometimes there is estraneous noise like the wire is acting like an antenna and sometimes there isn't.
Excerpt: After trying a highend video capture device (unnamed here as it failed) I opted to try a Hauppauge USB-Live 2 to capture video for an upcomming executive conference where my CEO / Chairman of the Board was intent on opeing the conference on the west coast while the confines of the buiness required...

Excerpt: I use this to stream city council meetings to Ustream. We purchased a new Dell XPS 8700 i7, 12 gb ram, Nvidia GT650, etc - Definitely up to the task of streaming sd video. Next we got a Blackmagic Intensity pro pcie card.
Excerpt: Initial setup was a little tricky on my old 32-bit PC running Windows 7, but the forth try was a success. Transferring 20-year old Hi-8 videos to digital MP2 format works great. I can edit the files with PowerDirector 9.
Pros: Durable, Highly Compatible, Produces High Quality Film
Cons: Faint High pitched tone/squeal during all recordings. Recording quality at "best" recording setting is ok. Definitely not HD quality. You won't notice unless motion is fast or if there is moving text on the screen. Even smaller static has distortion.

The USB-Live2 allows me to do this, but there is a small catch: there's a 5-second delay in the digitizing process, which is very noticeable when I try to change...
Pros: Haup610 Works like a dream. Detects and records from VHS player perfectly.
Cons: Bundled ArcSoft does not edit, does not save in form to record as DVD. All it wants to do is clip all recordings into one CD Video format. So that if your recording is over 700MB it will nor write to disk.
