1 out of 5 eggsCrashes Computer

Pros: When it works it captures video quite well.

Cons: This will cause frequent crashing and frezzing of my computer when the card is installed. (win 8.1). Only seems to work wiht avermedia software. And cant be used.

Other Thoughts: I would like to try a higher end card to see what happens but this sucked all my money for that last year and im sceptical to use aver again.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well after a year

Pros: Easy to install. Software not real elegant, but it does the job. Video quality pretty good considering the H.264 file size. The price was right.

Cons: Video quality, while pretty good, exhibits some encoder problems that cause video freezes, aliasing, bit errors and blockiness. I recognize that this is not a professional-grade video capture device, but periodic encoder updates from Avermedia would be appreciated.

The software that comes with this is sort of squirrelly. You can advance through the setting screens by using the down arrow on a keyboard but not by rolling the roller on a mouse or clicking the down arrow on the screen; both jump you to the LAST screen.

Other Thoughts: I use this as a DVR. I split the HDMI output from my set top box and ran one HDMI connection to this card installed in a HTPC. I'm using an i3 CPU and the video from my MB chipset, so nothing fancy in terms of a video card. The HTPC HDMI video out goes to my TV. I use the included software to schedule recording. I don't have a game console, so I'm missing out on a lot of the problems other users are experiencing.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly what I needed

Pros: Captures video in HD via HDMI or Composite
Software can display live feed from any input source
Software is much easier to work with than Windows Media Center.

Cons: I wish the software had an option to launch automatically into the live TV mode. You have to click twice to get into a full screen display of live TV (or whatever your preferred input signal).

Other Thoughts: I purchased this for the sole purpose of viewing TV on a PC from an AT&T U-Verse tuner box in HD quality.
I was surprised at the lack of options to make this happen. The cheapest Hauppauge product that would accomplish this was twice as much as this AverMedia one. I was able to install the card and software, connect it to the tuner via Composite video (YPBPR) and L/R audio, and was viewing HD TV in about 1 minute of software setup. This is SOOOO much easier than Windows Media Center. No complaining about a missing IR device, no unnecessary scanning for channels. This thing did what I needed and the price was cheaper than anything else I could find. I have had no lockup or signal problems either so far.

2 out of 5 eggsHD dissapointment

Pros: Easy to install the drivers and to use the software.

Cons: I bought this to record HD component video. I have tried it in two 3 GHz Core2 Duo computers. One XP with 2 GB RAM and one Win7 Pro 64-bit with 4 GB RAM. Both computers exceed the published requirements for my intent. Audio is great but video is very choppy. Many clear freeze frames but no fluid motion.

Other Thoughts: Maybe it will work once I get a next generation computer but for now Core2 Duos do all I need (except for this?)

I am really disappointed the published system requirements are incorrect.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great Capture card for just about everything. I'm using it with a Amber BV-5 TBC and the results are amazing. Any VHS tape can be rescued with this and the right software (using VirtualDub and the filters to get it into my PC).

Cons: None. Even the driver disk in the package was up to date. Win 7 x64 has no problems with it.

Other Thoughts: AMD Radeon R9 2400 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model R9316G2401U2K - Can't really seem to get it to run at PC2400/1200MHz reliably...1189MHz right now.

5 out of 5 eggsUsed to stream for streaming

Pros: Great for streaming with OBS. I can stream my console up to 1080i and it runs well. I don't get any lag at all from it. I use the hdmi to watch tv from my dish box and the component for my console.

Cons: It took me a bit to figure out that you have to switch between component and hdmi through the included softare when I'm streaming, but after that, it was smooth sailing.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if people really were having trouble with this card or if they didn't know to switch between her hdmi and component

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Functionality, Some Issues

Pros: Works amazingly well with HDMI connections up to 1080i, although you'll want to stick to 720P for better fluid motion. Records in excellent quality, works after a simple driver installation, and the interface is easy to use -- mostly.

I can play any game directly from the interface -- the input lag is minimal to non-existent for me. I play games requiring very precise accuracy, and it works great.

Cons: Using the included Component-to-HDMI cable, which is necessary for devices like the Wii and PS3, I get pretty bad color-flickering. It's noticeable in my live streams, so I had to find a work-around (use HDMI, capture my computer screen using software recording to circumvent the stupid HDCP).

Occasionally acts erratically, launching the application and then crashing it randomly.

Other Thoughts: This is a great concept, relatively inexpensive, and produces good quality. You can play consoles on your PC without needing an additional display device, and then you can capture for streaming using a software recording device or other capture device. You cannot use this as a capture device for streaming and simultaneously display it on your monitor for play.

The Component-to-HDMI dongle and/or port produces such bad color-flickering that I just can't use it anymore. When I switched from using that to HDMI and found a way to get around HDCP, my live stream viewers immediately begin commenting how much better the feed looked to them. Is it the adapter cable, or the AV_IR port itself? I don't know, but I can't use it.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Input Lag

Pros: Cheap PCIe x2 ($67 on sale), comes with useful cables. This is probably very handy for recording footage from tv, however, I didn't buy it for anything other than recording PS3 gameplay.

Cons: Unacceptable input lag. Feels like 1/3 to 1 second input lag when playing a game on my PS3 and recording. From my research there appears to be no way to fix this as it is the device itself. Splitting the video & audio signal from the game console might fix this, however, there'll still be some lag because of the splitter cable and tv.

Other Thoughts: I don't understand why all the top reviews claim there's no input lag. Maybe they're biased or have a different revision of the same product. Perhaps they're only recording footage from a non-gaming device.
