This review is from: Roxio Game Capture HD Pro
Pros: *Capture Quality
*Video Throughput (can take in component video and output to HDMI)
Cons: *Does not work with OBS
*Might not work with Xsplit (unofficial fix may not work)
*Capture Program uses over 200,000k system memory when streaming (OBS offers more customization for cheaper process)
*Capture Program isn't very robust (no overlay for webcam, Twitch Chat, no mic input except when actively streaming live)
*Cannot use HDMI video and RCA audio at the same time
Other Thoughts: people have been complaining of the delay between live gameplay and what actually gets displayed on their stream - during testing I started out with 5 seconds of delay, but by the time my session ended it was 5 minutes or more - not sure if this is the capture program unable to keep up with transcoding or my upload speed not able to spit out the data to the net fast enough - in any case, due to the work-arounds needed to get things working in proper order you would probably be better off spending a few extra dollars to get a device that works better with other programs (such as Xsplit or OBS) because while the Roxio device itself is decent enough, it shoehorns you into using Roxio's capture program, which could use some work and functionality.
Device is good for RECORDING gameplay, but not streaming it live.
