This review is from: DIAMOND TVW750USB ATI Theater HD 750 USB
Pros: I bought this primarily for the video capture capabilities to use a camcorder as a webcam. It was well packaged, had lots of convenient extras in the box such as USB extension, remote, antenna mounts, etc. The included "TotalMedia 3.5" software seemed nice and intuitive, but that's where the Pros end.
Cons: I don't usually rate one-star ratings, but this is an exception. After installing the software, it worked once and only once. I was able to see the video output from the camcorder in TotalMedia 3.5. The next time I ran the software, it simply didn't work anymore. It couldn't see the device at all. I was also unable to see the device in Windows Media Center. In TotalMedia I kept getting the error, "The device is not available, or is being used by another application." I've seen LOTS of posts on the internet about this problem in several forums, and no working solutions. I tried everything; Rebooting, clean installing drivers, disabling all start-up items, reinstalling the software, deleting registry keys, you name it. It simply doesn't work. A complete waste of my time and money. Spend a few extra dollars and shoot for something better if your time is important to you.READ FULL REVIEW

Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
