    I used the product for recording for my PS3, a couple hookups also and I can livestream. I love it, maybe its the TV but the quality is wonderful. The only thing bad is that they could have added more to it.

        Comments about Diamond Multimedia USB 2.0 GC500 HD 1080i Game Console Video Capture Device:

        I use this prodoct as a Recording device for Xbox360. Problem being, the device does not record in 1080 or even 720. In a widescreen format it can only record at 360. This is a terrible product for anyone looking for High Definition recording. I swear, HD was just thrown on the box to get people to buy it. If you're looking for a high def recorder, save a few more bucks and get something with an HDMI hookup to it.

          Comments about Diamond Multimedia USB 2.0 GC500 HD 1080i Game Console Video Capture Device:

          I bought the Diamond video capture device to digitalize my old HI-8 tapes. I got disappointed because the image quality of the mpeg file is far worse than the original (even choosing mpeg2 @ 4Mbps) and also the sound level output is too low (even adjusting to maximum during recording).
