This is a terrible piece of hardware. I have gone through two of these things and they never work without issue. I have streamed consoles on mac and am trying to stream on PC and the device continuously throws and error that it cannot be read through a powered USB3 slot. Just avoid this product.

A fantastic capture card for beginners

The Elgato HD60 S is a fantastic capture card for people looking to dip their feet into streaming, recording gameplay, or even capturing footage from a DSLR camera. While you can use the HD60 with Elgato's streaming software, the card works with other platforms as well, such as OBS or Streamlabs. I've had 0 issues out of the card after 2 years of use, so this product is a definite recommend for beginners!

It has been at least 5 hours and I still have not gotten my capture card to work. I have the capture card connected to a USB 3.0 port and it still tells me its not there. I have updated EVERYTHING imaginable.

It has been at least 5 hours and I still have not gotten my capture card to work. I have the capture card connected to a USB 3.0 port and it still tells me its not there. I have updated EVERYTHING imaginable. Also, the USB cord mine came with did not even go in all the way, so I had to purchase a new USB 3.0 cord. Just terrible.

Great card, not for Mac & OBS

By Elizabeth

This capture card works great, but only on my Windows PC. I actually bought this for use with a 2020 MacBook Air with an M1 and with OBS. Elgato claims to support Mac and OBS, but their support is incomplete. The card itself works with my Mac and Elgato's software, but not with OBS. (Yes, I followed their tutorial and installed all the extra drivers and software. It gets stuck on searching for signal and Elgato has no answers. ) So I would strongly advise more research and finding a different card if you plan to use this with an M1 Mac and OBS.

It was surprisingly easy to set up. Pretty much plug and play after downloading the software. I was shocked to see that I no longer require the traditional video feed for my gameplay and can use the instant gameplay feature to play my games. Not only did it add a lot of value to my streams, I rely on this capture card off stream to maintain two monitors and a clean set up. Recommend the elgato line to all my friends after trying it out

question

Can you use this device to capture Apple TV (audio and video) on a computer screen ?
Asked by: Archangel M.
In most, if not all cases, this will not work with Apple TV, due to HDCP. High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection prohibits transferring video, via HDMI if the material is copyright protected, as most is. An HDCP compliant Handshake is required on both ends of the transfer, so USB does not work.
