    Hauppauge USB-Live2 reviews

    USB-Live2 Analog Video Digitizer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It works but it ain't pretty Installed it and the pilot light didn't come on but the recording light did. Updated the drivers and software and the pilot light comes on now but not the recording light. It records though. Sometimes there is estraneous noise like the wire is acting like an antenna and sometimes there isn't. The image is a bit soft. Used it to convert VHS home videos to video .TS files so not sure how it would work with copyrighted material. I use VLC as my primary video player and found that VLC Modern can not play the .TS files but desktop VLC has no problem with them. If I were asked for a recommendation I would ask how desperate you are to capture the analog data.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Digitized my old tapes but with problems WinTV 7 software (included) sometimes locks up when you try to close it after using for several minutes of recording. Ever since installing this device, my hardrive light blinks once every second continuously even with the software closed. Never did this before installing. Makes me wonder why and what it is doing. The digitized video is good quality, but smooth pans sometimes jitter a bit. TIPS: Download new software from Hauppauge's site as the included CD is older. If you are digitizing your old video tapes, Use gaming mode to elliminate the 3 second delay that makes it hard to sync up your start and stop points with WinTV.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Like Expected! I Use this product for recording Safety meetings and some youtube tutorial videos. This device works very good. The Win 7 software is a good idea but freezes the computer. The other software that (Arc Soft Showbiz) came with it works Very well. No Hiccups! I recorded a Live Safety presentation for a construction site and it came out beautiful! Im using a Toshiba dual core 1.6 GHZ with 2 gb of ram and Windows Vista to record, and had no problems. Camreas used was 2 Sony DCR SX85 also bought from this site worked Awesomely!!! Running thru a SIMA VS-560 A/V Switcher....Simple system with not one problem. The Hauppauge USB-Live2 Video Digitizer is a good product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't work with all composite or s video signals I have gone back and forth with tech support for this product. I purchased it to be able to get live video into a PC to be shared during a conference from a Samsung Presenter. I am using an old mode SVP-6000. The output can be viewed with no issues when plugged into a projector's composite video input. When I plug the presenter into this device, the video has some horizontal sync problem. If I input the composite from a VCR, it works fine. All tech support could tell me is their device is not compatible with the camera on the presenter. My comment to them was composite and s video are old standards, how could this be.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with the result! I purchased a Sony HDR-FX7 video camera and found that my laptop did not have a slot for the ilink cable or for an ilink to adapter card. After many hours of frustrated searching on the Internet I came to this B&H website and was advised about the USB-Live2 Analog Video Digitizer by Hauppauge. I am very pleased with the results. The software installed easily, my laptop had no problems picking it up. Recording the videos was also easy through the software interface that comes with the product. The only glitch seems to be in switching between the record mode and other buttons, which caused the software to pause for an extended time. As for visual quality - The results look better to me than when I was using the ilink cable - much to my pleasant surprise.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from works good I had the USB-Live1 with my XP pro, but had to go the USB-Live2 when I went to Windows 7 to be able to transfer video from my video recorder to computer, easy, simple, I also use it to view and record images from a CCTV camera. Simple and easy to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good video capture device This product was very easy to install (Windows 7) and the accompanying software popped up easily. We are using it to capture s-video (composite is also an option) output from a medical imaging device; it is much higher quality capture than our old Dazzle Fusion capture device. We are purchasing another. It was very helpful in the TV software package to go through and delete all channels except the one that you are using; this saves time adjusting a channel once it is up and going. We are very happy with this device.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive solution I use this to stream city council meetings to Ustream. We purchased a new Dell XPS 8700 i7, 12 gb ram, Nvidia GT650, etc - Definitely up to the task of streaming sd video. Next we got a Blackmagic Intensity pro pcie card. That didn't work - apparently there was an issue with the chipset compatibility. So I bought the Hauppage USB-Live 2 capture device. For all purposes, it was plug and play. I didn't install any of the included software. It was recognized straight away and after plugging in an NTSC composite signal with left and right audio, it worked just fine. I have streamed up to 2 hours and 490 minutes without and issues. This is a great device and worked fine for me. Does not accept HDMI, HDSDI HD signal.
