TrackMania United (PC DVD) by Ascaron
4.0 out of 5 stars Must be unused!, 18 Sep 2012
After a protracted discussion with UbiSoft it turns out that TrackMania United must arrived with the game unused: the player code that arrives with the game is a one-off code and tied to the player as soon as they register it. Only buy this game brand new or direct from the manufacturer. TrackMania United gets a free upgrade to TrackMania United Forever: that can be bought online direct from UbiSoft to ensure an unused player code.

3.0 out of 5 stars Limited capability, 22 July 2012
This product seems to promise to do a lot but the reality is very different. It does capture certain resolutions very well but that is it. 1280x720p@50 1280x720p@59.97 1280x720p@60 for HDMI and standard PAL/NTSC interlaced for component input.

Interlaced capture using their JPEG algorithm (the bundled Media Express software)… Read more
Koolertron High Quality VGA to HDMI Converter Adap&hellip
The product does indeed correctly convert a VGA signal to an HDMI connection as it states. However, the Koolertron also encrypts the signal to HDCP so that non-HDCP devices (such as the Black Magic Intensity Pro range and all other HDMI capture cards currently available) cannot receive the signal (HDMI specification compliant devices are not allowed to decrypt HDCP if there exists the possibility of editing the footage!). This also means it will not connect to older HDTV devices either - the device must support HDCP. :(
