Bought this on the 21st, got it today, and Amazon still tells me that it's due for delivery on the 30th. Yay for Amazon Free delivery!
The Ezcap 116 is a neat little product, very small! I'm using it with a scart converter from my old VCR and then the red, yellow and white cables, I also have a S-VHS connected. (all connections from the 116 are female, so mind that you have male connections to hook them up to!).
I had one issue when I first tried to use the software - I used format PAL60 in the ArcSoft program to capture PAL60 output (converted NTSC signal) from the VCR, but it refused to work. I only got "Capture Failed" over and over again. Yet they claim it can capture PAL60! This prompted me to go to Ezcap forums, which you will be invited to upon purchase, however they required your name, email and receipt number to allow you entry. I happened to use my less formal email but the proper order number (what else do you get from Amazon?!). Alas, it was abruptly rejected cause it was not a proper match!!
I found my own solution, use NTSC_433 to capture PAL60 with ezcap. There, free help.
Love the little device and the fact that it's not proprietary like my old Pinnacle device. But the narky forum experience has seriously tarnished my first day with the product.
