I give the Avermedia Rec Central 3 software 5 stars for ease of use.
Just my luck though, the day I bought this one, this was announced:
If it does what it claims, i.e. record 1080p 60FPS without an additional PC or Laptop - I would buy it instead.
Read below to find out why.
If you intend to use this device to record 1080p at 60FPS you will need a pretty powerful gaming laptop or desktop with a modern quad core processor and built in discrete high performance GPU.
I bought this to allow recording of PC Graphics Benchmarks without loading the PC CPU or GPU in an attempt to record 1080p at 60 FPS.
My intention was to use a secondary high performance laptop (HP Envy 15 Gen 1 with i7-720QM processor and ATI Radeon 5830 GPU and 16GB DDR3 Memory, Primary 512GB SSD. Windows 7 and also Windows 10 tried. This laptop has USB3.0. Although the laptop is old, the CPU is still reasonably strong compared to current laptops.
You can check if your Laptop / Desktop is powerful enough using a compatibility test tool on the Avermedia website.
Look for this link on the Avermedia LGX product website:
"* Warning! LGX is only compatible with USB 3.0 and selected chipsets. To see if LGX works on your computer, please download and run our compatibility test tool.
I cannot record 1080p at 60FPS the above HP Envy 15 laptop using Avermedia RecCentral 3 Software.
The issue is that the CPU on the laptop needs to do the following.
- Accept and process and record the Video Data.
- Compress and encode the data and convert to video (MP3).
The Avermedia RecCentral 3 does not allow you to do an uncompressed recording followed by an 'offline' video recording conversion to mp4.
As a workaround I do an uncompressed 1080p 60FPS recording using OBS Software: [...]
I then use VLC Player to play the output and convert to MP3 format after recording is completed: [...]
Note you need to install Avermedia RecCentral 3 to have a driver for OBS to work. You do not need to run RecCentral 3 at the same time as OBS.
Another point to look out for.
You need to make sure you power your your Avermedia recording device through a filtered power supply for reliable recording.
In other words purchace a mains filter / spike suppressor.
I couldn't work out why my recordings kept stopping.
It was because of electrical supply noise.
This issue has been reported on the Avermedia forums.
Hope this info helps you. Happy recording and streaming ;-).
The product is shipped with HDMI cables, but unlike its predecessor it does not have component cables. This means that it's well suited for recording next-gen consoles, but to record older consoles such as the PS3 you will need to buy them separately. On that note, it can be quite difficult to source a good HD cable, with so many fakes out there. I don't know if I'm allowed to recommend other products on this one's review, but I found a certain cable beginning with 'L' and ending in '3' to be perfect!
Anyway, recording gameplay is wonderful with this snazzy-looking device (yes, it definitely looks the part too). Once it's all set up and turned on, you simply press the record button on your remote to begin recording immediately, and again to stop. After a few seconds waiting for it to finish recording, the hard drive is ready to be removed (or plugged into your PC if using an internal one) to transfer it over for editing.
The quality of the recordings are excellent. I captured gameplay from Destiny on my PS4 (remember to disable HDCP from your PS4's settings before recording any games), and the quality is superb: full 1080p resolution - although of course 720p and 1080i can be chosen instead, however 1080i isn't recommended - along with high frame rate and no blurring, even during fast-paced action. You may be hitting about 9 to 10 GB per hour of recording, but it's definitely worth it.
The Game Capture HD II also has an inbuilt video editor, which is very useful for trimming out the parts you want without having to transfer any files to your PC. This is especially handy if you're running low on space and need to cut out clips. However, the editor only has the most basic video editing features and is by no means a replacement for any PC software; however it's adequate for the odd 5 minutes of gameplay you might want to upload, should you come across a glitch or hit that wonderful level 30 for the first time.
Of course, I should point out the downsides of this product for a fair review. One thing is that you have to follow the setup instructions very carefully, doing it in the right order, or you can have problems. I managed to freeze my Game Capture HD II twice on the first test run because I turned it on before my console. However, it worked fine immediately afterwards and once offered to repair my hard drive after a freeze - it's all been working fine ever since.
The other downside, and this is just being picky for the sake of finding something else to give as a downside, is that the startup is a little iffy. After turning on your console and then your Game Capture HD II, if you've set your resolution to 1080p you'll find your TV keeps flicking between 1080i and 1080p while the box gives you messages, such as "Welcome" and "Ready to record", but once it's finished after a dozen or so seconds, it's ready to go.
Summary: An excellent recording device that has done its job perfectly, and is well worth the money paid for it. It's easily portable, delivers high quality footage and features a great interface, just make sure you follow the instructions carefully!
The other issue is software. It appears that on Windows 8 and higher, there is a serious issue with Microsoft Skype and Microsoft Skype for Business (previously Microsoft Lync)- where these products will crash so long as the required driver for this item is installed. Simmilally, I had issues with streaming software simply being unable to captureu from the card, without a few app restarts. Falling back to windows 7 fixed both of these problems, but not really an solution for all.
Another issue which even windows 7 does not fix is that Chrome has to be closed before you start capturing, otherwise, your favourite streaming app won't be able to pick up the feed.(i.e. OBS)
Now that I'm on windows 7, and i close chrome before starting my stream, I have no problems with the device.
