It works great, when you get it to work
on 5 August 2017
It works great, when you get it to work. I use it with PC, PS4 and Xbox, and it gets confusing to set up, because of audio inputs and outputs, and having to use different headsets. e.g. if u have your mic and headset plugged into the ps4 controller, the elgato will not record it, mic must be plugged into recording pc. I have never got a mic to record plugging it into the legato hd60 device itself! When recording on PC, I have headphones output from the TV, not the PC, because otherwise it does not output sound through hdmi to the elgato. Then I have my mic plugged into recording PC which works fine! Also I did not realise the ps3 would NOT RECORD with it, as most devices were listed I assumed it was a mistake, so the hdmi signal is encrypted with hdcp, however you can bypass this with a hdmi splitter which will allow you too!
Most of what I said sounds negative, but that's because it is really confusing. I gave it 4 stars as It records very nicely and you can change all the settings of the recording to optimize it for whatever console or pc you are using! It also has live streaming available on the software, which allows you to stream on things like twitch and youtube, and has cool features including using your webcam to record yourself and put it where you want on the screen, and you can also have your own backdrop if you have a green-screen! All in all great product but confusing to setup on different platforms!
