    11. From frustration to happiness Review by Keith
      Quality
      Price
      Value

      When trying to install the disk I kept getting a message saying "The wizard was interrupted before the USB DVR could be completely installed,etc". However, I'm not particularly computer literate but I managed to install it from the list of programs on the disk and have been really pleased with the results.
      Transferring data from source to computer is straightforward, the edit process covers a variety of functions (I would have liked a User Guide instead of having to discover things by trial and error) and the burn process is quick and efficient. I now have a collection of excellent dvds to replace the growing number of recordings I was accumulating on my Freeview box.
      In short, it's a very good, inexpensive system which does everything Ihat I had hoped for. (Posted on 19/07/2012)

    12. These Leads Work Review by Stephen

      Quality

      I've been using the leads now for a couple of months and the work really well. They only work on the high speed USB port at the back of my machine not the ones at the front but that's not a problem. The software that comes with the leads is quite simple to use but you do have to fiddle about a bit to get the highest quality without the subsequent files taking up most of the space on your hard drive but I've found the default settings adequate for most things (except wildlife programs).

      Value

      Very easy to install and configure.
      Bought it for backing up stuff off my Sky box to DVD.
      Also want to try it with some old holiday footage on a Hi8 video cam.
      Only problem I'm having is I cant seem to get it to capture in widescreen?
      I have the SCART on the Sky box set to 16:9 and everywhere in the supplied software that I can find is set to 16:9 or widescreen yet is still only captures content in 4:3.
      Dont know if its a limitation of the device or the software that is supplied, but not had much time to test yet...
      Generally happy though and would recommend to others... (Posted on 10/03/2012)

      Quality

      The SCART to USB 2 Video Capture Kit allows the capture of both video and audio from cameras/TVs and other video equipment to your PC.

      The SCART connector can be removed if you want, leaving standard AV connectors, so there is a choice of how you connect your camera/TV or whatever to the PCs USB port.

      On my Toshiba Qosmio running Windows 7 - 64bit the device installed correctly first tiem with no errors. The whole setup process was very simple and full, clear instructions are provided in the box.

      There was a secondary item missing from the order when it arrived so I emailed cables-leads.co.uk to tell them and within just a few hours I had a very apologetic reply from a member of their staff and a promise to send the missing item out free of postal charge. They were good to their word and the missing item arrived two days later.

      Overall I am very pleased with both the product and the level of service I have received from cables-leads.co.uk and I am happy to thoroughly recommend them both.

      The Videocap device is easy to install, and comes with all the software you're likely to need to capture your videos to hard disk or DVD.

Once fixed, no problems.

      I have only got part way to editing using my pc and the Arcsoft software. I haven't had a great deal of time to play with it and I'm not very "techy".
      I might have a go with the NCH software.
      However, I have made a couple of calls back to "Cables & Leads" at Derby, asking for some assistance.
      This came from a person called Paul and I cannot speak highly enough of him.
      He is extremely knowledgeable and speaks so clearly that it is impossible not to understand him. He truly is a credit to the company.

      I bought this item a few weeks ago now. I mainly needed it to back up my videos from my V+ box, before the Tivo arrives. It has worked perfectly. The provided software is quite good as well. I am now going to look into using to archive my old VHS collection, and maybe finally move my DVD's onto an external hard-drive as well. You can also use to record activity on a webcam, or security camera. Software to go with a security camera is readily available on the internet.

      Having messed about with various methods of video/audio capture with generally iffy results, this is like a dream come true. The bundled software (and the free NCH prog) didn't work properly for me, but using the kit with Cyberlink Power Director was both easy and very good video/audio quality. I can now transfer all my VCR tapes onto HDD/DVD, and after that use it to offload content from Sky box (but obviously lose any HD due to analog nature of SCART). All in all, absolutely delighted. Service also excellent. (Posted on 18/04/2011)

      The Scart to USB 2.0 Video Capture Cable Kit provides one of the easiest means of capturing media content from all of those old VHS tapes that you have stored away. When the correct settings are applied for PAL or NTSC TV live broadcasts, high quality raw video files can be saved to your PC but ensure that you have a spare hard drive with at least a terabyte of size to store the files as these are uncompressed and ready for conversion and editing.
