Thanks for all the informa


Thanks for all the information virtualscribe. The laptop is a fairly new one so the USB ports are definitely USB 2 but you are correct about the hard drive, it is 4200 RPM.

Since posting my original message I’ve had a reply to an email I sent to Canopus stating that they don’t believe the laptop is capable of capturing video at full resolution, even using their product. I’ve also been having a discussion on another forum which is leading me to believe the same thing. A couple of posts on the other forum have suggested a few things I can do with the laptop to improve my chances but considering I will not be capturing analogue video very often I don’t think I’m going to go that route.

My current solution is to run s-video and audio connections from the analogue device downstairs to the PC upstairs and remote desktop to the PC from the laptop in order to initiate the capture. Not very elegant I’ll admit but if it does the trick I can live with it πŸ™‚
