It would be a good idea to choose something better.

This is a terrible product. I thought it was working great, until I tried recording a video over 30 minutes long. The video slowly loses sync with the audio until the mouths no longer match the voices. By the way, i have a new fast computer.
Wasted my money. I am now going back to Hauppauge. I had one of those several years ago and it worked great, but no longer supported in win7 64 bit.
Ordered the Hauppauge ImpactVCB 01381, as it has audio/video inputs, and fast as it is a PCI-express. I may be back to tell you how it worked out. I won't get it for a few weeks as I live in Canada.
Well, the PCI-e card works GREAT! (had to use the TV program that comes with the product to do old protected VCR tapes.)
Used WinFF to change bit-rate, and crop any spurious lines from top or bottom of screen due to tracking problems. Windows DVD Creator to write DVD.
"You get what you pay for". I should have known. I don't know if all usb devices used for this purpose are bad, but I am not taking any chances - I don't know about you.
