Hello :cowboy:

I'd like to know how works a USB video capture :
- Can I plug it in my TV with the component cable, record the program, or my games when I play video games, then plug the usb video capture to my computer to exctract/see/edit what I've recorded? OR does the USB video capture needs to be plug in the TV and on the computer at the same time to record?

Thanks! :wink: 61axOFOcqEL._SL1000_.jpg

The device converts your analogue audio/video signals to a digital signal on the USB connection - which can then be recorded on the attached computer. 


By itself, when not connected to a computer via USB, the device has no power & so does absolutely nothing. It also has no digital storage space so even if you powered it independently it would not be capable of recording by itself.
