Should put a warning in the OP to stay away from Huappauge cards. Getting them to work properly is a headache and takes hours of fiddling with different drivers versions, and you'll likely wind up with hardware MPEG encoded footage anyway.

How comparable to a Canopus ADVC-100/110 DV capture box or an ATI HD 600 is this Elgato USB stick? And is the HD 750 as good as the HD 600? Just wondering as I'm having trouble finding any 600 listings but there's a few 750 out there (on eBay...)

Side note, how does the Canopus connect to a PC?

Elgato Video Capture - Digitise Video for Mac, PC or iPad (USB 2.0) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0029U2YSA...language=en_US

Trying to feel out the best solution that is also accessible. I've found some of these are harder to come by in 2019!

Just get the ATI 600 USB, and I still have a few in the marketplace.

A Canopus is DV, loses 50% of color data for NTSC (4:1:1), only decent for PAL (4:2:0 like most MPEG captures). It must connect via Firewire, which is also becoming harder to use -- not that it was ever easy, always had screwy issues.

That Elgato is a piece of junk, 640x480 max resolution.

What is the difference between the ATI 600 USB series and the subsequent revisions (650, 750, etc.)? Do they use an inferior chipset or something?
