I'm also using the composite output to capture my Wii console, which had been collecting dust until now, to play my old favorites.
The software is very simple and doesn't allow for very fine adjustments, but it gets the job done.
Quality of the capture is great, sound is also very clean.
I'm using this with Windows 10 on a Dell XPS laptop. USB 3 is required for the device to work. Also there are no Linux drivers.
The unit is very small and portable. It's good well on to of my Dell docking station. An LED indicates that power is applied.
It does the job, but coming from an Avermedia Live Gamer Extreme which is more simple to use, I'm not sure I'll keep it.
The device is 100% incompatible with any 3rd party software (their site does say that).
If your machine is not fast enough the sound goes out of sync with the picture quickly on their supplied VivaStation software although this does not seem to actually affect the recording process although also depending on settings the software hangs, stops completely or corrupts various other codecs.
StarTech makes better devices than this one (as do many other hardware manufacturers). I suggest that one pay a bit more for a device that works better and is more compatible with other software although the device does kind or, sort of, work OK.
I bought the USB3HDCAP instead. It costs more and requires USB3, but it is compatible with DirectShow.
This product does the job but I would suggest buying a better video editor.
Just click "Media" menu and choose "CY3014 USB" for Video and Audio device.
We can view the captured video in real time and in any size, take snapshot, record, and stream (with VLC).
We can use the software that comes with the box, or some others, too.
This box allows us to use a laptop (or a desktop) with USB3 as a display for VGA, DVI, HDMI, S-video, component.
So, we can debug a machine without having another display/monitor.
We can use Laptop or desktop screen as a video monitor, too.

The SD Card function works well, the video quality is saves is decent so useful for video editing.
The USB Function is next to useless unless you use a Windows machine to plug it in to, There are no drivers available for Mac Or Linux, and it does not appear as a V4L generic video device, so if you plan on using it with a Mac or Linux machine, you are stuck using the streaming function to pull it in to software like OBS, which as i mentioned suffers compression artefacts and drift in the audio.
I am guessing as I have seen it state in various places it is Windows 7/8/8.1 and not mentioning Windows 10 that the software is not updated.
If Startech read this, Windows is complaining in the Device manager about a security certificate.
If I receive an answer from my support request by tomorrow I will not return. However, I have already ordered another external vga capture device which is all I wanted from this.
For straight recording in to a computer, it works very well.
