I just bought this and am testing it out. I had been using Elgato, but it would never work with my laptops, for some reason they could never figure out.
I have been using Toast for years, and have been reasonably satisfied with it, so I was pretty stunned by the user interface on this Easy VHS - it looks like it was designed by forward-thinking neanderthals on a cave wall, anticipating the future need for such software.
The screen is miniature, and there are almost NO options?! I can stop recording after 1-3 hours, or not stop - that's it?! Did anyone there LOOK at a VHS player or cassette designing this?! I know most of your developers were probably born after VHS went out of favor, but you could have ASKED someone?! Most VHS tapes go for 2 HOURS, and some can even go 6-8 HOURS?! WHY NOT a few more auto stop options?!
I have a TON of long VHS tapes I want to convert, and many run for 4 hours or more... I'd like to start this before I go to bed or to work, and come back later without recording hours of blue screen?!
Also, why no option to ramp up the volume record level? That would be handy. Another thing that would be nice is a "pause" in recording, without stopping the entire record process entirely...
The worst of all of this is really the quality of the resulting video is really poor. I've used Elgato video capture and the quality is much better. I'd like to get this refunded from Roxio if I can figure out how to get a response from them?!
