I'm having a major problem either due to the software or the actual game capture hardware. When I open the software and click on "capture" without the hardware plugged in, it works fine. However, as soon as I plug it in everything on the capture screen disappears (leaving only the grey dotty background) and then my computer completely freezes. First, the mouse stops moving, then my mouse disappears and then there's nothing for me to do apart from restart my computer. I've also tried opening the capture software when my hardware is already plugged in but the exact same thing happens.
Now I know that some people use AmaRec TV instead but I can't seem to get that to work either. When I plug in the hardware, AmaRec TV just says "not found video capture device".
I've also installed that ffdshow codec pack and have the latest version of Direct X.
Any kind of help is much appreciated
