"If it can't capture video, what good is it??"0.5 starson by newmangw
Pros: lots of features
Cons: Capturing DV on the 1394 firewire doesn't work
Summary: I purchased the Pinnacle AV/DV package that came with the PCI board. Thought it was going to be easy. Now, 6 days later, still nothing - can't capture video from my DV camcorder. Tech support is no help. On the discussion boards, they tell you to bypass the capture in Pinnacle and use WinDV and then import it into Studio 9. Now why would someone want to do that after paying for an all-in-one system. It also cannot import .WMV files to burn to CDs - need to translate to .AVI (1) then to AVI (2) using other programs and then maybe you can import - I couldn't and ended up using Roxio Easy Media Creator 7.5. That worked!!
