    Looking back through my old posts, i have struggled with this before, it was 9 years ago and now i have found another tape to do.

    I have now seen a unit with DVC 170 rev 1.2 for sale.

    i dont know, can they all be the same? im lost

    Why don't you purchase the version currently available at Corel ?

    Hi, thanks. I checked the link and it’s a good price, I’m still not sure as this product you showed me is 10 years old and i don’t fully understand why there is so many variances in the name as the hardware looks the same shape. I’ve spent a fair amount of time trying to find out for myself and reading up, I don’t understand why this one is called HD when the source connections are old fashioned analogue. Perhaps the difference in all these is just the software bundled and the hardware is all the same? I tried to see the model names in  paused YouTube videos and could read some were DVC100 on the device but I have seen listed DVC107 and DVC170 on line. I don’t want to spend out on software bundled if the hardware is all the same(im using my own studio 14) rather buy the cheaper version if the hardware provided inside is the same. Perhaps one of these uses USB3 not USB2? if I haven’t found out that yet. Would USB be better to help with sped with regard to dropped frames? Is so I need the USB3 version. I do appreciate your help, thanks

    Perhaps this youtube video will help your decision. The commentator shows 3 different capture devices but indicates that he prefers he DVC 100.

    And here is another link you may like to read.
