Will Intensity Shuttle work on my PC?

PostSun Nov 03, 2019 10:28 am

Hi there! I'm considering getting an Intensity Shuttle USB 3.0 to capture analog video on my PC. I'm just very unsure over whether or not it'll work on my system.

I have this USB 3 card installed on my PC:

Here are my PC's specs:

Anyone know whether this will work or not? :) Cheers!

I'm going to out on a limb here and just say no. The USB Shuttles are extremely picky about what they will work with and I think it's reasonable to say you won't know until you try. Unless you really need the analogue connections, I would be investing in a Decklink Mini Recorder or Mini Recorder 4K.

The USB shuttle is abs. junk. Stay away from it. They're reliant on a USB3 chipset and drivers that hasn't been supported/ produced for the last 3/4 yrs.

Also I'd suggest searching the forums. If you intend to grab analogue video from VCRs etc. Specifically use the search phrases time base controller or TBC.

Thanks a lot, guys. I do intend to use it to record analog video. I've read a lot of bad reviews about the USB 3 version, so thanks for re-iterating. :)
