    Just got an Elgato Game Capture Device for $120 on Amazon. It arrives Monday. All games will be recorded next season, maybe even a season highlight reel? I see big possibilities here. :cool:

    It records all game play, and you hook it up between your tv and the XBOX. Then when the game's over just hook it up to the computer via a USB and upload / edit. I'm not sure if you can stream with it though.. ?

    I'm tempted to get one of those, but does it come with software to edit the video?? It'd be cool to make highlight films and stuff..

    I have the live gamer HD and it records in 1080p. Its pretty incredible. So easy. I bought an additional 2TB hard drive and just record them and edit when I can. Not a lot of free time but its cool to have it so if you wanna go back and see how someone ripped you up or what happened on a quick sack. Its a lot easier than it is to watch the in game replays.

    If we had atleast 4 owners with capture devices, that would give us around 64 games to get highlights from. That is more than enough to make a good season highlight reel.

    I had a device, I took it back and bought a PS3 with it, that I have no games for.....The device is cool, but its funnest wears off once you have to convert edit and all that..uploading takes a while to, could get time consuming, but its great if u have the free time.

    What's the cheapest someone found one of these devices for? Looking to get one but $180 is harsh.....

    The price in the OP.

    This was a Black Friday special and the price has gone back up since. Just keep an eye on it, when it drops, you swing in and pick it up.

    is the Elgato HD the best on the market? I've seen some conflicting reviews about a bunch of capture devices :(

    I've had a positive experience with it so far. I just installed it on my Desktop computer and it is running a lot smoother than it did on my little netbook. So I am enjoying it. My one complaint is that one time it showed that it was recording, when in fact it wasn't. So when I chose stop record, I actually had really chosen "begin recording" and I basically missed recording a whole game :( but that could be just my fault as a user. I recorded film from my game this week vs Boman, I will post tonight.

    Have you downloaded the BETA from the URL I posted above and created a Twitch.tv account for live streaming?

    I'm thinking of recording the NFL Draft today in case I miss a few picks as I gather the data through 7 rounds.
