Right now, functionality. I can't import at all right at the moment due to the box I have not being installed or having the correct drivers.

Right now I don't have a HD camera, so I need the composite and svideo inputs.

I'll look at that box. Do you know if you can purchase it without software? I already have several video editing programs.

Pinnacle is saying that the box is beyond end of life so they won't support it. They did say that they would send me another email within 24 hours if they could obtain the drivers for me. (More than 72 hours ago, and obtain them? Don't they already have them?
