Hi
I bought the Elgato game capture HD, Only problem i have is that i dont have a hdmi port on my laptop. So what i was thinkig of doing was buying a USB to HDMI converter (see here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1080P-USB-PC-to-HDMI-HD-Graphics-Converter-Video-Adapter-W-3-5mm-Audio-HDTV-MAC-/190689040609?pt=UK_Computing_Computer_Components_Graphics_Video_TV_Cards_TW&hash=item2c65f3d8e1) and where im supposed to put the hdmi lead into my laptop instead put it into the converter and then the converter into the laptop, but before buying the converter i thought id ask here if this will work without any problems?
thanks in advance

Hi, it depends on the type and OS of your computer. You would probably need a lot of drivers for this hardware to work. In my opinion, if your computer has FireWire, buy a HDMI to FireWire cable. This would be more reliable and USB doesn't always work.
