My son has just bought the Dazzle Video creator video capture card for his laptop.
He will be using it to capture his Xbox 360 session.
UK TV use PAL as the video format, the Pinnacle studio software appears to support PAL, but not PAL 60.
After a bit of a search on Google I found the following link which solved the problem.
A good clear explanation. Installed AMcap and with the studio software capturing all appears well.
