    I want to be prepared if there's going to be a sale soon. I really want to be able to record and stream my Xbox 360 games, and possibly Gamecube games at some point, but I can't afford a capture card. And since I've applied to the Razer Supported Streamer Program about 6 or 7 times with absolutely no response, I don't think there's any hope of getting it through that.
    Can the Razer Ripsaw work with older systems? I know the Gamecube is old as heck now, and the 360 is just 1/2 a generation back (because of the Kinect) but can the Ripsaw work with them? I cannot afford to spend $250 or even half that if it won't work with these systems.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!
     
  2. i think the system has to have a hdmi output. so if so you should be good

    Hmm. I hope it also comes with all necessary cables then, lol, cuz cables are stupidly expensive. And since the Gamecube is so old, I highly doubt it has an HDMI input/output capability, so I guess that's still a no go... Now, my second question I just thought of is, is it possible to stream/record what's on your TV screen, instead of taking directly from the console/system?
     
  4. AH, I was wrong! found this:

    "
    Connecting the Ripsaw is a fairly easy process. To capture from any console with HDMI output (Xbox One, most Xbox 360 models, PlayStation 4, PlayStation TV, and Wii U), simply connect an HDMI cable from the back of that console to the HDMI input jack on the Ripsaw. Then connect the included HDMI cable from the Ripsaw's output jack to your television or monitor.

    If capturing from a pre-HDMI system, attach the Component AV cable (essentially a component video dongle) to that console's native component video cable. Consoles started supporting component video around the PlayStation 2 era, so you won't be able to use unmodified older systems with the Ripsaw. But considering many capture devices lack component support at all, this support is still a feather in the Ripsaw's cap."

  5. and as to your questions about streaming whats on your tv screen....whatever you want to stream has to have the output. I suppose you could stream from a cable box maybe? not sure.

    Hmm, very interesting, thank you for that! So it still may not work with the Gamecube, but it is possible... Definitely a thing to consider.
    And it makes sense that you wouldn't just be able to capture your TV screem, but if we can capture monitor screens, we should somehow be able to capture a TV screen without much difficulty.
