I have Pinnacle Studio Deluxe Version 8 complete with AVDV board and blueBOX hardware and my OS is ME.

I planning to buy a new pc with OS XP and want to know if I can transfer my hardware/software to the new machine. I note however that versions 9 & 10 appear to be s/w only with no mention of the above h/w hence my query. (I have vers 9 as yet unused!)

I would prefer to retain this h/w since it provides analogue inputs/outputs, video and SVHS which would be additional to the IEEE-1394 digital firewire link.

My efforts to make contact with Pinnacle have been a waste of time unless someone can advise me otherwise!

I would be very grateful for some help.

I use Pinnacle 8 with an analogue input via PCI slot and XP Pro.Also use firewire input from my current Camcorder,. Both with no real problems

You should be able to use the card with Version 9 I have it but depending on what and how I use can get out of sink Video\Sound

PS you choose the card in Settings

Version 10 seems to be currently "buggy". I use v943 for video editting on XP SP2. No sync probs. Ocaasionally freezes/closes. But not a prob if you know it can happen ie its 90% good. David

It's got it all there but cannot be relied on from my point, as I have different input devices

Many thanks for all of your responses.

Your reply is what I have in mind since that is what I have in my present system. However, will I have to load the new machine with H/W and S/W of vers 8 and then update with my unused vers 9?
Also, is there a download for the AVAV board? This is why I have tried to contact Pinnacle. (Without sucess!)
