Hunt for HDMI capture device

Which Capture Card should I get for streaming or recording? Last Update:Mar 14, 2014
I also want to mention a special thing you have to be aware of with all capture cards below the 500$ range. You cannot capture 1080p 60fps footage at 60fps with a USB/PCI-E x1 or even Thunderbolt device (currently available). The Avermedia Live Gamer HD is the only card I currently know of that supports downscaling this footage to 720p while keeping 60fps. Still if you want to record/stream on 1080p you will only get 30fps as the bandwidth seems to be not sufficient for full 1080p 60fps output of the card over PCI-E x1 slots. For the Hardcore User, Kona/Datapath/BlackMagic all offer more powerful capture cards which can Input up to 2K/4K resolutions. The prices vary between 800-2000$.

From comment:
I can't get it to work on Windows 10. It'll detect it once I have the drivers installed. But when I try to use it (I've tried using the Honestech DVR that it comes with as well as OBS and XSplit), they all give a blank capture.  And apparently the drivers are really only for up to Windows 8.1 anyway

WORD: Document display differently on different computers (image moved, layout changed, etc)

Google: word opened other|different computer|version image change|move

April 8, 2013 Pictures Move on their Own
When you place a picture in a Word document, you can place it either inline or floating.
Inline pictures are great and will stay exactly where you put them because they are treated like any other character in a paragraph.
The drawback to inline pictures, of course, is that text doesn't wrap around them, and therefore you may not get the exact layout you want.
Floating pictures are a different story. Floating pictures can do just that—float. Also, the picture can be formatted so that text floats around the picture. To control the floating behavior of the pictures, Word provides an anchor that indicates a point in the document with which the picture is associated.

Jul 23, 2011 Why does the appearance (or layout) of my document change when I open it on a different machine?
Changing printer drivers will almost always change the layout at least slightly and sometimes radically
Number of ways to minimize the changes that can occur when you change printers or drivers :
- Don't use hard page breaks!
- Instead, use style and paragraph formatting to keep text together.
What works best to preserve the look of your document, however, is to select the printer on which you will ultimately be printing the document (even if it is not connected to the printer where you're editing)
If you are emailing the document to others and preserving the page layout is critical, one solution is to email your document in Adobe PDF format.

Jul 26, 2010 What happens when I send my document to someone else? Will Word mess up my formatting?
All documents are based on a template. Templates have names that end in ".dot" or, for Word 2007 and Word 2010, ".dotx" or ".dotm".
[Questions answered on the article:]
What's the relationship between the styles in a document and its template?
What happens when Word opens a document?
But you don’t have my template. How does that work?
What happens when I use custom styles?
What about copying text from one document to another?
Truth: Page breaks can be affected by the printer you use
...Avoid empty paragraphs. Don't press Enter to create space between paragraphs.
...Avoid hard page breaks. Control text flow using styles and paragraph formatting.

Aug 9, 2006 Why does my Microsoft Word document display differently on different computers?
I have a document which was created in Word XP and is 226 pages. When I send it to a client who is using Word 2003, it looks totally different and is over 330 pages.
To be honest, you’re trying to do something that Word documents are NOT really intended to do. ... Word is NOT really about making the document look exactly the same everywhere.
The most common reason documents look different on one machine as compared to another is the printer.
Another possible difference is the use of fonts which are not common to all systems.
My bottom line recommendation is simply to create a PDF, authoring your document so that the PDF comes out the way you want it to, and then share that with your client. If you need to share editable Word documents, then simply realize that they will not display, or print, exactly the same everywhere.

Adonit How-To: Replace Jot Discs

Adonit Jot Pro Stylus Review
From comment section:
How dose the Jot preform when the disc is not on it?
For a capacitive screen stylus there needs to be about 6mm of contact
Normal capacitive stylii are like thick crayons. The Jot mimics this.
From Jon:
we never claimed that the discs would not break
Disc shelf life (regardless of how much it is used), cannot be expected to be more than six months, since the adhesive between the laminations loses its strength over time.
