I have used a K2 analogue to digital converter up 'til now, manufactured by Keane

Thanks John

Windows 8 was a big change from previous versions of Windows and as such a lot of hardware is not compatible, including this. It is down to how Windows 8 manages the hardware, which is quite different.

I cannot say if updates will be provided to make it compatible, as nothing has been communicated, and advise you ton get a windows 8 compatible Analogue to Digital converter to run S-Video.

This device does this, and is working with Windows 8.

It will work with Power Director. But you either need to get this device, or downgrade to Windows 7 in order to resume working.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
