Overview

The CuteBox is the easiest and best way to turn your laptop or desktop into an entertainment center. It allows you to watch analog television on your computer while even allowing you to record live TV onto your hard drive.

The CuteBox accepts both S-Video and Composite (RCA) sources, allowing you to capture TV or even video from your VCR or video camera. It is perfect for turning old family videos into DVDs or just for putting them on your hard drive for safe keeping.

How To Use the CuteBox

Using the CuteBox is easy. Simply use the supplied USB cable and connect the CuteBox to your laptop or desktop computer. Another supplied cable with both an S-Video connector and RCA connectors allows you to connect your video source to the CuteBox.

An included software CD allows you to TV tune and even capture video, virtually turning your computer into a TiVo.

Pros: Works as advertised if you can get the software to work - Recording is good and editing program included is very good as well. Spent an hour with Sewell tech trying to figure out problem with sound - Last option was to disconnect the USB Telebox Adapter for VoIP(SW-4765) Excellent support from Sewell on their products

Cons: If you use the USB Telebox Adapter for VoIP(SW-4765)there is a conflict with the sound. You must disconnect the USB on the sw-4765 to get sound on the Cute Box

Does the VT2300 work with Windows Vista? I mean are there drivers for it or even if I can run it as a Windows XP Compatible program using backwards compatibility?

No, I'm sorry. Unfortunately as this time this does not work with Windows Vista and it also does not run as a Windows XP compatible program. We apologize for the inconvenience.
