    We are trying to stream live video to a member subscription site. It's a short show stream. The trick is that we want to be able to do this using an HD video camera that gives us greater flexibility to record the show in HD as it streams as well as offers the advantages of a professional camera (things like remote control operation, high quality auto focus, manual white balance, external shotgun mic, etc)

    We have done this in the past using a pinnacle analog capture card in a Windows XP system. However, the system was old and unstable, and we need to move our operation to our new Windows 7 64 bit system.

    We've been unable to find a solution for this. We tried putting the card in the new computer, but the cam platform, which recognized the video signal when the Pinnacle card was in the XP system, will not recognize the signal in the Windows 7 system.

    Does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing?
