If you’re wondering how easy it is to set up the Roxio HD Pro, well, out of the box, it’s easy to set up right away. Fundamentally, the unit sits between your console and TV, so you’ll need a little dedicated space for it, and also some spare video and audio cables, as the cables that go into your TV, will now go into the unit, so you will need output cables from the unit, back into your TV. The thing that also dictates where you are going to locate it, is the connection then to your PC or laptop. You can use a long USB cable connection, but it’s preferable to have both of them located within a few feet of each other.
