I use it all the time without problem, keep in mind that people
ussually don't go around posting when everything is fine, only when
they have a problem.  I'm sure there will be many posts about what
hardware to use, etc.  My advice is to start small, one capture card,
a simple setup, you can always expand from there.

It can be some work to get everything working exactly the way you want
it to be, but once it is up and running, it stays that way.  Of course
if you like to tinker, you can break things, I do from time to time,
but it is always because I want to try something else out, not cause
myth is actually broken.
