As a hobbiest only, would it benefit me to upgrade the software for VT5 only or will I have to get a new Toaster hardware board? I normally work with only one or two camera/input decks .....no live broadcast.

Depends on how fast a machine you've got. If your PC sports a Front-Side Buss speed of 800 MHz or greater, then go for it. Else, you'll stand to get lackluster performance in certain Post-production operations.

Go to http://www.NewTek/Products/ and click on the VT section to get to the minimum hardware requirements; Check them out, before even thinking about other implications for upgrading. My 2 cents, anyway. Be well, Ray.
