    VT3 card - no daughter card

    I just purchased a VT3 card from ebay. It came with the 4.6 upgrade.

    I need to switch 3 cameras live. I noticed that it has no daughter card.

    will i have to buy an sx-8 or sx-84 box? dos the sx-8 & sx-84 come with a daughter card??

    Could i get a used sx8??

    will i have to upgrade to vt5 to use windows 7?

    You need both an SX-8/SX-84 and the daughter card. The daughter cards originally came with the SX-8. These are probably still available from NewTek. If not let me know and I can dig one up.

    Yes, you will need VT[5] to use Win7.

    Thanks Jeff,

    i have contacted a dealer here in the UK and they say that the Video Toaster was discontinued last month. So they no longer get any parts?

    Could you get one for me?
