Nix Capture card not recognized in OBS

I just purchased a NIX Capture Card and I am trying to connect it in OBS. In the Source Config it has a blank for “device” and there is not drop down available. How do I get OBS to recognize my device? I have connected everything to my xbox as directed in all of the online tuts but nothing seems to work so I can select FHD Capture.

  2. Please provide the Amazon Order ID associated with your Plugable NIX capture card
  3. Please keep everything connected, then navigate to our PlugDebug tool ( and follow the instructions there

Thanks for giving us a chance to help!


In addition to Mitchell’s instructions, one thing you may want to try is just plugging the capture card into a different USB port.

We look forward to hearing from you via email so we can assist further if that doesn’t help.
