I recently upgraded to El Capitan and RECentral, the streaming application I use to play my Wii U on my iMac, no longer starts up reliably. Sometimes it just beachballs for 10 minutes until an image is displayed.
Is there a fix for this?

Looks like they just put up a new firmware for the Extremecap U3. Recentral now launches immediately for me. Also - after I updating the firmware - the beta version stopped working. I went back to version 1.2.15 and all is well.
I have the same issue, for now. I think the only fix is to wait until the RECentral starts up, until we get an update from Avermedia.
Bad news. Avermedia not working on fix for El Capitan compatibility https://twitter.com/michalcerny/status/662779009869156352
Looks like El Cap 10.11 support is indeed coming but has been delayed. Just received this from support:
"We are truly sorry for the delay regarding RECentral for Mac OSX 10.11 El Capitan release. The reason for this partially is because for this new software we also have to prepare a totally new firmware. Our engineers are working on final improvements at the moment, the expected release is due to the second half of this January.
Thank you very much for your understanding! Best regards AVerMedia Support"
The beta version don't work for me. I installed Windows through Bootcamp as temporary solution.
There has been a firmware update release for the ExtremeCap U3 for El Capitan. The only problem is it seems that if you update to this (I have not tried it yet), you'll be locked into using the device only with your Mac. If this would be an issue for you, you may want to hold off until they come up with a more general update that supports Windows and Mac both.
Thank you for your interest in this question.
