Pinnacle Systems movie box USB users manual. How can I get one?

I think you have to install the "Pinnacle Studio" Video Editing Software BEFORE you attach the USB Cable to the Pinnacle MovieBox. After the Studio software is installed on your PC, your PC should automatically recognize the MovieBox. You shouldn't really need a Manual for the MovieBox, it should just be a "Plug and Play" device once you install Studio. The MovieBox just translates the Analog Video signal (like the Output from a VCR- the yellow red and white cables) to a Digital signal into your PC via a USB Input. At that point on the Studio software, the "Capture" tab should recognize the signal from your "Source" (VCR, Videocamera, etc.) Then you can edit your captured video. If your PC still doesn't "see" the Moviebox, there is a dropdown box in the "Capture" settings with selections for "Capture Device". It may have a couple of choices besides "Pinnacle MovieBox" such as a "webcam" or some other video capture device. Just select the "Moviebox". The one other problem you may encounter is that some older versions of "Pinnacle Studio" don't work on Windows 10. If so, your only easy option may be to try it on an old Windows XP machine. I like the older versions of "Studio" more than the newer versions, so I still use an old off-line XP computer. Hope that works.

My pinacle Studio 16 is not running smooth if I edit AVCHD 1080. my computer is running windows 7 64 bit and Ram is 4 processor is core i5

Although your systems appears to meet or exceed the minimum system requirements for Pinnacle Studio, in HD 1080 mode, the system can easily be overwhelmed.
In HD mode the demands on the video card increase geometrically.
You don't mention what video card you are using or the amount of dedicated memory that it has. If you are running off a system that uses the main RAM for the monitor's video or an underpowered video card then the system may not run smoothly.
