Electronic Assisted Astronomy - cameras and software

I have been experimenting with EAA setups for upcoming planetary oppositions through my long focal length scopes. Using an ASI290mini I can get passable video of Saturn and Mars, running Sharpcap3,1 , but I can't get Astrolive to run (I suspect because my 290 is only a USB2 version).
For folks doing EAA, what are the best software and cameras choices right now? What are you using?

The range of software for EAA is limited.
Sharpacp with zwo cameras. Excelllent for DSOs.
Astro live died. In fact never got off the ground.
Risingtech etc have their own very good software for their cameras.

I've used the above for DSOs but not planetary. That's a different kettle of fish ?
