I am interested in a cheap PC solution that will retain the current quality, such as it is, of the recording. Each Hi8 tape (35 - 40 tape archive) holds up to 120 minutes. Does such an animal exist? I was considering purchasing a LiteOn DVD burner from NewEgg which does both the DVD-R and DVD-RW formats. According to the manual, these formats are what my Denon 2900 prefer. The age of these tapes range from 1 month to 10 years. My PC does have a Gainward GeForce4 Ti4200 which does have an S-video input but I’ve never used. It came bundled with WinCoder/WinProducer software also. The documentation claims to be able to record up to 720x480 resolution with WinCoder. Would this DVD burner, video card and software give me what I’m looking for? Any feedback would be appreciated.
