    I'd like to get into transfering VHS to my PC to run them off to DVD or VideoCD's.

    What would be one of the better capture devices to use? I don't want to spend a huge sum (say less than $200) but want to get something that's going to give fairly good results.

    Great price, but no audio inputs, RCA or otherwise. [​IMG]
    edit- Here's a nice looking one I found on Newegg for $80. Asus TV Tuner Card

    Most sound cards have audio in capabiity (even my c-media audio on my Asus MB has Toslink audio-in connections). So don't need it on a capture card too. The one thing I do know is that I don't wan't a tv tuner inside my PC. If I wanted to tune over the air tv, a cheap vcr has a tuner that can be used and just capture the result (composite/s-video plus audio of course).

    Doh, duh I shoulda remembered that. [​IMG] Thanks Jeff. At that price I'll more than likely get that card before Xmas.
