    Can anyone clue me in to the best way to take an analog video signal (VHS / VHS-C / etc.) record it to the HDD as an mpeg (as opposed to AVI) edit, then burn to video cd?

    Pinnacle Systems, http://www.pinnaclesys.com/start.asp , offer an array of products that will do this. If you can spend a little extra, go for their DC 2000 capture and playback board. You will also need a fast dedicated HDD and fast bus. This would allow you to capture an NTSC signal with component or S. It also bundles with some good editing tools. Once you have the video source in your HDD, you can output to the latest MPEG format. I currently have the Pinnacle DC 30 capture and playback card, but NTSC output is limited to AVI, which doesn't compress well.
    Best regards,

    If you just want to make video CD quality MPEGs, then just get a Dazzle.

    I got a dazzle DV80 for my notebook, it works quite well for recording the videos, not as flexible as I'd like it to be, but it was well worth the money... Composite and Svideo input, built in audio inputs...
    I have a couple samples i can send if you want (in ASF, DivX... I can also record some in MPEG2, MPEG1 or anything else possible on the Dazzle if you want me to).. ICQ me (try my link in my sig, i wanna test it out, if not, im 8593599) or MSN me ([email protected])..
