    Hello, I am in need of some help. I am looking for a way to capture some home movies i have to VCD Quality video so i can burn them since my tapes are degrading a bit already. I was looking at this card and it seems perfect but i thought i would try and get some input on it from users who have owned or own one currently. How's the quality of the capture? Audio? What formats can u capture too? Can u watch T.V in full screen? Any problems with VIA Chipsets and the card.? Or problems in WinXP? Or maybe suggestions for another card? Thanks for any suggestions,comments and help.

    Below are my 2 main choices.

    a guy name 'skepper' had this to say:
    i have a Belkin USB Video Bus which is a short lead with Analog video -> USB adapters. I love these things, they are cheap (0 AU from computer markets) and do the job perfectly for those who dont have a dv with firewire. everyone has a usb port. I use it regularly for webcasting, even from my dv. they come with their own edit suites though u are right to use premiere. i love handy little gadgets like this, and imho analog cap cards should take a hint from the dodo

    Anyone know how good the Hauppauge range of anaolog/digital TV tuner cards are? They read very well, but looks like they'll cost about $600-$700.
