My “inlaws” are gettig a new PC. They want this PC to be able to record their old 8mm tapes so they can be put on DVD.
Question is: what is the best hardware to buy to do this. As they are on a somewhat limited budget, the capture hardware should not cost more than €100.
I figured that these are the options:
- VGA card with composite/Svideo in
- TV card with composite/Svideo in
- an external (USB) capture device that encodes the input video to MPEG2
- a real dedicated capture card
Besides that it shouldn’t cost too much, it should be easy to use. That means that they don’t want to hassle with CCE settings etc (and that means that the USB devices are more in favour than the others). Problem is that I have little experience in this field. What do the experts here think about it?
Thanx in advance
