Here what I got.
I have tons of VHS tape waiting to be Captured. And there’s tons of variety of capture devices available on the market; video card, pci card, USB devices, Firewire devices… you name it.
I’ve been watching around for a while and I can’t make up my mind. What would be best for me and what’s the best device/brand.
First. I wanted to wait till the next Radeon x800 AIW to be able doing my captures and have also the hability to watch tv on it and all, but I am a graphic designer, and I work with two monitors. AIW don’t usually support that.
USB device. Tons of brand and functions. They usually are USB2 which I still don’t have ATM. I heard some people have trouble to get sharp and clean captures with them… not stable capture.
Firewire Device. Same like USB. I do have a Firewire socket tho. Don’t know about the stability of the captures.
PCI cards. I’ve been lookin through www.tigerdirect.ca and there’s some sweet cards like that one: http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicati...4030&CatId=1425
Can also capture TV . I just don’t know how are the quality of these.
Any of you have experiences with these devices and recommendations?
