I have recently starting making DVD discs of older or unique VHS tapes. To do this I have been recording the VHS tapes through a SIMA GODVD filter into a Phillips DVR-75 stand-alone recorder on a DVD+RW disc. Then I take the DVD+RW disc and run it through DVD Decrypter in IFO mode to generate a single VOB file. If the audio is bad then I convert the VOB into a WAV file and bring the WAV file into Adobe Audition to apply filtering then I save the file as an AC3 format and then I bring the VOB file and the AC3 file into DVDLAB and create a DVD.
Since I will be doing more of this work with home movies I am wondering if this really is the best method? I have looked at the video and audio capture cards on newegg.com and I am trying to figure out which is the best solution? Phillips to DVD+RW or a capture card? Here is the one I have been looking at:
Do these look like good cards? or is it crap? Should I be looking at one with a 10Bit video converter and combfilter? What about freezing and glitches? What software is the best for capturing the video and audio and creating a VOB file I can import into DVDLAB? I am also concerned about the ones with TV and FM tuners do they cause more random noise on the video?
