need help choosing...
on Mar 31, 2005 at 2:05:30 am

I need advice on choosing a video capture card. I've searched high and low and can not ensure that all of my needs will be met by any one card with out spending hundreds of dollars.

I'm running XP, SP2. I have been editing DV from camcorder via firewire with WMM2.1.

I have been satisfied since I'm doing basic editing of home movies and don't have a lot time or money for anything fancy.

Now I want to convert some VHS to DV. I also would like to be able to capture TV and FM radio. I have satellite and DVR. I would like to capture some of my movies on the DVR without hacking.

First, do I need a TV tuner card to capture TV or can I capture whatever is playing on the screen?

Second, is there an inexpensive card that can do all of the above and is also compatible with WMM?
