  • backing up vhs to dvd

    Hi everyone, fun little community you got going here. heres my question I've got some expensive vhs tapes that I need to transfer to dvd before there no good. what is a good video card out there to do the job? a lot of the cards I've seen have only got the TV-out. or maybe I over looked something. thanks for any help.

    An AIW R9800P should do the job.

      There are also some X800 Pros that should do the job, but they will cost a lot more.

        Jesus Christ, you don't have to buy those video cards they mentioned. Any All-In-Wonder Radeon card would do the job, also something called a Dazzle Digital video creator which has the AV plugs that you hook the VCR to, than it plugs into a USB/Firewire port. You also can always just buy a TV tuner card as well, though I would recommend the Dazzle DV creator.

            Yeah, anything from a $25 TVTuner to a high end AIW would do the job. The tuners won't give any real quality though, I too recommend a device that's just for capturing video, like the USB or Firewire Dazzles. They used to make internal cards as well, though I haven't looked into them lately, not sure if they still do.

              Hi guys, I just bought a Leadtek TV2000 XP Deluxe woo,hoo. they go in oz for about $90.00 would this be the same as Dazzle? I know what you mean you only get what you pay for. I'm used to spending money on the good gear. but this is only to do a transfer before the tape is had it. I'm sure the quality wont be that bad. {I hope}
