Video Capture Card recommendations, please

hey all

I want to get a video capture card. essential is nice quality analog in that I can plug my vcr into. tv out is nice, and tuner is not necessary.

I've been poking around videohelp and comparing with a long list of prices I got at the store up the street but I'm not making much progress here.

please help!

Re: Video Capture Card recommendations, please

I'm looking into the Audigy Video editor. External, lots of options and 24bit, 48000k capabilities. What do you think?

Right now I'm using the Dazzle DVC 150.

Re: Video Capture Card recommendations, please

transferred a few shows on a Sony DVMC-DA2, wasnt too impressed with the sony boxes [the Kyuss show was transferred using that one actually]

also used the low-end Canopus device [i think its the 110 maybe ??]--it was aight, very barebones...but better than the sony imo...

alot of the pros use Miranda, Focus, etc. systems -- which are great, if you want to sell a car to pay for it

i've been thinking about picking the new Edirol device up...i'll let ya know if i do...but here's the specs on it

I have a Canopus ADVC-300 and it's great. It has a line time base corrector & 3D noise reduction. I've noticed a definite increase in video quality from SVHS/VHS, Hi8 transfers. Haven't had any problems w/ it, even on some beat-up tapes. I recommend that one.

Re: Video Capture Card recommendations, please

thanks very much for the tips, got a couple "votes" for Canopus and the ADVC-300 looks like the best choice for me (that I've seen so far). Gotta save some extra money now!!
