I have just hooked up my VHS video player to my PC via a PCI TV card. When I watch the video's on my PC the quality is great but when I play back the recording that I have saved to my PC the quality is very grainy and destorted.
Any ideas what im doing wrong, is a tv card not enough, do I need a kit or something ?
