Video capture from a VCR

  Woolwell 17:05 20 Mar 2006

I have some old VHS tapes (some are old cine transferred to tape) which I now want to transfer to PC and then burn on DVD. Does anyone have any recommendations for a USB video capture device?

A Twinhan Freeview DVB-ter Digital + Audio (D+A) TV card will provide the means to do this, along with inputs from other devices such as a games console.

It also comes in handy for watching TV..:-)

I haven't used mine for this purpose yet but, no doubt when I get time.....

have/can you edit the recorded programmes? eg to remove adverts etc? i use sony movie studio as a rule, which supports mpeg2. have virtual dub too.

i am interested in getting a tv card, and notice you have reccomended this one often. does the card use a lot of system resources when running? or can you run other tasks easily?

thanks in advance

Agree with wjrt, although I don't have the Asda one. I have the Liteon.

I also have a USB capture unit (Dazzle Fusion)
But it takes up to 7 hours to transfer a 3 hour VHS tape to DVD.
