The actual moviebox makes it very easy to connect from vcr or tv using the composite or or s-video ports.The software IMHO is another matter as i have had a lot of trouble with it freezing or shutting down when you happen to be in the middle of doing something and you lose the lot.Check out the Pinnacle forums to see what your in for.Hopefully you may be one of the lucky ones and have no problems.
Am trying to pluck up courage to order Canopus ADVC 100. I know this is an expensive solution but after reading the various threads & links I feel it will be cheaper in the long run rather than get something that only just does the job & then have frustration when running it & possible upgrade later. Will update thread when things come to fruition
Thanks for all your help. Yesterday the local camera shop had a JVC GR-D70 Digital Video Camera at only £150 more than ADVC 100 would have cost so I bought it. It has DV/Analogue in & out. I was late home yesterday but did find time to successfully copy a Hi8 tape to it via S-Video lead. Looking forward to the weekend when I should have more time to try it out, so watch out for mor cries for help on this Forum!
