Hi there, I need to know what to buy to convert some camcorder clips (from an old VHSC) to DVD. I currently have an XFX 6600GT graphics card with no TV-in and the camera uses an s-video 5 connector, so presumably I need to buy a PCI TV card? There seem to be a bewildering array of TV cards with all the features under the sun but all I want is the capability to input through s-video 5 or 9 in order to record the vid on the PC. If I could get some TV functionality on the PC without much extra cost I'd probably consider it though.

I have no idea what program to use in order to record the input either, suggestions of what card spec and software I need would be welcome! Thanks :whistling:

I am not an expert on this kind of thing but I found something that might work for you, here:

And here is a variety of things:

There are many different formats you can plug into them.

Hi axemanjon.
I bought this one about a year ago:
http://www.leadtek.c...p;pronameid=252

It came with software to record all the Videos to DVD as well as a few Ulead Video editing products.
I just played the Video and then pressed record.
It also plays FM radio, has a remote, and has digital television. I connect the XBox to it sometimes.
