Can someone here give me good advice???.
I am wanting to buy a cheap capture card. All I want to do with it is capture video from a video player and convert to DVD. Can anyone advise on the best one to buy for just this purpose??
Thanks!

I'd advise getting a hardware encoder, which means the card does all the hard work and your PC if free for you to use.

Leadtek
I've got this.

Hauppauge

From what I've read the Hauppauge cards have a macrovision decoder inbuilt, which means you shouldn't need a seperate box to remove macrovision. Just search for Provision Macrovision on google.co.uk

Personally I'd stay away from the cheap software encoders at about 25-40 and get a slightly more expensive hardware encoder.

Thanks! It is good to get an idea of what is required. I see there is a Leadtek one on ebay, will try for that.
