Hello,

Currently we have a Radeon ATI X300SE PCIE video card which has no video-in so we can not convert our analogue VCR/Cam video footage to VCD, but we would like to.
What would be the best approach? ie buy a video capture card, TV tuner or upgrade our video card to one which can capture video (I dont really like the X300 anyway).
Dont want to spend a lot of money here. Any ideas fellows? ie any recommended brands?

A video capture card is the ticket. Most video cards don't support video capture, that's a totally separate operation. I have the Adaptec VideoOh! USB 2.0 video capture module, but there are cheaper alternatives. You can either buy an internal card, or one of the many video capture devices that connect to the USB. A TV tuner isn't what you want, unless it also takes in video.

You are right JohnWill an external video capture device would be the way to go, could use it on our laptops as well then. I was just thinking whats the best bang for the buck and a TV tuner card which could capture video would also give us a TV signal to play with although we don't really need this functionality, so guess we should stick with a dedicated capture device as you suggest, probably better quality as well - thanks.
