I am going to give the ConverX PX-M402U device a try. From my research it will be the answer to all those people who 'want' to put their VHS collection onto DVD but don't want to invest in applications and hardware. Maybe it's not for P3 owners but P4 and AMD users could finally stop trying to capture video with their display cards. The bundled software package should be enough to capture files to MP1,MP2,MP4,DivX at any specified bitrate. Of course most would use the MP2 option. I'd like to hear others suggestions as far as affordable capture systems (sub $150) I have alot of people asking for custom configured computer systems from me. Until recently, I've never really offered the video aquisition to them because of the expensive software and often times hardware that are required. But hopefully this will soon change and everyone can get full screen captures that default into MP2 and output to DVD-9.
