    I've had good luck with the ATI All-in-wonder cards. The new ones range from $150-400 but I've also seen the older models for under $50. They do capture and also have tv out. Mine came with "GuidePlus" which lets you program tv capture in advance. If you go to vcdhelp.com they have a listing of all video capture cards complete with prices and user comments.

    Dear Sir,

    I know of a website that sells hardware encoders that are not that expensive compared to other sites. Please let me know what encoder solution you think is good.

    commwiz, do you know where you can find an ATI AIW card (that does capture well) for under $50?

    http://www.cestuff.com/ I looked up. It does seem to have some capture cards, but the cheapest is $90. That's their bottom of the line.
