I posted this on AVS forum and got ZERO responses. SO, come afterdawn addicts, don't let me down! I am wanting to move old VHS and Hi-8 tapes to DVD (just like everyone else on this forum). I have tried to do so using this configuration: Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 800 megahertz AMD Athlon Board: HOT_AI61 AMD-75X-W977 6A6S2H29 Bus Clock: 100 megahertz 240.06 Gigabytes Usable Hard Drive Capacity 165.04 Gigabytes Hard Drive Free Space ATAPI CD-RW CW5205 [CD-ROM drive] TDK DVDRW420N [CD-ROM drive] 448 Megabytes Installed Memory NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400 1394 Net Adapter Hauppauge WinTV PVR PCI II (26xxx) Quite frankly, the quality is bad and the time it takes is ridiculous. Can anyone recommed to me which pieces of this I should keep and which pieces I need to replace to have a good system for video capture? I don't want to spend a fortune, so I hope to get out of this for a few hundred dollars. But I will try not to let something as silly as money stand in the way! So, afterdawn, what do I keep, what should I replace, and what should I replace it with?????
