    Hello and good day to all

    I am looking to convert a bunch of hi8mm (analog) to dvd with my pc. I am on a tight budget (say $100Us or less) for the device. Is there a device out there that anyone recommends for this price and that will still give me good quality video and audio?

    Thanks
    Chris

    I was looking at the Leadtek WinFast 2000 XP for about $50 USD. Also I was looking at the ATI AIW cards (7500 and 9000). I have seen the All in Wonder Cards mention but no particular series of card. Would these be better than the Winfast 2000 XP?

    Not sure if this will do what I need or not. Your expert advice is needed. Also if there is a better product out there let me know..

    Thanks
    Chris

    Well if you are Looking for a Card under $100 you will probably end up haveing to get a TV Card...
    You should try to get one that has a 10 bit decoder chip ,I hear the New Asus TV Cards are Quite good...

    If you get the Asus TV Card with the 10 Bit Decoder Chip then yes I would recomend it over an ATI Card accept maybe an All In Wonder 9800 Pro card but those will run you $300-$400 and for that Price you can get a Profecinal Analogue/Digital Converter which would Produce the best Possible Quality...The Leadtech Expert also uses a 10 bit decoder but there are also Many Posts on this forum about the Varius Problems Poeple have with this Device......
