I have just bought a usb capture device, it's a tevion dvd maker vs-usb2800d. It comes complete with pvr plus and also power producer gold 2.0 by cyberlink. The program i've tried is the pve plus. So far i can only capture in avi or mpg1 although mp2, mp4 and dvd pal are all options. If i choose mpg2 or dvd pal my picture is very clear but stuttering and going very slow. If i choose mpg4 it gives me a warning that no mpeg4 codec is installed and that i should download and install mpeg4 or divix codec from microsoft. I've looked but can't find one. I have downloaded and installed dirext 9 and this has made no change. All i want to do is transfer my old vhs home movies to dvd and then maybe my other original vhs tapes. I don't want to loose any quality if possible. When i capture in avi and then convert to mpg (dvd) the picture is rubbish, very fuzzy. My system is inel celeron 2.7ghz, 512 mb ddr, 1 80gig + 1 120gig hd and 3d AGP Geforce FX5200 64mb with tv out. I'm not connected to a tv just a vcr. Is this system big enough and is there something else i need. The pvr plus comes with a mpeg enocoder as part of the program. I bought the usb device because i tried a pci tv/fm radio card connected via my tv and was only able to capture in mpeg1. Any please advise me. I have no experience at this at all. The program also offers being able to capture direct from vhs tape and burn directly to dvd disk. I tried this too but the disk failed. The codecs in the pvr program are microsoft v1,v2,v3 and divix.
