I am happy with the Plextor M402U, it captures very nice sound and video from a TV signal. What's more, I don't have to worry about enabling the correct Aux in or Line in for audio recording like I had to do with the TV card. It just captures the program, period. However when I tell it to capture for a designated period of time, it will sometimes stop recording partway through, for no known reason. Yes, in WinDVD I have unchecked the box that says to stop recording when the signal goes bad. Has anybody any ideas? I am in the process of updating WinDVD to the latest version in the hopes that this will fix things. But I suspect it is Windows 2000. A lot of capture programs weren't working in Win2k, some of them even refused to record at all. That's why I dumped my TV card. Perhaps a second computer loaded with Win98 would be an answer. My system is a new install of Win2k, 2.6 gHz, 512 mb ram, Asus 9520 vid card, sblive sound card, Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe motherboard, pair of Sata Raid (0) hard drives. I am a newbie, so any knowledge you have of Win2k problems with capture programs would be very much appreciated.
