Recording Video: Best new Capture card replacement?
 
Hi
I currently have a matrox marvel G200 and an older win tv card. I use my marvel to capture but need to replace it as most of the newer games wont play on it.

Still want to capure but need a new graphics card, so do i buy a new graphic card and keep the old wintv card or should i buy a new wintv card as well.

Whats the best win tv to go for i have looked at win tv pvr any good?
or am i'm better with one of the lower cost wintv cards?

thanks for any help
kenny

PS have about 200 to spend

Hi kenny,

It depends what you want to do. If you want the best quality on a low budget card, and you have a large drive to capture, go with a WinTV GO and capture to AVI with the Huffy CODEC. Then compress off-line with TMPEG. If you want real-time compression, you can also use the same card with something like WinDVR. It's pretty good software, but VCD quality is not so good. The SVCD quality is pretty good. I've read that the WinTV PVR real-time capture is not very good as far as quality is concerned. Basically just about any card that has a BT-878 chip set, combined with the BTWINCAP drivers ( http://btwincap.sourceforge.net ) does a pretty descent job.

Do you have access to WinXP, far better for multimedia than Win2k.
