Details on this Atari Falcon capture setup? 68k machines (Mac, Amiga, etc) really weren't all that fast for video capture. Most of them compressed YUV video using hardware (Video Toaster Flyer, Avid...

There are plenty of ways to time shift/record TV these days that don't involve VHS and result in bit perfect copies. Blank tapes aren't particularly valuable, heck you can still buy them new in...

I run just the AIW as a video card. No issues, but be aware if using a CRT that the onboard DAC sucks and is blurry at high refresh rates.

The E4700 should be more than enough for capturing standard definition video real time. The Core2Extreme is overkill for the application.

Any Core2 CPU is going to blow a Pentium D out of the water, plus they run alot cooler. When running the i865 chipset, FSBs above 800Mhz aren't officially supported, so faster DDR RAM is needed to...

For AGP Systems, I generally go with Intel i865 based boards. You get Intel stability plus SATA ports that actually work right. The vast majority are Socket 478 and 15+ years old at this point. If...
