Adventures in capture card shopping - Holo3DGraph, Matrox, Aja Kona, ATI
Since enough time has passed, I thought I'd share this back and forth conversation. :)

(VHS to DVD, LD to DVD, BETA to DVD conversions. Will be building the computer in about 1 year from now.)

I may also be doing HD work in the future, and the one on ebay has the HD upgrade.
Please tell me if this will work for what I need....

I've never heard of it. That looks to be a card for playing video that I can see, not capturing. That's what I saw in about 2 minutes of Google searching. It's older than latter-generation ATI AIW Radeon cards, from what I can see. Most posts are in the 2002-2003 timeframe.

I'm not ever going to run a projector, so this might not be for me? :confused:

You were helping me with getting a ATI all in one, and I thought I found one. But it ended up being a freakin European PAL one with scarts. So my search has continued.

If I have to spend a grand to get the best one out there, but new, I'm cool with that. I'm just out to get the best capture card.... (Too bad I'm about 8 years too late... :o )

Thanks for your help insofar...

If it captures video, I'm not seeing it.

I wouldn't. There are unresolved issues with getting it to work in XP or beyond.
For $70 plus shipping, you could get one of our extra ATI All In Wonder cards. Considered that route?

Yep. Expensive, but it works.

And that's where we ended the conversation. :D
