Saw your post on the type of VCR's that can adequately support VHS to digital capture, so I have a JVC SR-V10U ordered and on the way.
I currently have a Hauppauge HVR-1800 PCI TV Tuner card in my PC.
(here's the product link: http://www.hauppauge.com/site/produc...a_hvr1850.html
From their FAQ:
What type of recordings can I make with the WinTV-HVR-1800?
Using the WinTV 7 application the WinTV-HVR-1800, will record in a transport stream (TS)
For ATSC and Clear QAM digital TV recordings, the recording format and bit rate is exactly the same as the broadcast format (i.e. ATSC 1080i is recorded at 1080i).
For NTSC analog cable TV recordings, our HardPVR is used to create Transport Stream files (TS)
Note: TS files can be converted to MPEG files using options in the WinTV 7 configuration menu.
Note: The WinTV 6 application recording are in MPEG format for both digital and analog.
Note: Not all recordings made with ATSC/QAM signals are DVD compliant
I have the Hauppauge WinTV 7 applications so hopefully I can record into TS, whatever that is.
So the basic question is whether I should get a new capture card, and if so, what do you recommend?
