I'm thinking of upgrading my current copying suite (which currently consists solely of a dvd recorder!) with a Hauppauge HD PVR 1212 as they're pretty cheap online. Is capture device good enough to encode VHS and LD? I'm after something which I can encode h.264, mpeg2 and also huffYUV lossless. I read good things about this device a few years ago but with so many capture cards on the market it's hard to know what to go for.

Many thanks.

I'm still re-testing this card, but my last test was a "no".

Hauppauge was always part of the PVR crowd (computerized TiVo), and converting tapes was not their main concern. That's very obvious with drivers, installs, features, etc. They moved to HD, and like other HD cards, SD was an afterthought, if a thought at all.
