I’m looking for a card that’s sole purpose is to convert safety videos on VHS from a VCR to .avi's then maybe to dvds.

Is a TV card the best idea for this? anyone have any recommendations been awhile since I have followed them.

Ati's tv tuners are a good route to do this.

I have converted a few of my friends VHS' to formats for tv's and dvd's.

You should be able to use Hauppauge cards for the same, or Pinaccle products.

They are all good.

if your looking for vhs to dvd, just buy a vhs to dvd recorder. something they would sell at best buy. It would probably the easiest way to go. In my opinion.

I also need the functionality of having them as files. We use a file server to access safety information and use media player to play them. That way they don’t have to carry around a dvd.

Do what celtic suggests. Then stick the dvd in any computer and rip it using Nero. Handling and compressing TV card files will be HD space and time comsuming.

And I beleive ATI uses a proprietary format that needs to be converted or a special viewer installed on each machine. Can't remember for sure.

Running through a video card is too much like work.

if it does, it's the first i've heard of it. anyway it would come with WDM drivers so any capturing application will do :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
