Forgive me if this is the wrong board.
I'm looking to upgrade my old TV tuner with something that will give me better quality. Right now I'm using a Hauppauge Win-TV PVR-150 with CyberLink PowerDirector 8. I'm using it to capture standard-def gaming content (example
) via s-video and occasionally composite. The video it produces is a little choppier than the source material; what you see here is the best I could muster.
Right now I'm considering the Grass Valley Canopus ADVC110, based on this info/review
and this test video
. It captures in .avi instead of mpeg2 like my current hardware. However it's an external firewire device, and I'd like to stick to internal 32-bit PCI or PCIE, preferably the former. I'm currently editing in WinXP Pro but will likely need to edit in Win7 in the future. I'm generally happy with the software for my needs, but I might switch to Lightworks.
Any suggestions? Budget is about $150 for a new device, you might talk me into spending more.
