Its a minefield out there! What I want to do is connect a vcr to my computer to transfer old videos onto DVD. What is the best way of doing that. I do not have a tv out or anything like that on my computer. Is the best way to go with a PCI card? In which case, which one is most cost effective. (Read cost effective as cheap) At some point I would like to be able to watch tv via my pc. Would a single piece of hard ware enable both scenarios? I have seen some with USB connections also. Any help would be appreciated.
