Card to enable VHS input to PC?

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by George Newton, Mar 29, 2005.

  1. I have an older JVC VCR with s-video (and rca) input and output.

    How feasible is it to connect the s-video output from the
    VCR to my PC? (I can run the audio separately to my receiver
    if necessary.)

    I've heard about "capture cards" and also about VIVO,
    but I'm not interested in recording/capturing the VHS
    input, only watching it on my PC.

    Is a VIVO jack a two-way s-video?

    Is this type of card what I need:
    POWERCOLOR ATI RADEON 9250 Video Card

    You might try at alt.comp.periphs.videocards.ati
    Or just look it up on your card maker's web site.

  3. I can't think of a single video input/output card that does not include
    capture. But regardless of that there are inexpensive capture cards made by
    Hauppauge that will allow not only the viewing of your VHS tapes on the
    computer monitor, but also have a 128 channel television tuner onboard.

    Look around at http://www.hauppauge.com They are even cheaper than the ATI
    All-In-Wonder cards. Actually, I believe many Hauppauge cards are available
    at local Best Buy, CompUSA, Circuit City, Office Depot, Staples and just
    about anywhere you can think of.
