    I currently have firewire in and out and Premiere Pro but I have a project
    coming up that will require capture from SVHS, Hi-8 and DVD so I'm looking
    at some analog capture options. I'm trying to decide between a Canopus
    ADVC300 and a ADS Pyro AV Link Professional. A lot of people have
    recommended the Canopus and the image enhancement features look impressive
    but the ADS Pyro has component inputs which would be useful in capturing the
    DVD footage (provided I can't grab the footage directly off the disk) and
    comes with Premiere Pro 1.5 (which would allow me to sell my older version
    of Premiere on eBay for a couple of dollars), Encore DVD and Audition.

    So do the image enhancement features and overall quality of the Canopus make
    it a better choice over the ADS Pyro? Does anyone have any opinions on the
    ADS Pyro?
