    I'm seeking a decent capture device for a laptop to capture video from
    svideo and rca stereo cables.. I'll be recording it right onto the
    single harddrive inside the unit ( i thought about doing the seperate
    external drive, but for now ill try the internal one)...

    I'd say I'd want at least "DVD" resolution, even though yeah, its just
    svideo...

    Do they even make any Laptop capture devices for component video or
    hdmi (for HD quality)..

    This device has to be a PC card, as I dont have a express card slot
    available.

    Here are a few I did find, not sure how good they are though (i dont
    think i really need a tuner, though it wouldnt hurt, but would like to
    keep cost minimal):

    MTVCBMCER AverMedia (has tuner, more expensive) $138

    Sabrent TV-PCB05 http://www.chiefvaluecom/product/pro...ies Notebook
    $36.99 Vista? Mpeg2?

    Kworld vs- usb2800 $39.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16815100112
    30fps 720x480, mpg1,2,4

    I'm guessing all these are capable of Mpeg 2? Mpeg 4 would be a bonus,
    but i think i need mpeg2 minimally? I'd also like it to work in
    Vista..

    Right now the Sabrent has the right price, but may not have mpeg2 or
    vista.. Nor do I know how the reviews are on that one..

    I also really hadnt considered the USB variety..

    So in summary.. My goal would be a good quality PC card one, with
    mpeg2 and vista compatibility i suppose...

    Thanks
