    I recently purchased a Plextor M402U encoder and am capturing some VHS
    tapes. I am currently using the latest stable version of VirtualDub
    since it is such a powerful program. However I have run into an issue
    and trying to find a way around it. Is there a way to set VirtualDub
    to stop capturing when the end of the tape is reached? Right now it
    continues to capture even when the static appears.

    I suppose the way around this is to edit out the static after the
    capture is complete but I was curious if VirtualDub has a way to stop
    capturing automatically. Also with our situation the end of the tape
    varies so we can't use the timed stop capture setting.

    Thank you very much for the feedback, this group has been very
