I got a pvr-500 as a gift and got it working under vector. My cable company switched to
digitally encrypted signal so I haven't used it in a while.
I want to convert my old vhs tapes to dvd so I tried connecting either vhs coax or rca
output to the card but the picture is awful. Even my video camera output looks bad
when it was great a while ago.
I searched the web and came across this posting on my card (I have version b).http://forums.snapstream.com/vb/home-theater-pc-discussion/33675-hauppauge-wintv-pvr-500-mce.html
I sent an e-mail to the manufacturer but I doubt they will be helpful.
I would like to get another card to capture video input to write a dvd. Does anyone have a working
setup? Card, software, settings? My digital camera can record the vhs output and then transfer via
firewire but this seems tedious for lots of tapes.
I searched the web and found lots of suggested configurations but I don't know much about video capture
and conversion. I have mplayer and vlc installed.
Other posting I have seen imply that only the most recent computer hardware can handle vhs to dvd
transfer. I have a Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.80GHz with 1Gig RAM.
I was looking at NewEgg and saw this:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815144031
Anyone know if this usb device is supported in linux?
