Hi guys, i am looking for a new capture card/ PVR for the following uses and required features :
1. Should record high quality and best possible SD, HD would be a plus from my set top box.
2. Should have components or hdmi input or both if possible.
3. Should work well with windows 7 and it will be great if it can work with mac OS (I dont mind buying an additional/thrid party app for that)
4. Should be external, usb 2/3 or firewire
5. Under $175
So far i have only found hauppauge hd pvr thats available for abt $160 and has good reviews and can work on a mac as well.
I am still looking if i have some other option like avertv or some other brand , thats possibly a little cheaper and works as good or better than hauppauge hd pvr.
Planning to buy it in a weeks time and will be using it with my dekstop that runs windows 7 and possibly in the future with a macbook pro.
File size, rendering, compressing etc are not a cause of concern as i have a powerful computer and have ample of space in my hdd.
