Hi, I m looking to buy a new usb capture card that has the following features ;

1. Composite yellow video input.
2. Records macrovision protected content.
3. Can record pal video 576i ( in 50fps if possible)
4. Under $120
5. Usb 2.0 only as need it for laptop.

I was looking at hauppauge usb live 2 but it cannot record macrovision protected content. I dont want to buy hauppauge hd pvr as i just need composite video recording and dont want to spend excess of $150.

All suggestions are welcomed , thank you!

The $26 MCM filter described here should do the trick, assuming you have a YWR RCA source feeding your current card?

 

Edit: Oops, doesn't do PAL AFAIK! Maybe one of the other filters in that help file?

I'm probably stating the obvious: The purpose of Macrovision is to prevent recording (copying) the source; all legal recording devices support it.

So unless you can find some sort of gray-market chinese device, you are going to need a video filter between your source and any proper capture card.
