VHS capture via HDMI?
I've got some 20/30-year-old VHS tapes (sentimental value) that I want to capture/edit with best possible quality. I've got a combo VHS/DVD player with HDMI output, so I bought a Startech capture card with HDMI input port. But, the StreamCatcher software that came with it won't let me grab anything from any manufactured VHS tapes. I can see the scenes, but if I try to grab them, I either get an error window, or a big black HDCP screen.
Is there any good way to overcome that, and get absolute top quality, when I capture VHS?
I'm hoping there's a simple software fix, comparable to the way I can use Nero, Ulead, Adobe Premier, etc, to capture VHS video using a SuperVHS connector (I can do that; I'm just hoping/thinking HDMI might be better quality).
If not, is there some sort of box I can put between my VHS player, and my computer, with HDMI input and HDMI output ports?
