scar, before you go through all the trouble and time.....
Getting Transport file to play effortlessly on you pc is another story, it's much diifficult and complicated than setting the capdvhs right. Yet, it's not glitch free and it does require powerful pc to load and search in middle of transport file. But depends of file size or broascast channels, some just choke on seeking. The great part of all, you can't transfer the file back to 6412 for playback, 6412 doesn't support that. So, you can't simply use pc as storage DVR for 6412, If that's the intention.
That's why i drop pc in the first place even i spend tons of money to built a media sever and a FX51 box tweaked for dvd/hd play back to my projector.
The reason i get back to it because
One.... it's fun and i tend to get bored with electronic toy if it's too simple.
Two, it's funny how i can trick 6412 to transfer premium hd into pc and i love doing that.
Three, i can capture the image file from playback those hd movie and it's worth dying for. The 'beauty of snake' is now at my desktop wallpaper over the new dell 20" 2005 WD monitor. it;s definately wow effect all over again. it's stunning!!
if you get want to do analog recording, does the capture card not working for you? instead of going through all the trouble
