Hey folks,


Putting together the new machine...looking for the last few bits and peices.


In my current machine (being replaced) I use an older hauppage wintv card that was given to me for free. The quality that it displays is "not so hot". This is probably mainly due to the very low quality cable setup here in San Jose. Those who live in my house have all decided to migrate to satellite because of it, and I'm all for it! I've looked into it and the sat. receiver I'd be getting has an S video output. This wintv card does not have an Svid input.


I'm wondering what is the best way to input svideo to an HTPC (preferably for under 100 bucks, but that is of course flexible). I would also like to have an analog video input, and if its not too much more dinero the UHF input is nice too (for until the dish upgrade happens).


I noticed an AVER card real cheap on newegg.com

Get what you pay for?


TIA,

Rosco

A friend of mine has the AVER TV card and he says it is alright. I have not

seen its captures at all so I cannot compare it to my card. I have a Video

Blaster Digital VCR (creative labs) and I am pleased with it.



There are atleast two versions of the AVER TV card, a normal and a deluxe.

The deluxe has FM tuner, it is stereo and has a IR remote.

Thanks for the reply.


I like that all these brooktree cards work well with dScaler, which is GREAT software. Even makes images on my large CRT look better. Are they all limited to 320? or can some handle 640 or even higher?
