I was wondering what capture card would be my best bet for taking an S-video source (output from my D* sat receiver) and scaling it up to a higher res (i.e. 1080i). Right now I have a Samsung HD D* receiver, but was thinking an HTPC could provide better upscaling using teh 480i output of the Samsung and turning it into 1080i to my Mits 65" TV.


I assume the Holo3D card would be the best, but didnt want to spend 800 bux on it. Would the more inexpensive cards (Xcapture, WinTV, etc) be a good choice? I plan on teaming it up with a Radeon 7500.


Thanks!!!!

Actually thats what prompted me to ask.............some people live and die by the Holo3D, others by the WinTV cards, and it seems like the rest just pick something.


Just wanted some guidance. I'll probably end up with the Xcapture card, provided it works well with dScaler.
