    Default Capture VHS to DVD

    Greetings,

    Ive got a VHS Cassette here (Parents wedding anniversary) and Im wanting to save the moment onto DVD, mainly because we've only borrowed a Video Player from a friend and are wanting to get as many things on to DVD as possible.
    We dont record TV Shows, so that's no problem.

    Basically Im after a way of capturing the Video (Bought the Philips saa7134 chipset card from DSE) and then re-encoding it so it'll play as a normal DVD would (Menus arent neccesary).

    Ive had a Google for a bit of software and some looks good, but I'd rather get recommendations before I spend time downloading and filling my PC with crap software ;-)

    OS = Win98SE, WinXP, and Xandros (Xandros for re-encoding only because Ive not setup the kernel modules for the Tuner Card).

    Many thanks


    Chill.

    I assume you don't want to spend too much. If you're not afraid of spending money, the Plextor ConvertX I looked at for June PCW is really good. Costs $445 though, so you wouldn't want it for just one job ....

    All hardware, alas, goes back to the vendor. Software we keep.

    .... it's actually published in the mag under "Reviews Policy" (in the side bar with contacts and what not, in the Mailbox section).

    Oh......I had a vision of the PCWorld staff sitting atop a huge pile of gear acumulated over the last 20 years.......Piles of laptops,Top of the line gaming rigs and office systems,scanners,printers...

    Robo's pile would have to be a fair bit smaller,Would take thousands of PDA's and mobile phones to make a pile big enough to sit on......

    Unfortunately, Im not in a position to make large software purchases,
    I probably should have mentioned that in my first post...

    Preferrably something very low-cost, or Open-Source would be good :-)


    Chill.
