Here's what I need to simply watch TV:
- Composite cable with female adapters to extend the jacks on the back of the TV.
- VCR/DVD Player - I need recommendations (even just your fav brand would be helpful)!
The next step, and part of my 101things is that I want to transfer video from my VCR to my computer. Originally, I was hoping to use my camcorder as the "middleman" here, but it doesn't look like that is a possibility. So, from the looks of it, I need a either a TV Tuner card or something that can do it's job.
I'm mulling over the idea of getting one of these:
But I'm also thinking it might be better to get some serious hardware like these cards:
I'm out of PCI slots, so I'd have to take something out to put this in. Not a huge deal, because the wireless card will probably be the one to go since I've got the ethernet plugged directly into my PC at the moment, but I'm not looking forward to lots of PCI card switching.
Anyway - all recommendations and suggestions are welcome! :-)
