I have a Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 card and was hoping to use it to transfer my home videos from VHS to digital. The card has two coax input connections so I figured I could just use one of them to connect directly to the VHS player.
Problem is, now that I've done that, I don't know how to actually capture the video as I play it on the VHS player. When I transfer video from my camcorder I use a firewire connection and Pinnacle Studio (v14). I can't see how I can do that with the card though. Hopefully someone here has an idea.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Using WinTV 7 for VHS capture is the easiest solution. The Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 can only do hardware-based MPEG-2 encoding, and because it doesn't support software encoding, it does not work with most third-party capture programs. If you bought the standard version of the card, not the White Box version, it comes with WinTV 7. Otherwise, you can buy WinTV 7 from Hauppauge's web store.
Thank you. I'll give that a try
