    Specs.

    Input Signal:

    Composite (RCA)
    Component (YPbPr, 1080i/720p)
    HDMI (1080i/720p)
    Analog Audio L/R
    Support resolution: 480i / 480p / 576i/ 576p/ 720p / 1080i (50/60 Hz)

  2. The C027 is very poor for VHS, and analog video in general. It won't lock onto nonstandard or unstable video, and it oversharpens its SD analog inputs.

    Its component captures don't quite reach the full horizontal resolution. It is good for HDMI captures, but there are cheaper alternatives that offer progressive input modes as well.

    I liked it for its time, but it's an old card at this point.

    HD capture cards that include composite & S-Video do so as an afterthought. You're better off buying a decent HD capture card and a decent SD capture device separately.

    Thanks for the reply, which card you recomend?

    In my country I don't have too much options to select. The EasyCAP is the most popular here lol
    Other options are

    - AverMedia AverTV HD PRO H868 USB
    - Avermedia H751 PCI Ex1
    - Kworld DVD Maker USB 2.0 (VS-USB2800D)

    If none of these is good, what card is good for analog video?

    sorry for my english, I hope you understand.

  4. Don't know anything about those.

    I'm not even sure which TV system Uruguay uses so I probably shouldn't give specific recommendations.
