This is still the best site for this topic. But having not visited for some time I noticed all info for capture cards has disappeared, anyone why as I used to use that section for all the latest info? Or have I missed something?

For standard definition capture there's nothing new in the last 10 years except for a flood of cheap, low quality, capture devices.
Other than the old ATI AGP All In Wonders -- if you can find one that still works with all its parts and a motherboard to match(!) -- the "new" device I see most often recommended is the ATI 600 USB or the ATI HD 600. Some PCI versions are still around. Also marketed as the Diamond TVWonder 600 and Diamond TVWonder HD 600. Ignore the "HD" -- they're both the same thing. Can capture to lossless with VirtualDub or record to MPEG. The other new ones aren't optimal for VHS, AFAIK from what some old pros say.
ATI's later 650, 700 devices, etc., have serious AGC problems.- My sister Ann's brother
There are a fair number of recent HD capture devices available now, in addition to the SD ones. Maintaining an up-to-date list would indeed require some work.
LMotlow: thanks for the advice. I actually do have ATI AIW 32Meg into an AMD Barton board which works fine 10 years on. Although dont use much as have finished all VHS tape captures years ago. I simply wondered what had happened to capture card list.
I thought the list update would be too much, thanks to all!
