  1. Can anyone recommend a good analgue video capture card/box that is compatible with the 64-bit version of Vista? I have a Dazzel DVC-130 that was great for 32-bit, but no drivers are available for the 64-bit version which we've now migrated to.

    Prefer a USB2 or Firewire box over a PCI card, but do have a PCI slot free if necessary.

    Will be used for converting old sVHS (ie S-Video input required for best quality) and archiving to DVD (editing in Premiere CS3 first).

  2. Depending on your budget, a dedicated analog-DV converter box will work (~$140).

    Yes, at least 64bit works with DV import. Some choices

    - DV camcorder with "analog pass through". It will need black correction (32 to 16) after capture.

    - Canopus ADVC DV transcoders (has 0.0/7.5 IRE switch for proper black capture).

    - ADS Pyro DV transcoders (fixed to 7.5 IRE capture).

  4. I was thinking along similar lines. Was going to go for the Canopus ADVC 300 as I think the TBC will be useful for some of the older tapes.

    Any reasons not to go for this?
