Im new at this and have read a lot of threads on this but am still unsure how to proceed. I want to convert VHS home and Disney movies to my PC then burn DVD. Here's some info:
Computer: HP Pavillion desktop m9040n with Windows Vista Home Premium
Processor: Intel 2Quad core 2.4GHZ
Hard drives: 2 300GB drives
DVD Lightscribe burner
Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1800 tuner card
Memorex vcr, new
If I play the tapes on the vcr thru the Grex then into the Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1800 tuner card, what type of program do I need to capture the video and store to Hard drive and burn to DVD? Will something like Sony Vegas Movie Studio 9 Platinum do the job or what other programs are suggested.
Also, do I need an external capture device or is the Hauppage tuner card the same thing. Thanks in advance for any help.

By the way, weekends are down times for the forum with fewer posts and many experienced members taking the weekend off, hence why your original post didn't attract much attention. But you did well to bump it 1 day later. That's perfectly fine.
Does the WinTV-HVR-1800 tuner card recognize MV or CGMS? I know the older Hauppauge (PVR-150) in this machine does not.;/ l ,[____], Its a Jeep thing,

Beyond the Macrovision issue I was wondering if the Hauppauge card I listed is all I need to capture the analogue recording into my computer and what program/software is recommend to work best with this to do some basic editing and burn dvd's.
