Noob here and I am scratching my head at all the different kinds of hardware setups to capture an analog VHS signal.
My problem started when I tried to capture some tape from my dad's old sony ccd-tr72 sony handycam. I thought my extremecap u3 would possibly work but I don't know if Avermedia provides a s-video/composite dongle. I know it has a component dongle, but that's useless for this camera. Does anyone know if there is such a thing?
Should I just opt for a USB type dongle to capture the feed? That seems easier, but I have no idea where to start. I would like to capture as much quality as possible without resorting to PCI cards because I don't have a desktop PC, just a laptop. Thanks for any help, you guys.

There have also been some favorable comments regarding the I-O DATA GV-USB2. The documentation and user interface for the included software are in Japanese, but it is possible to use other software like AmarecTV.Ignore list: hello_hello, tried, TechLord
Thank you so much for looking into that composite cable and your help. I also looked around and could find it, oh well, I thought I'd at least see if I could use it. I ended up borrowing my friend's black magic Intensity Shuttle USB and it captures the feed very nicely in Virtualdub. Thanks for suggesting the GV-USB2, it looks like a pretty solid device!
