  1. I have been getting pretty good results using my PV256 mpeg card and capturing @ 4500 bitrate vbr. It's as good as the original and I can get all 2 hrs of an old vhs movie tape on one 4.7 gig dvd-r. I usually do some editing with mpeg2vcr and use Ulead movie factory to author menus if I want to and burn it on my Pioneer 104 with movie factory. It's quicker than the old method I used of software rendering and the like and I am getting results that I can live with.

    I have a Canopus ADVC-100 which is similar to the 50, and it is my understanding that these cannot capture to mpeg2 directly. It captures to a DV format AVI file. If you want it in mpeg2, you have to use something like TMPGenc.

    If this is incorrect, I'd like to know it.

    The quality of these converters is superb!

    I run an S-video line into my ATI8500 and now with their 7.7 drivers, the VideoCD format capture option works great for perfect MPEG1. Without the Canopus doing it's magic, I always had AV sync drift and the video had blockiness. Also I would get "ATIMMC has caused errors and will be terminated" without the Canopus massaging the stream.

    "Yes VCD is VHS-TV quality.
    Both me and especialy a friend of me have ended-up with some VERY good 1150 VCD films, Those who claims it is not,

    Wake up and change hobbies."

    If thats what you believe, time to get a new monitor (or glasses)!!! Oh, and an English tutor.
