VHS Video input?

Threaded View
I have a NIDIVA (GeForce 6600GT) video card, USB ports, 3500+ AMD,
Windows XP home.  Unfortunately, my video card does not have video
input.  I'm wondering what kinds of devices I could add on (rather
than replace my video card) , preferably under $150.   I'd like to
convert all my VHS tapes to DVDs.  An added bonus would to have
TIVO-like capabilities where I could record TV programs, and
eventually retire my VHS tape deck.  Might external devices be better
than internal cards  since tuners can produce lots of heat?    Any
suggestions, brands, models?   TIA

Get a interal pci tuner/capture card, not an external device. Any one
that has 10 bit decoder or better will work and will not produce lots of
heat. Most come with software for programed recording and a remote
control. I have a cheap Kworld VS-LTV883RF that works fine. Newegg is a
good source.
