1 Is a video capture card better than any ‘other hardware’?
2 If ‘other hardware’ is better, then what would this be ?
3 How to retain the best possible quality Sound and Visual off the tapes ?
4 My VHS player does not have S-Video ports. Is it better to have one that does ? If so, I'll borrow one.
5 capture to external or local ?
6 SSD or SATA ?
I want to be free to edit the video myself (and I have lots), so I don’t want to outsource and I don’t want to copy to DVD. I found a 2012 thread on this topic that isn’t that enlightening and besides, we are talking two years of technology change here…so, advice would be really welcomed.
