Doing some cleanup and discovered this item lying around not being used.

I used it to record Vodafone cable from the T-Box using the s-video input and it worked fine. I used this instead of the builtin recorder since it meant the programmes could be put on the network and watched anywhere rather than be locked into using the T-Box.

 

Have since ditched Vodafone cable so it's surplus to requirements now.

 

Can also be used to capture videotapes (if you have any of those left) using either composite video, s-video or component video.

 

$25 plus shipping (if required - pick up in Welly)
