My System Specs


What output does your camcorder use?

I have this card and have been very happy with it: - Buy Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1600 PCI TV Tuner Hardware MPEG NTSC ATSC QAM Retail Box W/ Remote & IR Receiver - 1181 In Canada. Its a PCI card; if you want a PCI-E version of that card, then this one: - Buy Hauppauge WINTV-HVR-1800 PCI-E1 TV Tuner NTSC ATSC QAM for Windows Vista Whitebox OEM - 1129 In Canada.

I don't use the digital tuners on those cards though, so I can't speak as to the usefulness of that. These cards have hardware decoding which is nice, and I have found support for XP and Vista to work well. Also works well with various media applications (ie SageTV).

The cards above have the regular NTSC and S-Video inputs. If your camcorder uses Firewire then I would look elsewhere.
