|I had a Hauppage device a while back - try going to their web site and downloading the latest drivers.|
I also seem to rememberhaing to install the software before the device, but it was USB, so may not apply in your case.
The capture seemed to work OK, though it was of poor resolution as it was only USB 1.1.I now have a Winfast card, which works well but produces MPEG2 files that, for some reason, lose audio sync when compiled for DVD. Consequently I re-encode all the capture files using TMPGenc, which solves this problem and also provides a simple method of cutting and splicing files; also adding a music track if there is no audio on the tape.
If there is udio on the tape and you want to blend in music, you will need something fancier. I would use TMPG to split off the audio, then something like Goldwave to merge in a music track, after which TMPG can re-combine with video.
BTW, Bryco's figure of 1Gb for ten minutes video is very high, especially in AVI! Makes me wonder if there is a setting wrong somewhere.
