    I'm fed up with analogue capture and software conversion to MPEG (takes too much time)...
    and am looking at Hardware solutions (Dazzle, Vidac...)

    Intention is to feed Sky+ by s-video and save directly as MPEG, so I can get it onto silvery disks more quickly - BUT also want to use optical digital out from Sky+ and capture audio digitally... the intention, to use the optical input on my sound card.

    BUT - Vidac just confirmed that their Vmagic card doesn't support audio input through a separate sound card... you have to use the analogue audio inpus on the card.
    Bummer.
    (This may be partly remedied later if Nebula gets their dig-sat card off the ground).

    Does anyone know of other MPEG hardware capture devices (PCI or USB) which DO either:
    - allow use of separate sound card and digital audio input, or
    - have their own digital auido input ?

    and if they exist
    - do they suffer from synchronisation delays between audio & video ? (& can it be corrected with a timing delay)

    (am expecting same answer from Dazzle re: their Hollywood bridge USB 2.0)

    thanks
    Steve

    vcdhelp.com is worth a look too - not sure if there's anything about hardware there though - haven't looked at it for ages.

    just for reference, dvdrhelp is the new name for vcdhelp.

    They have reviews of hardware and several forums (check down towards the bottom of the menu on the left)
