    I have a HCPC hooked up to a pj and was wondering how I can hook up my Panny E30 DVD recorder to the pj. I have an S-Video block setup on the pj but it would need a long cable to reach which is not ideal with S-Video of course. I was wondering if I could get a TV card which has an S-Video connection and use that through the PC. What would that mean to the picture quality of the E30, better or worse than using it with a long run of S-Video cable?

    A PC world PB TV100 would be a great choice at around £40, use it with DScaler 4.17.

    I bought this card today, it's own software works fine with composite video but when I try it on Dscaler the picture is b&w with red and blue stripes (vertical). I was using the Panny E30 DVD Rec and the comp cable went from the Comp out to the Comp in on the TV card.

    What am I missing cos I've looked at the Dscaler FAQ and the macrovision picture has horizontal stripes, plus the disc in question was a DVD RAM with recorded music videos from Sky :confused:
