I have a Pentium 3 with 650 MHz, 640 MB RAM, enough disk space ... And I would now like to VHS, VHS-C and SVHS-C-dub recordings on my PC, then burn to DVD and archive. On the Internet I met with my deems appropriate interface between my PC and the VCR as the "Typhoon DVD Maker USB 2.0. The technical data sheet but calls for at least a Pentium 4 with 1 GHz! Does this mean that the capture card does not work with my calculator, or is it all just a little slower and thus not so confortable? Is there vernünfite and cheaper alternatives for me? I have encountered in my search still on the "Leadtec WinFast VC100 XP" video input adapter. It comes with significantly less system resources, however, stands as Resolutionnur 640 * 480. That seems too low, as is written elsewhere of at PAL 720 * 576th I ask for untersÃ, since I've stuck with my research. Thank you!
Antwort von Markus:
the digitization of analog video recordings requires a certain power of your computer. Example, there is not synonymous with a 386 ultimate trick, how to videos with 720 × 576 pixels and 25 fps (PAL) capture. ;-)
I always say, trust no A / D converter that is connected via USB (See why? FireWire FAQ">1. (b) Firewire or USB?). You would your already underperforming Calculator burden even more, since the USB-demand data processor, Firewire data (the "store only" not on hard drive), however.
I imagine that an A / D converter that is connected via Firewire with your Calculator, could be sufficient for your project and that there is no dropped frames is because of capacity constraints.
