    Any mac compatible tv card should do the job absolutely fine. Just make sure its not USB1.1 because USB1.1 TV cards have to use a horrible compression to get the signal to the PC. USB2 ones are fine though.

    I use the built-in A-->D converter on my Canon ZR90 miniDV camera. Works great.

    I currently have no idea what to get. I'm hoping for a firewire interface rather than USB2. Currently the only one I've seen is the eyeTV from elgato which is quite expensive.

    Echoing an earlier post, I digitize from VHS onto miniDV using the S-video inputs on my camcorder. Then, I capture from the miniDV to my Mac. Even though this is a two step process, it has the advantage of producing a nice digital backup of my analog source.
