I've been reading a lot about people that want to capture analog VHS through their Mac, but I'm thinking about using my iMac G5 as the actual monitor for a dvd/vcr combo...can I do this without a converter if I find a player that has firewire? Will that automatically converter analog to digital? Or will I have to go with some kind of converter for the S-cable? Also, any recommendations on good dvd/vcr combos? Plus, is it bad to watch a bunch of full-length movies with the dvd player in your computer? I always feel like it makes a lot of noise and then the dvds are hot when they eject -- that's part of the reason I'd like to connect a combo (plus I have vhs I'd like to watch too, as well as digitize some old footage). Thanks in advance for any help!
