I've been planning to buy a video capture device at some point. I spotted this in Best Buy the other day: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=5870729&type=product&id=1064607747431 It has output and input for composite and S-video (unfortunately, most of the stuff in my house is composite, as only one TV actually has S-video, I think it does anyway, and nothing uses it). I remember people recommending the old Dazzle Hollywood DV Bridge to me, but that is no longer sold. Both my 1 GHz G4 PowerBook and my main Windows PC (2.5 GHz Pentium 4) have USB 2.0 and firewire. Sadly, no firewire on the device. There is no mention of whether it is Mac compatible. Anyone have experience? I will be using it mostly with my PC for now though I will probably transfer it to my Mac for burning (iDVD rules), and when I switch my desktop to a Mac (most likely when the Intel macs come out next year), I'll be using it on a Mac full time. Oh, and what the heck is up with this? MPEG-2 can't possibly be that bad- how did Apple squeeze a 2 hour movie on a 4.7 GB DVD disk in iDVD? Oh, and before anyone starts telling me to stay away from Best Buy, my sister works there, therefore, employee discount $102 instead of $129.
