    Hey all MacRumor-ers
    I am looking into purchasing a Capture card for mac. And I'm not sure how to begin. Any suggestions on what kind of capture card and what applications i can use it on? (iMovie perhaps?)

    I am looking to record old VHS to my computer. I have some old homemade movies. I also would be nice to know how to setup a game console to record.

    Thanks again

    You have a mac pro or powermac with card slots?

    Or do you need a USB or firewire device?

    Not sure what your trying to capture as many here have given good products to use, one that I use personally is the ADVC-300 that connents via firewire 400 but the inputs to it from other devices are componet or S/Video it's not a cheap item but works very well. You can check out Canopus

    Oh didn't see you want to capture game play as well, then with your options I would use the Hauppage HD PVR 1212 Since it will let you record in HD as well.

    a DV cam with video input should also work as a DV bridge, converting the video in to DV.
