    Hi. I'm researching into setting up a home security system consisting of several cameras recording directly to a Mac.

    What I need is a PCI Video input card. Any recomendations for a setup compatable with a G5 PowerMac, and can accept video input from 8 cameras?

    What? No one here knows anything about PCI Video Capture cards?

    I mean, the best I've come up with is this

    But one of them costs 900 dollars, two would be 1800. Anything know of a cheaper alternative?

    Out of curiosity, I did a search.
    I found quite a few, but none seemed to work in OS X. The ones that did, are insanely expensive ($2800+ USD):eek:, so I didn't post.
