I kind of searched around on here and found a lot of older posts that really weren't helping me much, so I thought I'd ask a new one. I'm looking to buy a TV tuner for my MacBook. I was looking at the Elgato, but couldn't decide which one I need. I'm mostly going to use it to convert VHS tapes to DVDs, and try to get some DVRed stuff onto DVDs too. I have a 2.0 CD MacBook with 2GB of RAM. I guess I can use it to plug into my cable line, since I don't have a TV in my bedroom, but the speakers on the MacBook aren't all that great, and I might not be able to hear it too well. There are 3 choices on their page, the eyetv 250 plus (I was thinking that would be best, since it does the encoding), the eyetv hybrid (cheaper), and the elgato turbo .264. I think that just converts the files, so it really isn't needed.
