I am running a Mac Mini 2GHz Core2Duo version with Snow Leopard 10.6.2 and I have to convert a bunch of my old home movies currently on VHS tapes. I have tried using an Easycap USB device that I got off eBay but the issue that I am having is that it drops frames on a regular 5 second interval. It runs error free for 5 seconds... drops some frames... runs for 5 seconds... drops some frames... You can almost set your watch by it. Also the audio and video get out of synch. I have tried moving the quality slider bar in the easycapviewer program everywhere from lowest to highest quality and it is the same thing (except for larger MOV files of course). I have 2GB memory and the processor doesn't seem to spike during the lost frame intervals so I don't think it is hardware limited. I think that the driver for the easycap is actually a ported version of the linux version if I understand that correctly. So rather than entrust my home movies to poor capture I am looking for advice on a piece of HW that works well. Recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
