Periodically, I see people come on this forum and ask about external capture devices for PowerPC Macs. I ended up needing one of these devices as I am going to be doing VHS to DVD home movie transfers for a client. After searching eBay, Amazon, and Google, I came across an adapter that works well and supports both PowerPC and Intel Macs. I ordered this adapter. When you unbox the device you will find the adapter, a book, and a disk with an outdated copy of the software. It is best to go to Diamond's website and download the latest version of the software. Do not throw away the box with the book and the disk as it includes the serial for the capture software. I hooked up a VCR with the composite video cables I had and played a tape back into the software. Recording works fine over USB 2.0 on my PowerMac and the quality is good! The adapter supports recording in VGA resolution (640x480) at 30 FPS for NTSC and 720x576 at 25 FPS for PAL. This particular adapter also works with S-Video if you decided to hook up with that. I am very happy with this adapter and it works fine for VHS --> DVD transfers as well as game capture from consoles. Just thought I would share my thoughts since this is a great adapter.
