    I just use my EyeTV (usb tv tuner). I use the composite / svideo input and just click record. I can then export to mpeg2 / 4 and do what I want with it.

    Same here. It's very easy to make your tapes into dvd's with EyeTV, iMovie, and iDVD.

    Hmmm. I don't own that. If that is the best solution I'll check out the prices online. Thanks!

    I was looking at the EyeTV 250... it runs USB (not FireWire). And the quality is still good? :confused: :eek:

    If you have a DV camcorder with a Firewire connection you can run the video through that as well.
