Can Someone Recommend A Good PCI or External Capture Card?

I'd like to be able to capture from various devices (VCR, DV, Camcorder) and was wondering what's a good one in the $80 to $200 range, that works well with EMC 9, according to my specs below.

 

Thanks!

 

Here is a partial list of supported devices.

 

I use a Pinnacle A/V capture card.

If you have an analog camcorder, you will need a card. I first tried an ATI TV wonder. Could not make it work, could not get any help from ATI, wasted many $$$ in Long Distance calls to ATI support in CAnada. I returned the ATI card and bought a Hauppauge WinTV-PVR 150 PCI card, [$99.00} includes easy to use software, TV tuner to watch TV on the PC. Installed very easily, works great, no trouble with it over last 2+ years. EMC9 recognizes it and works with it. Phone support in Hauppauge, N.J, but have not needed it. Not sure what current model is, but check out http://www.hauppauge.com/

If he has an analog camcorder and a newer digital camcorder with the pass through capability, he won't need a capture card, if the newer digital camcorder can connect to the computer via firewire.

 

The reason that I have to use my Hauppauge card is, I don't have a newer digital camcorder to go along with my ancient analog camcorder. I do like the Hauppauge card, though. :)

I need a capture card to do any capture work from my ancient VHS camcorder. When needed, I use the Hauppauge card listed in my signature.
