Overview

Use your computer as a TV or capture video from any video source (VCR, DVD player, Camcorder, etc.).

TV Capture

So you just got a new flat-panel monitor and the picture looks nothing short of awesome. The TV tuner card lets you take TV-in signals to display them on your monitor.

Video Capture

The card features built-in MPEG 1/2/4 encoding, meaning you can capture those live TV signals and store your favorite shows on your hard drive.

You can also transfer and digitize videos from other sources, such as old VHS tapes via your VCR or your old home movies via your camcorder. Preserve your memories and favorite movies by digitizing them. Also easily edit and distribute them with your favorite video editing software.

The TV Tuner/Capture card also includes a remote control to facilitate the use of your capture card.

Pros: Card is easy to install. Comes with IR extender so you can actually make the remote work. Works, though.

Cons: Software is glitchy and occasionally reset my computer. Remote feels cheap.

Other: This is a pretty decent bit of hardware. The included software is so-so, though, so I recommend finding a 3rd party solution. Overall, I was pleased, though.

Pros: This was such a great find! My daughter's TV went out and I wasn't willing to shell out $250 for a new one. This card was a great substitute. Now she can watch on her monitor and record shows for later!

Cons: The first few days several of the stations would not come in clearly. Changing monitors didn't clear it up. After a while, the problem resolved itself. Could have been our cable TV input or the card needed to be seated in the computer for a bit.

Other: Great substitute for buying a new digital TV. I would purchase it again!

Question:

Do you offer a capture device for a digital camera ( Kodak still/ video ) that will allow me to see live images on the screen and capture the segments I want? Also I would like to watch and be able to capture live Tv shows. Thank you in advance of your help, John


Answer:

If your camera has an AV output (many do) then you coudl use an adapter like this card. If your camera does not have an AV ouput, you would have to pull picures/video off the storage card, or see if Kodak offers another solution.
