Good news I got my new capture card today and installed it.
I have had to give up on ice and fire at the moment because of the poor
condition of the VHS tape but I am hopeful that a rather better vcr than
mine might be able to get a reasonable copy of it, I'll see if I can borrow
As an experiment I have copied a series 7 episode entitled "Dirty Cargo"
partly because the tape was in reasonable condition and because it is a good
story all contained in one episode.
Using the best bit rate my old pc can manage this has resulted in a 480 Mb
file which will easily fit on a CD-r and will play with the Windows Media
player. It while not anywhere near DVD (or even good VHS) quality it is good
and not too bad to watch even on full screen on my 17" monitor.
So who wants a copy? I'll start the ball rolling with 2 on the understanding
recipients will copy it and send on to other members of the list.
Bill (who has now found that to work the capture card and software with all
their features now needs a major pc upgrade!)
