For some time I've been meaning to transfer some video I have on VHS tapes to digital, maybe do some editing, etc. I've done a little research in the past on video capture devices (external boxes, internal PC cards like ATI all-in-wonder), but I've pretty much been putting the whole thing off. A couple days ago it popped into my head that with my TiVo now being networked I could capture the video by recording the output of my VCR and then transferring to a PC. Has anyone tried doing this? I'm guessing that the image quality won't be nearly as good as the input from my cable box, but will it be any worse than capturing it directly on my PC? How does TiVo's encoder HW compare to that of something like the ATI card or one of those Pinnacle external devices? Another issue seems like it would be that the resulting video would be in MPEG2 format (assuming the conversion that I'm not supposed to mention) rather than in some uncompressed format that might be available through other capture HW. My understanding is that this could be a problem when editing. So maybe the main question is, should I bother going this route?
