analog video to Hi8 tape.

If your Apple Macintosh has a firewire port, then I like the ADVC55 or ADVC110 from Thomson/Grass Valley/Canopus.
Same if your Macintosh has a Thunderbolt port - you need the above + a $30 cable tail/adapter from Apple

If your Mac has no firewire port and no Thunderbolt port - so all there is may be a USB port, then Elgato

I was well aware of that. But I was hoping somebody would be able to recommend a such device.

I see recommendations over and over. Mine is to use a DVD recorder and not do the capture on any PC/Apple.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
