I have a couple of them and both work well...and are older cards. The ATI AIW 9700 Pro is great and reasonably priced now that the newer cards are out. I also have a card that came with my Pinnacle AV/DV suite which includes the Studio 9 software. I also have Creative Labs Model CT6860 with TV out. And a GeForce card (drivers by Nvidia) that's an older card that works well.

I would suggest that some of these older cards are probably still available and work equally well...just make sure you get the software to go with them in order to capture. The ATI card and the Pinnacle one includes the software with the cards with free downloads/updates available from their sites.

make sure also that you get a card that can capture video IN and not just video OUT or you will only be able to use it to direct a movie from your PC to the tv rather than from your TV, VCR, or digital camera to the pc for burning later. The Creative Labs card I mentioned ONLY has TV OUT and can't capture IN.

recco the ATI AIW 9500 as the best buy for the money. Virtually never tout the 9700 or 9800. That is unless you want to get support for HDTV resolutions at no extra cost.

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?
