TV Tuner to move Hi8 Tapes to Digital Tags: Components Last response: July 7, 2012 9:05 PM in Components Share Salt-City_Slasher July 6, 2012 5:26:07 AM I have pulled a Hauppauge WinTV HVR 1800 out of an old HP Desktop. I have everything but the installation disk, but I was able to get the drivers online. They want me to pay 10$ for the missing disk, that is suppose to have the WinTV application. I was wondering if I will be able to use this card without the disk. All I want to do is, plug in a Hi8 camera through the RCA, and record the footage on my computer. I just can't find any info on it anywhere. I am going to look for the disc tomorrow, hopefully it will be what I need. If anyone has done this before let me know what I need to do.

What kind of software will I need to record the video onto my computer? I thought Camtasia might work, but I would need something to play the videos. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
