For the cheep setup I will go with a Fire Wire card + DV/AV convertor for the old VHS material ($300)

For middle priced system I i wll try the Dazzle DVC II/DVD Master.

For the high end I will go with a Pinnacle DC1000DV ($1000+)

1. it's a DV card only. You still need a AV/DV convertor to capture from current VHS material.
2. It's not OCHI compliant and uses propiarty drivers. You don't want to go there.

Better use a standard Fire wire card. I know some guys that got a Pinnacle Studio DV. They started using it and when they became more fameliare with video editing moved to a better editing program still using the Card and cables as standard fire wire cards. Very good value for money.

BTW, at my site is a review of the Pinnacle Pro-One Vs. Canopus DV Storm. It's more expencive cards but you might want to take a look at it.

The point here is the VHS that is analoge.

Look for Pinnacle DV500+ they run very cheep now and you can also get a used one for practicly nothing at Ebay.
Normaly they come with Adobe Premier 6, Impression SE and some more neat stuff.
