Re: [vox-tech] Looking for recommendation: video capture/TV tuner

There are fairly inexpensive outboard video-to-DV[1] converter boxes.  My
wife uses a Dazzle Hollywood DV-Bridge for this, and we lent it to our
friend Ross Bernheim, who used it extensively with his cheap Athlon
Linux box running kino, to do DVD mastering from his various analogue 
video sources -- and was kind enough to write up his experience:

"Consumer Video to DVD" on http://linuxmafia.com/kb/Apps/AV/

However, as my footnote at the bottom of Ross's HOWTO mentions, a lot of
people feel that Canopus Corporation's equivalent units are a bit better
for about the same price.

[1] "DV" is a conventional abbreviation for digital video.
