    looking for analogue video capture card (SCART/SVHS)

    i'm looking to rip a few old videotapes that have non commercial stuff on them (otherwise i'd buy the dvd), and i've a half dozen things on laserdisc that's never came out on dvd or better format either. i have a standalone video recorder that i've used in the past but it's not the best quality so i was looking to upgrade. an option is to buy a better second hand dvd recorder but i would have thought a capture card may be a better option and let rip to say 720p and get a higher bitrate and better quality. budget around £50 mark but if a fantastic device is available sub £100 i'd maybe go for that. i presume there are great professional devices but would probably cost a fortune, but if you can get them second hand on ebay for cheap then i'm interested. i do have a cheap usb one but couldn't get it to work (cheap chinese ebay crap). i don't want to spend hours on software cleaning up, just a straight rip, crop start and end and that's it

    thanks

    Well RGB Scart would produce the best quality, but I guess you might even be looking at SVideo?

    Really you need to work out what common high quality output they both have.

    the players have scart and svideo, but it's the connections on the capture card that count and most capture cards seem to have svideo or composite video, not scart from what i've seen
