I searched BT and I've been scouring the googly trying to find the best hardware for doing this but I keep getting jammed up on bad reviews and iffy software. Ideally, I thought I wanted a full-on PCI or PCI-x tuner card thinking it would have more "umph" and deliver better results, but perhaps the composite a/v-to-USB adapters will be fine? Problem is most of the ones I'm looking at on newegg have almost 50/50 split reviews. I don't want something I'm going to have to fight with. So, what do you guys recommend for this task? I'll be converting several households worth of VHSs to DVDs so I'll need something robust enough to make it through many hours of recording. If you have a particular software you recommend besides what comes with the adapter I am all ears for that as well!
