It comes with TWO programs for recording. On is for recording everything onto your computer in various file formats, such as: AVI, MP3, MP4 and several more. The other program lets you record and build a menu for a DVD. You can choose a background picture for the DVD menu as well as drag different clips around to make a "Scene Select" or anything else you want. Very useful if you plan on transferring your VCR tapes to DVD.
The quality is much better than I expected and there isn't much difference between this and the 15 inch standard definition TV I play on. There is a extremely small blur if you go fullscreen, but even then it's barely noticeable.
To get the best picture quality I would suggest putting the file format to something like AVI. It may take up more space but you get a cleaner video.
I have tried some other capture devices, and without going to the Super HD capture devices and their ridicules prices (maybe in the future), this is the best capture device your can get. Great for machinimas, gaming montages, showcasing, VCR to DVD transfer and more. I would buy one if I didn't already.
Your VHS deck needs either the red-white-yellow outputs or S-Video out on the back to plug in the cable. Then just plug in the USB cable into your computer.
You only need the honestech (HOnest Technology) software even though it comes with a video grabber program also. Start the honestech, start playing the VHS, and on the Capture menu, click the Record button. In options you can select normal, good, & best for capture quality. It will start to convert the tape into an mp3 file at real-time speed, so you either watch it or set the timer to shut off if you know the length of the recording, and do something else.
Once it's finished, you can go into EDIT and add chapters or remove clips. You then go to RECORD where you can edit your opening menu page and start your recording. The actual burning is faster than the vhs to mp3 conversion. You probably could just keep it in mp3 format and play with it in another video editor.
It's easy and I can now play the old tapes on a DVD machine. That's all I wanted and that's what I got with this package. It will also convert to other video formats but I haven't tried those.
Out of the box, I could have been that guy - the guy who frowns and 1 stars a product - but it didnt happen. I saw this first advertised on youtube and gave it a chance. The reviewer on youtube pointed out that the software out of the box is pretty lame and is pretty old (I mean it says to use w Vista and XP) and to just do a google search to find the companies website and download the newest software and drivers. I went from :/ to :D
Downloanding the new software and drivers: If you went through the boot disk, youre going to have to uninstall that software. First, plug the unit into your pc. Second, download the driver. Third, download that new software - HINT: It should be ONE TOUCH GRABBER not EZ GRABBER!!! Finally restart your pc.
As for a super computer, Im using my girlfriends laptop and its no where near super. It has an Intel dual core 2.0 with 3 gigs of RAM I think w a 400 GB HDD so its totally not super.
Uses: I use this thing to upload video from the handycam to regular video formats - lost the installation software and apparently toshiba is too cool to keep drivers around - but mainly to play video games on my PC - Yeah! Change your drawers. Video games on my PC. Not only can u plug your NES into this bad boy but then you can take video footage and screen shots, put some B/A music in the backround and show your friends how dzl u r at video games. I even saw ppl hook theire xbox's up to it.
Overall This is a 5 star device and be wary that this says for XP and VISTA - but also go to the manufactures website and check out the drivers and updates. I think theres even on for Mac OS.
