Re: How to get a VHS tape as a file on my computer?
Your card should have come with a CD.
Install WinTV2000 - this is your capture program.
Follow the setup directions.
Use the record button on screen or on the remote and it will save the video to your HD in MPEG format.
To burn an MPEG to DVD you will need to install Movie Factory.
This is from the manual for your card:
Record your TV programs or home videos onto DVD or CD, and play them on your DVD player! If you have a DVD burner in your PC, use the WinTV-PVR’s MPEG files with the included Ulead DVD MovieFactory™ to author your own home DVD’s. Turn your TV shows or home videos into DVD movies!
