Err, you mean software dont you ?

If you have a signal being received by your computer via a card, all you require is the software to capture the signal I.E. something like Pinnacle Studio Platinum etc.

The Pinnalce Studio stuff comes with both hardware and software, which is why it is more expensive that some of its competitors. That and its also very good.

Pinnacle Junk ?

Pinncale is not just for the professionals, its is for people who acutally care about what they are doing.

I`m sorry but I am one of the people who beleive you get what you pay for espcially when it comes to computers and computer components.

If you dont care and your not to bother about quality. just use windows movie creater, otherwise, stick with the decent stuff.
