    I have the ATI TV wonder. I also have another brand. Both work excellent in most cases.

    Here's the problem. With either card, I can capture anything up to 320X240 MPEG2 DVD quality, however, DVD quality is actually 720X480 (NTSC).

    When recording 720X480, the video becomes choppy. I reduce the rate down to 4000kps, and it become less choppy, but the compression quality is very noticeable. A little too noticeable and crappy. Choppy Vs. Crappy. I have created DVD videos with 8000kps and it worked perfect, but not from video with my capture card.

    My computer system is a Pentium4 2.8gHz with XP Corp. I don't have any unnecessary software or drivers running when I use the capture card. I have 512MB DDR RAM too. You'd think that I could capture at 720x240. I even tried capturing with a fresh NEW install of XP. Nothing works.

    I swear, People make a tons of high quality videos of TV shows for download. They must be using MACs or something, because I have talked to a few other people in the same boat as me, using a PC system.

    Is there a quality capture card that can do what I want to do. Make smooth DVD videos with all of the standard DVD settings for NTSC?

    From what i've found among my friends they encountered the same cases as yours. Even at my lab where i worked before they used Macintosh computers to transfer the videos to the computer (transfer/extract whatsoever). then transfer it to pc using ms windows for editing. lol what a job needs to do.
