    Elgato TV tuners
    Im looking to transfer some VHS tapes to the iMac. I have been looking at the Elgato products but not sure which one to go with. Once done with the tapes I figured I could use it to watch TV as well. Looking on there site they have the eyetv hybrid, eyetv 250 plus and 'video capture' cables. Seems they would all do the same thing? I read the hybrid uses the computer and the 250 plus is a hardware based. Is this worth the extra cash? Would the 'video capture' cables do the same thing? Seems all 3 will put a picture on the computer....Shouldn't that be enough?

    The Hybrid (and perhaps the 'Video Capture') uses the computer for analog sources. So depending on you computer horse power, you may not be able to use the full quality capability, thereby causing poorer transfers. According to my 2.x software, the requirement is suppose to be an Intel Mac, or a dual G5 or better PPC machine.
