Thanks for your help.

Some years ago I converted some Hi8 video into Mpgs via a cheap and nasty TV card. From these clips I created the DVDs (they were actually SVCDs). As I no longer have said TV card, I ripped the SVCDs to hard disk using DVD:RIP. It is with these files I have created the new project and hence new DVD. The original ripped clips looked OK on my monitor, but once transferred to DVD they looked poor. I now realise the original created Mpgs were of poor quality, and with all the subsequent conversion, they look worse. I have now dug out my old camera and original tapes. As I have no TV card I will need to consider another one. I notice ebay have many USB based input devices. Has anyone tried these? I am reluctant to shell out £100+ for a TV card I will use for about 10 hours of tape.
