It has been a loooong time since i did it....want the best quality with least bit of loss possible.

    I know how to hook it up and all, but the steps from their using Edius...i have never captured vhs with Edius before.

    And what settings...I remember in the old dv storm software something about changing the something about the buffer....so if you can help with the settings using edius would be grateful..thanks..t

    Ting you're just making it complex heh,

    Yes, the Storm has SVIDEO in/out.

    SVIDEO/SVHS are just terms, no need to get all technical about it. :)

    Are you sure Storm has a SVHS input? Never heard of that before. Perhaps you have mistaken - SVHS stands for Super VHS - that the tape format ... or the player that plays SVHS tapes. It outputs to SVIDEO ... and STORM has the SVIDEO input and ouput ports.

    So - if you use a DVStorm card, you cannot use HQ ... but, you need to use DV codec. Only on the NX card - you can capture DV as HQ.

    Reread my post above, DVStorm is only a DV board (hence the name)...so through the SVideo port you will only be able to capture to DV codec.

    It's better, but as Tingsern mentioned minimum is SVIDEO if you want quality. NX supports HQ capture via SVIDEO, but not the DVStorm.

    DV codec is 4:2:0 ... As opposed to HQ at 4:2:2.
    PAL land is 4:2:0, NTSC DV is 4:1:1 :)
    They're very similar though.

    No I don't. I will output the SVHS from the player to the SVHS input in my Storm card.

    Okay - I agree ... provided he has a SVHS player going out by SVIDEO minimum. Component will be best - but NX does not have component input - you might need ADVC300 for that.

    By capturing "direct" - I take it to mean to use NX firewire and/or SVIDEO port ... if that is correct, then YES - it is the best method.
