Default old machine edius and storm

I have an old edit machine that im going to bring back to life with the old original storm card inserted.
Im going to use this machine hooked up via the front i/o connections on the storm bay to a vcr and an old digital camcorder via the 1394 firewire port as
I have a back log of transfer work to do from clients old vhs and mini dv tapes to convert to dvd.
Just wanted a couple of pointers to the right xp os and drivers for the old storm card to get me up and running again.
Plus there was a workflo to go straight through edius 4.6?? or which version i cant remember that put the capture straight down to dvd with or without ever hitting the timeline but my memory is not sure how to do this
any help appreciated down memory lane
Thanks

there has never been anything that will capture right to DVD except real time DVD recorders which are useless

there was a Canopus mpeg capture utility which was also useless

I'm still using 4.61 and 3.62 on two computers with Windows XP Professional. If you still have your original install discs that came with the Storm Bay there is a program called Mediacruise that captures in MP2. The drivers on the disc is all you need.

MP2 is the format for DVD's, so after capture use the Authoring program of your choice to author that file directly to a disc. For best results keep your burn speed low and bit rates on capture from Mediacruise at a reasonable level, for instance a two hour tape should be captured at a bit rate of 4.0 to 4.5.

I agree woth Anton - I always thought the live MPEG capture quality with Storm was rather ropey.

We have given up trying to make Storms work with modern systems - even using XP. A big issue was the overlay with a modern graphic card, although there was a change to the INI file which made it work on most (and is documented in the readme for the Storm drivers - sorry can't remember more than that).

I would also try and stick to XP service pack 2 if you can. The more updates you pile on (that came out after the Storm was discontinued) the more chance it will not work.

MPEG-on-the-fly suffers from:
Small buffer (little knowledge of past, no knowledge of future)
Extremely limited time to compress per frame/GOP

Always best to do any lossy compression from a source file, so the encoder has full access to all data, past, present and future.
