<sigh> There is no "recommended" card, because there is no single authority
here to serve as a source of recommendations.
What there are is a variety of cards that work with Myth, and that have
various relative strengths and weaknesses ... involving tradeoffs among
image quality, cost, CPU load, file size (MB/minute), and other things.
The list archive has a lot of disccussion about the relative strengths and
weaknesses of various cards. There is no shortcut around reading through
that material and, based on it, forming your own opinions.
Any substantive responses you get to this inquiry will be less
recommendations and more reatatements of individuals' personal point of
view on how to balance out the very real tradeoffs one has to make with ANY
real-time digitizing of video.
