I think there are lots of these on eBay under different brands. I tried a
few of these a while ago to capture VHS tapes to digital. I had a helluva
job getting any of them to work properly. From memory audio wouldn't work.
They were all pretty awful. The device that worked for me in the end was a
Hauppauge USB-Live 2.
