Elgato today announced the release of Video Capture. According to the company, Video Capture is a complete and easy-to-use solution for transferring analog video to a Mac, iPhone or iPod. It allows users to connect VCRs, set top boxes, camcorders, DVD players, and other analog video sources to their Mac via USB 2.0. The software included with the device then records the video in either H.264 or MPEG-4 formats.

It doesn't really seem like they needed a product like this. The software might be different, but you can basically do the same thing with one of their tuners and the breakout cable. Am I missing something else here? Confused

The EyeTV Hybird costs $150 and the video capture is $99 I think it would be a great idea - you don't need a tuner and connect to VCR/DVD player via s-video plus audio. Also you can connect it direct to your cableTV box via s-video/audio. That would be fine for non-HD stuff.

You can actually get the older EyeTV Hybrid for around the same price, but I guess that's a good enough reason. You know, the best time to stuff from Elgato seems to be around Macworld and WWDC. My roommate got a crazy deal on the 250 Plus like two years ago during Macworld. I could be wrong, but I think he paid around $125.
