Question TV Capture GUI program or mencoder/transcode scripts?


I'd like to capture TV to an .avi file using my Hauppauge PCI WinTV Go! card but am wondering how to easily do this with minimal effort?

Is there a Front-end GUI program for mencoder and/or transcode or scripts for either that are known to work?

I tried a GUI called gv4l but it required xawtv settings and my xawtv install doesn't have sound and I don't want to try and troubleshoot yet another issue at this point. If you know of any good GUI programs OR scripts for mencoder and/or transcode that are proven to capture TV to .avi please post. I watch TV via tvtime with NTSC setting but I haven't found any good means of capture yet.

if you want simple, use a command line, it's SO SO much easier and quicker...

mencoder tv://1 -tv options_here -ovc lavc -oac mp3lame -lavcopts options_here -lameopts options_here -o file.avi

so easy.

Hi acid_kewpie,

Thanks for taking the time to post, I appreciate it. Are there any lists of ready-to-use command line options for video capture, then, without having to dig through the man file and testing various options?
