Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
There it is. It had to happen. Well, no, it didn’t have to, I didn’t want it to, I just knew it was about to happen. My big TV set is dead. Since last week, I couldn’t turn it on from the remote anymore, so I knew there was something wrong going on, I knew it was going to die on me, and I’d end up stuck without TV, in the middle of an Alias season, and right when the first Lord of the Rings movie is about to be on Canal+. Do I really have to explain how serious all of that is for me?
Well, it’s simple. It’s an emergency, it’s vital, I need a TV capture card (no need for a tuner, I use the VCR’s) and a little video card that could be recognized as a second card in Windows. If I remember correctly, the 14 inches screen that’s laying around somewhere in a corner of my room should still work fine, so it would make a fine replacement TV. Ok, two little video cards, or one that has video in and out, that shouldn’t be too expensive. Does anyone here know of a store where I could get that for ten euros?
