Default Device for two-way video capture

Please forgive me for putting identical messages on a number of newsgroups,
all dealing with video editing. If there is one group that covers the whole
field, rather than being specifically aimed at one brand of hardware, would
somebody please tell me.

I have no experience in digital video editing, although I am reasonably
computer literate. I would like to find a device that will allow me to both:

(1) Transfer digital video in NTSC format from my Windows XP laptop
computer, which has an external SVGA port and a USB 1.1 port to a TV or VHS
VCR. I want to use that to (A) view jpg files on a TV screen, and (B) supply
titles to my VHS home recordings.

(2) Transfer NTSC video to my laptop in order to make video CDs or DVDs from
my VHS tapes.

I spent an hour in Fry's yesterday looking for a device that would do both,
but came up empty handed.

What you need is VIVO (video in video out). Several companies now
include the feature on high end cards or special vivo versions of their
budget cards. These include ATI's All in Wonder series and NVidia's
Personal Cinema (manufactured by different companies under different
names). CompUSA usually sells the AIW's and the eVGA P.C.'s. Consider
that normally unless you spend a lot of money, VIVO is usally a feature
of the lower performance models.

TV-out will work for slide shows on your TV (composite RCA or s-video
connection) and do analog playback. Video input allow you to use it as
a capture device also and do analog records (i.e. non DV).

But for digital capture from a DV cam or similar device, you'll need a
firewire card.

I would upgrade USB 1.1 to 2.0 since faster & same $20-
asumes software uses both.

U can also split functions : Vcard with TVout & separate
card 4 inputs in case cost 4 1 is really high. This requires
2 PCI slots tho. Recently Pinnacle 4 TVin was $20 at
CompUSA.

Any advise given is my attempt to show appreciation for all
the excellent help I've received here but I'm no MVP so it
may only apply NUGS (Normally, Usually, Generally, Sometimes
