BT 878 based cards have nearly instant response.. But when recording
application (or DirectShow I believe)..
I haven't seen any latest model tuner cards, so I don't know.. I'm
used to the WinTV and AverTV Studio stuff.

For non-HD gaming, I prefer any tuner with a BT-878 chip on it.. WinTV
and AverTV have those chips (though the AverTV has a poor grounding on
some models, but that was 3 years ago)..
When using a card with that chip, use DCaler, and when you select
overscan to 0 on all corners, you get a nice 1:1 pixel picture, so it's
perfect.. All-In-Wonders aren't great, they have an 5% overscan that
is locked, and not user-changable, and you can only really use THEIR
program with it..
(on DScaler, you don't even need the drivers to the card, it directly
communicates with the cards BT 878 chip...)
Be warned though, with DScaler, sound is always an issue.. But, if you
plug the console directly into the soundcard, you'll be fine..
I have a sound card(an Audigy) and though recording in Xbox footage at
720p or higher would be cool, it's not a necessity, so with that said do
you have any card, in specific, you could recommend? Like brand and
model no? About the only thing I've ever known were the AiW and TV
Wonder lines. I've been looking at the TV Wonder Elite lately...
Also, these others card, do they have the whole lag thing going on in
them that the AiW/TV Wonder series seem to have(where when you press a
direction on the controller, it takes a second for it to show on the
video being displayed/recorded on the PC)? I've never really been
unhappy with anything the AiW did in terms of recording, in fact I did
but the only thing I hated was that lag...really made it difficult to do
a lot of stuff(like combo training vids, etc).
