Justin has a headset that starts to make a bunch of clicks after about an hour of use when he podcasts. Leo says he believes there's a faulty designed chipset out there that causes a memory that gets translated into a series of clicks. Leo recommends using an MAudio or Focus Rite Scarlet interface in between his headset and the computer. It will convert the analog to digital and it should fix it. If not, there's a memory leak that will require powering the devices down and then back up.
analog to digital converters
Lynn has a bunch of old VHS home movies. How can she convert them so she can watch them? Leo says that the best way these days is to go to a service, like Scan Cafe. They have professional equipment and can color correct. When factoring in the equipment she would need to do it herself; the VCR, the cables, the analog to digital converter to get it into the computer, and the time, she may as well just pay Scan Cafe to do it.
Max wants to use his dorm's projector to watch the Super Bowl, but it doesn't support HDMI. Can he route it through his home theater system? Leo says that S-Video is probably the best option for that old system. Many older cable boxes support S-Video as well.
The best option is to get an analog to digital converter, though. Max may also need an analog TV Tuner, and they're pretty cheap. Scott Wilkinson agrees, and says that even going with a VCR connection to daisy chain it will solve the issue. He doesn't need it to record, but he can use it for the Tuner.
