As a matter of fact...there is 1 movie I just bought that was never (and probably never will be) released on DVD. So I bought it on VHS for something like 2 bucks with the intention of converting it to a digital format.
I ordered all the major parts for my new system today, I'll have to just bite the bullet and order a tv tuner card and just try it out.
