I am trying to use on location cs4 to capture video from a VCR through a canopus A/D converter box.  The box works fine, and i can record video, but i can't figgure out how to have it stop recording automatically.  I would love to have it detect for itself when the tape has finished playing...but i understand this probably can't happen.  The second best would be to limit recording to 6 hours, and then i can cut down the clip from there.

I would also be open to any of the other products in CS4 master collection (i work with premiere too) to accomplish this.

Thanks.

I dont know if that is possible since it's not a true PVR,
CS4 is a desktop capture right? and captures a media player playing the input from the VCR?
that's where they differ
Video capture cards have a  PVR, or TV tuner cards that actualy act as a media player and capture device
like mine  which is a Winfast xp, has this setting to record for so many secs and what video format
here's what my winfast PVR looks like with the capture time enabled it is showing what is on my cable on TV
