Premiere Elements "native" video capture is by using a firewire port with either a digital tape camera so the video stream is already digital, or by using a converter device between an analog device and the firewire port, such as the Amazon.com: Grass Valley/Canopus 77010150100 ADVC110 Converter: Computers & Accessories
If you have a card plugged in to your motherboard, the card maker must write/supply a device driver to link the card to the program... such as the really old Pinnacle DV500 card that I used many years ago with Premiere 6 (this is the OLD P6, not the newer CS6)
You are going to have to use the software bundled with the card... and HOPE that the video you capture is compatible with Premiere Elements

Thanks John. Good information.
Thanks again John. I think the Win TV is a digital converter so I will look into the information in the links you suggested.

I will also say that the Grass Valley device works very well... wife found a box of old VHS camcorder tapes while we were unpacking after moving, so I bought an ADVC110 to connect to a VCR (her original camcorder was long gone) and the firewire port in my computer
I used ScenalyzerLive Page to do the actual capture and she now has 6 DVD's to watch this winter when it is too cold/wet to do anything outside... stuff she hasn't seen since the late 70's and early 80's
NOTE... process steps
1 - power on to VCR so there is a signal for ADVC to "see"
2 - select ANALOG input on ADVC
3 - start Scenalyzer, select the firewire port
4 - press play on VCR and tell Senalyzer to capture
Hi John, Great suggestion. I’ll check it out.
