No analogue cards can capture at DVD quality.  The top of the line expensive 
ones can probably come close, but the conversion to an analogue signal loses 
a lot of quality.  The only way you can get DVD quality (or higher) is with a 
digital TV card, but then you can only capture from live TV (i.e. not from a 
VCR.)  This is of course only useful if your local TV stations broadcast a 
digital signal.
