A TV card will do the job. These start at about £30. My card is a Hauppauge WinTV. No problems and a very good TV picture.

Don't depend on DVD as being the perfect storage medium for your film collection. There are all sorts of horror stories amongst the DVD cognoscenti about DVD rot, delamination and a number of other dire things which all result in the same thing - the DVD is unreadable.
