capturing dv without firewire?

  usernut 17:47 21 Aug 2008

I don,t have firewire in my laptop and don,t have a card slot either to add a card.
my mini dv camcorder only connects to pc's with firewire ports and to the tv.
is there any way I could connect my laptop to the tv and capture video playing on the tv through the camcorder?
ie.. connecting my camcorder to the tv and playing what it recorded and at the same time have my pc connected to the tv and recording what the camcorder is playing. lol

Does your Camcorder have AV in and out or S-videoin/out if so you may be able to connect to the tv that way .Unlikely your tv willhave S-videoout but it should have av in and out either by phono sockets or scart

click here is one solution but this looks like it is from the USA. Try Googling Firewire to USB cables and you may find a UK source.
