Hi All, I have a ti4200 which I think can capture video to pc. What cables do I need to connect the VCR to the card. The back of the VCR only has in/out audio and in/out aerial connections. Am I missing something? Info very much appreciated. Thanks.
No one interested I guess. GroupFC. I don't think you can connect directly from the VCR to PC. Only from Cam to PC which I have done. I have played my old tapes thorugh the TV and record on to Cam, then transfer to PC and burn. Some loss of quality doing it this way.
You can easily connect your VCR to you PC for video capture if your VCR has an S-Video/scart connection and there's a Video In connection on your graphics card. The video in connection is most probably an S-Video type socket - so you'll need a S-video cable, (or an S-video to Scart Cable).
Your graphics card may have shipped with a capture utility, but I would reccomend the excellent VirtualDub (search on google for a free download). You'll also have to ensure you've installed the video capture drivers that should have been shipped with you graphics card.
