I use one of these click here
Comes complete with software.
Inputs are RCA (phono) plugs so if you've only got a SCART connection on the back of the VCR,you'll need to get a SCART to RCA adapter.

The best option I have found is to get an old Video player, plug your Co-ax into that and run another cable from the Video player to the computer.

I don't know why it makes adifference, but it does.

Sorry I did not read it properly.

have you set your flytv to recieve PAL signal ?

Start the Video and run flytv autotuner to find the right channel.

If there is a choice of Cable or Antenna, select Antenna.

I have copied a load of my old tapes to dvd via a flytv capture card, you need some special leads, scart to rca and adapter audio rca to stereo mini jack, set the input to AV-in, and dont forget to connect the flytv audio out to sound card audio-in.

Sorry I forgot to add- On the Video Rcorder set the channel to AV-- Sometimes channel 0
