think i am going to take this tv card back tommorow, and get one with an s-video socket on it.
Cant be arsed with all this lark anymore,, been at it all day.
Can get the sky box signal onto the card no problem,, thats fine,, although not as clear as i would have hoped. Sound is fine, as it all runs from the tv card straight into my audigy soundcard,, so i get awesome 5:1 surround sound .
Its just this video lark.
Thought i would get it all done at the same time, as i have been meaning to get around to editing and then copying my vids onto the hardrive, or onto cd/dvd.
I have a scart to s-vid connector,, might as well get the next model tv card with the s-vid socket.
Might be able to help me with one thing though,,,,,
Have connected a scart from the vcr, out to this s-vid box,,,then took a single phono cable from the yellow socket on the connector, to the yellow composite connector on the tv card,,,,,,,, whooooaa,,,,,, get the picture from the vcr at last,,,, but no sound !!! obviously, i have not connected the two audio leads nywhere so no sound,,, My question is,,,
If i get a better card, with s-vid,,,,then will the cable carry the picture and the audio ????
Would be a waste of time upgrading, if it only carries the picture.
As i said earlier,, i am a bit green with all this a/v to pc stuff,,, but i have taken a huge run at the learning curve today,, and am just about holding on.
Mind you,,,, once i have got the s-vid sorted out,, and have a channel for sky, and a channel for vcr then i will be chuffed to bits,,,, however,, then the problems will start,,,,,,,,,,,
How do you get the video onto the hdd or copied onto disc ?????
