Hi everyone. Thanks for all the past help. I need help viewing my camcorder movies thru my HP Media Center PC M7250N. I have hooked my Sony Handcam CCD-TRV68 (not digital) to my PC using an S-video cable and the audio cable but can't for the life of me figure out how to watch the movies on my pc. I have also set it to line out on my camcorder display menu. What program should I use? Please help!! thanks, Mike

Sadly Mike, the s video is an output to tv not a capture you would need a capture card or usb interface to view handy cam on PC.
You could also get a HD TV card with capture facility.

An interface is a device thet provides the connections to allow your video cam to be recognised by your PC.
You can purchase a usb capture device USB Capture
or
A video capture card Review
You will also need a decent Video Edting Program eg:Ulead Videostudio,Pinnacle Studio etc
