    Default Copying VHS either to my PC or to my JVC GR-DX95EK

    Hi folks, Its my first time to this forum so I'm a bit uncertain how to go about things.
    Anyway, I have no problems loading and editing stuff from my JVC GR-DX95EK with Pinnacle Studio 9 on my PC. I have some old stuff on VHS though, which I'd like to work into my videos. Can anyone advise me how to move it from VHS recorder to either my PC or the Digital Camcorder?

    Thanks.

    BSC.

    You're in luck! Your GR-DX95EK camera has analogue in connections. It's therefore likely that it jas analogue to digital pass through, so your manual should have more information on how to connect an external source. However, the crux of it will be:

    1) connect you VCR using s-video and audio connections. This will probably be a mini-jack connection combining all three and will have come with your camera (it will be a 3.5mm jack to 3 x phone type connections)
    2) connect your camcorder to your PC via firewire
    3) set your camcorder to record
    4) press play on your VCR
    5) record as you would normally
    3) press play

    Default Copying VHS to PC

    Thanks for that Marc. I've just discovered the small print in the manual though which tells me
    "If your VCR has a SCART connector
    To use this camera as a player use the provided cable adapter. To use this camera as a recorder use a commercially available output cable adapter"
    This may explain why I was getting no joy with the SCART adapter, which came with the camera. I'm able to record from an analogue camcorder using the method you suggested quite easily. The VCR only has a SCART outlet so it looks like I'd better get out and buy a proper adapter from somewhere. Thanks again Marc
    Cheers,

    Bill
