Thread: Need help converting from VHS to my dv camera

    Default Need help converting from VHS to my dv camera

    I have a new mac G5 with Imovie. I want to transfer my old home movies from VHS to digital video. I have a panasonic dv203. I have tried hooking the video cables from the VCR to the A/V out port in the camera, but the video will not show on my camera screen, and so I can't tape the VHS onto the digital video tape. Does anyone have any experience with using this camera to capture VHS? I was told that this camera is capable of doing it, but I can't find any information about it! Thanks for your help!

    Don't have experience of this camcorder myslef, but any specifications that I find on the WEb suggest that the camera does not support AV input. So you won't be able to transfer VHS directly to the camera.

    Sorry
    COMPAQ something or other with 500Gb Boot Disk, 1Tb external Firewire Disk, 4Gb Memory and a super duper sound card, 19" TFT Monitor etc etc etc
