I'm transfering some video footage from VHS to my computer's hard drive. The PC side of things is fine, as I've already got gigapocket and a TV card on my Sony PC. The trouble is, my video player hasn't got an s-video port so I can't connect it that way. At the moment I am using the line-out wires which are plugged into a scart adaptor on the video, with the line-out wires going straight into my pc. I have also had to connect the aerial lead from the back of the video and plug it into the pc. It all sounds very confusing but I guess I would just like some advice on connecting up a VHS to a PC when the S-video port isn't available!
Thanks for your time
Ps I've seen that you can buy a scart adaptor that has an S-video connection in it. So I could buy the adaptor, plug it into the back of the video, and then run the S-video cable from the adaptor and into my PC! Do you think this is a good idea? Also, I could spend £45 on a new VHS player with an S-video port but I only really wanna spend that much money if I really have to!
Thanks again for your time!
