Can I run a VCR with my computer.


Hi folks,

I am looking for advice on connecting my VCR to my HP laptop. My wife and I made a video of our wedding and I would like to copy the video and save it to dvd.

Anyone know how it is done?

I've been a linux user for a number of years but in this area I am a complete no hopper.

Regards
John

You'd want a TV tuner preferably with an svideo input as well, so you can copy as a single UHF single or svideo / audio.

Thanks Acid,

Is a tuner an hardware item I need to buy or is it internal software driven?

cheers
