Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV118 Camcorder
We recently bought this handycam at a great price, but are not able to figure out how to load the video to either our PC or MacBook Pro. Our other camcorder uses a firewire cable to load to the Mac, it records on a MiniDV tape. This camcorder uses the Hi8 tapes, so we didn't know how to get the video to one of our computers, with only the AV cables included that allows us to see the shot video on TV.
MisterSony is quite correct about the Capture card.
While most computers have the built-in ability to capture sound via the 'Line In' port, digitally recording the Video signal is a totally different aspect.
Certain TV Tuner cards also have Video Capture abilities (in addition to the tuner they have a VCR input). They often work in tandem with your Video Display card via the 'Feature' connector.
Both types allow the incoming signal to be displayed and recorded digitally at your choice of speeds, resolutions and formats.
My preferences in the past have been the VideoBlaster line by Creative Labs. There are many others.
I'll do a little research as to what's currently out there and post my findings directly.
