Hi,

What you will want to do is use one of three video outputs depending on your video inputs on the laptop, if you have any designed for this. That would be a 1394 socket, a USB 2.0 socket or an Analog Video In (yellow RCA). I can help you if you do not understand what I just noted.

Mostly, your laptop has to have Video Capture. If you don't on the laptop itself, there are docking stations that have it available with an independent video card.

Then, connect the video out to a video in. Open up a recorder like Nero or another and setup the options so your feed is see on screen inside the software. Once you attain this point, you can start recording and saving, then editing. Do a series of test runs to get used to the controls.

What is your situation with these input options. Please describe what you have or don't have and we can explore your options further. Then I can really help you out.

Oh, and let us know the make and model of your laptop. Look on the bottom for the model number as this is usually more helpful from what is displayed on the top and wrist rest of your laptop.

Regards,
Worldvet

What mother board fit the Sony VAIO VGX-XL2


A micro ATX or mATC motherboard will not fit any Sony VAIO VGX-XL* model HTPC. These systems have a non-standard form factor, proprietary motherboard built for Sony by ASUStek (based on their ASUS P5 boards).

Micro ATX or mATX boards do not match the mounting screw pattern, and the case and rear panel would require major modifications (and many internal components removed and not reinstalled) for any replacement motherboard. The Power Supplty is also non-standard 18-pin version of an ITX low profile model power supply.

There are a few upgrades which can be made to a stock XL2 (up to 4GB RAM, better low-profile video/graphics card, DVD optical drive replacement with Blu-ray, a SSD system OS/BOOT drive), but the motherboard, power supply, BIOS and and OEM Pentium D processor cannot be upgraded (because of a locked BIOS microcode). The XL3 model offers a few more opportunities for upgrade (up to 8GB RAM, upgradeable Core2 Duo processor options) but the rest of the restrictions apply (motherboard, power supply not upgradeable).

We need to know how we can do the conection to wireless network. We are only conected by ethernet cable but we need to be conected wireless. We have two laptops at hope.


your laptop must have wireless adapters and you should be using a wireless router or a wireless access point. if you're already using those devices, your laptops should automatically detect the wireless signal (look for the wireless icon, ususally it's located at the bottom right hand corner of your screen if you are using windows but if you're using mac, you need to enable the airport) and you just need to connect to it (note: you should enter the correct wireless password/network key if it's enabled on your wireless router).

hope this'll help you but if you have other concern, just give the exact model of the wireless router/modem/access poitn that you are using and the wireless adapters installed on the laptops

ciao!
