I do this on an old Mac. It requires a specific card and specific software to do this. I would guess a PC needs the same set-up. Try S-video.

That is usually a problem with slow (or heavily utilized) network connection. If you don't mind waiting a little, play the video and click the 'pause' button. Wait for the video to buffer (you can see the progress bar growing slowly) before playing the video again. Hope this helps.

Camcorder should have a usb connection on it someplace, This will be a mini usb port which will connect to your computers usb port. Cable will have one standard usb connection, other end of the cable will have mini usb end. VCR video will connect to a yellow connector if there is one on your computer otherwise you will have to check out the computer store for a video capture card and put it into your computer or have them do it. Hope this helps.

PC to tv VGA cord hookup. Installed but it said it has no single, will be used as main monetor. Workes but I ca'nt use my keybord to try to get single to tv. a1600n has onley one VGA port and nothing else...


First idea to try: make sure the TV is on (saying no signal) before you turn on the computer. Several TV/monitor units will not respond if the computer is already on when the TV is turned on. Check that you have a good cable (they do fail) and well-seated connections. Then double check that your VGA port is sending a signal out; use another monitor to check. You may have to change your BIOS or graphics card settings. If no signal at the port, you should also check, if using a graphics card, that you have sufficient power to the card from your power supply and it is well-seated in the slot.

I hope this helps.

To my HP Pavilion Media Center A1430N, I lost ALL video signal


Hi:
One quick thing to check is to see if your Video card is fully seated down in the motherboard? Sometimes they can pop up a bit, and you lose your output.
If that doesnt help, you could remove your memory, one stick at a time, to see if that helps. This could be the cause if you added memory from the old computer.

Can't record audio


I have converted home videos on my PC this way. I have a Sony camcorder whose output connects
to my firewire card in the PC. I also use windows Movie maker. While it is recording, I don't hear the audio. After saving the file and playing it back, I hear the audio, along with seeing the movie. Windows movie maker allows me to stop, start, and record the movie. It has complete control over the
Sony camcorder by using the firewire port on the PC.
