Analog input Hey there i just brought a JVC GZ-MG27, i read up about it and i got the impression you could record old VCR tapes and turn them into a digital format that could then be burnt to DVD. So far i have not been able to find this option, Any suggestions. Cheers

Re: Analog input

Here is the link to the user manual if you need it; The camera is not designed to have this option, check page 11 there is no A/V input possible to the camera, only output. The easiest way to digitise VCR tapes is to use a video capture card/device attached to your PC - on the next link is a good discussion of the process and a couple of examples of the equipment required, there are many others also; Hope this helps :)

No analog input option on my camcorder menu!!!!!

analog input are those using RCA plug or mini headphone plug, so if you are making no connections to this ports, maybe its off. Or an option to switch between digital and analog and selecting digital input would turn off analog input.

Digital camcorder to convert VHS tape to PC for DVD burn

You can't with what you've got I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but in order to play tapes in a vcr and run them through a digital camcorder for output to a computer, the camcorder must have s-video or av inputs. Your camera only has s-video or av outputs, used for sending from the camera to the vcr or tv. Also, some cameras have the inputs but don't support analog to digital pass-through (which is what you are describing). With these cameras you input from the vcr and record it to the tape in the camera, and then output it to the computer. Without the inputs, you can't do either one.
