After having the video capture card fitted and connecting all appropriate cables I can capture the video, but not the audio from my VHS player. Cables are connected from the VHS player using yellow to yellow cable connected to the supplied jack for the S-video input into the card, Audio connected using 2 rca plug into single connected into the audio input on the card. Any help that can be provided will be appreciated.

Re: capturing audio with my DVT 2000
Double click the little yellow speaker icon in the bottom right corner of the screen. Click 'Options'. Click on 'Properties'. Check the boxes, click 'OK'. Make sure nothing is muted.
You can also go into 'Control Panel' and then 'Sounds and Multimedia'. Check you see if that is set properly. Write back and let me know.

You need to buy a TV card which comes with audio /video composite sockets. these are female RCA or phono sockets which are also found on your camera.TV cards come with their own software to be able to capture pictures from your Hi 8 Camcorder using the av cables like the ones you use from your DVD to your TV set. There are other cards which carry the av sockets and come with video capture software. These cards are usually PCI cards which are fitted into your PCI slot in your PC motherboard. One other software that comes with such a card is Pinnacle Studio. Its called the Pinnacle AV/DV pci capture card. The one I use is just a DC 10 which works with Studios version 8. Please try any of these cards for your video capture
What cable connections are you using? HDMI has to be enabled on you motherboard (high def. audio), if its S-Vidio you must run a seperate and dedicated audio cable from headphone jack to TV.
My first gues would be to right click your audio icon on your desktop toolbar and check your playback and recording settings, make sure the tuner card is the source, hope this helps!
The plugs you speak of are called RCA plugs, (Male side has an outside ring with "slots" around the edge, and a pin in the center. Female side has a short round "riser" with a hole in it). You need just standard Audio/Video hookup cables, available at any electronics store.. Walmart/Target/Kmart has them in the TV section.
They get plugged into the Audio (Red & White) OUT of the VCR, into the Audio IN (Red & White) of the Easy Capture. The Yellow lead is for Video In/Out between the VCR and Easy Capture.
The black is probably the S-Video connector, (round, has very small square hole, surronded by 4, 5, or 7 tiny pin holes) that can be also used to connect video/audio between VCR(if so equipped) and Easy Capture.
Get a set of audio/video dubbing cables (abt $10 usually), connect Red to Red, White to White, Yellow to Yellow. Plug the Easy Capture USB cable into your computer (most likely), start the capture program. Start your vcr, hit Play. You should see your vcr tape playing on the computer screen.
Your VHS recorder has a Coaxe output! So does your card the sound will be replicated there as well, now it would not hurt to get a capture card that has those plugs as you rendering would be much more prestine. Pluag you VHS into the coaxe input on your card set the channel to 3 and you got it bud!!!
The problem would appear to be your audio settings.
You have the audio input set to Realtek HD Audio Input. That is the audio input on your soundcard, not the video capture card. You will need to change this so that you have the capture card selected. (I am not familiar with this exact model of card so I can't tell you exactly what it will be called.)
Alternatively, if you are trying to capture the audio via your soundcard (not recommended as it can cause sync problems) you will need to make sure that the 'line in' channel in enabled in the Windows mixer:
Start>Control Panel>Sounds & Audio Devices>Audio Tab>Click Volume in sound recording section>Tick Line In
