Re: does this product suporrt VCRs

Yes I see no reason why this would not work as all you are doing is providing a signal via RF so wether its a antenna or VCR it make no difference hope this helps

I just purchased a ge amplifier antenna for my magnavox tv and i am only receiving 1 channel and its very fuzzy

Your television has generally several receiving modes...such as video 1/2, cable, dvd , satellite, ext antennae. So make sure that it is set on external antennae. Then you will probably need to program in the stations that it is receiving again.. Meaning that ..before bought and installed this product your tv only recognized the channels with you need to run a new channel scan.. One last thing make sure vcr/dvd/tv button on any other devices you have is in the TV position..or if it is not make sure the signal amp is going into the input plug in the back of that device...rather than directly into the back of your tv... I think the combination of these things will solve your problem. good luck

Ever since digital TV started, I have had a problem with my picture occasionally glitching/pixilating, plus the sound freezes when this happens and I lose part of the broadcast. I currently have an HD TV...

Basically you are not going to get good quality TV reception on an internal antenna unless you live very close to the transmitter aerial with no significant metal structures (including buildings) in the way. You may get a slight improvement by placing the antenna near a window and away from any large pieces of metal or other electrical devices, especially any with a large magnetic field (anything with a motor in it). You may improve the signal / noise ratio by making sure that you have good quality, foil screened (satelite grade) cable between your antenna and TV set.
If the building has a (shared) roof top antenna you might get a better signal, which can be boosted using an in-line signal amplifier from that - but only if it is pointed at the right transmitter. However, as you will be installing the amplifier close to your set it will (just like the amplified antenna you are using) also amplify any electrical interference picked up by the cable as it passes down through the building - including from cars outside.
However your best bet is going to be cable or satelite TV

Play & Record VHS through TV Tuner Card

You need to connect the ariel to the vcr, then the vcr to the card, using a male/female fly lead. Then I suggest putting an origional film tape into the vcr, press play on the vcr and then scan in the channels on the card. It should pick up the vcr's output of the film that is playing.

Diamond Multimedia ( VC500) Video Capture After I installed the program files from the disc and set up all the three cables for the audio and video, everything is hooked on right and tight but once I plug...

I was having this problem also. I originally plugged my 3 video cables into the VCR outlets in the front of the vcr. I finally turned the vcr around and found two other sets of video out plugs. One was to a dvd/dvr and the other was a vcr out. I took the plugs from the front of the vcr and plugged it into the dvd/dvr out and it worked! Good luck with your problem. Hope the resolution is just as simple.

Can this product use a VCR

so long as your VHS has an RF out then it will work as it is effectively the same as plugging in an antenna.

Video output from VHS recorder

does your television have multiple scart connectors? Sometimes some models have only 1 connector that will accept RGB signals... Another thing you can check are VCR settings - scart component video output is not "official" and hence you might need to look at some of the setting if you need to enable it. Another possibility is that your scart cable may not have your rgb signals connected (based on wikipedia reference: "not all SCART cables make use of all the pins, often leaving out RGB signals. In many cases there is also no way to see which type of signal that is currently displayed on the TV set."

No sound when recording

when you record on the vcr make sure you have connected the audio cables from the tv to your vcr. You might need to use the composite cable and audio cables together to get the best recording.
