How can I record from VHS to Computer with Sabrent TV Tuner?
Hello - I can play the VHS and it shows up on the monitor but I don't hear anything and I can't figure out how I record it onto the hard drive. I press record on the Sabrent TV Tuner remote and the big red dot appears in the top left hand corner but once the tape is finished running, I can't find anything anywhere.
Re: How can I record from VHS to Computer with Sabrent TV...
Did you install the driver for the remote control? In either case, the video will automatically start playing on your computer but not recording. You can just click on the record icon without using the remote. It sets up a folder under your Documents. It should then show you the icon so you can name the file.
I am having the same issue with the sound though. Haven't yet solved it. Will post the solution if found
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You can record from an external component, such as a camcorder or VCR, connected to any of the Recorder's external inputs.
1. Make sure that the component you want to record from is connected properly to the Recorder. See page 14.
2. Press AUX repeatedly to select the external input to record from.

If the entire VHS is full then you can easily transfer the VHS contents to the DVD. The video will play while it is recording onto the DVD, but you don't have to have it hooked up to any TV for it to record. Now if you don't know how long the VHS content is that you want to record to DVD, then you will have to hook up the player to a TV so that you can press stop when you reach the end of the content you want recorded. At least this is true in the way that I use to transfer VHS to DVD:
1) Turn on the unit 2) Insert VHS tape 3) Insert DVD-+R or DVD-+ RW 4) Using remote, press VCR 5)Using remote, press play then pause the tape where you want to start recording. 6)Using remote, press DVD 7) Using the remote, press DUBBING. The VHS should start to play and the DVD should start recording
When using this method, don't hit the RECORD button!
Two choices: 1) get a tuner for your computer and watch the live or recorded show the monitor (Similar to watching a download from the networks or HULU.com) 2) get a set top tuner with an s-video out. Connect an S-video cable to a video cable signal adapter (Mini-dim 8-pin connector to S-VHS and CVBS jack) and connect that to the monitor. Then hook up speakers to the set top box.
What he means, is that you should get a cable to connect your VHS player with the soundcard. Presumably your TV card doesn't have integral sound. Look at the connections. Your VHS player probably takes phono cable, while your soundcard probably takes mini-jack. So a cable that has a single stereo mini-jack in one end and two (red and white or occasionally black) phone connections in the other end. Those are easy to come by if you go to an electronics store.
You will need a TV Tuner expansion card for your computer. If you buy a TV Tuner expansion card and install it, and connect an antenna or cable TV cable, you will be able to watch TV shows on your computer monitor while using your computer. With some TV tuner cards, you can also record TV for watching it later, or even hook up your VCR and record VHS tapes and home videos to put on DVD. This is a more complicated topic and instructions should come with the TV Tuner expansion card you purchase.
TV tuner cards usually run in the range of $20-75 and will fit in most computers. You can buy them online and at computer or electronics stores. Installation is fairly simple and the instructions and software are included (unless you buy a used one)
If your plan is to copy a VHS movie to a blank VHS tape, the connections would require a 3 wire RCA connector/cable. The unit where the original movie will be played will be the player. Connect the yellow video RCA cable to the VIDEO OUT, the red & white to the AUDIO L/R OUT. On the 2nd unit designated as recorder, slip in the blank VHS tape. Connect the other end of the RCA 3 wire cable to yellow VIDEO IN, the red & white to the AUDIO L/R IN. Connect the RF OUT of the 2nd unit (recorder to the ANT IN of a TV set. Set the TV to either Channel 3 or 4 as the case may be.
If the recorder has a manual selector or via remote, pls verify that it is set to Video and not tuner (or channels) input.
Press Record on the recorder (2nd unit), press play on the 1st unit (player). The TV will serve as monitor to your copying progress.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or shoould you need additional information.
