DVI and aspire 6920

Hi everyone,
I am looking for a solution so that i can connect a camcorder to my pc and capture the video. Having no DVI input, i was wondering if there is some form of extension or cable change that can be done so as i can get my home movies onto DVD.
Please help i have been searching the net for 3 days now.

    Ok and thanks for the reply. Since i posted the message i have hooked the camera to the TV which has my DVD writer pluged into it. From there i will write to a rewritable dvd which can then used on my PC for editing before the final dvd is written. I know its a long wineded way of doing things but it works.
    Thanks again for the reply

You cannot direclty hook it up, you will need a usb port, and a sandisk SD card reader. Then you can see photos. But for you to record videos, you need to play them on TV, because there are no ports that are like those of a camcorder. The camcorder gives the videos by tape, so you can only read them by tape.
Sorry

How do i connect my acer aspire 5810T to my tv, thanks


I am assuming that you want to display your laptop on your TV. Since you did not post what TV you have, I am listing multiple ways to connect your laptop to your TV. Just pick the right type connection that works for both your laptop and TV, connect OUT of laptop to an INPUT on your TV. Set your TV to that input (mode) and if you see nothing on the TV, look at your laptop keyboard at the F keys (function keys) for the one with a double display image on it, pree the function button and the F key to set the laptop to external display.
1. S-Video – This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA – If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI – Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box – This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.
If by chance you are attempting to hook up the TV to the laptop to capture video from the TV, you need to hook up your wire to the OUTPUT of the TV and you will need a capture card or hardware and software to do this. I hope this helps and good luck. Please vote appropriately and leave a comment.

Sony handycam ccd-trv35e how to video record on my laptop


Hi there.

The computer must have standard Audio/Video (A/V) RCA input jacks and compatible video capture software to complete this procedure. Because there are many different video capture applications on the market and we cannot reasonably know which video capture software you are using, Sony is unable to provide specific instructions or support for software we do not manufacture. However, many video capture applications have detailed help files, including specific instructions about capturing and importing video from a camcorder to a computer.

The help files should be available in the Help menu of the video capture software or in a separate file on the software disc. If you cannot find instructions in the help file or on the disc included with your software, consult the software manufacturer for more detailed support information.
  1. Connect an A/V cable to the A/V output jack of the camcorder:

    If your camcorder has standard A/V RCA output jacks, use standard A/V cables for the connection. avstnd.png
    If your camcorder has a mini A/V output jack, use an A/V cable with a mini connection on one end.

    av_mini.png
  2. Connect the other end of the A/V cable to the A/V input jack on the computer.
  3. Turn on the camcorder to the VCR, VTR or PLAYBACK mode.
  4. Cue the video in the camcorder to the beginning of the video footage to be transferred.
  5. Turn on the computer.
  6. Start the video capture software.
  7. Begin playing the video in the camcorder.
  8. Begin importing the video with the video capture software.
Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Where does the error show up? on your TV or laptop? I hooked up my laptop with a DVI connection to the TV. I had to use the TV remote and select the right input from the laptop.

How can i download better quality video from mini dv to pc


Hi there,

You do need a good capture card if you want the best quality. However these tend to be a bit expensive and I have found that if you have a DVD recorder with an i-link input, then copying to the recorder will give you excellent results. After you have made the recording, you can then edit it very easily with say DVD shrink on your PC.

It may even be cheaper to buy a DVD recorder with i-link features than having to buy a capture card!

cheers

Cant capture video


Not having camcorder control is normal, as the ADVC110 doesn't translate DV (AV/C) control to anything else. It just accepts and replies to deck control commands so the capture application doesn't get stuck waiting for a response.

First off, make sure you only have the ADVC110, your VCR, and your computer connected. No other Firewire devices.

Be sure your have the output from your VCR connected to the ADVC's input. Connect your VCR's output to your TV. You should see in iMovie the same image you see on your TV, slightly delayed.

Connecting analong camcorder to computer


The only Analog camcorder that has a USB Connection for transferring pictures or video is the SC-L770. The SC-L770 can transfer video (live or recorded) and still photos through the USB connection. You can also transfer audio using the audio cable provided. After installing the driver and software, you can begin transferring data using the software provided. Connecting to a PC 1. Connect a USB cable to the USB port on the PC. 2. Connect the other end of the USB cable into the proper terminal on the camcorder. (USB jack) 3. Connect the audio cable to the Line input jack of the PC. If the PC has no Line input jack, connect the audio cable to the MIC input jack. In this case, however, a noise may be produced depending on the PC. Notes: * If you disconnect the USB cable from the PC or the camcorder while transferring, the data transmission will stop and the data may be damaged. * If you connect the USB cable to a PC via a USB HUB or simultaneously connect the USB cable along with other USB devices, the camcorder may not work properly. * In this case, remove the other USB devices from the PC and reconnect the camcorder. Some other Analog Camcorders have a snapshot mode which allows you to take a still photo with your camcorder. However, you cannot transfer these to a computer unless you purchase additional hardware such as a capture card. Some capture cards have analog a/v inputs which will allow you to use the a/v outputs on the camcorder to connect to your pc and transfer images and video. You can purchase a capture card at most computer and electronics stores. Samsung does not support capture cards.
