Re: Sony video Hi 8
CCD-TRV138 is analog camera and you can not attach directly with PC. You need MPEG Card or something in PC to digitize the analog audio-video signal. That card will give you input connections for camera.

To set the time / date stamp you'll need your remote control and you'll need to hook it to a TV with AV inputs. Be sure to correctly select the AV input the camera is plugged into. This is the most overlooked step that causes a lot of users frustration.
I've attached a YouTube video on how to accomplish the time/date setting.
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
You need RCA pins AV cable and if your video player has scart input then get scart adapter so AV cable plug in scart adapter and it will be hooked in video player. All these info are mentioned in user manual of camcorder. Click Sony Support to download free copy of user manual and check page-7 and items 6 and 8 that needs to connect camcorder with video player. Thanks.
Sony CCD-TRV138 is analog video-8 camcorder that can not be hooked directly with computer because computer needs digital data file where as this camcorder is an analog and has no digital file format.
If you want to transfer CCD-TRV138 movies in computer, you need to convert its analog Audio-Video signal into digital format then save it in computer for further process/ edit etc.
Hook CCD-TRV138 with DVD Recorder in AV Input and burn a DVD, this process will convert analog movie into digital data format, put that CD in your computer and copy-paste files in computer.
Hope this info will help you.
the camera should have "a/v"out rca jacks.
yellow is video,other is audio,hook it to your tv or vcr.
YES,you can capture to your computer,but youll need a device with capturing/editing software.
dazzle,is an external adapter,and pinnicle used to sell a package,with an internal pci card,which is capable of importing "analog"(your old 8mm,or from vcr),OR digital(via firewire)if you decide to buy a newer camcorder.
BOTH products come with editing/dvd burning software(which you WILL need)and I can say from experience,pinnicle is easy to learn!!
