You must connect the audio cables to your recorder too. The S-video just carries the (up to) 500 line picture signal.

Convert sony handycam vision with Hi8 tapes to digital format

If you are trying to use S-Video cable from the Camcorder to the Computer, you need a video capture card capable of accepting S-Video input. Alternately, you may also use a A/V input if already one available in your Computer. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

How can i transfer a trv36 hi8 tape to a dvd


Your camera uses the rca cable to connect too your TV right,
then get a DVD recorder that has an RCA input and select the input channel. Hit record on the DVD recorder then Play on the Camera.

It will record realtime you may aswell enjoy your home video as you record it.

I would STRONGLY advise not to record through a PC using USB... You will drop alot of frames this was as these USB's dont process video fast enough.

I have a Sony Handycam Vision CCD-TRV65 and want to convert my tapes to DVD. What device to I need to do this?

well this is what i do and it is pretty long and not a really good way so first connect one side of your av cable to the output of your tv and the input to your camcorder and with the help of another av cable put the input to a dvd recorder and the output to the input of your tv then insert a (dvd+r/dvd-r) dvd into your DVD Recorder then record the video that is displayed on your tv to the dvd inserted into the dvd recorder then finalize it when it finishes and put it into your computer
So Basically all i use (as the device) is the DVD Recorder which u can find in any electronic store or online or on ebay i use this to record tv any video and videos on my camcorder and movies that i insert onto my usb and play it on my Nbox or Ps3 and then i record/burn the movies onto a dvd-r/dvd+r
Ps. I Say dvd-R is better because you can format it and delete titles and videos from it but u cant do this on a DVD+R

Sony hi8 video cam trying to record onto cd's through Sony dvd pl

Yellow connection for camcorder is your video output, the other one is for audio. If your DVD recorder does not have composite video inputs you will have to get an adapter to attach to your yellow wire and the other end of adapter will go to your recorder. OK?

Putting on computer

Hi8 camera has analog video signal / format and needs to be converted in digital format for PC storage /use.
Best option available is to hook up Hi8 camcorder with DVD recorder and burn movies on DVD. Now you have digital files of movies and can put in PC.
