Question about Sony Handycam CCD-TRV87 Camcorder
To copy the Hi8 tapes you need to connect the camcorder to either a computer or to a recorder.
The easiest way is using an audio/video cable connected to the jack plug on the Sony Hi8 camcorder. The alternative is using the firewire port and a firewire cable.
In both cases you do not need to install software or to do settings. The camcorder output will be sent analog to the yellow video cable or to the firewire cable. If you use a recorder all you have to do is selecting input channel and start recording.
The AV cable you need (most Hi8 do not have firewire) should be like the one in this link. Double check before purchasing.
