I appreciated the answer, but I guess I didn't make myself clear. I have the new tv tuner and just don't understand how to hook it up. The s-cable, the coaxial cable, the y cable.....I guess I am saying that I know how to make the DVD's, I just can't figure out how to hook this up.
I had a really old TV tuner attached to my laptop and had no trouble hooking it up, but it was fuzzy and thought I would just get a new one....but this one had too many cables or else I just don't understand the directions.

Re: Teac USB2 TV TUNER Video Capture
First of all, this tuner requires that your laptop support USB 2.0, if your laptop is fairly new (made within the last 2 years) you should have no problem. Make sure you install the software first, and then plug in the USB cable from the tuner to your laptop. Your laptop should see it, and install it automatically. Then plug the s-video cable from your VCR to your TV tuner. Also connect the audio cables (white and red cables) from the VCR to the tuner. That's it.
