Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D200US Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I cannot figure out what cord I need to do this. I have a JVC GR-DVL 120 DIGITAL VIDEO CAMCORDER, I want to use my VCR to play tapes and then run the wires from the VHS (STANDARD INPUT/OUTPUT and S-video jacks). THe camcorder has AV and S -Video. I am thinking if I get an S-Video cable, I can run that between the VCR and the Camcorder, then hook the camcorder to my pc. Will this work? I dont want to spend the cash on an S-Video cable unless I think it will work. Any suggestions? Also is there specific S-Video cables, I read somewhere that I need the Sony . . . I am using Windows Movie Maker to capture the input. Thank You

No you cannot run video through your camera to PC After looking over the manual to your JVC GR-DVL120U camcorder, there is no way for your camera to accept an incoming signal from a audio/video source and then send the signal out to another recorder, PC or otherwise. In order for that to work you would need to have a audio/video "in" which does not exist on your model, only a composite video, left/right and S-Video "out". Your best bet is to purchase a video capture card for $50 and install it into your computer. Or you can purchase $98+ stand alone DVD recorder. Then you simply run a video and left/right audio cable to it and record. If you need help on selecting/purchasing a video capture card and how to install it, let me know. Unfortunately, there is not a cheap way to do this. Unless you would like to send the VHS to me and I will be happy to create a DVD for you for $25 plus shipping. I will need about 2 weeks for turn around time. Hope this helps. Take Care,

You can't with what you've got I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but in order to play tapes in a vcr and run them through a digital camcorder for output to a computer, the camcorder must have s-video or av inputs. Your camera only has s-video or av outputs, used for sending from the camera to the vcr or tv. Also, some cameras have the inputs but don't support analog to digital pass-through (which is what you are describing). With these cameras you input from the vcr and record it to the tape in the camera, and then output it to the computer. Without the inputs, you can't do either one.
