    How does one go about getting video from a VCR into Media Center for editing
    and ultimately burning to DVD for posterity?
    I have the VCR connected via A/V cables to the VIDEO 2 INPUT in the front of
    my new VAIO. Windows Movie Maker tells me I have NO video capture device
    when I select. Click to DVD does not offer direct composite video as an
    imput option, only i.Link input. No luck with DV Gate Plus.
    Obviously I have overlooked something. Can someone enlighten me?

    Quite informative, Peter.
    I'll give it a shot.
    InterVideo WinDVD Creator 5 came on my system.
    I'll let you know if I have any insurmountable issues.
    Many thanks.

  4. Doc, this one stumped me for awhile too.
    Launch Click to DVD and click on the Capture Video button.
    By default, you'll be on the iLink tab. Below that should be a button for
    Analog. Click Analog and this will allow you to import from your VCR to VHS.

    Good luck,

    Analog is not an option (no button) in Capture Video, only i.Link. Is there
    some other configuration that should be set up?
