    I have a gateway with xp media center. I pluged a vcr into the tv tuner
    expecting it to play. When it starts I have video for about 1 second, then
    only the audio continues and I have a black screen. Any ideas? my setting
    wrong?

    Probably Macrovision is kicking in...but that's just a guess.

    Got any homemade videos you can try in the VCR? (Nothing from TV)

  3. This may be due to Macrovision protection of copyrighted material which
    prevents you from routing through your encoder, and possibly making copies.
    Test it by playing a video you recorded of regular TV, unless that is what
    you are having trouble with, in which case, nevermind.
