    I have a Sony 'Combo' tv/video recorder that I'm trying to connect to my pc so I can capture some video.
    The tv has a Euro AV connector at the back and 2 video/audio input jacks at the front and my graphics card has vivo capability with either S-video or composite.
    Could someone tell me how I would connect these up or if it will work at all? I've tried connecting up via the composite at the front of the tv and through a scart to composite at the back but with no joy?
    Is it even going to be possible to do this with the tv I have?

    Any help appreciated.

    Jim.

    I think you are going to be out of luck. AFAIK the sockets on combined TV/VCR units are normally all inputs and will therefore not send video to a PC etc.
    You may well find the exception to the above for audio so the TV can be watch with audio via a HiFi/AV amp.
