How do I get my old camcorder video onto my pc?

So,
my old camcorder has s-video and AV out.

The HDPVR 2 I'm using has HDMI and YPbPr in like this http://www.hauppauge.com/pics/webstore/webstore_av-cable_colossus%2Bhdpvr2.jpg

What way should I use to get video on the tape inside my camcorder to my pc? Thanks

    They make a cable just for you.

    The component cable will not work, but that cable should get the job done for you.

    I sure with the HDPVR2 worked with media center.
  2. Oh sweet, i've never seen that one before.

    Thanks for the help
  3. No problem.
  4. Ok so i'm going to follow up on this.
    The cable arrived and it works but there is one problem. The video is tinted blue.
    When I connect the camcorder to the TV the video is fine so I don't think the camcorder is the problem.
    But when i remove the RCA wires the video is black and white only.

    Anybody know what the problem could be? Sound works perfectly
  5. Check the software to see if it has a setting to go from Component to Composite/Svideo.

    Wow, thanks a lot.

    I tried that before but forgot to refresh so it was black but now it's perfect.

    Thanks again :D!

    Setting PAL on NTSC or NTSC on PAL equipment can cause similar issues as well.
