  1. If you connect with COAXIAL from the VCR to the computer. You should be able to set it on channel 3 or 4 depending in the VCR and setup a manual recording in media center.

    The alternative to that would be third party software or even Hauppauge's own WinTV software to record from the other inputs on the card.

    Wow this takes me back...but this should help...

    Get a cheap ATI x850 PRO off e-bay. They came in AGP and PCI models. These had VIVO with S-Video AND coax in/out and worked great as an inexpensive capture card for old VHS VCR tapes.

    Remember to clean the heads before you play the tape for capture. And a battery backup/UPS for both the VCR and PC is a good idea.
