Hey,
I was just wondering, i have a portable USB HDTV reciever, the only input to which is coaxial. Coincidently, the only output of my VCR is Coaxial.

I was wondering if this 'unlikely occurance' (Im joking by the way, sorry im in a good mood, that im hoping someone could make better :D:D) meant that it would be possible to play my videos and cr$%p through my computer, rather than the cr$%y 12" 1980s computer monitor which i use as a tv.

I am sorry, i cant give the exact statistics or model of the card, however i believe it was made by gadget geek, and the software that came with it was blaze HDTV or something of the type

Thanks for any suggestions that you may be able to provide :P

coax is normally broadcast or over the air and one devices output can usually be input to the next. Usually they give a choice of channel 3 or 4 so they both need to be on the same channel.

Thanks, that mostly made sense.
How would you set them both to the same channel however?
Blaze does not seem to have normal TV channels, you can however select them from a list.
Would i just have to scan for channels with the VCR plugged in?
That would be all good, except i would not recieve digital as the VCR seems to block the signal.

Assuming what you want is to play your tapes from the vcr.
Take the output from the vcr to the input of your usb device then start play on vcr and run a scan on your usb tuner and pray.
I have no confidence in this working at all, as it's a digital device and the incoming signal is anolouge.
If this fails as I expect it to, you have the option of buying a pci or usb digital, anolouge or combination tv tuner.
Personally I would be dumping the old vcr (unless it's a beta) and getting one with modern input/output connections, they are almost at giveaway prices now.

Yeah, thanks for your help.
Naa, the VCR isn't really much of a problem, i mainly want componant input to my PC, im going to get a decent TV tuner card.. Probably cheaper than what i payed for this Massively unportable USB crap.
Thankyou very much,
