Thanks, Jim; I checked the driver for the USB device and it shows as up-to-date. I've got the device connected to the VCR (S-video to S-video out port plus red/white audio cables in the audio-out ports), but I still get a "No signal" message on the Media Import screen. True when the VCR is powered up and no change once I press "Play". I don't know why I'm so dense about this...don't have this problem in other areas of my life!!
