Vhs To Tv To Computer

Question

I purchased the VHS to DVD3 so that I could record some old family VHS tapes to DVDs as Christmas gifts. I was not too successful with that idea since this is New Year's Eve and I haven't got this whole thing figured out yet. Apparently, my VHS player is so old, it does not have a place to plug an S-video cable into (at least not that I can find). So, am I screwed? Or, can I play the VHS tape onto the TV, plug the S-video cable into the TV and into the computer using the plug thingy provided in the Roxio VHS to DVD3 program, and record the VHS tape like that? I think I recall my husband hooking up my old laptop directly to the TV with an S-video cable, so the TV must have the place to plug one into. As you can tell, I know NOTHING about electronics, computers, recording, etc. etc. etc.

 

Is there hope/help for me?
