  1. No. The Easy VHS to DVD for Mac has a video-capture device that plugs into your Mac's USB port (no cable needed). It also includes a cable with a mini-USB plug at one end and RCA/S-video connectors at the other. The mini-USB plug attaches to the video capture device and you connect standard a-v cables at the other end of the cable.


    I'm sensing that you expect to be able to record analog video directly into your Mac via a cable only. That can't happen. You need an analog-to-digital converter between the analog video player and your Mac. Roxio's Easy VHS to DVD for Mac is one such device.


    I think I understand now. Thank you.

  2. I wasn't aware that Toast 10 came with this application. Was it some kind of bundle? In any case the Easy VHS to DVD for Mac is a combination of a hardware USB device and the software application. If you have the USB device then you just connect RCA audio and video cables to it (or alternatively an S-video cable in place of the yellow composite video cable).


    Thanks. I was looking for something more along the lines of RCA-to-USB type of cable adapter. Is this something I would need?



  3. I just discovered my Titanium Toast 10 package came with this program and I'm pretty psyched because I was planning on getting an Elgato. Now, I'm just wondering what would be the best cable to use if I want to convert VHS videos onto my computer. I own a Macbook Pro, either 2.66GHz or 2.8GHz (Can't remember off-hand. Not on that computer) with 4GBRAM.
