Output To Tv/vcr

Question

For the life of me I can't figure out how to easily output to the TV/VCR output that I have connected through a special Dell Video card/cable/dongle.

 

I have already formatted and output to DVD, but also need to output to tape. I went back and let me computer plug away for 2 hours to generate an MPG that will then let me output to TV/VCR. Unforutnately I got the BSOD on XP and had to reboot. Now it can't seem to remember that I already generated the video.

 

Am I missing an easy way to output this through this 'extra' video port without having to recompile?

 

Please help.

 

Thanks,

 

Scott

I've never done this, so this might be useless information, but here goes:

 

In videowave, there should be something like "output ot tv/vcr" in the output production section. From there, I do believe that it gives you the option of rendering to a somewhat useless file, where you can select the quality. From there, I'm guessing, you need to use a program that came with your specialized video card to transfer the file out into the VCR.

 

What you can also do, and this seems easier to me, is you can manually: burn a DVD, plug in your DVD player into your VCR's input, play back the DVD, and press the record button on your VCR... kind of "dubbing" the movie onto tape. From there, you can just make copies of the tape.

 

Hope I helped. Have fun.

Yes, but it's a semi hidden feature.

 

Find the video and put it in the Media Selector (find it by choosing the drop down menu at the top of the Media Selector.)

 

Right click on the new video that you made and choose 'Export to TV". Now I've not done this in this program, but in previous versions, the only way you could see that it was being output was to have a TV hooked up to your VCR and watch the picture on the TV.

 

Hope that helps.

Watch, this will be the most newbie question of the month:

 

What's the Media Selector?, and what funtion does it do? I really don't know this. LOL. Can someone please explain? Thanks.

I'd suggest you open the program and see. It's where the videos appear in the program.
