I got that idea from their minimum requirement list!

 

I see nothing about camcorder in the requirements for tivo:

 

TiVo® requires a TiVo® Series2™, Series3™, TiVo® HD DVR or other TiVoToGo™ compatible DVR connected to your home network, and TiVo Desktop. Does not work with DirecTV® provided TiVo DVRs. See www.tivo.com for more information.

I was under the impression that tivo was a requirement for the use of the software? Why do they have this in the minimum requirements?

 

My wife wants to burn portions of video from her camcorder to dvd's to play on our television. Is this software what I am looking for?

 

can anyone here help me?

It will do what you want and more.

 

About the listed minimum computer specs.... they are well below what is really needed for video capture and editing (probably OK for slide shows and audio).

 

Post your computer information and we'll take a guess on how it will run on your computer. If you have a laptop older than three or four years or if it is a portable/portable and not a desktop replacement it may be a problem.

I have a desktop with windows XP but doesn't have a dvd, but our laptop does have a dvd. So a laptop is not advisable? If not, why not?

As Sknis said, 3 - 4 year old (or older) laptops are likely to be a problem because they will probably fall short of the minimum requirements.

All software has a learning curve but in my opinion, it doesn't take most folks long to figure it out. There are tutorials to help you as well as this wonderful forum.

Well my laptop is newer than my desktop by about 3 years. A Dell Latitude D810 Windows XP with a Pentium 1.73GHz 795 MHz 1 GB Ram, Sony DVD+RW DWG58A. I think it is an 05 model. Is this enough information?

That will burn data CDs and DVDs, along with music CDs and DVDs, but it will be as slow as molasses when doing any video work, if it does it at all.

Then could you recommend what I would need for us to do what we want to do? Any help is appreciated!

There's not a lot you can do with a laptop - the best way is if you can upgrade the desktop (it's not hard to do and all you need is a pozidriv screwdriver

 

CPU 2 GHz or better

2 GB RAM

a reasonable sized hard drive (250 GB or better)

a decent mid range graphics card

and (natch) a DVD-RW drive

Thanks, Is this the software I need to do what I want to do, or would you recommend something else that would accomplish my task? I'm not looking for anything professional by any means, just something to be able to transfer edited camcorder video to DVD's and view them on a television.

There are many companies making programs similar to this one but for a worried beginner, you might want to try the built in or free Windows Movie Maker program. Look here (link) and here. To burn the movie to a DVD, you will need an add on; read this.

 

If you have a digital camcorder with a Firewire port, you can capture directly to your hard drive. If the camera is analog, then you will need an analog to digital converter. There are many USB devices that will work.

 

I assume that you have XP and not Vista.
