      I recently got with the trend of having a TV next to my computer for previewing and a vcr for faster transfer to vhs. How can i take advantage of using my vcr and tv for more productivity? How do I connect these to my computer? I heard S-video is good but what about sound?! Grrr im frustrated, was this money not well spent?

      I’m not exactly sure of what you’re asking. First of all the NLE program you’re working with has to support dual-screen viewing. Second, you need the actual ports on your computer to connect to.

      Most newer computers have both a connection for your video monitor and an S-video port. But your software does have to support dual screen.

      In my case, I connect the S-video out to a tv via an adaptor as the tv doesn’t have S-video in. Surely an S-video vcr will connect and your tv can monitor that.

      Just curious, but why would you want to output to an S-video vcr? Most consumers don’t have them, but they more than likely have a dvd player.
