I need some suggestions on how I can get my Hi8mm tapes from tape to my computer. The camcorder I have is a Sony CCD-TRV11 HandiCam.
The output connectors are only the Vid out and audio out (Single audio connect). Is there a Video Capture device that I can use for this type of output? The only ones I have seen are the ones that have Audio L and Audio R. (Standard RCA connectors). How the heck can I get the video from the tape to the computer?!
I’m really stumped please any help that you can offer would be greatly apprecieated!

😀 This is an analog camcorder..In order to "capture" video to your computer , you must use an analog capture device IE: something from ADS..that is something like a DVD EXPRESS…etc….
There are other company’s that offer analog capture devices…
I own and use an ADS DVD EXPRESS myself for capturing various analog devices such as a VHS recorder..
It works great for what it does..
Do NOT expect super quality, but it is acceptable.. 🙂

Find someone with an old Sony Digital 8 camcorder, it will probably be able to digitize you analog Hi8 stuff. My DSR TRV315 will do the trick, and I’m sure many other similar models may too.
