      Is there anyway to capture video from my TV? My friend was recently interviewed on the news, I want to import this footage into my camcorder so we can use it in a short film.

      Thanks for your help

      I can get the footage to play on the video camera now but I can’t record it. I am assuming this is something to do with my camcorder to prevent piracy.

      can’t help unless we know how you got from the TV into the camcorder. However, assuming you mean you recorded onto a TV with internal hard drive recorder, and then went out to the camcorder using composite video – I’d bet your guess is spot on – however you say you can get it to play but not record? You mean you can see it on the camcorder screen but the record button won’t work? This suggests a copy protect flag of some kind – but could easily just be that (if you were in the UK) your camcorder will not record from it’s line input. Frequently a feature disabled in the UK. We need more info.
