There IS a switch left of center on the DSR-11 that allows for selecting DV, S-Video or Video, and so I would suspect that a home video might be played into the set for recording or passthrough to your software/computer.
However, it’s possible an old commercial VHS tape might not cooperate with the DSR-11. I’m sure you’re NOT attempting to play a VHS videotape IN the DSR-11, but just in case you are, that won’t work.
However, if you’re seeing the video in the capture window, I suspect something is awry with your settings but I couldn’t tell you what THAT might be. Something somewhere isn’t talking with the rest of your system. Could it be that switch I mentioned?
