    You wanna get either a video card with built in TV card, or a seperate TV card. This will enable you to record from Videorecorder/TV and play-back to the TV/Video recorder.
    There are lots out there, just do a google search for 'TV Card'

    I got myself one of these last week. Haven't had time to get all the cables sorted but I think I am going to enjoy using it.

    I got mine for A$92. (US$60)

    silky, i see you have a gf4 mx440 (not fx). does the term VIVO sound familiar? if your video card has it (video-in, video-out), then you have all the hardware to capture video. you'd just need a male-male rca cable for video, a y-splitter for audio, and a capture program.

    if it's not vivo, then you'll need to invest in a seperate capture card.
