Output video from Radeon 9600XT to VCR

Hello,

I'd like to output video from my Sapphire Radeon 9600XT to my VCR. I've
connected the input of my VCR to my video card using a standard RCA cable
with an S-Video adapter connected at one end. Then I plugged that end into
the only available plug I could find on the back of my videocard. I'm
assuming that it's an output. I already have the output of my VCR connected
to the input of my capture card. Switching to the proper channel on the VCR
I ought to be able to see what's coming through my computer (in theory). So
I thought, but I get nothing. I've tried recording about a minutes worth of
video, but nothing was recorded.

What might I be doing wrong?

Thanks,

Jeff

If youre trying to record a DVD dont forget that macrovision will stop you
getting a picture through
a VCR - first link your card directly to the TV and
and get a picture (no Macro involved) then you know it works and you can
test the VCR connection afterwards.

Nope, I'm not trying to record to DVD right now. Perhaps later. I don't
have a TV that I can connect to my computer. Besides, why would macrovision
be a problem when all I want to capture is a home video to my hard drive?

Thanks,

Jeff

go into display advanced properties - displays - make sure the TV option is
switched on.
that should do it but sometimes I find the system needs an extra 'nudge' -
go to the overlay
tab and clone mode options - select theatre mode and apply.
