    I wanna hook up my computer to my VCR so I can record some movies onto VHS. I have a GeForce 4 MX 420 and the wire to the VCR is S-Video. But my question is, what about the sound??? When I watch a movie with the TV-Out there is no sound so I use my computers speakers to hear the movie, if I'm recording how will I get the sound recorded also????

    Video Card = Video
    Sound Card = Sound

    buy an adapter cable to connect the audio "out" from your sound card to the audio "in" on your VCR.
    the cable will have a stereo mini phono jack on one end and 2 RCA jacks on the other.
    should cost less than $10

    Thanx harrycary, now I know exactly what I need! Only problem is, after 30 min. of searching, I can't find a freaking cable like that on the internet! Know where I can buy one online?

    EDIT: Wait, no.... would This One from Circuit City work?

    Or get an RF modulator at Radio Shack. It converts RCA to RF.
