North East Wimmera district of Victoria.
Follow up to my post below.
My $13 commitment arrived, USB device, RCA plugs, mini CD to load program, and a readable instruction sheet.
Problem is it gives me sound to the computer, but no picture - sort of a necessary component of the project. The image from the computer camera shows up, but no amount of fiddling gets the video image.
The instructions said to check the video player output. Right. Connect back to the TV , intermittent pictures only. Ran a cleaner, sorted that problem.
Hooked back to the computer, but still no picture.
Like I said, if my 'cheapie' does not work, I'll get onto Amazon and spend a little more!
Edit - do I have a problem that Australian video format is different to US?? Someone mentioned that something bought through Amazon may not be compatible with Aust. system. Long time back - but I think Aust works on PAL.
