Hi, i have tried to search for advice but not even sure what to search for! I have been asked by my Mother-in-Law to transfer a load of old videos of family, parties weddings etc onto DVD. HELP!!!!

I have managed to get a video recorder (sharp vc m315), it has a SCART output and an aerial output and that is it. I have bought a Elgato eyeTV hybrid (after the apple store staff said that is the product I want), my macbook has the following spec.

Model Identifier: MacBook3,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.2 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 4 MB
Memory: 1 GB
Bus Speed: 800 MHz

When I follow the instructions and connect up the eye tv hybrid using SCART or using RCA leads and SCART adaptor I get a message that says no signal. If i connect an old coaxial cable from the aerial output to the aerial input on the eye tv, i get a very grainy picture and no sound,,,totally unwatchable but there is some form of output.

Any advice as to what I am doing wrong or have I bought the wrong piece of kit for the job?

Many thanks and I apologise if this has been answered already and i didn't find the answer.

macbook, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
