A. Your Camera works as a video bridge ? Or do You record in between (I do)
Then You can find out if Audio comes this far.
B. Can it be so that it's only one canal that came's trough from VHS-VCR and that second recording failed on this side ?
I think I would try to break down the problem step by step to find out where Audio goes missing.
BTW I use two methods
• to miniDV tape (no video trough on my Camera - SONY TRV-900E) - Works nearly always
• via Canopus ADVC-300 - I love it especially when VHS is 8hours long (LP-mode)

But Klaus1 if the material is on same VHS tape and analog out then the matter of different Cameras on the tape can not do any difference as signal now is analog.
So why one comes trough and not the other - to me is more in the region of bad connections (on analog side).
Still I would take it step-vice to find out where it disappears.

I tried taking it step by step and just transfering the footage from VCR to camcorder with a mini DV tape and ran into the same problem with the audio. The Camcorder 2 audio will not transfer from the VHS tape to the camcorder. I have done this many times with other bits of footage and never ran into this problem. However, I have never transfered footage from a VHS that had two camcorders AV on it. It puzzles me that you can hear both audios on the VHS Tape but only one when you try and transfer it to mini DV tape or when I use my camcorder as a bridge and bring it straight into imovie.
Any other ideas?
