Hauppauge sound and video capture

I've just bought WinTV USB and having trouble capturing the sound with the picture........it will play through the microphone socket fine when watching but never record it. I only have a microphone socket and a head phone socket on the laptop........any suggestions???

Should be travelling from TV through TV tuner (s-video in).  Go here http://www.geocities.com/virtualdub/index.html Download virtualdub, it's the best capturing tool around.

Does your WinTV have s-video input? From what I heard from friends both sound and picture travel in s-video.

To be able to capture both sound and picture, you'll need s-video cable.  It's quite simple to work it really, just connect your tv and your computer with s-video cable, oh and make sure you have s-video output on your TV. And that's it.

Does the s-video travel from the tv, through the tv tuner (s-video in) and into the computer via the usb or do i have to connect from the tv direct to the computer????

Thankyou for all your help, I have now found the recording panel in the audio settings which I never knew was there. I was trying to change the playback settings all the time!!!!!!

You deserve the extra points for dealing with such an idiot!!!!
