Xpert DVD Maker Problems Capturing Video

I purchased the xpert DVD Maker product, and installed the PCI card in my computer no problem.  The drivers are also installed, and seem to be working properly.  My computer more than meets all the system requirements.  Yet for some reason, i can't get the silly thing to work.

I can plug in my video camera, (Handycam 8) using my special cable (a/v/s on one end, a/v on other) and I can capture video.

I can use the same cable and plug to my kids TV/VCR and not capture anything.

Using a normal stereo a/v cable, I plug to a much newer tv and cannot capture anything.

I've tried changing settings in both Roxio and PVR Plus and I cannot capture from a VCR.  Please help!

Are the formats the same on both ends? (NTSC, PAL)
Are you sure the kids' TV/VCR and newer TV are outputting a signal from the connector you've plugged into?

I've tried both NTSC and PAL in terms of capture settings.  I am not sure if the output is working or not - I would assume it would but I don't really know of a good way to test it...any suggestions?

Anything that accepts the video plug as an input, including your HandyCam.
