Oh ok, I get how everything works now.
One more question then hopefully we can end this: wat is the EXACT name of the double-ended cable that I need for the TV? I tried looking these things up but I don't seem to be getting anywhere. Is it a composite AV cable? Is it called a 6 sided AV cable? Wat??
I'm looking for a good camcorder for video taping video games on a TV. I can't use a capture card because my Nintendo Wii console is in a seperate room from the computer (they r next door), so I ahve no choice but to tape the TV screen.
The first thing I used to record my video games with was my mom's Kodak Easyshare cx7430 <---(I think) 4.0 Mega-pixels. It was a digital camera meant for picture taking, but u can also tape videos on it. U could extend the time it could tape a video by inserting an SD card. But anyway, it is pretty old and beat up now, and I don't think it works anymore. So for my birthday, I asked for a Creative Labs Vado pocket camcorder. I wasn't satisfied with it after the first day cuz it had bad video quality, bad sound quality, and recorded my video game even worse than the old digital camera!
I have videos that were taped on these cameras. Here they r so u can see wat my problem is:

Wow. An old, beat up digital camera not even meant for shooting video obviously kicks the Vado's butt. Wat a shame. As u can tell from comparing both videos, the Kodak one has very clear and great sound quality, and also rarely records scrolling TV bars, whereas the Vado pocket camcorder has atrocious sound quality; almost in-audible at that, and has a major black bar problem.
I know part of the cause is that my TV is not an LCD, plasma, or HD, but can anyone reccomend me the best kind of camcorder to fit my purposes of filming games off the TV, and real life footage as well. I need a camcorder that can do both of those things.
