Has anyone out there in net land been successfull in recording your monitor screen display on a VCR? I have home movie tapes of the kiddies birthdays and christmas etc. that I would like to make an intro screen using the Koala pad. If you have done this 
et me know if there is any trick to it, (all I get is screen full of snow).

Thanks in advance,

When I tried connecting a standard DIN cable from VCR to 64, I
didn't have much of a problem, although the picture did come out
a bit fuzzy.  I'd suggest some sort of an amplifier to give the
VCR a stronger signal.
