I am one of your new users - courtesy of free version via PCPlus magazine - very impressed so far.

However, guides do not show how to link up my VHS player although there appears to be a plugin for this which I have tried tgo activate - help!

Not shure if i follow you,,

Do you want to record from it?
if so, I think that wil work if you have a tv-card with hardware mpeg (or something like that) Software cards are no longer supported.

Just go to setup and in to your tv-card,,look around and you wil find it.
Then choose composite/s-video as source.

btw: welcome to the mediaportal world :) best world there is.

    Yep, basically add a new channel and flick over to the external tab and it has from stb option which allows you to select svideo or composite input. Then assign the channel to hardware analogue card and you ready to go. If that doesnt work then you can also use the antenna rf passthrough and autotune it in as a real channel.
