Hook your VCR to the TV card, make sure it shows some kind of live
(moving) image on the screen. Install CU-Doodle

Test it. It should definitely work. You can now happily purchase a
camcorder and hook it to your TV card instead of the VCR.

(Read the docs, CUDOODLE.TXT in the zip file for detailed explanation on
how and why it will work.)
