    You sure you got a stereo audio cable coming from your sound card to the audio inputs on the VCR?

    The problem has to be the VCR, since you know the video and sound are passed through it ok. Perhaps its set to record from a different input? Have you verified if the VCR can record from other sources or not? Tried a different tape?

    Yeah, you probably have to change the input (you know, input 1, video 1, video 2, whatever), or like my vcr, theres just a switch between AV and CATV or some shit.
