Thanks for the answer. I will give it try. Do I need to turn down the computer volume as well as the stereo (I use Nero Wave Editor)? Also my stereo has a 1/4" jack while my computer line-in is, of course, a mini. Does anyone know if there is there a cable that can connect these? I have an adapter if, not so no big deal.
Last question, in case anyone thinks this will work: Amplifier video/md out to vcr audio in, and then vcr audio out to computer. I might try this just to see.
