Method to get VHS tapes onto my computer?

My VCR is connected to my HT setup in a different room and I really don't feel like taking it out of the system to put it in here for uploaded my old VHS family tapes to my computer. Is there some sort of device that anyone knows of that is like a vcr, but just used for uploading to a PC? I don't really just want to go out and buy a cheap VCR for doing this. I have an external TVTuner that has all the inputs I need, I just need something to connect to it. Any ideas?

If you have a Mini DV video camera it may have this feature. I'm almost sure my Sony does.
