Question about Televison & Video
DVD recorder/player DS8668A
Panasonic TX-115M1TP TV
Want to transfer from VHS tape on to DVD
Are scart leads enough or must go through TV with S lead ?
VHS tape plays in Video and appears on TV but cannot record/transfer on to DVD in DVD player/recorder
OK, I think I see the problem there.
The aerial lead from the DVDR to TV should be removed.
You should have it setup the same as the other Freeview - VCR - TV
Main aerial to Freeview input.
Loop aerial from freeview output to DVDR areial input (all this does is allow you to watch freeview, or standard both out of the DVDR)
Scart from Freeview to DVDR input
Scart from DVDR output to TV
Set DVDR to AV input mode.
Set TV to AV (whatever number you need for that..you now won't get anything on screen unless you have the right input selected)
If you can now see the Freeview picture on the TV and change the channels with the Freeview remote then you should be set for recording.
Having the aerial and a scart lead both going to the TV is not needed.

hook the video output from vcr to dvd input at rear, then hook output from dvd to tv input. note; you can not record protected vcr movies you can only record tv shows from sattelite to vcr or dvd recorder. its best to record straight from sattelite to dvd recorder for picture clarity.

SOURCE: VHS to Easy capture to computer
The plugs you speak of are called RCA plugs, (Male side has an outside ring with "slots" around the edge, and a pin in the center. Female side has a short round "riser" with a hole in it). You need just standard Audio/Video hookup cables, available at any electronics store.. Walmart/Target/Kmart has them in the TV section. They get plugged into the Audio (Red & White) OUT of the VCR, into the Audio IN (Red & White) of the Easy Capture. The Yellow lead is for Video In/Out between the VCR and Easy Capture. The black is probably the S-Video connector, (round, has very small square hole, surronded by 4, 5, or 7 tiny pin holes) that can be also used to connect video/audio between VCR(if so equipped) and Easy Capture. Get a set of audio/video dubbing cables (abt $10 usually), connect Red to Red, White to White, Yellow to Yellow. Plug the Easy Capture USB cable into your computer (most likely), start the capture program. Start your vcr, hit Play. You should see your vcr tape playing on the computer screen.

Testimonial: "Very comprehensive, just want to make sure I don't need the black cable connection"
I am a bit confused? A vcr will only need the aerial to pick up signals for TV signals broadcast by a transmitter. As long as the vcr has two scart sockets you can connect your TV to AV1 and the sat box to AV2 and it should record the sat picture and you can watch it by switching your TV to the AV channel. Of course the video will only be any good to record things from sat if your out or in bed. Because you can't watch one channel, record another with the vcr.
I suggest you have a word with your sat company about the record a program service or provide you with a multi room service so you can record channels whilst viewing others.
