Sony VO 9800 Chroma Output

Connecting a 7-pin to 4-pin Comprehensive s-video cable to the dub connector on the back of a Sony VO 9800 I do not get a chroma signal out to the 4-pin s-video device. I get a great black & white image but no color.

I have had the cable checked and it is wired properly. The problem seems to be in the y/c card of the deck.

The composite out on the deck works as it should.

Any ideas on a solution to get the color signal working?

There is a converter called the YCP-688 that did exactly this-- converted the Y/C 688 signal coming out of the Umatic deck to a Y/C 358 signal that any modern device with a s-video port (VCR, edit deck, capture card) could accept.
The company went out of business in 2007 , don't know if they are still for sale-- here's a link to it-

I believe the dub connector you are speaking of puts out a signal called Y/C 688. This is a different signal format than used by standard S-video, which is also called Y/C 358. The numbers after the Y/C indicate the carrier frequency of the color signal, one is 6.88 Mhz, the other is NTSC standard 3.58 Mhz. I belive that is why you are not seeing the color information.

    The two signals are not compatible and I do not know of any "converter" to make them work.

I want to connect my sony DCR-TRV260 handycam to my computer...what cables do I need?


Depending on what type of connector your computer has, you will need to get a firewire cable (also known as IEEE-1394a cable). The connector on your camcorder is a 4-pin connector. You will either have that same looking connector on your computer (some laptops now have the 4-pin connector) or a 6-pin connector (D shaped). 884068d.jpg This picture is of a 4-pin (right side of pic) to 6-pin (left side of pic) cable. These are available at many electronic stores and online. To be safe, have your camcorder powered off when connecting to the computer. Once you have connected the cables, turn your camcorder on and insert the tape that you would like to transfer. Your computer should recognize it and install the appropriate driver. Most computers have some sort of free video editing program (like Windows Movie Maker). Depending on the software, you may have the option to import the entire video tape or only parts.

Hope this has helped you.

Connecting my TV and DVD player to a digital set top box


There are 4 different types of cables and they have to do with the quality and resolution of what they carry.
1) Coaxial or an RCA to RCA, 'Yellow colored connectors' - Composite video - Lowest quality of video you can get. Mostly what people hook up from their VCR's. '240 to 480 lines of interlaced resolution.

2) S-VHS cable - 4 pins - Carry Chroma 'Color' over the one set of two pins and Luminance 'B&W' signal over the other 2 pins. This is a higher resolution than the Composite video cable - 480 to 512 'still interlaced resolution' or ' i ' .

3) Component cables - RCA ends but there are 3 of them. Red colored 'for the Red video signal', Green colored connector 'for the Green video signal with Vertical sync laid on top of it,' and then Blue colored 'for the 'yep you guessed it' the Blue video signal with the horizontal carrier laid on top of the signal'.
This is the higher resolution of 720 ' i ' interlaced or even when selected by your piece of output equipment up to 1080p 'Progressive' resolution if your equipment can output this highest resolution.

4) HDMI - is a cable that not only carries the component but does it digitally along with audio and an ID bit that the Transmitting equipment 'STB' in this case should communicate with your 32" LCD HD-TV so that it will put out the maximum signal 'probably 1080P' that your TV will handle.
I would try to obtain an HDMI cable and use this to connect your STB to your LCD for the best connection between your two units.
Blessings,

Monitor not working with converter


You have to make sure the DVI output of your computer supports analog video.

Check online for a DVI pinout. You will see the group of 4 or so pins to one side of the connector provide analog VGA. If your Video card (or cable) doesn't utilize those pins, then your monitor isn't going to be supplied the signal it needs.

No display on tv


"please email me for further help if this dosn't help before you mark not helpful vicer@comcast.net"

first try updating your drivers at www.ati.com, I have to ask you to double check the connector your using to goto the tv, if your using a S-video cable check the port on the card your connecting to, if there are more then 4 pin holes in the connector you need a pigtail to connect to your tv, many video cards use a cable that is sold seperatly to connect to a tv, connector look like a s-video connector and a s-video cable will plug into it, but instead of 4 pin holes it has 7, 9, or 12 connectors depending on the card, and the type of output the cable has. most are 9 pin with composit, s-video, and componite connectors on them.
