Question about JVC GR-SXM260U Camcorder

1 Answer

Connect old camcorder to new PC

I have a JVC Camcorder that is SVHS-C. The model number is GR-SXM260U. I want to hook it up to my PC with Windows Vista. What kind of cabledo I need? My computer has an 1394 port, but as far as I can tell, mycamcorder only has an S-video port, two RCA plugs for Audio and Videoand the DC in. There is also a section of the circuit board that opensup and appears like it might allow for something to plug into it. Help?

JVC has the support page for the GR-SXM260U here: http://support.jvc.com/consumer/product.jsp?modelId=MODL027120&pathId=25&page=3&archive=true. This camcorder can be connected to a TV with the S-video connection (JVC recommends their YTU94146A S-Video cable) or two RCA connections. If you use an RCA composite cable, you use only one of the two audio connections (white) and the yellow video cable.

To connect this camcorder to a computer, you need a USB video capture device and some type of video capture software. Here are two examples: https://www.amazon.com/Diamond-Multimedia-VC500-Video-Capture/dp/B001FAE8MA and https://www.amazon.com/ION-Analog-Digital-Converter-Composite/dp/B002MT7JFQ .

I hope this helps.

its true that normally you don't need to download the driver, however when it does pop up, i'd say go here http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=87522 and just download the zip file for the drivers.

Hi I am Vortash according to the manual for this unit available on http://www.safemanuals.com the unit is quite capable of downloading to a computer but yes it does require the correct software to do so .. you may find this is available from JVC support as a download .. it says that you can download to a usb terminal or a Rs socket with a compatible retail software .. hope this helps Regards Vortash

This is a known fault, JVC recalled a lot of these camcorders in 2007. They were manufactured with defective components. Contact JVC customer Services and demand a replacement.

SLOW DOWN PLAYBACK MODE


You cannot play SVHS tapes on a standard VHS machine. Your solution is to either:
1. Buy an SVHS Home unit (not a great idea)
2. Use regular VHSC tapes in your camcorder (these will playback fine in your existing home unit).
3. Hook your camcorder directly into your TV and use the camera as a playback device.
