I have a philips 37inch hi-def lcd tv, can I output the video from the tv to a dvd recorder without using the antenna connection. There are scart connectors on tv but I don't think they output video, or do they?

Re: video output from tv to recorder
You can buy Scart connectors that work either solely as an out put, where you can buy some that are solely an input, look for the type of Scrat with a small switch on it, normally means that it is input/output switchable, it may also depend on the tv's scart plug. if the tv says out put or input then you may encounter a problem.

It can be done but without knowing what type of PC you have I won't be able to give u the best way to do it. If your PC has an S-video output, you can simply connect the cable between the two. You will also have to connect audio cables from the mic. output on your PC using a Y type RCA to mic jack that will allow you to plug into the audio inputs of the T.V. hope that helps ya. You can go Hi-Def if your PC supports such outputs.
Check if the cable you are trying to connect is working properly. to check it just use the video wire and connect both ends to audio input and output respectively.If the tv gives out the sound your cable is the problem.Do this and if you do not get sound do contact me and I will solve your problem.And also please do vote my answer below.Thank you.
It depens on what the cable box outputs are, you need to see if it has RF Coaxial jack (use CH3 or CH 4 on the TV), composite video out (Yellow RCA jack) with red and white RCA for audio, component video outputs (Red, Green, and Blue RCA jacks), or HDMI output jacks. HDMI and component video are for HI-DEF if you subscribe to the HI-def package. The cable company should provide you with the owner manual. Please post back with more info.
First thing- why not just use the HDMI instead of standard def cables in the first place?
If the RCA-video (yellow composite cable) is not producing color, 1 of 2 things may be wrong:
1. You accidentally connected the a/v cables [yellow white and red] to [red green and blue] component inputs or vice versa, or..
2. Your TV or DVD player is somehow set to the wrong video format. Check the DVD settings for video output format and video connector type. Format should be NTSC, and connector should be composite and/or s-video for the cables you're using.
If this is only happening when connecting the DVD player through the VCR, then check to make sure the same cables connecting the DVD player to the the VCR are also connected to the TV from the VCR.
BTW- if this is just to record DVDs to a VCR, I'll tell you it's not worth it. If your DVD player has an HDMI port, your picture quality will be so much better than if you're watching a VCR copy of one. Your new HDTV will look worse than an old standard def TV. Worse; I'm not kidding.
I hope some of this helps.
Double check that your componet cables are in the correct colors on both the dvd and tv.
Also what are you using to transmit the sound from the dvd player to the tv. Component cables are video only and not sound.
Connect the DVD to the back of the set on AV2 red white and yellow rca cable . Then to the other end to the DVD red white and yellow. Turn the DVD on and press play. On the tv remote below the number 7 there is an AV button. Press that button and put the tv to AV2. Your DVD picture should be there.
Some CATV hi-def receivers are known to have issues keeping up with the datastream. Symptoms from the picture going solid black to other unpredictable video have been seen. Ask your CATV provider if they can switch your brand to another manufacturer. If your cable box has component video jacks in addition to HDMI, try that too. Some boxes will output RGB perfectly but bomb out with HDMI.
