How do I connect my panasonic vhs 188 camcorder to a dvd recorder?


Hi,

On these old models of VHS camcorder, I recall they have either RCA outputs, or BNC connectors which will require a BNC adaptor (to convert to RCA).

Using a 3RCA lead, connect the camcorder to the video (and audio) inputs of your DVD recorder.

How do I upload my old videos recorded on a VHS C tape from this RCA CC6151 VHS Analog Camcorder to my computer so that I can save them and play them on YouTube or my computer?


You can get videos from this camera, or any analogue video source, into a computer. You just have to play them into an analogue video interface port. These are available as expansion slot cards for a PC, or sometimes as a USB plug-in interface. They will come with drivers and probably software to digitise the video input and record it to a file. Lots of third party video editing software will also be able to accept the input from this kind of port. You don't need any "driver" related to the camera, it is just a video signal source. The connecting leads will be standard RCA signal plugs, like the ones you use to connect to a TV or VHS recorder. You probably already have a lead for this.

Once you have the video on the computer, you will need DVD "Authoring" and burning software, which will usually come as part of the same package. You can download such software for free from the internet- my first stop would be www.download.com.

Need to know what Cassette for this model jvc gr-sxm245


You can use VHS-C (C for compact) or S-VHS-C cassettes. The S-VHS-C is Super-VHS, for better quality recordings, but there isn't that much in it compared to digital. I'm assuming your camera has the S-VHS capability, as the title, otherwise stick to VHS-C.

What kind of firewire cable do I need for this camera (panasonic pv-l858) to be able to 'speak' to my pc?


Firewire is a digital interface and does not work with analog cameras.

LCD video camera to vcr


Hello!
You need an A/V cable (audio-video).
That is a bundle of three RCA male-male cables and they are marked with yellow (video) white (Left audio) and red (Right audio) for easy identifiying.
Connect either to the front or back of the VCR, make sure you have the right input selected.
If you have your TV on and on the video channel you should see the movie from the camera when playing it.
If you can see it then just record.

To record your VHS tapes to a computer you need either a TV-card or a digital videocam with a firewire connection.

If you have a TV card (affordable nowadays) or video capture card you can connect your old videocam directly to your pc using a S-video cable or the analog A/V cable described above. 

Firewire PCI cards that is compatible with any desktop PC are not expensive these days. (if you dont allready have a built-in connection.)
You will also need a "4-6" firewire cable (also called DV-firewire cable)
Connect the old cam to the DV cam using one of the above cables.
Connect the DV cam to the PC using the firewire cable.(You may have to set the DV cam to a "record from external source" -mode)

You will also need software to record the signal to your harddrive, there is a lot of freeware programs you can download on the internet.
If you use windows you can use the "windows movie maker" software. 

Good luck.

Record from a VHS player


This is an easy one. It took me a while to figure it out too. You are on the right track but you need to use the remote control. You will go from record/pause to record and of course you have to use the mini to triple RCA cable that comes with the camera. I can't remember if there is an internal setting in the menu that needs to happen but I don't think so.

Noise block doring playback of D-VHS tapes


* Do not record program in DVHS mode on an S-VHS cassette. Use of S-VHS cassettes will not allow for maximum performance and may result in head clogging. Use only D-VHS cassettes as recommended in the instruction manual on page 27. * Make sure that the DIGITAL 3-DNR lamp is ON when playing back a cassette recorded in D-VHS mode. If not press DIGITAL 3-DNR so that the DIGITAL 3-DNR indicator illuminates. * When block noise appears on the TV screen, clean the video heads with the DFC-2 D-VHS Head Cleaning Cassette (continue up to 3 minutes total). Please refrain from using any other head cleaning cassettes as drum damage may result.
