Re: Want to view my canon mvx330i camcorder through my tv
Open the front plastic cover to the right of the lens and expose the ports. The yellow one is the AV port. Press the MENU button on the left side and use the rocker switch above to display AV-PHONES, select AV, and press the MENU button to set it and close the menu. Turn both the camcorder and TV OFF.
Connect the camcorder AV port to the TV RGB inputs (VIDEO + AUDIO L + AUDIO R) with the cable that came with the camcorder. It has a mini stereo plug at one end and three RCA plugs at the other.
Switch everything on, press PLAY on the camcorder (don't forget to make sure the cassette is wound back to the start). sit back and enjoy.

Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
what method are you using to connect the devices? if you are using av cables - scart, or av to av, it could be a cable problem, try switching them.
only other thing is it could be that the tv is not set to av correctly, or the camcorder is not set up to feed av correctly.
You will have to use AV cables and an adapter. The adapter looks like a scart cable connector, it is that shape , and it has 3 inputs
one red one white and one yellow. It should fit in a spare scart socket on the tv and the cables should attach to the camcorder.
Just program the video to a particular channel, you may have to consult your owners documentation to discover how this is done. Go to the channel, insert the tape and press play.
For a camera of the kind you have, you need an analogue video input card in the computer to accept the video input, and you need to play the video into the computer while the computer records it. The PC will not recognise the camera as such, using these AV connections, it will only see a video signal. You don't have to install anything relating to the camera on the computer, but you need software running on the computer that understands the video input card and can take the analogue input and store it in a file. Yes, I know the computer stores the videos on digital tape, but the connectors you are talking about are analogue, and so is the signal at that point.
I am not sure that your computer actually has a video input interface (unless you have installed one?). Sometimes display cards have s-video sockets that are actually output sockets. In any case, video input interface cards generally come with the software required to capture input- it won't be specific to the camera.
You will need to borrow or buy a DVD-Recorder, either way it's best to follow the manuals instructions on how to connect your camcorder (external device) to the DVD Recorder for Recording to DVD. Most camcorders come with a set of AV (audio/video) Cables for this purpose. On your camcorder you will find a little rubber door that houses the terminals to connect your cables to. Depending on how old your camcorder is you will find a Yellow (video) and a White (audio) and on the newer ones that have stereo capabilities...you will have a Red (audio), all these connections are video and audio Out-Inputs and should be connected to the Video and Audio "In" terminals on the back of the DVD Recorder. Now make sure your battery is fully charged (It's best here to use an AC Adapter for your power supply instead of your battery, which also usually comes with your camcorder if bought new.) and that your VCR-C tape is loaded and completely re-wound. Now if you want to watch this on your TV while you are recording to DVD...you'll need another set of AV Cables that come with a new DVD-Recorder, and hook these cables on the Out-terminals on the back of the DVD- Recorder and the other end of the cables to your TV's Video/Audio-IN terminals on the back of the set. Finally...Set your camcorder switch for Playback, turn on the DVD Recorder, And turn on your TV. Now you can go ahead and record all your VCR-C tapes to DVD! Any other questions?

you would take the black rca plug opposite end of the red white and yellow plug. plug it into the side of the camcorder it should say a/v out and have a hole to plug it in then take the red white and yellow plugs and plug them into a tv and it should say a/v in then switch the tv to audio video 1 or 2 and it should work
Some of those av cords are wired for use on Apple computers and the leads into the mini jack are either reversed or they don't line up properly. The best way to get it fixed is to bring the camera into Radio Shack and test the correct cable that you need. You can order one from Canon usa website as well.
To get the USB connection to work requires software to run it. Pinnacle Studio works well with that.
Any of the following 3 will work.
S-Video ? Composite (Video) ? Audio (RCA)
Information taken from: http://www4.shopping.com/xPF-Sony-CCD-TR748
images of S-Video cable and Composite/RCA cables listed below.
To connect your camcorder to a TV (or VCR), you'll need audio/video cables. These need to be run from the VIDEO and AUDIO jacks on the camcorder to the VIDEO and AUDIO inputs on the TV (or VCR).
Once cabling is completed, follow either of these scenarios:
When connecting the camcorder directly to the TV, turn on the TV and tune it to the video input channel by pressing the INPUT button on your remote control.
# When connecting the camcorder to a VCR that is already connected to a TV: Turn on the VCR and place it in the Line or Camera mode.
# Operate the TV as you normally do to see the signal coming from the VCR.
Select camcorders have an S-VIDEO jack, which offers higher video quality. Provided your TV or VCR has an S-VIDEO input jack, connect the camcorder to the TV or VCR using an S-VIDEO cable. Since the S-VIDEO cable only transfers video, you will also need to use an audio cable. Select the S-VIDEO input on your TV or VCR to view the signal coming from the camcorder.
