Question about TruTech TT1620 DVD Recorder

DV Camera problem

It can receive Audio Video from my JVC Everio MG-155 via S-video and AV. I'd much rather use the DV connection. The problem is during playback the screen goes into blackout until paused, then still video is shown. AV is fine. I've tried 2 different IEEE 1394 DV 4-pin cables, with the latest a Monster cable. Both react the same way. Do I have defective TT1620?

How do I get the DVD to record what is on the VHS tape not the TV?

You can record from an external component, such as a camcorder or VCR, connected to any of the Recorder's external inputs.
1. Make sure that the component you want to record from is connected properly to the Recorder. See page 14.

2. Press AUX repeatedly to select the external input to record from.
• AV1: Audio/Video Input mounted on back panel.
• AV2: Audio/Video Input mounted on front panel.
• DV: DV Input mounted on front panel.

page 37 from manual:

If this fails, try to disconnect the tv input cable and connect the vcr cable.

How to hookup

It depends on the TV connectors. The most common is to use either the AV or S-video. In both cases you carry the video signal on one cable (either an RCA plug (yellow) or a S-video). Plug this into the appropriate video in on the TV. Then you can connect the audio. If you use the TVs speakers or a stereo receiver or amplifier, use a 2-plug (or a 3-plug including the RCA video) on each end wire (red and white for the audio) with the white wire carrying the left audio. Connect this cable to the audio outputs labeled Front on the left of the DVD player. If your TV uses PAL signal you will need to set the audio to 2-channel and the Down-Mix to Lo/Ro. Both are accessed from the On-screen menu or the buttons on the remote when a disc is in the player. The Down-mix is in Preferences 2 (Zoom + on the remote) and the Audio Channels is in Speaker Settings (Zoom - on the remote).

If you are using a multichannel (5.1) speaker system, use a couple of extra audio cables and match them to the speakers input ports (center, subwoofer, rear left and right). Set the Speaker settings appropriately. If your receiver can handle digital audio output, you can use that (get a cable) and modify the Preferences 2 section for digital audio.

If your TV doesn't have A/V inputs, you will need a converter. (If you only have RF (coax) in, get a RF modulator.) These are available at many stores.

I hope this helps.

My recorded is linked to a tv with a Freeview box in the tv, but I cannot record Freeview channels as it receives via the annalogue connector. I'm not technical - how do I overcome this?

if you TV has a feature called "Monitor" out, then you can take a "Feed"out, via, The AV, link, the Yellow, Video, Red & White Audio. wiring color to color, and selecting EXTERNAL IN on VCR. If this feature is available, whatever is on screen, is displayed out of that "Monitor Video & Audio Socket"
Get a TV manual and a VCR and have a look it will show you how.

When connecting hdmi out from my panasonic blue-ray player to the dvd input in my yamaha rx-v365 there is not audio or video,why?

There are several video and audio inputs named DVD. For video you have HDMI, component and composite. For audio you have standard analog stereo and digital coaxial spdif input.
You need to configure the receiver to use the correct inputs - that means HDMI and coax. Also you need to connect the BD player via coax spdif cable to the receiver, because rx-v365 doesn't support audio via HDMI. If BD player has only optical output, use DTV/CABL HDMI input and DTv/CABL Optical input on the receiver.

Connecting DVD player to Viewsonic TV

You will use component video cables.  They come in threes and all they require you to do is connect the DVD output with the TV input and match the cable colors on both ends.  They will be red, white, and yellow.  The yellow is the video, and red and white are left and right audio.  If your TV is too old to have stereo audio, only one (red or white) audio cable needs to be connected.  It doesn't matter which.  The yellow cable always needs to be connected.

Another option, but a slightly less common one, is to use a single AV cable to connect the two.  The reason this is less common is because most newer TV's do not have AV input, and newer DVD players do not have AV output.  If it does, however, this is the most simple, and you probably wish to take advantage of it, so you have a connection available when you purchase a newer unit which does not have AV.

Video channel

if your DVD player supports a HDMI cable a single cable is enough for both audio and video channel.

but both your player and TV must support HDMI.
