Re: cant record from security camera on rd2780
There are several possible reasons for it:
1. Check for a loose or false contact in the connector jack of the media player. Unplug and plug it again, or rotate it.
2. The Video/Audio cable is defective. Such media players when were brand new, there were 2 sets of cables in the box. If you have the 2nd one, try it.
3. Check the video output of your security camera with other device (a TV set, a VCR, etc).
4. Confirm that both the security camera and the RCA media player are in NTSC system format.
5. Check the performance of your RCA media player video/audio input with other video source (VCR, satellite receiver, cable box receiver, TV set, etc). There are sometimes that there is an incompatibility between devices because of diffrences in the synchronization signals or voltage levels of the video signal.

If you have connected the digital source such as a DV Video camera to TV using HDMI (digital) or RCA (analouge) signal; and you have already configured your VCR with that TV, you should be able to record irrespective of the source signal type.
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.

The coax connection is one-way RF only from the VCR to the TV. It cannot be used to record from TV to VCR.
Run the RCA cables to the Line or Aux input on the VCR first. Watch on the TV through the coax connection to the TV. You can watch even when not recording the camera signal on the VCR by setting the output of the VCR to Line instead of a channel.
Another option would be to connect a component (RCA) output from the TV (if there is one) to the VCR Line or Aux input.
I have successfully recorded to a mini Dv tape from my computer however I connected my PC to the VX2100 using the RCA inputs. I have an adapter that I purchased from best buy that provides the RCA input/output. If your able to connect that make sure to...
1. Turn you VX2100 to Play/Edit mode (not camera mode)
2. Insure the program on your mac has an external output otherwise you won't be able to record.
3. See if your video editing software (if your using one) has an option for record to tape or to camera. I use Vegas Studio and it has an option for that.
A VCR uses a "RF" signal, where a TV uses a broadcast signal. The standard TV will not record from a security VCR. However, if the TV has a yellow "video in" jack on the back, this will work to record the VCR. You might need to buy a BNC to RCA adaptor at radio shack. Let me know if this does not work.
