Difficulty to record with a sony handycam dcr-trv22


is it able to record audio? are you able to see the indicators on the lcd screen? are you able to playback previous tapes with recording...if you say yes to all of the questions, there is no doubt that you dont have an issue with the lcd screen. the issue that your having is with the ccd imaging sensor. sony has a recall program for this specific model yrs back, unfortunately its already been discontinued and if you send it to them,it will be treated as an out-of-warranty repair.

You indicated you have a DVD PLAYER, not DVD recorder. You cannot record on to a DVD on a player, you need to buy a DVD recorder/player. Unlike a VCR which stands for Video Cassett Recorder which can record and playback video. DVD recorder technolgy much more complicated.

Recording onto a mini dv tape from Mac computer Via firewire


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.

Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Taping


If there is no coaxial cable input on VCR, then it should work by RCA cables. Which is the Yellow , red/white cables. On the back of the VCR. Take a set of RCA cables Yellow for video, red/white for audio to the VCR output.Then do the same to the Television input. Next use the television remote to turn the TV to Video input this will allow you to view what's playing on VCR. Then take another set of RCA cables and reverse the first setup. Attached Cables to VCR input and cables to TV Output. This will allow you record what's on television. Now make sure the cable is screwed to coaxial cable input on television. This will able you to access cable programming on television, view vhs tapes, and record programming directly from television.Good Luck

Hooking up a DVD player to a LCD TV


Typically, there is no video out from TV. You would have to connect the satellite receiver output to the DVD recorder input and connect the DVD recorder output to the TV. Word of warning - digital signals (DTV coax or HDMI) from the satellite receiver carry copyright info embedded, which may limit what it will allow you to put on a DVD. Typically anything can be recorded on the hard drive of the recorder, but programs from subscription channels may not go to a DVD.
