Re: How do I record from my TV to your PC / laptop...
To record video on a computer, you need an mpeg encoder. You can buy one that plugs in to USB, for about $30. Takes up hard drive space to save lots of vidoe however, so you will probably want to burn them off to CD if you want to save them.

Your recorder is mostly analogue with just a hdmi output, you need to link up using a scart lead or similar adapter lead for recording, looks to me like scart 1 (decoder) or the front sockets for input use while. the other scart looks to be just for TV to use.
If your TV has another hdmi then I would have thought your sky sat would connect that way leaving the scart for your video.
Though if it has only one, then you are looking at a multi input box for hdmi (some are automatic others have remote control) or demote your video's hdmi lead and connect it to the Sky sat, use the scart lead to link it with the video's scart 1 and the other scart socket to TV by the look of things.
Its a problem with older and younger equipment because they are built at different times with their connections decided by that time of manufacture.
follow this instruction. God bless you
connections from DVD
that Scart connections are pushed
home and that the Scart plug has not
out on one side.
separate audio and video connections are
use check the audio output from the DVD
is connected to the Audio input of
Buy 2 hdmi leads and use one to connect sky TV decoder to the hdmi 1 socket on the back of the TV and if your DVd recorder has an hdmi socket attach it to hdmi 2 or leave it on the scart socket
as you don't name your dvd recorder the connections available are unknown
hdmi is the best followed by component which requires a 3 cable lead 3 video (video is red green blue plugs ) audio is red and white which is a 2 wire lead which all are needed to get video and audio to your TV
scart is the lowest quality along with composite video
You only need coaxial cable to pick up TV stations broadcast via an aerial. If your TV has sockets to connect via HDMI or SCART, then any players can be connected via them. So if the adapter box picks up TV signals, you connect the main aerial cable to that and it should have a coaxial out socket, that should be connected to the aerial in of your TV. If you are recording to an analogue video from the adapter box, then that will need to be connected via a scart socket or other connection.
you get yourself a s-video lead..plug one end in pc and other in tv....
on pc f-keys look for the one with a "square" icon on it.(usually f4)
press the fn key and the f4 key together(at once) to switch form pc screen to tv..
make sure youve selected av on tv..you should have an av channel assigned to s-video if not you can assign one in menu settings.
on my tv I have 3 scarts 2 video i/o one front one back and a s-video..video i/o can also be used for audio though there are separate audio outputs.I also have mine linked upto a 10 ft projector screen via infra red so able to watch tv/sky or pc on projector in different room
i can tell you the best way but i need to know what your using ie scart leads things like that also tell me how many scart sockets in telly and in dvd and sky and vcr after you give me this info il tell you what needs pluggging into what basing it on your telly has 2 scart if not let me know ok 1. dvd to telly via scart lead 2. then sky to vcr via scart doing it this way allows you to record sky using av channel on vcr 3. vcr to telly via scart lead then if you want your video to record normal telly channels you need to use normal arial leads in this order 1. from arial to vcr then from vcr to telly doin this allows you to record the channels you get through the arial like 1 2 3 4 5 also this way when you choose 1 or 2 or 3 on video it will record that channel allowing you to watch whatever on sky whilst recording normal telly If your telly only has one scart socket in the back then you need to buy a scart adaptor that converts one scart socket into 2 or even let me know if you understand what im telling you or if you need further help ok just let me know im going out for 2 hours but will check your reply then so hope you dont mind waiting if you need help ok
I had the same problem. I was going from PC -> Dvd recorder -> TV. I had the S-Video output from the averkey going via an adaptor into the DVD scart input. I discovered a setting within the DVD menu which could select between 's-video' and 'composite video' on the scart socket. (it appears that scart can carry either/or, I guess).
I changed from composite to s-video, and I got colour.
I think seeing a greyscale image indicates that the signal being sent is S-Video, but the equipment that is recieving it is expecting composite video.
does your television have multiple scart connectors? Sometimes some models have only 1 connector that will accept RGB signals... Another thing you can check are VCR settings - scart component video output is not "official" and hence you might need to look at some of the setting if you need to enable it. Another possibility is that your scart cable may not have your rgb signals connected (based on wikipedia reference: "not all SCART cables make use of all the pins, often leaving out RGB signals. In many cases there is also no way to see which type of signal that is currently displayed on the TV set."
Instead of connecting each device (sky&dvd rec.) to the TV separately, I would simply hook up the sky to dvd recorder (connect the sky output and dvd recorder input), and then connect the dvd recorder output (must be called "play out") to one of the available recorder inputs (which could be a dvr, an empty tape input, etc)of your amp. However, you'll still have to establish a feedback between your dvd recorder and your amp. Therefore, if the dvd rec. supports it, you'll have to hook up the rec.out, which is on your amp.,to rec.in on your dvd recorder. After all these audio connections, you will only need to make a video connection among the sky, dvd rec., and tv. Get a video cable to hook up the sky video output to your dvd recorder's video input, then do the same thing between the dvd recorder's tv output and tv.
