Question about VCRs
I am trying to record a home movie onto another vhs casette. I have two vcr recorders and dont know how to do it. Where do i plug into on the both of them to record?
If your plan is to copy a VHS movie to a blank VHS tape, the connections would require a 3 wire RCA connector/cable. The unit where the original movie will be played will be the player. Connect the yellow video RCA cable to the VIDEO OUT, the red & white to the AUDIO L/R OUT. On the 2nd unit designated as recorder, slip in the blank VHS tape. Connect the other end of the RCA 3 wire cable to yellow VIDEO IN, the red & white to the AUDIO L/R IN. Connect the RF OUT of the 2nd unit (recorder to the ANT IN of a TV set. Set the TV to either Channel 3 or 4 as the case may be.
If the recorder has a manual selector or via remote, pls verify that it is set to Video and not tuner (or channels) input.
Press Record on the recorder (2nd unit), press play on the 1st unit (player). The TV will serve as monitor to your copying progress.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or shoould you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
