Question about Sony RDR-VX555
I connect the yellow (video) cables to both. Red (audio R) and White (audio L) to both. I set the VCR to L2 (input from front jacks). I hit Record then pause/slow on VCR. I go to the DVR and set it up to "record to vcr". I hit the pause/slow again on the VCR. Then push the button to start the recording from the DVR. This is per the manual that came with the Panasonic VCR and the online directions with the Cox DVR. The status shows the show is being recorded from the DVR but the tape, when finished is blank.
What am I doing wrong?
Is L2 for composite video (yellow) or S-Video? Try watching a video on L2 with the composite video plugged into the back of your TV, if it works, then do the same with the DVR, if that works, then run the DVR composite video into a receiver, then the L2 from the VCR to the video out on your receiver. It's possible that the VCR won't record anything that isn't an applified signal. That's what the receiver does.
