8mm JVC tapes put into a VHS tape that will play on a combined TV and VCR. Please, please, I need your help! Found tapes from 15 years ago.

You need an 8mm player or the camera that recorded the tapes. Connect the video and audio from the 8mm player/camera to a VHS recorder. Put the 8mm on play and the VHS on record.

If the video does not have a freeview tuner it will not be able to record. There is a solution! All you need to do is get a freeview box, Argos have an Alba model for around £18 at the moment, Connect it via a scart to your video, if it has to scart connectors use the second one, often marked AV2. Then when you want to record, turn the box on to the channel you want to record, set the record timer, but change the channel to AV2 for the recording. That should then record the station, while you watch the other channels. If the VCR has only one scart, you can get a scart switching box, as shown below, from places such as Amazon.

Recording Problems


Most tv sets with freeview built in do not allow you to record it.
Check your tv instruction manual to see if it is at all possible.

Hi It sounds like possibly there is stray RF getting into your video signal from your DVD/VCR combo to your tv. Check that your cables are ok, but also, if you can, try moving the unit in relation to the tv, if it is underneath, try putting it on top or beside the tv, I've seen the effect you describe be cause by lack of sheilding in both the tv and DVD/VCR, and moving the unit could cure it. Good Luck!
