Question about HP Pavilion A820n (PP165AA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Literature for A820n indicates that component cables from a camcorder or VCR can be conncted to PC. There are no connections provided with this unit however. I wish to use the Intervideo software to capture some old 8mm video for editing later. Any suggestions as to a conncection scheme? Thanks Oliver

Camcorder should have a usb connection on it someplace, This will be a mini usb port which will connect to your computers usb port. Cable will have one standard usb connection, other end of the cable will have mini usb end. VCR video will connect to a yellow connector if there is one on your computer otherwise you will have to check out the computer store for a video capture card and put it into your computer or have them do it. Hope this helps.

I need to know how to program a RCA universal remote RCU404N


Hello
Programming method for your remote control follows:-
In order for the 4 component universal remote to control your DVD player or auxiliary component, you must program it with the code that matches your component. The DVD•AUX key can be programmed to operate a DVD player or a second TV, VCR, DBS or cable box. These instructions explain the preferred method of programming the remote-the Direct Entry method.
1. Manually turn on the component you wish to assign to the DVD•AUX key (TV, VCR, DVD, DBS System or cable box).
2. Locate the enclosed DVD code list, or the
corresponding code list for the auxiliary component (TV, VCR, DBS, or cable box).
Note: If your brand isn't listed, use one of the Code Search methods to program this remote control (See Code Search on page 9).
3. Press and hold the CODE SEARCH key until the INDICATOR LIGHT illuminates, then release the CODE SEARCH key.
4. Press and release the DVD•AUX key. The INDICATOR LIGHT will blink.
5. To program for DVD, press the VCR key. For an auxiliary component, press the corresponding component key (TV, VCR, DBS•CABLE). The INDICATOR LIGHT will blink again, then remain lit.
6. Use the number keys on the remote to enter the first code listed for your brand. After you enter a valid three-digit code, the indicator light turns off.
Note: If you enter an invalid code, the LED will flash rapidly for 2 seconds. Start over at step 3.
7. Aim the remote at your component and press the ON•OFF key. If your component turns off, you have found the correct code.
8. Enter the code in the box provided on this page for future reference.
9. If your component doesn't turn off, repeat steps 3-7 above, entering the next code for your brand. If none of the codes work or your brand is not listed, use one of the Code Search methods to program this remote (See Code Search on page 9).

Try these steps:

Locate the output jacks DVD player. Sometimes they are standard female RCA A/V jacks, like those found on the front of many VCRs. Others are more tricky, having a small jack that looks like a stereo headphones plug. These camcorders require a special cord that converts a 1/8" stereo signal into RCA A/V male plugs.
  1. Using the proper cord, connect your PLAYER to the VCR's RCA A/V input jacks, usually found on the front or back of your VCR.
  2. Turn on your VCR and TV, so you can see the input from the camcorder. You might have to select "Input 1/2", "Line 1/2", or "VIDEO" depending on your VCR model. You should now see whatever is on your camcorder displayed on your television.
  3. Press "Record" on your VCR, then press "Play" on your camcorder. That's it!

Dvd play works but vcr playing does not


For this unit the component output (green, blue, and red cables) only work for the DVD player portion of it. You will need to connect either the av input on the back or the front with composite (yellow, red, and white cables) to your television in addition to the component cables I assume you have connected already. Once you have done so you will need to switch this unit over to the right av output in order to access the vcr and also switch your television over to the right av input in order to pick up the signal from the vcr.

Cinego connection cables


The question seems to indicate that you don't have the cables. The unit comes with three different cable for video input. One for Component (HD), one for S-Video (looks like the round plug for a mouse on a computer, but is wired differently), and one that has a single yellow plug that probably is compatible with your VCR. If you don't have the proper cables, get with your Radio Shack dealer to get the, since trying to use a cable which was not designed for the unit may cause damage.

Watching tapes on TV


To connect your camcorder to a TV (or VCR), you'll need audio/video cables. These need to be run from the VIDEO and AUDIO jacks on the camcorder to the VIDEO and AUDIO inputs on the TV (or VCR). Once cabling is completed, follow either of these scenarios: When connecting the camcorder directly to the TV, turn on the TV and tune it to the video input channel by pressing the INPUT button on your remote control. # When connecting the camcorder to a VCR that is already connected to a TV: Turn on the VCR and place it in the Line or Camera mode. # Operate the TV as you normally do to see the signal coming from the VCR. Select camcorders have an S-VIDEO jack, which offers higher video quality. Provided your TV or VCR has an S-VIDEO input jack, connect the camcorder to the TV or VCR using an S-VIDEO cable. Since the S-VIDEO cable only transfers video, you will also need to use an audio cable. Select the S-VIDEO input on your TV or VCR to view the signal coming from the camcorder.
