I hate these little converters, much more trouble than they're worth.

The red and white leads provide stereo. As with VCR's just having a white phono out is quite common. There's just no connection for the red.

Its then a case of recording to your PC HDD, Edit the recording and saving the file. Finally burning the file to DVD.

You have to ensure that, assuming the options there, that you save your file as MPEG1 or MPEG2 or any file compatible with your DVD player.

In this case it looks like your "burn" failed for what ever reason. I'm afraid that disk is now a coaster. Have another crack, take your time, one stage at a time.

The way I do it, I've got a DVD recorder with a built in HDD.

Hook up my VCR to DVD recorder via scart and loop it through to a TV so I can monitor it.

Press record on the DVD and play on the VCR. When complete, edit the recorded file on my DVD then copy or dub to and finalize the recorded DVD.

I have trouble setting up my 50 inch T.V. It is connected to a VCR/DVD player recorder. I have a red, yellow, and white cable. Do I need anything more?


If possible use a AV SCART connection lead as you get audio & video! If you want to use the phono connection you need to connect all 3 red/white/yellow to the TV and the VCR/DVD! Red & white are audio, yellow video!

I am trying to use the Dazzle hooked up with my VCR ( I have done it before) but now the VCR is not playing the movie (can't see the video on my computer). The VCR is basic, it doesn't have an S Video


The setup should be like this.

VHS > RCA > Dazzle > Computer.

The cable must be connected at the back Audio/Video output not in the Input.

Please check also the online documentation below.

No video displayed in the Instant DVD Recorder preview window.

I have red, white and yellow leads plus an S video going from the Dazzle to the TV and the TV connected to the VCR by a Scart, I record sound but no picture. Am I hooked up correctly and what do I select...


If you are using "Composite" output the leads are red/white = sound. Yellow = video. If you are using S-video cable then yes you will need to select that option in the menu.
Hope this helps, Dave

Greets - You are mixing cables up. You need to connect the Dazzle yellow, red, white cables to the yellow, red white cables on the TV. You can't plug standard video/audio cables into the component (red, blue, green) connectors on the TV.
take a look at this diagram, just pretend the devices on the left are all connectors on your TV.

VHS to Easy capture to computer


The plugs you speak of are called RCA plugs, (Male side has an outside ring with "slots" around the edge, and a pin in the center. Female side has a short round "riser" with a hole in it). You need just standard Audio/Video hookup cables, available at any electronics store.. Walmart/Target/Kmart has them in the TV section. They get plugged into the Audio (Red & White) OUT of the VCR, into the Audio IN (Red & White) of the Easy Capture. The Yellow lead is for Video In/Out between the VCR and Easy Capture. The black is probably the S-Video connector, (round, has very small square hole, surronded by 4, 5, or 7 tiny pin holes) that can be also used to connect video/audio between VCR(if so equipped) and Easy Capture. Get a set of audio/video dubbing cables (abt $10 usually), connect Red to Red, White to White, Yellow to Yellow. Plug the Easy Capture USB cable into your computer (most likely), start the capture program. Start your vcr, hit Play. You should see your vcr tape playing on the computer screen.

How do i/can i record tv to a DVD ]


If your using RCA cables (thats the red, white & yellow leads) you need run yellow RCA from the 'VIDEO (or) TV OUTPUT' at the back of your tv, to the 'VIDEO (or) TV INPUT' in the back of your DVD/VCR combo unit, & do the same with the red & white 'AUDIO' leads only run them from AUDIO OUTPUT(tv) to AUDIO INPUT(dvdrecorder). Now set the mode of the dvd recorder to TV IN or AUX IN. Now it should record whatever you see on the tv screen. But if your tv has an S VIDEO OUTPUT option, using an S VIDEO cable would be much easier & produces a better copy! Hope this helps!

OK,you need 3 leads,(A/V leads),normally red white and yellow.

So yellow is for Picture (video).go from video OUT (combo) to TV video IN.

Then red and white .... Audio OUT of combo into Audio IN on TV

TV must then be set to AV1 or AV2 depending on which AV inputs you used..

How to connect a vcr for recording programs


1 - To start with..
Plug aerial lead into the "RF input" on rear of vcr
--> now you can tape programs (providing vc is "tuned" correctly)

2 - Plug a lead from "RF output" into tv's "RF input"
--> now you can watch programs on tv _independently_ of vcr (ie can be watching 1 program & taping a separate one on vcr)

3 - Plug red/white/yellow cable from vcr's "VIDEO/AUDIO output" into tv's "VIDEO/AUDIO input"
--> now you can
1) play a tape in vcr, & watch it on tv
& 2) change what watching on tv via vcr's remote


* Note: This is for analogue terrestial television (aerial on roof), not digital/satellite tv, connecting to stereo, etc, etc (the "more involved " setups)

Pinnale Dazzle DVD recorder doesn't recognize VCR


On the start up of the instant DVD recorder program, you can either use the "let the wizard guide you" or "advance mode"

1. Select source:
you should select the options:

Video standard NTSC (Because this is the default in our region)
Video composite - if you are using RCA (red, yellow and white cables)
S-video - if you are using the cable with several pins in it.

2. Select Burner
You should select the options:
Hard disc folder - if you will be saving the content in your hard drive, the format of this files are DVD such as VOB and IFO etc.
TSST - _ _ _ _ - if you will selecting your DVD drive.

(If you have selected your DVD Burner and you cannot click "next" to proceed to the Third option,
this means that your DVD drive is not able to burn a DVD)

3. Select menus
It must be NO

4. Recording
select total recording time (make sure that dazzle is selected in the "select source" to set the total recording time)
