Analog Videotape conversion digital

I'm trying to convert Analog Videotape to digital and transfer it to Mac OSX 10.5.3 from Hitachi VHS/DVD combo using Pinnacle Video Capture for Mac.
Problem 1. I cannot find video and audio OUT sockets on the combo. The yellow, white and red female sockets on the front of the Hitachi are  labeled Video IN and audio (Left and and Right) IN.
Problem 2. I cannot locate a triple cable —three male, yellow, white and red sockets at each end.

    Thank you, Thank you,Thank you! Your very straightforward stimulating, father-like advice sent this old man rocketing to PC World along with his big son who pointed him in the direction of a scart VHS adaptor for my Pinnacle Video Capture hardware which then converts the analog to digital and plops in into iTunes as an MPEG. Long may you reign! Nick Sharkey

    I purchased a scart to cable adaptor which I connected to AV2 scart socket on the back of my Hitachi combo VHS. The adaptor provided me with three female sockets viz yellow white and red which enables me to connect audio video from the VCR to my wonderful little Pinnacle VIDEO CAPTURE FOR MAC hardware which transfers the digitised data to iTunes on my Mac5 Leopard via a USB cable, ready to sync with iPod or Apple TV. The Pinnacle capture hardware includes an MPEG-4 encoder which helps economise on disc space. ? Nick

    Thanks to FixYa's terse but friendly and simple advice to go visit a PC store led me to a Scart-to-Cable adaptor. That solution went to the root of the problem. Now my Pinnacle Video Capture for Mac is able to do what it says it can do, convert analog video to digital and thence into itunes or iPod in MPEG-4 format and, if I wish, to DVD.


    Sincerely,  Nick

I have a number of VHS-C tapes from my various video cameras in the early-to-mid 1990s that I'm transferring to DVD via my DVD/VCR combo device. But several of of these tapes that have the suffix...


VHS-C and S VHS-C are two different animals. Super VHS-C will have much better video resolution than standard VHS and uses better videotape. A standard VCR will not play the Super format. You need a S VHS VCR. You would need not only a S VHS VCR but also a S VHS-C adapter. Yes, Not even the adapter is the same as a standard VHS-C adapter cassette.

You can send out your few S VHS-C tapes to a video conversion service. That might be the least expensive way to get them on DVD. Otherwise you could look on E-Bay.com for either a compatible camcorder (S VHS-C) or the S VHS VCR and the S VHS-C adapter.

http://vhs-to-dvd.com is one video conversion service that should be able to get your tapes on DVD for you. You could also look locally for a video service that does conversions to DVD.

Are you truly free? If so, then answer the


Hello. Your digital TV is all set up to recieve the digital signal that is now the standard signal coming into your home. The old analog signal is history. If you still want to use your VHS/DVD recorder you will have to get a signal conversion box, at your local walmart or radio shack. This will take the new digital signal and convert it so your old analog VHS/DVD can process it properly. Joe

please rate my answer as very helpful....and free. thanks. Joe

Conversion vhs to dvd


I can only offer you 1 option for this case.
In converting the VHS video tape to DVD you can use computer. All you need to have is the VHS player with RCA audio video cables. Then a computer that has video capture card or USB capture card. This will take time but you can just transfer all the copyrighted videos to DVD and to computer data (post to internet)

*Needs realtime transfer VHS to Computer with the prefered resolution option.
*Burn to DVD, it will depends on your DVD drive speed.

How do i copy the video to my PC?


The easiest way is to just put the DVD in your PC and copy it.
Pop the DVD out of the camcorder and put it in your PCs DVD drive. Use your explorer window to copy the video file on the DVD to your PC. If you need to convert the DVD to another format for archiving there are alot of DVD conversion programs you can purchase online. There are also a few free programs you could use.
If you don't want to remove the DVD you could plug in your S-video and or the composite A/V cable that came with your camcorder into your PC with an analog to digital converter and transfer it there .

I dont really know whats wrong with it when ii try to get it to copy a vhs to advd it wont work?


I don't know what recorder machine you have or what your hooking up to do your transferring. You cant convert VHS movie to DVD by plugging in RCA jacks from VHS player to DVD recorder. DVD reads digital and VHS does not because it reads analog and out put analog. you have to covert VHS movie into digital in order to transfer to DVD. There is a program you can buy call Roxio Easy. great stuff, cost 59.00 buck for your desk top computer, everything you need is there to transfer VHS to DVD...hope that help some, good luck.

ERROR CODES E24 ~& E4 54037380 ON MY DVD RECORDER, CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT THESE MEAN, THANKS


If you are trying to record vhs tapes to the dvr side, first you need to get 1x up to 8x DVD-R dvds. You can find them on ebay. The machine has problems recognizing the up to 16x type. Put the blank DVD in and let it load. Then start playing (not dubbing but playing) the videotape for at least 6-8 seconds. If you have somewhat of a lead-in on the videotape you can let it go even 10 seconds. Only after the videotape has been playing for this period of time, press the dubbing button. If the error code does come up, rewind the tape and start again, but in most cases the error code will not happen if you do it like this.

DCV-TRV460 Tranfer to DVD


Converting analog video, like from Hi-8, 8mm, and VHS to digital video is not as simple as plugging in a cable. If you happen to have a DVD recorder deck, you can burn a disc from the footage directly. Otherwise, you'll need to get some sort of capture device that converts the analog information to digital, then burn a DVD. I use a Hauppauge TV capture card, it converts signals from coaxial cable to digital on my hard drive. There are small, USB-based video capture devices readily available, some come with editing software, but you can always use Windows Movie Maker on a PC, or iMovie on a Mac.

VHS to digital conversion the ghetto way


The Trv19 has i.LINK™ (DV IN/OUT). So it would be possible to capture your VHS on a PC/MAC and then upload it to the Trv19. I haven't done the upload step to this model, but I've used Dazzle's (http://www.dazzle.com) and Hauppaugge (http://www.hauppauge.com/) capture cards/devices to capture the NTSC/PAL video and audio. From there you upload via iLINK (aka FireWire) to the camera.

Can I transfer videotape movies onto DVD media using the Hitachi DVD-Camcorder?


Yes, and it is highly recommended to do so. Hitachi’s DVD-Camcorder has an advanced analogto-digital conversion system. By using the analog Audio/Video input on the camcorder, the tape based information is converted into digital data and is then recorded onto the DVD disc. See manual instructions for switching input from Camera to Line-In.
