Connect from video out (yellow) to either front or back video in and audio out R (right red) to audio in R and audio out L (left white) to audio in L. The picture quality will not be as good as the front USB or DV connections.

Check video input setting to DVD recorder...should be set to "External" or "Line". This should activate the video input jacks on the rear of the RDR-VX530 and allow it to "see" your Sony handycam.

I cannot get the system to change the channel on my cable box during timer recording, even though it works when I test it.


I have the same problem. It works fine during setup and changes channels on my DirecTV receiver but does not change channels when programmed for a timed recording. I talked to a Sony Service Representative and they said to return it to Walmart and get another one, but I suspect I would encounter the same problem. I think their is a major design problem with the RDR-GX257. I would be curious to see if others are having the same problem.

Sony dvd recorder rdr gx7 sending disc error message


The laser readerwriter is most likely burned out, it is the most common failure. The option of repair is not really feasible as the cost of new is really low.

DVD recorder has stopped recording


Make sure the DVD-R is 8x or SLOWER. They are difficult to find these days. The unit will not not give any specific warning when a faster disc is used, it just doesn't work. The burner is simply an IDE drive, so it is upgradeable, should you wish to risk that route.
