Question about Zio Corporation CameraMate RealTime (cm-50000) Video Capture
I cannot get an output from my PAL VHS recorder via a scart to composite cable plugged in to the cameramate unit. I have checked with scart from VCR to scart in to TV and this is fine. But output from scart from VCR to composite video (yellow lead) cannot be seen on TV. I have tried another VCR but still no joy. Both were Panasonic VCRs. The cables were all new and top quality. Any ideas? Should I try a scart to S-video lead connection between VCR and Cameramate instead? Thanks Frustrated.
Does your television have multiple scart connectors? Sometimes some models have only 1 connector that will accept RGB signals... Another thing you can check are VCR settings - scart component video output is not "official" and hence you might need to look at some of the setting if you need to enable it. Another possibility is that your scart cable may not have your rgb signals connected (based on wikipedia reference: "not all SCART cables make use of all the pins, often leaving out RGB signals. In many cases there is also no way to see which type of signal that is currently displayed on the TV set."
