It may be that the tape you are trying to record from is copy-protected. You will then get a "scrambled" picture

How to export recorded video on a Pelco DX8100 DVR?


Converting Pelco exported video files
WHAT IS A DVR?
A DVR is a video recording and pl
ayback device that inco
rporates all of the essential capa
bilities of a VCR but adds significan
t advantages. Like
a VCR, video is recorded from one or more cameras and stored for later playback and retrieval; however, in a DVR, video data is
recorded and
stored on a hard disk instead of
magnetic tape.
Storing video in
this manner facilitates
instant, rand
om access to data, as opp
osed to sequential
access inherent to tape-based recording. This means no fast-forwarding or rewinding is necessary to locate the data a user want
s to view or
export. Another key advantage over tape is decreased maintenance. With no need to replace tapes, DVRs with hard disks can be le
ft unattended
for extended periods of time. Since video remains in the digital domain, data is easy to store, transport, and manipulate. Unli
ke analog video
recordings, digital data does not suffer from a loss in quality wh
en copied or moved from device to device. Because DVRs rely o
n hard disks
instead of tape, data storage is virtually unlimited. Video data
can also take advantage of comp
ression technology
to increase
the efficiency of
storage media. Modern DVRs, such as the DX8000, allow users to record, play back, and view live video simultaneously. Keeping d
ata digital
means video can be easily backed up to a variety of storage media.
It also means that alphanumeric
information, such as date, t
ime, and
transaction statistics,
can be synchronously recorded with video.

Hi. My 8 year old Wharfedale tv ha been working perfectly until now. The picture is fantastic on all the channels including freeview. The only problem is that of yesterday it has lost all reception from...


Hi, problems like this are usually caused by a bad connection or faulty scart lead, you could try to replace the scart lead or check to see if the one you are using is loose.

Hope this helps

Is it possible to convert their old Video 8 movies to digital? If so, how do I do and what equipment do I need?


Hi. Yes, especially since it sounds as if you may still have your Video 8 camera, but if not then get one on eBay etc. - you could always sell it back when finished.

I think you may want to record the movies in another form, e.g. DVD, so they can be played more easily on PC or TV.

If so, a VCR or DVD recorder would still do the job but it would be best to play the movies with the Video 8 camera plugged into a DVD/Hard drive recorder. This would best allow editing before later saving onto DVD from the hard drive.

You could get video capture software to record the movies onto PC but I have not tried this and think it might prove more complicated.

Wish to record on analog VCR and not affect digital TV reception


I don't think it will affect the digital TV reception, but if you try to use the VCR built-in tuner it is still analog and you won't be able to record digital channels that way. If your digital TV converter has video-out and audio-out connectors, then you can connect those to the corresponding connectors on your VCR to record.

Vcr recording


See page 10 of the manual re connections
The vcr (or DVD hard drive) you want to tape to has to be plugged in to the sockets shown for "video cassette recorder"

I connect the vcr that I want to tape from as per the "TV/DBS"

I select TV/DBS and hit play on the from vcr.
Then I hit record on the to VCR (or in my case a DVD hard drive)

VCR won't tape and get no playback


First check how good / bad are your recordings. Take a current / recent recording done after this problem cropped up, and play it back on another VCR - maybe a friend's. If the recording plays back badly- showing the symptoms you described, then the problem is still dirty or worn out Video Heads. If the Recording plays back perfectly on the friend's machine, but plays back badly on your machine, I still suggest that you try cleaning the Heads one more time, and if the problem is not resolved, it is time to trash the VCR. One last question, you say that you have reset the channels. Are the reception channels' images clear? I may be able to give some more suggestions, based on this response.
