Hi nedw, welcome to CDFreaks! :slight_smile:

Is your Pioneer recorder an NTSC format recorder (e.g. North America) or a PAL recorder (e.g. Europe)?

If you try to record NTSC on a PAL recorder, you would either get a bad picture or no picture at all.

Have you connected both sound and video signals from the VHS tape player to the DVD recorder?

my dvd recorder is a pioneer dvr220 and it will play pal or ntsc but thats about all i know about it when i try to record i get perfect sound but no video—i have a friend that is a computer freak and he says he will put this ntsc tape through his tuner on the puter and hopefully i will get some good results many many thanks for the helpful replies thank you --ned:iagree:
