Sony DVDR trouble recording from VCR (Sony RDR-GX330)

[qanda]This thread is about the Sony RDR-GX330. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I am trying to record onto a dvdr from a VHS. I am only able to get audio but not video. My DVR is a Sony RDR-GX330 and the VCR I am using is a Samsung DVD/VCR combo however I have had this problem with 2 other VCRs that I have tried. I have also tried different cables. At a loss…

Your SONY DVDR may be similar to my older SONY model. If you are using an SVIDEO cable you need to set the video input to do that. Or the opposite may be the case. So check the video input setting on the SONY DVD RECORDER to ensure it matches the type of video cable being used.
