Hello i am trying to get an answer but i have not been able to find any help yet. I am using a Philips DVDR72/17 dvd recorder and the back has several inputs and outputs. There is EXT1 which is Component cables and EXT2 which is composite. Outputs both have component and composite. It says in the manual
“Do not connect a Progressive Scan video source to the IN EXT 1 COMPONENT VIDEO jacks. The Recorder cannot recive Progressive Scan video.”
So I am not very tech when it comes to video stuff, but isnt all Component progressive scan? Or is there also interlaced? I just want to hook up my cable box via component to record, but I am guessing HD and all the shows on the cable box are progressive scan. Is there anyway to get my cable box to be able to record with the DVD recorder?
Thanks for the help
