I have to re-install the cables to a vcr/dvd recorder after I moved. Can you be as graphic as possible? Pictures really would be best!

There are two preferred connectivity methods:

  1. The best picture quality is had with a S-Video cable (having a round connector with several pins) connected between the S-Video output of the VCR to a S-Video input of the DVD recorder. Then connect the white and red audio outputs of the VCR to the corresponding inputs of the DVD recorder. In order to record the signal output from the VCR select the DVD Recorder line input where the VCR is connected.

  2. The most common connectivity method has the composite yellow video output of the VCR connected to the yellow video input of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the white and red audio outputs of the VCR to the corresponding inputs of the DVD recorder. In order to record the signal output from the VCR select the DVD Recorder line input where the VCR is connected.

Another connectivity method has the VCR’s RF coax cable output connected to the RF coax cable input of a tuner-equipped DVD Recorder. The signal output of the VCR is recorded by the DVD Recorder as analog channel 3 (or 4). There are disadvantages to this connectivity method:

-The RF coax cable connection yields the poorest picture quality
-The RF coax cable connection is normally used as the input for antenna reception
-The RF coax cable connection is sometimes used as the input for direct connection with cable service when there is no cable company converter box or when using a cable company Digital Transport Adapter (DTA). Of course, cable converter boxes and satellite tuners also have the composite outputs and S-Video output mentioned above.
