A video player can be connected to a DVD recorder using standard audio/video cables for dubbing and recording multimedia content. Whether it is a DVD player, satellite receiver or a camcorder, almost any video player device equipped with RCA connectors can be hooked up to a DVD recorder in just a few minutes. The cables are color-coded for simple connections to standard jacks. No equipment other than the audio/video cables is required.
Unplug the video player and DVD recorder from the power source.
Connect RCA audio/video cables to the "Video" and "Audio" output jacks on the back of the video player. The yellow cable attaches to the video jack; the red cable attaches to the right audio jack; the white cable connects to the left audio jack.
Insert the plugs on the opposite ends of the cables into the "Video" and "Audio" input jacks on the DVD recorder using the same color codes for the connections.
Plug in and turn on the video player and DVD recorder.
- Monitor the recording by connecting a yellow RCA video cable to the DVD recorder's "Video" output jack, and then insert the other end of the cable into the "Video" input jack on the back of a television. Add red and white audio cables to the DVD recorder's "Audio" output and the "Audio" input jacks on the TV to monitor the sound as well.
- Do not cross the red and white audio cables to the wrong jacks or the stereo signal output to the speakers will be reversed.
