when i try to play my a dvd on my dvd player from my
dvd player-> reciever(av cords)-> vcr(av cords)->to my tv through coaxle cord i get a bright image then a darker image, my sister says this is a feature but i think its a copyright protection since the signal is goin through the vcr. i also try to watch a movie on my ps2 by going from the ps2 (av cords)->vcr(coaxle)-> the tv... and it does the same thing! ( tried on different tvs)

can someone please help me... or diecrect me to a person/source that can?

thank you very much!


av cords- three color cords
coaxle- the screw on one

Hey mac!! Good to see you again! I have that piece of dung, I don't know how to work it!!! It's cheaper than the other good ones so I decide to try that first!!

How do you hook that up??? Can i put a coxial cable instead of a video cable?? video cables are hard to find in my area, or it would be very pricey.

Hiya hamster, :)

No, it takes the cables with the RCA ends
on 'em. Where are you located? The cables
are everywhere here in the USA, from
Wal-Mart to Radio Shack.

Mine works great between two VCRs...

Cheers, Mac

Hi!! :)

So you have one! Great!! How do you hook it up and what is the name of the cables call.... Just look for something call RCA Ends?

So I just hook up one end to the video section of the DVD player and one end to the VCR Player?? easy as that???

:) plug adapters... eek!!

It uses the standard RCA cables like VCRs
use. Remember it's only a video clarifier,
so it just needs to have a cable from the
DVD video output and one going to the
VCR video input.

Your audio still goes straight from the DVD
to the VCR.

Code:
 DVD or VCR

Now just hook the VCR to the TV
as usual. Make any sense?

One other thing, if ya get the AC adapter,
it's one of them cheap universal things with
all the outputs on it. I'd recommend either
using a battery or go to an electronics store
and get a decent AC adapter.

I'm using the cheapy, but it took two tries
to get a good one. :)

Hey Mac!! gee wonder what happen to nascar???

I have the same directions on the front of the unit. I think it's broken!! I wish it has a light that lights up to let us know when it's on!!

Yeah, I was using the coxial cables to hook up the Video in to the video out!!

So If I buy the RCA Cable and stick it just as you drawn out then I should be all set!! also I can use my Av Cords (The three color cords) to use as a audio wires right??

thanz!!

ps.. I had a digital video Clarifer (the cheap ones) way back and that one show the light when it's on. I used it for my VCR to my VCR but the thing is when my friend hooked it up, He put in a Switch so I can see what I'm recording.... man, it was soooo complicated!!!

Hi nascar735

Yes its a copy protection problem. Another solution is to buy a video to RF converter from BEST BUY for about $30.00. Or if your TV has AV inputs use them. I had a TV with just the Cable input and bought the converter. It hooks up to the same cable input that the VCR used then the VCR plugged into it. It automatically switched between the VCR and the DVD when the DVD player was turned on.

Yep, that's it. But it is an audio/video cable.

BTW, my diagram didn't allow for stereo audio, LOL. :)

[EDIT] Ok, now it does... :D
