Thread: Hi8 to DV Copy

  1. #1

    Default Hi8 to DV Copy

    Probably very simple but I can't figure it out. I am trying to copy from a Sony CCD-TRV218E (Hi to a Sony DCR-PC8E (DV). Using an S-VHS - S-VHS cable captures the video fine but how do I capture the audio?

    Using the RCA cable (red and white)

    I don't understand - I have a cable that has one jack on one end and a red, white and yellow jack in the other end.

    Is that what you are talking about? What plugs in where?

    the Sony CCD-TRV218E has a single A/V out socket and likewise the Sony Sony DCR-PC8E has a single A/V socket.

    I assume I can use some kind of cable to connect the 2 together but I can't use a standard RCA cable (red and white) because I have no hwere to plug it in.

    I this something I would have to source from Sony? What is it called? Have I got the wrong end of the stick?

    I think you're right. Darn Sony and their proprietary ways! Does the cable split into 3 (white, red, yellow). I pressume youy have two that look the same from each cam? If it definately has analogue in, you need to somehow connect the two - maybe with a male to female converter. Or perhaps input and output through a VCR or appripriate "slave".

    Oh crap, I have no idea what I'm talking about here!

    Get a cable with a stereo jack at each end. Connect the S-Video cable between the cameras. Then connect one end of the stereo jack cable to the 'out' port you would normally connect your three-way cable to, and the other to the mic port on the receiving camera.

    That should do it.

    yes, a stereo male/male audio cable should do the trick.
