    Argos are selling these dvd recorders at £80.
    All I want one for is to stand it alone and copy my Sony camcorder tapes onto dvd. Can I do this using the av inputs and the lead provided with the camcorder?
    Can i do the same using my digital camera? Also can I use DVD+R to record on?
    Sorry if I sound a bit thick but I'm new to all this Thanks

    Yes there is no reason why you can't do this.

    I don't think this particular unit has DV inputs but you will be able to connect the white/red/yellow phono inputs into the front of the Alba no problem.

    You don't mention the type of camcorder you have. If it's a digital one you might be better served with a DVD recorder with DV input (slightly better picture/sound quality)) but the Alba will serve its purpose perfectly well.

    As for the digital camera, I'm not sure how exactly you'd be wanting to connect this. Do you have movie clips on the camera you want transferring to DVD? If so, then yes, these will transfer across (although it might be better to do this on a PC). If it's pictures, then no it will not copy the individual JPGs over, you'll need a PC burner for that (CD burner's fine, pictures don't take up too much space).

    My camcorder is a digital one (Sony DCR-HC14 mini dv) the leads I use for transfering to VHS are the red/yellow/white ones you mention through a scart adaptor.
    As for the digital camera I want to only transfer still photos.I tried this in the same way as the camcorder to transfer to VHS and it worked.

    Was in Asda this morning and they have a cyberhome dvd recorder for £80 with dv in.
    Might be better capturing wth this socket than composite.

    i bought the Alba rdvd 1002 from Argos last week..
    am recieving Tv/freeview channels with no problem but completely baffled as to why it plays some Dvds(feature films) but not others..don't think it's a region-code problem cos all the Dvds ive tried are same region..
    also, a friend has identical Dvr and the same Dvds play fine on theirs, albeit their set-up link with the telly is different from mine..
    my setup is: wall-ariel into freeview...freeview-rf-scart out into Dvr..Dvr-rf-scart out into Vcr..Vcr-rf out into telly.
    will someone please forward a suggestion..
    thanks! in anticipation of a reply.
