I am trying to connect my digital camcorder to my standalone dvd recorder. The firewire link works fine but I want an analogue signal so I get the time/date stamp. I recently bought a s-video and 3.5mm to scart all in one cable as I thought this maybe a good option. Connected the cam to the recorder via scart but I only get a black and white picture ! Checked that the recorder has s-video inputs for compatability just to make sure it can accept the signal. Anyone have any ideas otherwise I will have to revert to firewire.
