Daewoo TV/VCR combi - outputting to DVD recorder

    I want to archive some old VHS tapes to a Pioneer DVR520H DVD recorder.

    We have two VCRs in the house, but both of them are TV/VCR combis.
    The one with more connections is a Daewoo GB14H3T2.

    I have tried every possible combination of leads which we have and none of them will allow video _output_ from the Daewoo.
    For example, I have a lead with
    - a scart with 'in-out' switch at one end, and
    - a three pronged yellow-red-white lead (composite video) at the other.

    If I follow these steps:

    - put the scart end into the Daewoo and switch it to 'out',
    - put the three prongs (composite video) into the Pioneer input,
    - select the Pioneer input as my source,

    the recording comes out blank.

    Would I be better off getting a good scart-to-scart connector with 'in out' switch? (I have tried standard scart without in-out switch to no avail.)

    Alternatively, maybe it is a limitation of basic TV/VCR combis that they cannot output video, and their connectors are only for input.
    If I buy a new basic VCR player, will this be able to do it?

    Thanks for any guidance on this,
