    I have recently come into the ownership of a mint hardly used vintage JVC TOP LOADING VHS VCR PLAYER RECORDER HR-7200EK and am looking to link it up to my Sony flat screen TV. As the VHS recorder is pre-scart, I'm wanting to ask what would be the simplest way/procedure of doing so and what cables/connections I might require to do so.

    Attached are photos of the connections on the back of the VCR and on the back of my TV. If anyone can offer adivce/help, would be eternally grateful.

    Looks like a bnc plug for video and 5 pin din plug for audio.
    There is a simple connector that will do it 'all in one'. Try this . . .
    Mixed AV cable

    Doesn't say whether the DIN is audio in or audio out to the connector. As the Video has both in and out from the scart it could be either. No wiring diagram is given.

    5 pin din plugs are normally in and out. For a full explanation check out this link (it's old - 2005, but the facts don't change)
