    I have recently purchased a Toshiba RDSX 34 and take delivery of it on Monday. :D

    Dunno if it is possible or not, but I was wondering if you are able to connect a VCR and copy video footage (family stuff) onto the Tosh's hard drive.

    If it is a runner, then what do I have to do.

    Many thanks in anticipation. :hiya:

    Yes you can. Just connect the RDXS34 and VCR together by Scart cable.

    Thanks for the reply. :)

    Good to know it's possible. I guess the instructions will be buried in the owners manual.

    It's a basic connection: Input/Output Scart on the VCR to Line in on the Toshiba. If you have problems connecting it up come back to us - but there isn't really much point in trying to describe the process before you have the machine.

    I want to do the same kind of video recording method, but I want to record myself palying video games off the TV (like a capture card). I found a really good camcorder, Aiptek A-HD+ 1080p SD card/Hard Drive camcorder, and hopefully my mom will order it for me on Monday, and hopefully receive it sometime next week or the week after.

    Before, I used a Creative Labs Vado pocket camcorder, and after the first dat of recieving it as my most anticipated birth-day presents...it sucked; the video and audio quality is like really bad, so she said she would send it back on Monday (post office is closed) and get a refund, so right now I have nothing to record with if I need to :mad:. Hopefully it wont be a long wait...

    But yea, I know to record this way, I need a 4-way splitter/amplifier, and one composite AV cable for the TV (the camcorder comes its own :D). So in the end, the set up will be: Wii and TV goes into the output jacks of the box, and the camcorder gets plugged into the input jacks. So that way, everythign u see within the TV will be directly recorded to the camcorder's hard drive, thus eliminating bad quality issues, background noises, and those gay scrolling TV bars.

    I can't wait to get this camcorder :thumbsup:
