    I have this camcorder & was hoping to be able to plug it into the TV & play the footage back. Could I then record this to my DVD recorder as long as the DVD R was setup to record whatever AV channel the camcorder was playing through?

    Thanks


    Murfer :D

    Yes, the output of a camcorder can be recorded by any recorder with a composite/S-Video input.
    If your camcorder has a firewire (aka DVport, iLink, ieee1394) output and your DVD recorder also has a firewire input then you can also use this and it will give the best results as the signal stays digital at all times.

    The camcorder only has an AV cable with It, yellow & black connectors to the tv & one that plugs into the camcorder. Will i need an S-video cable?

    Thanks

    No, S-Video (if the cam has this socket) would offer better PQ but is not needed. It is used instead of the composite (yellow phono plug).
