    The only equipment needed for this process is a digital video camera, audio / video cable, DV tape, and TV. Remote controls are optional. The audio / video cable in this demonstration is a normal thing with consumer-based single-chip cameras. One end has a yellow RCA composite video output and a red-white stereo audio connection. The other end has a 1/8 inch jack, similar to a headphone jack.

    On high-end commercial / professional three-chip camcorders, the cable is likely to have a yellow-red-white connection on the camera. Another alternative is to use the red-white stereo cables and the S-Video connection. This information applies to televisions from various manufacturers, including but not limited to those made by LG, Samsung, Panasonic, Sony and Vizio.



    Find the input on the TV

    Most newer TVs come with a yellow-red-white connection in front or on the side. If you don't see a connection on the front or side, check the back of the TV. If you don't have one, consider purchasing an RF modulator to convert the yellow-red-white signal to RF or coaxial.

    If you see a connection on the back but you have something connected, disconnect the current connection and go to step 3.


    You can ignore the black cable already connected to the TV. This is the S-Video connection and is usually found near the yellow-red-white inputs.

    Connect the cables to the TV

    You must first connect all cables to the TV, mainly so that:



    • Are you sure you have enough length on the cable to reach from the TV to the camcorder
    • Do not pull the cable towards the TV after connecting it to the camcorder, as it may cause the camcorder to fall off the table or shelf on which it is placed and cause damage.

    Insert the cable into the color matching slots on the labeled TV Video In e Audio In. If you are using S-Video, ignore the yellow composite cable. Connect the S-Video and red-white stereo cables to the TV.


    Connect the cables to the camcorder

    Note that the 1/8-inch jack fits into the labeled slot Audio / Video Out on the camcorder. It's very simple.

    On camcorders with the yellow-red-white or S-Video cable, connect them the same way you did on the TV - only this time match the color-coded cables to the labeled connection Audio / Video Out.

    Turn on the TV

    Quite easy! But don't worry about changing the channel just yet. You still have a couple of steps.


    Put the camcorder into VCR mode

    On the panel where you turn on the camera to record video, you will notice another option that allows you to play back what you have recorded. On many cameras, the button is labeled VCR o Playback. If that's not the case, don't panic. Look for a function similar to a VCR or playback function.


    Insert the tape, rewind and play

    You will know you have videos when you press Play and start playing the recorded image in the viewfinder or on the LCD screen of the camcorder.

    Turn the TV to Aux Channel

    All TVs with yellow-red-white or S-Video inputs have an auxiliary channel. You should be able to find it by turning the TV to channel 3 and pressing the button channel down on the remote control or TV until you see the video playing from the camera. It should only take a couple of presses to find the auxiliary channel.
