To Elnathan: Man, the only way might be to install another RCA connector for Digital Video Out from video signal pre amplifier output. AFAIK no DV signals are carried thru RCA jacks - for this purpose is used DV connector. Anyhow you should install a lot of PCBs into your deck. Anyhow good luck!

I know this is a bit off the topic, but consider this:

I own a (once-expensive) old Sony EV-C3E Video 8 deck. An experienced technician might be able to break this down:

The output is obviously analogue and the signal produced out the Composite RCA out is a modulated frequency based on how the metal is stored on the magnetic tape. If I played a digital 8 tape in it (spits out noise), the output is STILL a modulated frequency based on how the metal is stored on the magnetic tape, only not in the expected patterns that produce video. If we knew HOW the output is affected by the digital patterns on a digital 8 tape, would it be possible to interpret the RCA out signal (using some kind of software, firmware, hardware) back into digital bits, which in turn could spit out whatever information we wanted? Of course this is difficult because of the way the video signals are modified within the deck circuitry.

In essence, the signal would be going through this:DIGITAL (on D8 tape) -> ANALOG (thru the deck circuitry, noise and crap) -> ANALOG (composite out, noise and crap) -> DIGITAL (hypothetical interpreter and Analog/Digital Converter).

In other words, to allow a Video 8 deck to be converted into a Digital 8 player, without expensive hardware. Just a thought!

Olive many many thanks for getting me those details but i truly am thick when it comes to this have you any ideas as to what i can do.I was informed it had not been used in a while i have run a cleaner through it and still it does the same the picture is very shaky and as i say this line goes through the picture.Is there anyone in the u.k. that repairs beta machines as i say i have been getting quite a few and these seem to be the main models for now.

For the most part tape is tape and there is not much in the way of 'worth' to them apart from their utility value. That being said, L-750s are marginally worth more because they're longer in length and thus you can get more time out of them.

Hey, does anyone know which one is better quality?...Worth more? The SONY Betamax L-500BTPro cassettes or the L-750BTPro Cassettes???

Thanks

I remember Dials. My grandparents had sets like that. My parents had a set that I think had dials, but we always had cable TV, and it had the coolest remote ever made. It was a wired remote about the size of a cigar box, and sort of "console shaped". It had a slider, which had a lamp on it that moved back and forth behind about 20 or so indicators for the channels, which included numbers and letters. You could rest the console-thing on the floor and work the slider with your feet. That was luxury at its highest.

Well back in the days when I couldn't afford cable TV and had to use a pair of expandable metal sticks to pull signals out of the air (paraphrasing from this ad for a cheapo set of rabbit-ears that made itself seem like something pulled off the space shuttle) I found that the reception was slightly better on channel 4.

It didn't help that the TV set I had had been tuned to channel 3 so long that every once in a while it would loose the signal and you had to get up, change the dial (remember TV 'dials'?) around and turn it back to 3 to get it back to normal;.

Well by me they don't seem to care, there are stations on 3 and 4. Just another reason to use the AV inputs for all important transactions. Back in the old days of the VTR/VCR when the RF unit was a commodity, they came in channels ranging from 2 through 6. I think there are stations on ALL of those, though... in my area, at least.

To Bill;

Audio and Video out on the Beta machine go to the Audio and Video in on the VHS machine. If the VHS machine doesn't automatically switch to A/V in when you put plugs in those jacks set the machine to A/V in.

If there are two A/V ins set to whichever one you've plugged the Beta's output into - A/V 1 is usually the back of the machine and A/V 2 usually is the plug set in front.

The VHS machine's Audio and Video output then go to the TV's A/V in jacks. Set the TV to A/V in (if your TV has front and back input set to the proper input).

If your TV only has antennae (RF) input then you hook the Antennae (RF) output of the TV to the TV's antennae jack. Turn the TV to channel 3 or 4 (most RF converters on VCRs are set to channel 3 but sometimes they get set to 4 either by accident or because there's a station on channel 3 or some other reason.)

In both cases check to see if the Beta VCR's playback is passing through to the TV set before attempting a recording on VHS. If not recheck connections.

After purchasing several Beta vcrs that turn out to be nonworking and have no repair parts available,I have these words of wisdom to pass along. If the seller says:1 It was working fine when I put in storage.2It belonged to my Aunt who hardly used it.3when I plug it and turn the power on,everything lights up4The description has glowing remarks about how good it is ,but says remember it is an old machine.5 Machine lights up but I have no Beta tape to check it out. IF ANY OF THE ABOVE ARE IN THE SELLERS DESCRIPTION---- RUN!!! ---DO NOT WALK AWAY

I am having trouble transferring my beta tapes to vhs tapes. I think I have the RCA cables and the antenae cables all hooked up right, but nothing is working. I get no picture and no sound of the vhs tape. Can someone tell me the proper setup of the cables from going to the beta machine to the vhs machine. Thanks in advance.
