    Hy, well its been about 15years ago that I did this.
    Connecting 2 VCRs to play on 1 & record on the other. This was to copy
    my own made vhs tapes to another Tape.

    I can not remember how I did this . It was either using 2 rca sockets
    or via the RF socket where the antenna would normally go. If anyone has
    any diagrams or can explain in detail how its done ,please let me know.

    -------------------------

    Thank u very much, I tried with the typical 3 wire method 1st,but no luck because it has only one set of inputs on my target recorder.
    Som as soon as I get a second rf cable I can try the rf method.

    Also I am interested in the DV recordings method after reading some posts here.
    I have always wondered about the Dv socket, because its sometimes also
    revered to as firewire.

    I want to transfer my vhs tapes to DVD, but my standalone vhs/dvd recorder combo does not allow for transfers .

    I have a firewire socket on my acer notebook, and I have the same socket on my vhs/dvd recorder(called DV), so if I connect this ,would I see the vhs cassette play on my notebook ?

    I am not sure if the DV and firewire sockets are for inputs or outputs
    , do I need to install that speacial software or can any of my other
    softwares that have "record from capturing device" be able to do
    that ?

    No, the firewire port on your VCR/DVD Recorder would be for input. For example if you wanted to hookup your camcorder to your DVD recorder to burn a DVD.
