First off, as a VERY new newbie it's been an education to read through the forums here. Thanks to them I have successfully converted avi to MPEG AND resynchronised the audio - using AudioDub and TMPGEnc before burning with Nero. However, although the VCDs play OK in my standalone DVD player (Pioneer) I'd like to know why I can't record the VCD onto VHS tape successfully - it records in black & white only, though the VCD plays in colour through my t.v. I've tried connecting through SCART, SVHS and RCA. I've connected directly between DVD and VCR and through my tv (Sony) - it makes no difference. Any ideas anyone?
