Make and Model of each DVD unit please.
Okay, you can't have the recorder record "through" the TV- the PLAY unit must be hooked directly to the RECORD unit- then the record unit is connected to the TV.
How you would record is to plug the Red,White and Yellow RCA "Output" jacks on the ILO, to the Red,White and Yellow "Input" jacks on the Sony. This sends the signal from the Ilo to the Sony to be able to record.
Then you will monitor the recording on the TV by connecting the Sony's Red,White and Yellow "OUTPUTS" to the TV- and select that as the source.
Do you need further assistance with this?
What you are doing wrong is connecting Red,Yellow and White to "component out" since component is 5 RCA jacks.
Plug those cables into "AV IN" and MATCH the colors.
No worries, let me know what you find.
Yes, just the way you had it.
Yes, but I have to step away so will opt out- which simply opens the question to other experts to assist. You can reply back at any time.
Hi. If you have B&W it is because like Aric said that you used the component instead of the composite. That said the Sony only have a composite IN (yellow red white) and no component IN. That mean that you need to use composite to composite. I never have luck to find ILO documentation (always like that with store brand) so i don't know how they labeled the composite output but on the Sony they call that output "line out".
Note that the copy made that way is analog and not digital, that mean that you will suffer a quality loss just like a copy from a VCR tape to another VCR tape. To copy without loss, a computer with a DVD recorder can be used. You only need one by copying a disk image to the computer and then copying the disk image to a blank disk.
