Hi, you want to copy a VHS tape to another VHS tape if i get you correctly?

Yes you can copy that way, unless you have commercial tape to copy as in that case the unit will mess the picture because of the build in copy protection, a special box is then needed between the two unit).

If those are just home tape, you simply have to connect the video out output of one into the AV1 input of the other. You also no longer have a single button start operation like with internal VCR to DVD copy, you need to start manually both unit at the same time (one playing and the other recording. Always try to start the playing one a little before the recording one to let the auto tracking the time to stabilize.
