I just bought the 47LG70 hdtv. A co-worker gave me a JVC VHS/DVD recorder combo (but no cables). Before I buy cables, a few questions, please.
The VHS/DVD recorder has HDMI, composite, component, and S-video connections. I believe if this were a DVD recorder only, then only the HDMI connection would be used between the player & hdtv.
But if I want to watch or record from VHS tapes, would I need connections besides the HDMI? For example, would I also need component or S-video connections, along with the HDMI?
I wonder if the VHS/DVD recorder converts the analog VHS signals to digital, then sends it as a digital signal to the tv via the HDMI connection...
...just thinking out loud. Anyone know?
