No i am n ot trying to record from the EZ48
Yes i first initally fed line out from LCD TV (red white yellow) to front (r,w,y) on EZ48 and the rear output from EZ48 (r,w,y) was fed to another CRT TV. I know thiss sounds weird but please read on. Before pressing the record button on EZ48, i can see that the EZ48 is passing colour TV through to CRT TV so i know the LCD is outputting colour fine. Press record and it does not record in colour to VHS in EZ48.
I have also connected LCD TV line out direct to CRT line in with EZ48 out the chain. colour displays fine.
Ok now forget at above. I take the LCD TV with its line out, out of the equation, removed from chain.
I have the EZ48's rear line out connected to CRT TV how you typically would.
I connected set top box r,w,y to front of EZ48. Press record......it does not record in colour to VHS in EZ48.
In basic terms, just imagine anything connected to the front inputs of the EZ48, could be another VCR or a camcorder. It wont record that to VHS in colour. That is basics of it. Try to ignore what i was initally doing with LCD TV line out etc because i proved that had nothing to do with it when i simply tried to record from a set top box line out to line in on the EZ48. That was just part of the story that lead me to teh discovery when i was in a rush to record a show so i quickly just connected the line out from LCD to EZ48 as a quick way to make a recording because i did not have time to swap around RF line direct to rear of EZ48.
The EZ48 will record to VHS in colour when i record internally to it from the inbuilt tuner.
The problem, if there is one is completely to do with the EZ48.
So can anyone record in colour to VHS from line inputs on EZ48?
