Just a quick question, is there a way to connect the Nextbox 3.0 to a VCR successfully and get a decent picture? I am not expecting it to be HD or anything, just good enough to watch back & save if I want to add to my collection.
I used the yellow, white & red 3 connectors, and it got me a picture & the sound, was able to record but the picture had tons of interference, not unwatchable but sort of annoying if it was something I would have liked to have kept. I know obviously the Nextbox is a PVR, and it records & saves shows, but I was looking for something a little more permanent and being able to keep for personal use, and was hoping my VCR could still be useful in that way.
Anyways, hoping someone will help me or let me know what I can do to improve what I am attempting to do here.
It's not Infront of me.. But I beleive the nb3 has hdmi, composite (red blue green), and the yellow composite.
That in general, should work... Possibly.
Most people don't realize though, that VCRs do have stuff built into them to detect copy protection on things. Prevented daisy chaining vcrs to pirate legit movies. It's possible that the nb3 is outputting a form of CP that the VCR is picking up and scrambling. (I know they output HDCP on the HDMI)
Thanks guys, I appreciate your answers. I taped a show Friday night via my VCR, jiggled the wires a bit, quality improved a little. Looks like I will have to be satisfied with that for now. Thanks again! 🙂
