Record TV Shows From a Satellite Dish?
 
Hello, I wanted to know if there is anybody that knows how to record TV shows to a VHS from a satellite dish (like Dish Network) or any other...

Thanks

Hi LeeKuid,

That's very simple :)
Connect an S-Video cable from your Satellite receiver's S-Video OUT connector to your VHS recorder's S-Video IN connector, and connect the audio cable (red and white RCA plugs on the ends) from the receiver to the VHS recorder.
That's it :!:

Karl,
If your VHS recoder has a S-VHS outlet, then it is a... S-VHS recoder.

Very few people have this.

Hi Phil,

You sure about that :?:
I think some regular VHS recorders do have both S-Video and RCA inputs.
I could be wrong, because my VHS is not that old and has both, but I can't remember if the old recorders I had before did have S-Video inputs :mrgreen:

Then they have to include a S-VIDEO -> Composite convertor and I don't think this exist on the market.

Do remember that VHS use one wire for all the signals where S-VHS use two.

Yes, but that's simply to carry chroma/luma on different wires on the S-Video connector.
S-Video is really a baseband analog video format
That has nothing to do with VHS or S-VHS.

Of course it has.
In S-VHS, luma and chroma are recorded separately, in two different layers of the magnetic tape.
If you play a S-VHS tape in a VHS vcr, it will play it in black and white because it can't read the chroma info that is deeper in the material.
