Instructions

  1. 1

    Check that your VCR/DVD recorder has an "Input" label on the back panel or under a flip-down panel on the front. Not all combo players have the necessary input to attach composite video plugs. If your combo player doesn't have this input, you will not be able to attach a digital video stabiliser.

Tips and warnings

  • Connect the digital video stabiliser between your VCR or DVD player and the recording DVD/VCR recorder.
  • Copy only DVDs and VHS tapes whose content you own. A digital video stabiliser removes copy protection from professional VHS tapes and DVDs. Creating copies of professional DVDs or VHS tapes violates copyright law per United States Code Section 1201(a)(1) title 17.
