Hello everyone. Recently a few weeks ago, I bought myself an LG 32' LCD TV (model number 32lc7d). I bought the TV because of its "A/V out" capabilities (which is what the Aiptek PVRuses to record videos from the television). Anyway, I hook up my ps3 to my tv using Composite cables (red-white-yellow) andI hook up my camcorder. I get a signal from the TV on my camcorder just fine. The only problemthen was videogame lag on the TV (most HDTVs do this). So I take it upon myself to go to Best Buy and buy an HDMI cable for my PS3 and TV (the tv has 2 hdmi inputs). So I bring the HDMI cable home, excited to try it out on the new TV, right? I hook the HDMI cable up to my TV and ps3 and everything works! Woohoo! Now that the videogame lag is eliminated, I can finally record what I wanted to do ever since I bought the TV - videogame movies. This is where my problem lies. I hook up the camcorder via A/V out on my TV and my PS3 is hooked up via HDMI. On the camcorder, I get sound, BUT NO VIDEO SIGNAL! Now, this strikesme as strange because supposedly, the audio and video are together in the A/V out port (and the A/V out port issupposedly separate from HDMI). I get audio on my camcorder but NO VIDEO SIGNAL???? Does ANYONE know how I can get video on my Aiptek PVR from an HDMI signal using the A/V out port on my tv??????? Is there a solution to this problem? Has anyone experienced this problem? Many thanks to anyone who can provide input on this issue! Thanks everyone!

I do not bother with the tv output on a tv,what I do I go through the vcr.

1 ps3 has an output try utilizing those cables. did you try that?

2. did you try avcr or even dvd method, sometimes you need the vcr video in/output on?

the trouble you have I ask, thesupport center of th tv you bought? wish I have the answer for you but again welcome?

Could be the content protection on the HDMI, is their an option to turn it off for unprotected content.

If you really want the best, go to:


The $349 version records component/av as well. If your PS3 sets HDMI content protection on it won't be able to record it through HDMI though.
