How to record gameplay with a DVD recorder?

8 replies 836 views Edited Jan 26, 2010

So I just got a DVD recorder (Sadly there is no HDMI output or input) and I was wondering how I can capture gameplay with it. 

I set it up but something is wrong.

 

Here's what I did:

- I took my double sided composite cables and plugged one end into the output of the DVD recorder and the other end into the AV2 input of my HDTV.

- Then I took my PS3's composite cable and plugged it into the input of the DVD recorder. I switch to channel AV2 and all I get is the DVD recorder's menu not the PS3's (The    PS3 was on)

- I still had my HDMI cable plugged in as well from my HDTV to the PS3 so i went to channel HDMI4 and that was where the PS3 menu screen was. I went to display settings and I chose AV/ Multi Cart and then I selected the option above RGB. The screen went blank so I went back to channel AV2 and it had a PS3 screen saying I had 30 seconds to keep these settings. I pressed Ok and another menu appeared telling me to select all the supported resolutions my TV has. There were only 2 resolutions. One was the standard one which is automatically check and the other was 480p. I checked 480p as well. Then I scroll to the right and a blank screen appears for 30 seconds and the menu appears again (The resolution choice menu) After that happened I was lost and confused. If i press the PS button it will say that if i exit the settings will not be saved. So what do I do?

 

Hope this isn't confusing!

 

Plus, I tried doing this with the Wii and PS2 and everything worked out fine.

Yes it is possible people do it on youtube. I saw a tutorial on how to set it up but the guy didn't show how to setup the display settings. And i can't get a capture card.

Yeah, it's easy.

I have a Philip's DVR with a 160GB HDD.

PS3 Analog outputs into the DVR,

DVR Comp. Out to the TV.

Edit and Burn.
