Blu Ray Player through a DVD recorder
I have a Samsung Blu Ray Player, and connected the AV (RCA) cable through my Panasonic DVD Recorder. On playing the Blu Ray disk i have no video, only broken sound. I connected the BR player direct to the TV via HDMI and plays ok. If I connect it by AV (RCA) cable again to the TV the Blu Ray plays OK. Why wont the Blu Ray play via RCA to the TV through the recorder? I play my iPad movies via RCA without a problem.
I'm not entirely clear which type of cable you are referring to when you say you are connecting with an AV (RCA).
Is it a yellow RCA connection (for composite video - which usually has an accompanying red and white RCA for stereo sound) - or a component video RCA connection which has red, green and blue connectors?
Either way, one thing to consider is that these days most HD video signals that you can play from a Blu-ray player will be copy-protected. This means you may have a problem connecting them to any device which is recordable. This is to stop people making copies of high-quality digital video. Therefore, you may be limited by the copy protection as to the ways which you can connect your devices together.
I would have thought you would be ok with a composite connection (yellow RCA), but you may have a problem with the higher quality component interface.
It might not be this, but is something you could consider.
Hope that helps.
