  1. Turn off all devices before starting the connections.

  2. Connect the supplied MTC-100 Multi Cable to the camcorder's AV terminal and the audio terminals on the TV or VCR.
    - Connect the white plug to the white audio terminal L (left) and the red plug to the red audio terminal R (right).

  3. Connect the MTC-100 Multi Cable to the video terminal on the TV or VCR.
    -
    If your TV or VCR has an S-VIDEO or (S1)-VIDEO input, connect the black plug to the S(S1)-VIDEO terminal and do not connect the yellow plug. Otherwise, connect the yellow plug to the yellow video terminal (VIDEO).

  4. If connecting to a TV, set the input selector to VIDEO. If connecting to a VCR, set the input selector to LINE.

  • We recommend powering the camcorder from a household outlet.
  • Picture quality is better when connecting to a TV with an S (S1) terminal.
  • TVs with S1 terminals or Video ID1 systems: Recordings made in Widescreen will automatically be played back in the appropriate (16:9) screen aspect ratio.
