VCR uses coaxial



Hi everyone, 

I hope someone can help as I have been trying to troubleshoot this myself for the last week. I ordered a VCR on ebay and it only has a coaxial video output in the back. As you know, the roxio device requires S-Video. How do I make this work? I ordered a coaxial to RCA adapter, and then used an RCA to S-Video adapter but that must be too many links or something because it didn't work. I can only hear and not see my home videos. As far as VCR's go, it's not even that "old" looking so I feel like if I order another VCR I might run into this problem. I don't want my home videos to just be lost forever but don't know what else to do. Any suggestions or am I banging my head against a wall for nothing, and I need to just go and find a different VCR?

I also tried getting one of those coaxial adapter "boxes" but turns out it was just for audio. Perhaps I purchased the wrong kind. I really miss the days where there was radio shack or something and I could bring my vcr with me and get help on the spot. :) Hoping there is someone here with such knowledge. 

Thank you!

The Roxio device does not "require" a S-Video connector you can also use composite (yellow,red and white) cable. Since you ordered the coaxial-to-composite adapter, then you are ready to go. Doesn't that VCR have composite output?

What is the make/model of the VCR? Have you read the Manual on how to hook up the components?

Use the Composite cord.... the Yellow (video)/Red&White (audio) one.

Just like it shows in your picture. Just plug it into your Roxio unit.

Have a look at the Roxio manual  https://support.corel.com/hc/en-us/articles/216842797-Getting-Started-Guide-for-Easy-VHS-to-DVD 

How did you miss the cord hanging out the back  ;)

Here is a video
