The supplied cable from the camcorder which ends in 3 coloured jack plugs - red white and yellow which are plugged into the AV3 input terminal on the front of the recorder.
OK, have you tried to select AV3 input in DVD recorder to get camcorder playback picture on TV?
Please reply back with the result.
You were right. In the Panasonic DVD instructions it said select DV input ,which does not work. Also, on the input display there is no AV3 - only A3 - quite misleading when you are trying to follow exactly.
But now the record button is responding and when the DVD is fully recorded and I press finalise - only then will I know if it has really worked. And that won't be till tomorrow as it is getting late. So I reserve the right to come back to you if it has not worked! Thanks so far. Peter
