    Can i record my TV HDMI Input using the AV output

    Hello,
    i Have a Sony KDL40W4000 tv. its a hdtv .

    I have my ps3 and cable feeding into it through HDMI and i was wondering if I could record these HD inputs using the AV (Scart) out which this tv has?

    I know that if it were to work that the recordings wouldn't be HD.

    But the question is WILL IT WORK?

    No, I don't actually have any recording equipment except my V+ Box. so before I go out and buy a dvd recorder or capture card I'm trying to find out if it will work.

    I have looked around the web and haven't found the answer.

    Doubt it, the AV will probably only be video in rather than video out which is what you would need

    What about a scart to phono, I have one with about 8 phonos on it. I reckon the scart from the tv and then using the video out one might work?

    I'm interested in trying it myself. I might get a video out of the loft later:)

    If the phono end still goes into the tv it is still video/audio in

    I think for it to work the TV would have to be capable of converting the video from HD to SD.

    And i don't think TV's are capable at the moment?

    Probably answered my own question there.

    But would be interested to know if you manage to get it to work!

    Yeah I have looked at these and have all the cables and the easy cap in my Amazon basket waiting.
    But until I get an answer as to whether it will output the Signal through the AV out I wont buy.

    the av out will only be for the freeview. not anything else.

    Is your AV the scart on your tv? If so you would need a scart to phono adaptor as well. then it would work.

    Just to be clear.
