Step 1 Connect the yellow Beta output cable to the yellow VHS
cable. Be alert to the labels marked "input" and "output."
Step 2 Plug the white Beta output cable into the white VHS input jack. If
either the yellow or white connections are missing, connect the Beta coaxial
RF output cable to the VHS coaxial RF input jack.
Step 3 Attach the VHS coaxial RF output cable to the TV. This allows for
monitoring the recording process by displaying it on the TV.
Step 4 Set the VHS VCR to "Auxiliary" or "Video In," if necessary. This
ensures the VHS will accept input from the audio visual connections. Test
the connections by playing a Beta tape in the Beta machine. It should
display on the TV screen.
Step 5 Insert the destination VHS tape into the VHS VCR.
Step 6 Place the source Beta tape in the Beta VCR.
Step 7 Press "Play" on the Beta VCR. Press "Record" on the VHS VCR.
The recording time will be the same as the length of the Beta tape.
Tips & Warnings
Save the Beta and VHS tapes. The magnetic tape inside has a longer lifespan
than a CD or DVD..Beta stereo sound will be lost if recording to a mono VHS
VCR..Many commercial companies transfer Beta tapes to VHS tapes, CDs or
DVDs. Prices vary depending on the length of the tapes. When hiring a firm
to transfer the tapes, get assurances that the original tapes will be returned
in good condition..Always follow the manufacturer's instructions for
operating a VCR
