My dad has a Hitachi VM-E58A camcorder, its probably ten years old, but we cannot figure out how to, after recording something, play the tape to show on the television. The tapes are not even half the size of a regular VHS tape, so we cannot play it in a VCR, but it comes with an adapter. The adapter plugs into the camcorder, and has a little box that has an "out to tv" and an "in from ant" along with a switch to change from channel 3 to channel 4. The cable it came with needs to be hooked into the back of the TV, so we just bought a video adapter that can allow for connection into the front of the TV where the red, white and yellow RCA cables go. The lady at RAdio Shack said that you wont have sound, but you plug it into the video jack on the tv, and voila. We tried all of this, but there is no picture. My question is, how do we hook this up to get a picture on the TV?? We have the cable hooked currently on the adapter "out to TV" and the other end contains the video adapter and this is plugged into the front of the TV, the yellow "video" connection. Thanks for any information you can give us.
