Re: Cable connections for the BetacamSP 1800 to AJA Kona LHe

This might be confusing if you are a beginner. The "Y IN" cable goes to the "Y Out" on the VTR. Some people see the cable say "Y IN" and say "oh, that goes to the Y input of the VTR". This is incorrect. "Y IN" on the cable is the input to the card, and goes to the "Y Out" of the VTR. Same applies to Pb (B-Y on the Beta) and Pr (R-Y on the Beta).

If you have a component TV, stick the Out Y Pb Pr from the AJA Kona into your TV, and see if you can make a picture (like color bars with the test pattern from FCP). Then take the three remaining cables (IN Y Pb Pr) and plug these into the OUTPUT of your Beta VTR. Switch the AJA Control Panel from Test Pattern to INPUT PASSTHRU, and you should see your VTR playing back.
