    Most camera/camcorder cameras don't allow the video signal to come in. It most likely only goes out. If it does allow for the signal to come in, most of the time it's through an adapter for the camera. Check the camera manual for video in/out and see what it says and if you need to purchase the adapter.

    If no adapter is needed then maybe you have to set your camera to VCR mode then hit record to see if that opens up the signal.

    i don't be conscious of if those digital cameras are any diverse, yet when I owned a VHS form camcorder, filming of the television demonstrate became interupted with the aid of waves flowing down the television, making it stressful to make out.
