Check the input switch on the front of the UVW-1800 and make sure it's correctly set. Should be set to S-Video, also menu setting should have the machine in "EE" and you may have to press the record button to actually see video pass through. Don't forget to also set the audio input switches on the back of the deck to the 600 setting.

I have done this numerous times with no issues. I also hook up the video out and I take it into the Ref Video In. It syncs the video so the picture does not roll during recording.
