      I have a JVC MG-155Uhard disk camcorder with an A/V port thatcan switch between input and output. When a cable is connectedto A/Vwhile Analog Input is enabled, the camera attempts to getinput (audio and video) through the A/V source.

      What I want to do is get audio inputthrough an external microphone while recording video through the camera.Unfortunately, my camcorder does not have a microphone jack. Are there any cables or special attachments that allow me to receive only audio through A/V?

      I doubt it, but most microphones use XLR connections. So you’d look for an XLR to RCA adapter.

      Thanx for the info, but I don’t think an XLR to RCA converter alone will help.

      My camera does not have an RCA jack, so I’ll need something that will convert A/V to RCA that will also allow the camcorder to recordvideowhile recording audio from an external source.

      Yes, buy a cam with a XLR Audio Input and be done with it

      could of figured that out myself.

      I guess all I’m looking for is an A/V to RCA converter, but I’m not quite sure that this will allow recording camera video with external audio.

      ** Thank you all for your help.
