can’t help unless we know how you got from the TV into the camcorder. However, assuming you mean you recorded onto a TV with internal hard drive recorder, and then went out to the camcorder using composite video – I’d bet your guess is spot on – however you say you can get it to play but not record? You mean you can see it on the camcorder screen but the record button won’t work? This suggests a copy protect flag of some kind – but could easily just be that (if you were in the UK) your camcorder will not record from it’s line input. Frequently a feature disabled in the UK. We need more info.
