I hooked up my JVC DVD Recorder/video cassette recorder to my new digital TV, and when I hook it up according to the manual, I cannot access my digital stations. Probably because the recorder is analog. I tried using a cable splitter, but I don't think it is right either. Any ideas?

Re: JVC DCD Recorder hookup to digital TV
Yep, this recorder is NTSC analog. Sad, too - it was only manufactured in 2006 - they knew about the digital transition then. There is a possible workaround, but it depends on your TV - if your TV has a red, white AND (most importantly) yellow OUT/OUTPUT, then you can hook it to the AV IN on the back of the JVC and record from TV that way. Note: most TV's (even new ones) do not have the yellow video/monitor OUT, even if they have red and white audio OUT's.

just hooked up with an rca cable from the output jack ( audio/video ) of your dvd recorder then the other end connect to the input jack of the tv. then set your tv at the same time the dvd player to record.
I read the instruction manual one more time. It said to tune my TV to Video and voila, the VCR worked. All JVC VCR's seem to need the tv tuned to Video to play back. I had an older JVC VCR and I had to do the same thing with it. Thanks anyway.
New HD tv. Have digital cable box connected to tv., cable box connected to DVD recorder, but can't get setup menu to come up on tv screen. I had a similar problem. I have a HD tv connected to a digital cable box. I hooked up the DVD recorder with the wires it came with, but it would not play or give me the menu. However it was correctly hooked up. So the next day I connected a HDMI wire from the DVD recorder to the tv and everything works now.
No VCR required - A VCR is a video cassette recorder, which requires a video cassette in order to record source material. A DVD recorder, requires DVD discs and this model in particular has a built in hard drive so you don't even need discs either, unless you plan to share recordings with others. All you need is a 'feed' / 'source' from an external aerial like Cable or Sky etc.
Does that help?
use a video splitter for the audio and video, or go out of the DVD player in to the DVR, out of the DVR into the TV (WARNING!!!! Trying to hook a DVD player to any recording device may trigger the copyright protection, causing blue flashes, and distorted pictures)
Though Connection details are available in DVD recorder User Manual, yet here is procedure. Find Video Audio Out terminal on Cassette Recorder SLV-SE610G and hook Yellow-Red-White cable in matching color pins and other end of cable will hook in Video Audio Input terminals at DVD Recorder RDR-GX3 and please note, same color pins will be hooked. Insert desired VHS cassette in VCR and push Playback. select input source at DVD Recorder and confirm playback picture and sound of vcr at TV. Now system is ready to record VHS movie on DVD.

You will have to hook up your recorder directly to your TV or use as a stand alone recorder.
Other possibility is to buy a 2 way video switch. This will allow you to hook up two video machines to the same input jacks on the RCVR. You just swith between the two devices manually.
Radio Shack usually have these input swithches under $30.
I take it this is a recorder only model not one with hard drive.
I guess it will be line out from PC to line in on the recorder
The recorder probably has RCA red/white cords
So you will need a 3.5mm stereo jack to RCA converter this will work on the PC either way line out for trans to DVD line in for form DVD to PC
