Just pick up an old used VCR that has a tuner built in. Only the very new ones don't have them (due to the DTV switch coming up in February).

You can hook up a converter box to your old VCR. You won't be able to program but you can record. If you want to program you can use one of the newer recorders that doesn't have a tuner and use the old vcr and converter as a tuner.

No sound on the tv


As TV and DVD playing reproduces sound, you have to check TVs tuner function first. Connect the TV to external areal by connecting areal via areal socket. Make an auto-tune function. Refer the user manual about how to make an auto-tune to local on-air program. Make sure that, the TV reproduces picture and sound normally. If it is correct, your TV is perfect in all respect. If not, the tuner to your TV should be replaced with same type and number.

We have a Samsung Smart TV. We cannot get the signal and have installed a Digital Satellite Receiver. We have a Magnavox VCR and a sony DVD Player. We owuld like to attache the same to our TV and watch...


Hi there,

Depending on your Satellite receiver's output type (i.e. HDMI or Component - Red, Green, Blue) you should connect to your tv's appropriate external inputs. Example: if you choose to connect the receiver via HDMI, then you use the SOURCE button on your tv and select the correct HDMI input you have connected your device to. If connected by Component (Red, Green, Blue) then use the SOURCE button to select the correct Component input, and so on.

Note: HDMI is the best connection type - you won't be able to access your receiver from the tv's built in tuner.

As above explanation, your VCR and DVD devices should be connected to your tv in the same manner - unless it is a combo unit (VCR & DVD in one), in which case this device can be tuned into your chosen tv channel (via the tv's tuner).

Note: if you have one of the latest SMART tv's, it should already have a built-in "Hi Definition" tuner which will allow you to watch free digital tv broadcast (DVB).

Hope this helps...

No signal when turned on


There is a plain screen only in your TV we things. If so tuner of your tv has damaged. It should be replaced with an identical type. To ensure that the the suspected item is tuner, give your tv an external video from any source like dvd player;VCR, CD player if there is an audio video input sockets exists in your tv, and switch the tv in AV mode with remote control.
If the video of the external source is Ok, surely the tuner is the suspected one. Replacing it will solve the problem.

Need to know if I can record from dvd to vcr on a magnavox ZV420MWB vcr/dvd combo


Magnavox ZV420MWB VCR/DVD Combo
The answer is YES YOU CAN! Take advantage of one-touch recording from videotapes to DVD+/-R and RW discs or from DVDs to VHS tapes. A variety of different inputs also let you record from compatible camcorders, external TV tuners or cable boxes.

CONSUMER ALERT: This model does not have a built-in tuner for recording TV programs and will not record copy-protected tapes or discs. For more information, call the Federal Communications Commission at 1-888-225-5322 (TTY: 1-888-835-5322) or visit the Commission's digital television website at: www.dtv.gov.

Dvd/vcr combo


I'l make sure, but I beleave L1 and L2 are inputs. You need to select the one where the show comes from, Its it coming from the L1 connector or L2.

Your device doesn't have a tuner input jack. To record TV programs on your DVD/VCR, you need to connect this DVD/VCR to an external tuner device (e.g., set top box, cable box or satellite receiver) that has audio/video output jacks.

Il confirm this and reply to you in a moment.

Can tune mitsubishi HS-651V video player/recorder to watch TV.


Hi Jaco, Have you fed in your Antenna / cable into the Rear of the VCR? And if your VCR has a Input selection switch, just check input to Tuner. You will get Blue screen if input selction is not Tuner but Camera / External source. If this does not solve your problem, then there is no Input selection happening.
