I have a dvd/vcr rrecorder with no coaxial connection. How can I tape or record a TV program?


Hi,first of all I assume that your Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player has the recording features as well..othervise you cant do anything"NEGATIVE" ..If yes than follow the procedure below..
If you want to record your TV program while watching to your DVD/VCR system you need to connect "Video - Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV or CABLE box to "Audio-Video input or "Optic Cable input" of the DVD
There you go..Your TV's video and sound is on the
DVD/VCR Dual Player Receiver..of course your DVD source input should correspond with the jacks you used on the back...push "RECORD" button it should start for recording the coming signal into DVD
when you recording the output RCA jacks of DVD will generate the signal of whatever records that can be monitored with another TV set after properly connected..
Take care and please

Connections


I believe that you simply need a splitter from your cable line from the wall to the items that need it.

That will give you input to the DVD-R and to the Cable box.

Let me know if we need to discuss further, I will be glad to help!

The VCR works fine but I only get audio with the DVD


Hello,
  • Are you using an AV cord between your VCR and TV or a standard coax? If you are using a standard coax then first make sure the tape is functioning properly. Next try a new coax and if the problem persist there might be an issue with the coax output/input on the VCR or TV itself.

  • If you are using the AV inputs (red,white and yellow) you want to remember that the red and white are for audio and the yellow is for video. So in this case you want to
  1. Make sure the tape is functioning correct. Old tapes that have seen their better days will produce audio but no video and vice versa.
  2. Check the connection of your yellow AV input (audio). Make sure it goes from the same output on your VCR to the same input on your TV as the audio cords are running to.
  3. If this checks out then try a different audio cord and see if this fixes it.
  4. If not then try using a different output on the VCR and input on the TV all together.
  5. At this point it is possible one of the AV audio jacks are bad either on the VCR or on the TV.

How do I hook up dvd to tv


If your TV has the standard analog audio and video inputs (yellow, red and white jacks) or for better image (S-Video rounded 4 pin jack or component video red, blue and green jacks), you'll only need the corresponding cables, and also your TV could have HDMI port (digital video and audio signals), you should use this connection, all depends of what type of outputs provide your DVD/VCR, in the case your TV set doesn't has any of mentioned inputs, you still could use the antenna input and connect its matching output from DVD/VCR , tuned at VHF channel 3 or 4.

Cable connection part broke off in back


Are you talking about the part that connects the cable from the wall to the tv? I do not really understand which part on tv or vcr. It is true you can use the vcr as the tuner. You still have to connect the cable from the wall to the input cable jack on back of vcr. Then you hookup the R/W/Y rca plug- in cable from the back vcr output jacks (which are also color coded) to the tv's jacks. If you only have two jacks on the tv they will probably red and black. It doesn't really matter. Go from your video output on the vcr to the video input of tv, then use one of the audio outputs on vcr and go to the audio input on tv. It should work like that.

Copying dvd to vhs


  1. Locate the output jacks DVD player. Sometimes they are standard female RCA A/V jacks, like those found on the front of many VCRs. Others are more tricky, having a small jack that looks like a stereo headphones plug. These camcorders require a special cord that converts a 1/8" stereo signal into RCA A/V male plugs.
  2. Using the proper cord, connect your PLAYER to the VCR's RCA A/V input jacks, usually found on the front or back of your VCR.
  3. Turn on your VCR and TV, so you can see the input from the camcorder. You might have to select "Input 1/2", "Line 1/2", or "VIDEO" depending on your VCR model. You should now see whatever is on your camcorder displayed on your television.
  4. Press "Record" on your VCR, then press "Play" on your camcorder. That's it!

your model is "tuner free" that means it does not have the RF screw in connector. Buy one that has a tuner, preferably both ATSC(USA digital) and NTSC(USA analog)

How to hook up vhs to dvd to tv.I dont have any instructions books vhs is old type VR6548/75L


Does your VHS have av jacks on it?
If so, connect the av jacks (red, yellow, white) from the output of the VCR to the input of the DVD and then from the output of the DVD to the input on the TV.
This will only work if you have input on the DVD. Recordable DVD players do, but a lot of the older ones don't.
Good Luck.
