Unable to view/record cable channels with Panasonic DMR EZ48V


Here is what you will need. This is assuming you do not have a HD cable box.

1) A two port cable splitter available at your local hardware or electronics store. VERY IMPORTANT- this splitter needs to pass up to 1000 mghz so you do not interfere with the functions of the cable box. Also, when purchasing this don't be fooled gold does not always equal good (a common mistake made by folks).

2) 1 small coax cable.

3) 3 Additional coax cables. (1 long enough to reach from the wall to the cable box. 1 long enough to reach from cable box to the TV. 1 long enough to reach from wall to the VCR. These cables should be RG6 coax cable (about the width of a standard wooden pencil)

4) 2 RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White)

Here is how you need to connect the cables....

1) Use the small coax cable and connect it from the WALL to the INPUT of the two way SPLITTER.

2) Use one of the coax cables and connect it to the OUTPUT of the SPLITTER. Connect the other end of this cable to the INPUT of the CABLE BOX.

3) Use one of the coax cables and connect it to the OUTPUT of the CABLE BOX to the INPUT of the TV.

4) Use one of the coax cables and connect it to the OUTPUT of the SPLITTER. Connect the other end of this cable to the INPUT of the VCR.

5) Use one of the RCA cables and connect to the DVD/VHS COMMON OUT on the VCR. Connect the other end of this cable to the VIDEO IN on the back of the TV.

6) Use the other RCA cable and connect it to the VIDEO OUT on the back of the CABLE BOX. Connect the other end to the IN 1 on the back of the VCR.

Here is how to set up the VCR-
1) Tune the TV to the video input that you connected the VCR to.

2) Go to the auto program in the menus for the VCR and select "CABLE" as the source and you should now be able to get all the channels you would normally get without the cable box.

3) This will give you the option to record shows from basic cable on the VCR. While copying these channels you will still be able to tune the TV to CH 3 for the cable box and watch TV normally through the cable box.

4) If you want to copy one of the channels that is only available with the cable box you will still be limited to only being able to watch that channel while it is recording but here is how you will do it.

  • Tune the CABLE BOX to the channel you want to record.
  • Tune the TV to the VIDEO INPUT you have the VCR connected to.
  • Select either VCR or DVR on the VCR.
  • Select recording mode.
  • Press the INPUT SELECT button.
  • Select IN 1.
  • Press RECORD.
Hope this has been helpful....

Good Luck....

Would like to record from my tv to my magnavox dvd/vcr combo box


If I understand your request right, You do not have cable or satellite box.
You can not record from your TV. You use the TV as a monitor from the dvd/vcr combo box. What the box receives is what shows on the TV. So you will have to have a digital convertor hooked to the (antenna in) dvd/vcr combo box, (antenna out to the tv antenna in) Depending on the antenna you are using that is on the other end of your cable-in coax connection this will hook to your antenna in on the digital convertor box. If your cable is hooked up and operating correctly and directly to the tv that is digital ready you probabbly have a good picture. When the vhf/uhf signal was transmitted you could go from the dvd/vcr to the tv with no problem. But now that the signal is digital and the tv is set for digital the dvd/vcr will not pass a digital signal to the tv. Best suggestion, you have to get a digital dvd/vcr receiver. If you have more question please contact me.

Recording cable channels while warching other channels


To be able to watch one, record another, you have to split the cable when it comes into the house. Have one input go directly into the TV and the other into the Cable Box. Then hook the cable box to the DVD, then to the 2nd input of the TV. You will have to switch back & forth from your TV video inputs, rather than switching at either the DVD or Cable Box.

Connecting VCR to TV


Oh man dont shoot your stuff instead use your remote and go to your menu and select your input. You tv is looking at your coaxial input but you can select which input you want. 1, 2 front back whatever you need. channell 3 or 4 has nothing to do with connecting up your dvd if you connect and choose the front connection in your menu.

DVD/VCR Combo


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)
