I had the same problem with the dvd/vcr and my tv not communicating with each other even though they were plugged up correctly. I called the manufacturer phone # on the instruction manual. What they told me to do is strange, but it worked. They said to switch the bottom "in" yellow connector to the bottom "out".....and plug the bottom "out" yellow connector into the bottom "in". It worked on mine. Hope this helps.

What kind of TV do you have? If it only has an RF input on your TV you will have to get an RF modulator from Radio Shack or another electronics outlet or from Amazon or other electronics supplier on the internet. Plug the Yellow Video and Red and White audio outputs from the back of the Magnavox into the RF modulator and the RF output from the modulator into your TV.
This model only has an RF Pass through. I have one of these zv450mw8a sets also and an older TV with only an RF input.
There are not many VHS/DVD recorders wit tuners that have an RF modulator built in any more.

Magnavox dual model dvd/vcr model ZV450MW8A keeps showing error code 45 when trying to record from sat.


This is a problem with the satellite box it has copy protection for certain programs. The only way to find a solution for this problem is to call their technical help and see if they have a work around filter or release code. The error you are seeing is listed your owners manual as a copy protection error. This is on page 43 of the manual. There is no work around yet published on the internet. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

I Have been trying to dubb VHS tapes to DVD''s. They record alright, but then when I go to play them on another DVD player they won't play...how do I get them to finalize? I have went through the menu and...


--- for some reason this unit does not finalize automatcally.

--- the instructions for finallizing are on page 52 of the owners manual.

--- they are as follows:

1) Press Setup

2) Scroll down, select "Disc Edit", press "OK"

3) Scroll down, select "Finalize", press "OK"

4) Select "Yes", press "OK"

Finalizing will start.

--- have done this operation several times, works Ok.

Magnavox ZV450MW8A can't record


Just set the channel to a non-premium channel (ABC, CBS, PBS, etc.) before starting the dubbing process.
