THIS RECORDER DOES NOT HAVE A TUNER BUILT-IN. YOU MUST RUN IT FROM "AV" INPUTS INSTEAD.

I have the Zenith XBV443. I'm trying to copy saved programs from my dvr on my tv to dvd discs. My neighbor has a simular model yet we can't find out why I'm unable to do the same. What do you think is the...


Hi there,

The Zenith player/recorder will be able to record to DVD from an external input such as a PVR. The most likely reasons you are unable to record successfully are:

1. The TV / DVR is not connected to the Zenith recorder correctly. You need a separate cable for recording. You cannot record using the cable that is connected for playback of DVD discs.
2. The TV / DVR does not have "VIDEO OUT" sockets
3. You have not selected the correct external input on the Zenith recorder

If you can let me know the brand and model number of your TV / DVR and how it is connected to the Zenith DVD recorder, I can let you know why it isn't working, how to make it work, and even draw you a setup diagram, if required. It's very difficult to give you the correct answer without these details.

You Zenith DVD recorder will record from the DVR - the real question is, can the DVR send video to the Zenith DVD recorder . . . ?

Regards,
BElectric

Unable to record from tv


I have the same problem and I called Zenith for support. I was told that the ZBR716 does NOT have a "tuner", so the only way you can record what is on TV is if, and only if, the TV has OUTPUTS (3 connectors), which could be connected to the ZBR716's inputs. But then you could only record what is currently being watched on TV. You could not record and watch something else, or set up to record something at a particular time on a particular channel, because the TV has to be on.

Unfortunately, I didn't look into this until some time after I bought the unit, so I can't return it. I was told to get a VCR/DVD recorder WITH a tuner.

I, too, had a VCR with a separate coax connection for the incoming cable tv,and it worked like your other one did.

My fault for not looking into it sooner, Circuit City's fault for selling me something when I was very specific about what I wanted and what I wanted to do with it.

you can call zenith yourself, go to www.zenith.com and hit the support page and eventually you'll find the phone number.

good luck.

How do I connect my dvd recorder xbr716 to the television?


Tiene tu televisor entradas de audio y video,si las tiene no hay mucha dificultad para conectarlo,el aparato trae unos cables rca con diferente color rojo blanco y amarillo, el rojo y el blanco los vas a poner en las salidas (outputs) de audio del dvd las que son del mismo color,el conector amarillo lo vas a poner donde dice video output, y en la tv los conectas donde dice inputs en el mismo color del conector.Pones tu tv para entrada de video y ya esta.

Unable to record


if you have a cable or sat box, the vcr should be on channel 3 to record. if this setting is right, check to see if the tab on the left side of the tape is broken off. if it is, just put a piece of tape over it
hope this helps

ALL cable is digital.
What type of TV do you have? Does it have any scart conections on it? If not connect the Cable box with a scart lead to your VCR select the AV channel on your VCR, connect your VCR to your TV via the RF connection, (if it has not got one, its not a TV, its a monitor). Tune your TV in to the video channel.
You do not need an RF modulator for a home TV setup, whoever told you that is a fool.

Need help recording with my Zenith VR4206hf


Depends on what you have for digital cable, but assuming you have a connection for that, you don't need to worry about the other inputs, just find the on-screen menu page that selects the proper input.
