You need to connect a scart lead between the TV and VCR, A Scart lead is a multi core (12 or 15 pin) cable with oblong shape connectors which just plug in to sockets on the device. If there is more than one scart socket on your device it should have a symbol IN or OUT or TV or SAT otherwise just experiment until you get the right connexion.

We have just had a digital box connected to our tv, now the VCR doesn't work. What do I need to do?


I don't think the VCR has a digital tunner so you will need a second box for that unless the box to your TV has a twin digital tunners. If the switchover has taken place in your area the VCR will not have a picture to record. Without knowing how you have all 3 connected I can't tell you much more.

We recently connected to Direct TV...I want to transfer some old western TV Shows I recorded on my Direct TV DVR Recorder to VCR Tape. I was told by the people at Direct TV that I would need to contact you...


You can try this: Connect your DirecTv to VCR with Red/White/Yellow cables. Then the VCR to your TV with the same type of cables. Make sure the VCR is set to the video input, not the tuner. Turn your TV to the correct video input. Get the program ready on the DVR as if you were going to watch it. Press record on the VCR and then play on the DVR. At the end of the program, press stop on both. You may have a problem with the video recording properly. Some stations broadcast with copyright protection.

I have a Toshiba VCR w522 and would like to record a program previously recorded from a DVR. Is it possible?


If the vcr has two scarts connect the DVR player to one and select that imput. Watch the program using the the other scart connected to the TV. Press record on the vcr and then start the DVR player going. If it doesn't have two scarts use the front panel jacks to connect the DVR player.
The only time you won't be able to record a program is if somekind of anti-copy system is employed.

I need to know how to hook up my vcr to my dvr to record something off of it onto a vhs tape. directv said i need to contact the maker of the vcr & guess what RCA doesn't help with that. but i...


Ok. You connect the vcr to the televison first. Take an rca cable and connect it to the video out of the vcr then connect the other end to the av input on your television. Then take another set of RCA cables and connect them to the RCA av input on your vcr and connect the other end to the output on your dvr.

Now hopefully your tv has another RCA input you can hook directly to the dvr with another set of RCA cables to another one of the dvrs outputs. If not then don't worry about that.

Now make sure the tv is switched over to the av video RCA input the vcr is connected to and turn the vcr on. The vcr should be in input and when it is you will see the picture from your dvr and you will change channels with your dvr remote. You can now record using the vcr remote.

Recording 3 digit channels


With the VCR connected to DirecTV, you're not picking the channel with the VCR anymore. You're picking the channel on the DirecTV receiver, and the VCR will record on channel 3 or 4 (if you've hooked the receiver up using the RF output to the VCR) or through its line (A/V) inputs if you're using those. The tuning range of the VCR is completely unimportant.

With your new system, though, there's one big drawback. Since the VCR is always set for channel 3 or 4, or its line input, and you're changing channels on the DirecTV receiver, you can't program the VCR to record several different channels if you go out. You won't be home to change channels on the receiver, so the only channel you'll be able to record is whichever one you've selected before you go out. Remember the VCR is taping the output of the satellite receiver, and not the satellite channel directly. If you record on some channel other than the receiver's output channel, there won't be anything there. All you'll get is snow or a blank screen.

How do I hook up a daewood vcr to a TV through a Direct TV


If you are trying to connect a VCR to your television and still have Directv, this is the way to do it. Disconnect your Directv receiver from your television, Then connect the VCR to the television either through coax or RCA cables. If using the coax cable connect the out to tv on the VCR to the television. If using RCA cables connect the RCA OUT to the television AV1 connection. Once that is done, connect tha Directv receiver to the VCR using either coax or RCA cables. the Directv receiver only has RCA outputs so, if using RCA cables connect to VCR in. Remember that in order to see the Directv the VCR needs to remain on and it must be on the channel line in. If using coax cable connect to the VCR where it says in from antenna. Remember that if using this method your VRC does not have th remain on to view Direct. If you're trying to record Directv, then your VCR need to be on the same channel as the Directv output channel either channel 3 or 4. If trying to record Directv using RCA connections the VCR needs to be on the AV settings. If you have any futher questions please feel free to call me at (361)510-0339

RCA VR355 recording problem


Are you sure the reciever is coming through the vcr.? are you hooking it up through a/v on vcr?
if so hook from a/v out from directv to a/v in
jacks on back of vcr. and turn vcr on a/v channel
to record it. you will see the picture as you record it. if the vcr isn't on a/v channel it won't record it
If you use ch 4 or 3 to record it you
hook up directv to cable in on vcr and you
have to turn vcr on that channel and see it coming
through it you have to push a button on satlette
remote to make it come on the vcr on the channel
or it will record snow. and you have to push
another button on vcr remote if you haven't
already to get the vcr on ch 4 or 3 on your tv
or if u got it through a/v turn tv to a/v channnel.

just beacuse you see the picture coming through
your tv doesn't mean it going through your vcr
you could be just seeing it through the tv only.
you will see the vcrs graphics or vcr channel number on your
tv too along with the directv channel if it's hooked
up right. notice the vcr won't record it's own
graphics or channel number on the screen but it will record the directv's graphics. and it won't record the tv's own grapic channel number either.
to make sure it's right you will see 3 graphics on
your tv the own tv's channel number or a/v
the directvs and the vcr's channel number or a/v
on your tv if you see these you know it's hook up
right.
