VCRs are usually connected in Audio-Video inputs of TVs.
Please check what input is being used in TV for VCR cable hook up at rear of TV. Select that AV input in TV by remote and enjoy.

How to hook up vcr when using a cable box


That will depend upon what you want to do. If you plan to record to the VCR from the cable box, then the cable box will need to directly connect to the VCR, then the output of the VCR is connected to the TV. Unfortunately, most VCRs are analog, not digital, so you will lose HD capability (if you have it) trying to connect this way. You also cannot record one show while watching something else (you will need to be tuned to the channel you are recording). If you want to simply use the VCR to view recorded tapes, then connect the cable box to the TV as per the cable company recommendations, and then make a second connection for the VCR. Of course, your TV will need appropriate and available jacks on the rear to do this. It is difficult to give specifics without knowing the models of the cable box, VCR, and TV.

You don't record from TV, you record from cable so cable needs to be hooked up to input on VCR.
If you don't use cable box you would hook cable to VCR then out of VCR to TV. If you use cable box then you need to connect Video and Audio outputs on cable box to Video and Audio inputs on VCR and switch input of VCR to Line input.

Bought new samsung dvd/vcr. have an older admiral tv with just a cable hole. this is the second tv on a dish network, so this tv only has a cable, the box is in the living room. so how do I hook this...


The easiest way to make it work is to:
1- run your cable into your new VCR to CATV IN.

2-Your VCR should have come with a short length of cable. Connect it from the OUT jack to the TV.

3- Set the TV to either channel 3 or 4- you need to check the VCR manual to see which channel you have to use. Some VCR's have a small switch labeled "channel select"- if so, set it and your TV to the same channel... your choice.

4- Leave your TV on the channel you set above all the time. You will now change your channels using your VCR. You will be able to record whatever you are watching.

Im having problems hooking up thru vcr/dvd player


Hi,

The correct setup depends on whether you have a cable/satellite receiver and whether you want to record to and playback from the VCR. If you are using a cable/satellite receiver, this needs to be connected to both the TV and the DVD/VCR if you want to record. The DVD then needs to be connected to the TV via the video and audio out sockets on the back of the DVD/VCR for playback.

I can let you know exactly which connections to use and where they should all go, but I need to know the following details as otherwise I don't know which sockets/connect you have available.

1. Brand and model number of TV
2. Brand and model number of DVD/VCR
3. Brand and model number of any cable/satellite receiver if you are using one.

Please confirm these details and I will try to assist you further.

Regards,
BElectric

When i record spanish satalite station the recorded program goes black and white on a regular basis


Well, if the program is showing in color on the TV, then the TV is fine. If she's recording using a VCR, then I presume she doesn't have a cable box? If she doesn't have a cable box and has the cable from the wall going into the VCR and the VCR connected to the TV, then the problem is the VCR if the program appears in color when showing "live" on the TV but black and white when played back on the VCR. Does that make sense? Let me know if you understand what I'm telling you.

New TV won't ''talk to'' old VCR


using the magnovox remote, reprogram the vcr's channels. set it up to use cable not air. when the vcr was unlugged it lost it's channel memory. don't buy new cables, you're getting a picture and sound so that means your rca cables are ok.

Playing vcr causes new digital tv to lose saved channels


Vizio representative suggested connecting antenna directly to TV and not through the VCR. In doing this, we lose the ability to record on the VCR but we record elsewhere and watch downstairs. The problem is solved on losing channels. I must add that we watch and record on a Sharp digital TV upstairs and do not lose channels. I don't know why the VCR had this effect on this Vizio TV.

Bought a new 42' flat - "No Program or Weak Signal"


Hi,you have not said weather you are using a scart lead(euro connecter)or an RF lead,if you are using the later don't,please connect the vcr to the tv via the scart to scart euro connecters,use a good quality scart lead(the thicker the better)as the thicker ones generally are 21 pins connected meaning it should be auto switching so as soon as you play a tape it will come straight on.
