Question about Panasonic PV-V4021 S-VHS VCR

1 Answer

Panasonic PV-V4021 VCR.

I have an analog TV. I receive TV signals via air antenna. The antenna is plugged into the input of a digital conversion box. The output of the box feeds into the VCR. Output of the VCR goes to the TV. Reception now on TV of digital signals is fine (better than from analog transmission). But now I can't figure out how to set the VCR for timed recording (for when I'm away from the house). No way to input channel numbers such as 11-2 into the VCR. Can this VCR be made compatible with the new digital system and conversion box? Thanks for any answers you can provide.

An analog VCR can only be used the same way as an analog TV. You should be able to set the VCR to the converter boxes output channel ( 3 for example) and then set the VCR to record that channel at the correct times. Then just tune the converter box to the correct channel. Please note that if you try this while you are at home (recording one thing while watching another) you will wind up recording whatever is on the channel you change to.

TV/VCR Recording of TV Programs Using a Digital Converter Box


Hi Rick
I think you are painting yourself into a corner. So to Speak.
Why buy a SetTop Box to convert to an old VHS Tape when you can buy a Digital Recorder for probably the same price.
The modern way to Record video is to use a Hard Disk Drive Recorder rather than a VCR. They have a built in tuner and can record 2 stations at once and have a built in Electronic Program Guide. The EPG info is transmitted with the Digital TV transmission from the broadcaster.
I bought one 2 weeks ago for an old 85yo friend so he could record late night stuff and play back later. He still uses the VCR but only for old VHS Tape playback. It was a TEAC HDR9650TS Digital Video Recorder and I picked it up new for Aus$188.
Here are the unit features
  1. Main Features:
    DVB-T Twin Digital Turners
    DVR Recording: Record three channels while watching a 4th from same network Smart Series Record feature to record a whole series at a touch of a button
    2.5" Sata Hard disk: 500GB
    Time Shift Function (Pause live TV)
    HDMI Digital Output
    Digital Audio Output
    CVBS/YPbPr/SPDIF connectors
    Supports TV formats 4:3 and 16:9
    Electronic Program Guide (EPG) up to 7 days in advance
    EPG searching and auto download
    Recorded program edit
    Parental Control
    Copy files from internal HDD to external HDD
    Built-in WiFi
    Network Playback
    USB 2.0 Interface


Now
This was my original reply until I saw the light.

So, Hopefully one of these will answer your queerie.

A digital TV picks up the new Digital Transmission and stores it in memory, then supplies the high definition to the input of your TV.
With a STB, once the digital broadcast signal is captured by the Set Top Box tuner, it is stored in memory and then it is converted to Video Format and comes out of the back connectors as a standard video & audio signal on the Red & White (Audio) & Yellow (Video) as a composite signal that can also be attached to an older VCR tape recorder.
If the STB output connectors have a Red White & Yellow RCA plugs then it is all ready to be picked up by an older TV or VCR.
Most set top boxes also have HDMI Output for high definition video & sound in the one cable, which attaches directly to the back of your TV (assuming it doesn't already have a tuner (STB) already built in).
HDMI is the state of the art cabling for modern devices. But probably not on the old VCR.
It will either use Component, Composite or SVideo cables. Match one of these cable standards up with your VCR.

Hi,can I record digital transmissions on my sony slv-se820g vcr barry


You can record a digital TV signal on a VHS VCR but only in analog format. The digital signal must be input to the VCR by some component which has a yellow composite video output and a white audio output such as a digital cable TV box or satellite receiver. For over-the-air digital TV, either the TV must output analog video or you need a DTV converter box connected to the VCR. Bottom line, the digital signal must be converted to analog for the VCR since VHS VCRs generally are analog recorders.

We just purchased a Panasonic VCR/TV Universal remote for our PV-V4021 VCR and find we no longer have a user guide. How can we set the VCR to record at a later time, such as later in the evening? Where...


The problem with universal remotes is that unless you enter the correct code for that model not all functions will operate. You need to try every Panasonic code in the code book, untill you find one that works the guide function. Otherwise the only real solution is to get the original remote.

Why can't I tune in new channels from set top box through vcr?


Sounds like you are trying to receive the new Over The Air OTA, digital ATSC signals on a VCR that can only receive analog NTSC, which are not sent by any but low-power channels. Did you miss the change over last April, postponed from Feb, and featured on every TV channel when you could have obtained 1 or 2 $40 coupons toward ATSC-to-NTSC converter boxes. Try www.dtv.gov for more info, IIRC.
If you are speaking of cable TV then see your company. These may be digital Quadrature Amplitude Modulation QAM signals that only certain TVs can decode provided they are not encrypted. Locals are never encrypted. This is separate from the ATSC conversion.

Have digital TV have 3 yr old sony VHS VCR DVD player combo


A DTV converter box will take digital broadcast signals from the antenna and convert them to a format compatible with the VCR. You will be able to record programs received through the DTV box on your VCR if you could record analog over-the-air programs before the digital changeover. You can use either the RF output or the component output from the DTV box to input to the VCR.

Can't use VCR


There's nothing wrong with your VCR. Your remote probably set to control your TV. To fix that, simply press the VCR button on the remote, and you should be fine. The "T-U" really means "TV," but the designers at Panasonic wanted to use the standard seven-segment display to cut costs, hence "T-U" instead of "TV."

Hdtv converter box to vcr


Hi Drtrippy,

If I understand correctly, you are using your VCR for the actual tuning of the TV.

The converter box itself contains a tuner, so you should now receive extra channels available only to an HD tuner. You should try connecting your antenna as input to the converter box. Then output the signal from your converter box to the VCR. Your VCR may then remain connected to your projector.

You may simply think of this as if you are inserting the converter box between your antenna and your VCR, which should be currently connected to receive an over-the-air signal. Remember, as the tuner you will be using is in the converter box, you will need to change channels using the converter box, not the VCR.

Thank you,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.
