My receiver receives a signal from my motorola dct6412 comcast dual tuner with dvr cable box. when in the dvd source i can receive the cable signal thru the dvd tuner channels 2 thru 120. I cannot receive a signal from thru line 1. If i select tv in the video select mode i get the video but no audio out thru the speakers. Also no audio on the recorded dvd + or - r or rw. My unit plays recorded dvd's fine. Until a month ago i could record thru line 1, but i now have picture or sound thru line 1 only.I no idea why i cannot record now.

Re: cannot record thru line 1

If you could but now you cannot then this is a circuit break down- although check your set up , but I feel it is the machine beginning to die

Tevion tdr930

The TDR930 does not have a digital tuner. It handles the PAL and NTSC video signals. You need to connect it to a set top box and then record on the Line In (composite video) input. The set top box could be a cable, satellite or digital-to-analog OTA converter. Since the DVD recorder can't record HD signal, the regular SD output converter box connected to an antenna will be good.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Trying to connect Magnavox MWR 10D6 DVD/Recorder to Sanyo HDTV. TV is connected to Dish network through coax. cable.

Unfortunately, the Magnavox MWR10D6 recorder can not record HD signals. It's only video inputs are coax (RF) and composite video; both are limited to 480i (SD). NTSC (analog signals) are translated to video.

Your best recording option is to connect the composite video output of the Dish receiver to the video input (yellow for video, red and white for audio) of the recorder. Then set the receiver to the channel that you want to record and set the recorder to Line In.

HD recorders may exist. They are much more expensive than the SD versions.

I wish that I had better news for you. The manual for the MWR10D6 is available from Funai here: .

Zva457mg9A has tv tuner

If you mean the DirectTV satellite system, the tuner in the Magnavox ZV457MG9A will not work. That tuner is for OTA (ATSC and NTSC) and CATV channels. You must connect the Composite A/V Line Out from the receiver to the Line In (front or back) of the recorder. Then, you need to select L1 or L2 (Line In, as needed) by pressing the Source button (at the top of the remote to the left of the Open/Close DVD button). If you are recording immediately, do this after setting the Record mode. Then press Rec if you want to record immediately. Set the receiver to the channel that you will want to record before setting the recording. Leave the unit on that channel and do not turn it off before the recording time. If you are doing a timed record, set the source after setting the time with the up/down/right/left arrows and then press the right arrow to continue setting the timed recording.

If you mean OTA, make sure that you are correctly choosing Digital channels with the DTV/TV button unless you have analog channels still broadcasting in your area. Also check if the antenna signal is strong enough to be seen by the tuner. The digital signal is either enough to be tuned in or you get "no signal". If you split the signal to record and watch different programs, you may reduce the signal below that needed by the tuner. (Different tuners have varying sensitivities. So the TV might still get enough signal when the recorder doesn't.) Amplified splitters can resolve this but when they fail give more problems.

The manual for the is available from Manage My Life: . All recordings are in SD.

I hope this helps.

Scheduled a timer recording of a program on a DVD+R and when I went to play it back all I got on the screen was noise and snow. I now realize that I used the wrong disc (should have used only DVD-R). ...

Hi,During timer recording adjustment you must have selected what ever you want to record..i.e: Tuner Channel , or ,Video1 input ,or Video 2 input etc..This problem is related with Source selection but not with - + type Disc..wrong disc will refuse to record at the beginning..

The noise and snow shows that your recorder was Recorded an unadjusted RF channel..thus no TV signal was available during recording ..
I assume that your DVD recorder has built in TV tuner in...To correct the problem,first you make an automatic Ch set up ,search the available channels either on the Cable (if you have ) or RF local channels thru Arial Antenna..
than you try to record again by carefully selecting will record TV RF channels successfully. Or you can attach another video source to your Recorder thru the RCA cables on the back panel and by selecting the respective SOURCE in accordance withe cabling you have made than you will record the AV signals available on your Receiver..
If you need more help pls let me know for further advise.

Yes you can record any TV show HD or SD, however it depends on what connections you use and what the recorder does with the input signals. You can record HD shows but not in HD resolution if you connect using composite video (yellow RCA cable) you just get a down-converted resolution, probably 480. You must use a HDMI or a component video connection for HD BUT if the recorder cannot record HD video, it should just record it in SD resolution but it should record the input signal. DVD is not HD, you would have to go to Blu-ray for HD and there are not many Blu-ray recorders around. The hard drive has the potential to record in HD but the recorder would have to process HD signals and you would have to connect with HDMI or component video. I would say your Toshiba will record an HD show but in SD resolution. I don't think the recorder has an HDMI input or a component video input. Just composite and S-video inputs. To actually record in HD you should look at another recorder.

A/V Signal Outout through Onkyo TX-SR705

Are you trying to record cable programming with your DVD recorder? If so, you might want to try using component cable as HDMI does have a copy protection circuit that might be preventing your recorder from receiving the image. Just try to connect the cable box component (RED/GREEN/BLUE) cable to your DVD recorder. If that doesn't work, then try to change everything over to component cables. HDMI is a great cable to use but it the only required to display 1080p images and the only current source that uses 1080p is a bluray player. Everything else, such as your cable box and DVD recorder is 1080i and component cables are perfect for it.

Record tv with Panasonic DMR-E75V DVD Player / VCR

Not sure about this, but my guess would be that you don't have the correct channel set on the DVD recorder. It has to be the channel that you use to receive your signal, NOT the channel that you necessarily want to record. For instance- if you use channel 3 to receive your signal from dish, cable etc but want to record a program on (hypothetically) CBS which is (again hypothetically) channel 24 from your dish or cable provider you would go to "Prog/Check" on the remote, highlight the "New Timer Program" line and press "Enter", and then use the numeric buttons to select channel 3 (the channel you use to receive your signal, NOT 24, the channel you want to record). You will have to program your dish/cable box to provide the channel with the content you want to record, in this case- 24.
Not sure if that was your issue, but hope this helps.
