This is sometimes caused by the wrong picture mode being set on the TV. Make sure your equipment is set to the correct picture mode (i.e. NTSC vs. PAL).

How do i hookup a sanyo vhr h607 to my television

Unless the VCR has a digital tuner the only way to record off the TV will be to connect it by a scart socket and cable. However to record you would have to watch the TV show you are recording. An alternative is to get a set top box, which are fairly cheap and connect that to the VCR. Some VCR's have two scart sockets one for the TV and a spare one. You can connect the box via the spare one. When setting the recording you will have to select AV2. If the VCR has only one scart socket you might need a scart switching box.

Problems with Philips vhs recorder/dvd player

You only need coaxial cable to pick up TV stations broadcast via an aerial. If your TV has sockets to connect via HDMI or SCART, then any players can be connected via them. So if the adapter box picks up TV signals, you connect the main aerial cable to that and it should have a coaxial out socket, that should be connected to the aerial in of your TV. If you are recording to an analogue video from the adapter box, then that will need to be connected via a scart socket or other connection.

My vcr recorded my shows before i switched to a digital adapter now i cant get it to record anything ive tried everything

If the digital adaptor is connected to your TV, then the VCR will not get any signals to record. The VCR will also have to be converted, by adding another digital box, unless the first box has two digital tuners! You can connect another box if the VCR has two scart sockets, the second box connected to the other scart socket. To record after connection, leave the box on, set to the channel you want to record, and set the timer on the video. However when selecting the channel to record make certain that you select the scart socket with the box connected to it. Also make certain (if the VCR has it) PDC is set to OFF as it no longer works.
This way you can record shows while watching anothe channel.

No instruction to set up the freeview box digihome dvb 915 can you help

Set up should be quite straightforward assuming you have all the bits.
You will need
  1. a standard co-axial aerial lead from your TV antenna to the female socket on the Freeview Box
  2. A scart to scart lead to connect the Freeview box (tv out socket) to the television.
If you wish to connect a video recorder or other equipment you may also need a second coaxial lead (male to female) for the RF through socket to connect to the aerial in socket on the video recorder.
If your TV does not have a scart socket you can connect the scart lead to the scart socket on a video recorder and then use the normal method of watching videos to view the Freeview TV pictures (here you may need to press the PAUSE button on your video recorder to prevent it going back into standby-mode after a few minutes).
Simply connect the box to your TV, turn on the power and the auto channel-scan will immediately detect and install all available channels.
If the Freeview box has been previously used in a different location / with a different TV transmitter you may need to re-tune it. Press the menu button on the remote control, scroll through the menu to set-up. Follow on screen prompts.

Connect VCR without tuner to record from television

If it has a scart, you can get a scart lead to connect it to your TV. You would need to set the VCR to the Scart socket, IE: AV1 etc.. to record. You wouldn't be able to change channel on the TV, to watch another channel while recording though. If you had a set-top box, you could connect that up to the scart of the video then record, while you watched another channel on your TV.

Sound problems with recording to vcr using converter box

If your TV has no scart connection, no HDMI connection, then to be honest I would get a new set. There are plenty of good second hand models around, which will be better than your old set and come with a digital tuner built in.
As for the VCR, that should have a scart socket and so should the converter box. Once connected via the scart socket you should be be able to record the shows easily. If the converter box comes with a volume control, you might need to set that up to get it right. If the VCR has two scart sockets use the second one to connect the box. Use the first to connect to the TV for viewing your recordings only.
If it has only one scart, then look around on Amazon for one of these scart switching boxers.
