Most set top boxes with HDMI also have a yellow video out and white audio out for connection to a VCR or DVD recorder. Connect these two RCA cables to the VCR's yellow and white INPUTS for recording. Set the VCR to LINE input. For VCR playback, connect yellow video and white audio OUTS from VCR to your TV's yellow and white INPUTS. Select this input on the TV set.

SOURCE: VCR won't record

Hi Pat and Mary Jo,

It sounds like your VCR might be trying to record your line input instead of the TV channels and would explain a completely black recording.

The line input is where would connect a camcorder or another VCR, where you would play on one machine and record on your VCR.

Some models have a slide switch on the front that selects the input. Others let you select it from a menu option. Still others automatically select it when the appropriate cables are inserted into the line in connectors.

Let me know if that was it or not. Thanks,

-Vince

SET YOUR TO RF LEVEL " LOW" OR YOUR CABLE CONNECTION IS WRONG CHECK IT.IF THE PROBLEM REMAINS, CHECK IT ON STANDARD DEFINITION TV FOR RECORDING.IF THE PROGRAM RECORDS OK THEN IT ID NOT COMPITIBLE FOR DIGITAL SIGNALS. BUT IF NO RECORDINGS PERFORM CHECK THE VIDEO HEAD CLOGGINGS OR MAY BE MAIN "IC" PROBLEM.

Make sure your VCR is on channel 3 or try channel 4. Also, make sure your VCR is set to VIDEO or VCR and not TV. 
A better way to do this is to connect the cable box to the VCR using the composite cable (yellow/red/white) cable. Then, connecting the cable box to your TV with component cable (red/greenblue) cables. This will only work if your TV has component in. If not, then connect the VCR out composite (yellow/red/white) to the TV. Or use the coax cable from the cable box labeled TV/VCR right to your TV. Make sure your VCR is set on LINE1 or LINE.

SOURCE: VCR doesn't record since Comcast installed digital box

Try this..Run cable line into VCR in, cable from VCR out to box, then cable from box to TV..this might work...I have done this for YEARS and it is never failed. You can then watch and record 2 things at once.

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.

Can an analogue VCR be used to record from a digital signal?


If you have connected the digital source such as a DV Video camera to TV using HDMI (digital) or RCA (analouge) signal; and you have already configured your VCR with that TV, you should be able to record irrespective of the source signal type.

I have a Panasonic TV with inbuilt Freeview TH-42PX70BA. I also have a Hitachi VCR VT-FX980E which I use to record analogue channels. Now that the analogue signal is disappearing I would like to record...


The simple solution is to connect your VCR to a Freeview set top box, which you can pick up for around £10. Simply connect the box via a scart lead. If the Video has two scrat sockets use the other for the box. For recording set the VCR up the same way but instead of selecting channel one or two etc set it as AV2 if that is the place the box is connected. When recording leave the box on the station you want to record and the VCR will record it. Don't forget to allow a few minutes either way for the start and stop times. Also if the VCR has PDC switch it to off.
You should be able to record this way whilst watching another channel on the TV. Some Freeview set top box's have timers on them so if you are out and want to record two shows on different channels you can.
If you have only one scart then a scart switching unit such as this below will solve that problem. Found on Amazon.

Now that we are on digital will the SD-37VB dvd vcr recorder work or do I have to alter a setting to make this happen


If the unit has a built in analogue tuner, the unit itself will still operate as normal, but without the built in analogue channels - to record a TV show, you would need to connect an external set top box to it (SD or HD - or both).

In other words, apart from a separate set top box, if required, there should be no need to change any of the unit's settings if it works as is. I do not believe this model has a built-in digital (DVB) tuner.

Can the LG 990W VHS VCR receive digital TV signal


VCR is analogue, However you can still use it to record digital programmes when connected via a digital set top box. You can only record the channel you have selected on the screen. In other words, you cannot record a channel programme while watching another channel. I use mine on a second TV and when recorded I take the tape out and put it into my main TV for viewing at a later date. I don't watch too much TV so it works fine for me for the odd programme.

I cannot get the VCR/DVD to record from my tv. I have a satellite dish. The input from the dish receiver to the tv is HDMI1. The DVD receiver hooks into the AV1 inputs. I can set the timer, but nothing...


I have no direct experience but you should note no recording will take place unless the signal format is suitable/compatible. HDMI is a digital signal and your VCR/DVD will probably require an analogue signal.

A tv processes the digital into analogue but sockets at the back of tv sets tend to be input only. A minority of tv sets have two scart sockets, the second one usually providing an output sound and video of what is playing on the tv at the time.

I believe it is possible to buy a box that will convert digital to analogue or vice-versa.

Awa dvd recorder dr711 can this be connected to a set top box


If it's like the DR620 it will only receive analogue from the TV aerial. I connect the AV out connections on my set box to the inlet AV on the recorder and watch and record through the recorder's "rear AV input" selection.

VCR to TV


Your FIOS box is typically a Motorola Digital Cable Tuner. In order to record from the VCR your FISO will have control of the tuner, not the vcr. If your FIOS has two video outputs on it for video (av connections), one should be plugged into you tv set and the other should be plugged into the VCR input. Your cable tuner will have to be set for the channel you wish to record ahead of time while the VCR tuner has to be set to record the line input at whatever time you wish to record. If your FISO has one video output line (av connections), your VCR has to be set to channel 3 when you record (provided that is the channel your FISO box is set for when viewing TV over the coax cable) and you will have to attach the coaxial output from the FISO into the coax input of your VCR.

The only way around this is to get a splitter and split the coax line so that the FIOS is connected to the coax as it is now and the VCR is connected to a seperate line using the coax input, however using this configuration will prevent you from recording digital channels. If you have a cable ready VCR, it will probably only recognize channels up to 150.

If you really want to get it to record digital channels without the hassles find out if Verizon has a FISO box with DVR to it or connect a Tivo to your FISO. Tivo will tune the FSIO when it records and it's very user friendly to use.
