Hi there, How frustrating for you, you may well be connecting the scart leads incorrectly, however another common problem that can happen is the leads that you may well be using.
Make a note of the way you have the leads now and then change the ends round, a tip is to also make sure that you have a dvd playing if possible when you are connecting the leads.
You should have the Sky tuner running into the input of the Dvd recorder and then a scart lead to your Tv for example.
Sky should be found on your Dvd by using the Av control on the Dvd remote.
I hope this helps, Chris

Not receiving a TV signal through the DVD recorder and cannot record programs or watch TV through the DVD recorder


Firstly you must have a good connection from your antennae to the dvd recorder, secondly a good connection between recorder and tv
via scart lead or hdmi. Check these out before you do anything else.

I have a dvd/vcr rrecorder with no coaxial connection. How can I tape or record a TV program?


Hi,first of all I assume that your Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player has the recording features as well..othervise you cant do anything"NEGATIVE" ..If yes than follow the procedure below..
If you want to record your TV program while watching to your DVD/VCR system you need to connect "Video - Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV or CABLE box to "Audio-Video input or "Optic Cable input" of the DVD
There you go..Your TV's video and sound is on the
DVD/VCR Dual Player Receiver..of course your DVD source input should correspond with the jacks you used on the back...push "RECORD" button it should start for recording the coming signal into DVD
when you recording the output RCA jacks of DVD will generate the signal of whatever records that can be monitored with another TV set after properly connected..
Take care and please

How do i connect dvd recorder to tv only receiving sky channels through skybox


If you have two scart sockets on your tv,then connect a scart from av1 on the dvd into the tv,then connect a scart from the sky box into av2 on the dvd,your recording channel on the dvd will be av2.
If you only have on socket on the tv,then connect a scart from av1 on the dvd into the sky box,your recording channel will be av1,connected like this you may have to turn off the sky to watch dvd`s.

Connecting protron dvd to dish TV


I hope you have at least 2 sets of RCA jacks for (1) the Dish receiver and (2) the DVD player. Run 2 sets of R/W/Y cables to the TV. Done. Or use S-video for a better picture instead of yellow.
If you only have one composite input on TV (possible) then either buy a 2-way or more switch for the composite signal (R=right sound W=left Y=composite or S-video instead of composite) or you can instead pass the signal through the DVD recorder on the RCAs but the DVD will be on whenever anything is on. I assume you do not have a Dish 111 with only RF output but the same could be done for just the wimpy RF, just different switch. So there will be 3 RCA cables from Dish to a recorder and 3 then to the TV. Since you do not have a recorder, then go back to the switch or find another TV input.
Ten years, hum, you may not have had composite/S-video inputs and would have to use RF only--you did not say what TV was.

How do I connect my sky,dvd,vcr and tv together so that I can record a sky progrmme on a video?


You need to connect a SCART lead from the video output of the skybox to the SCART input on your video recorder.
Be aware that you can only record what you are watching, and if you are out the skybox needs to be on and on the correct channel

Dvd player not connected properly to TV?


You might need one or both of:

RF modulator.
AV switch (perhaps from an old video game console)

The modulator accepts the RCA plugs from your DVD player (yellow, white, red) and outputs an RF signal.

You can then plug the ouput of the modulator into the aerial input of the skybox, via the switch, if desired.

Ilo DVD player/recorder


> jfthr - Tv convertor boxes transfer digital signals into ANALOG. So when it goes to the dvd recorder it IS ANALOG. I have my antenna hooked to my convertor box, the converter hooked up to the ILO (A/V connections) then, the output on the ILO to the input of my analog tv. (Video selection on my tv). It works great to watch tv and/or record. I switch to the "DVD SOURCE" to watch dvds. Maybe you have the conv box hooked to the tv then the outs on the tv to the dvd. That would explain why you can get a picture but not watch dvd? The ILO has to go between the box and the tv in order to watch dvd.
