Allegro ABV411 (DVD/VCR): VCR records with a ''vertical roll''

Remember those old TV's with the vertical and horizontal knobs? That's what I need for this VCR, as the picture won't stabilize from currently made recordings. Previously recorded VHS tapes (before this problem arose) playback just fine!

Also, for a few weeks, everytime I tried to go into FF or REW (from a complete stop - as opposed to cue/review while in Play mode...which worked fine), an ERR message would flash....the VCR would turn off...and yet, the tape would either rewind or go forward for about half a minute (about 6 minutes actual tape time)...WHILE THE UNIT WAS OFF! (The direction seemed random).

I'd keep starting and stopping the unit until the problem went away.

Last few days, that prob is gone...time to junk the unit?

Thanx!

FACE

PS: FF and REW also seem sluggish about half the time (tape will actually move at the speed of (as if in) Cue/Review while in play!)

SOURCE: Comcast Digital Conversion box (cable TV)

You will have to split the signal before it goes into the digital box. The digital box is not allowing the analog signal to go to your vcr so you will only be able to record what you are watching on the cable box (on channel 4). If you split it, you will get all your analog channels back on your VCR (the way it was before the box was added).

DVR620KU From the HDMI connector, how to get non-pinched vertical HDMI images on the TV monitor and on the DVD. Recorded DVD's have been Finalized


Using a DVD-RW disk, try ALL different recording settings even if they don't seem probable and record a sample. If output is correct with all BUT the HDMI-cable, go through ALL picture format settings on the TV when a HDMI-cable is used. Different discs and HDMI cables don't have anything to do with this. I'm still chewing on this...
