How can I transfer my vhs tapes to dvd from the LG RC185?

I think you use the "dubbing" button. I would strongly suggest reading the user manual for the specific step-by-step procedure as this is an integrated unit (see page 39 of the below link "Copying from VCR to DVD") - unfortunately LG's own site chooses no to use PDF and you need to install a plugin, so I suggest you download a PDF copy from here:

How do i transfer recording from vhs to dvd ram panasonic

The easiest way to transfer from VHS to DVD is by connecting the VHS player (or VCR) A/V OUT to the DVD recorder A/V IN. This uses inexpensive RCA cables, which can often be found in a local "dollar store" or for around 5 dollars in any electronics store.

The jacks are round and colored Yellow (Video), Red (Audio Right), and White (Audio Left).

After you connect the A/V OUT from your VHS player to your DVD recorder A/V IN, you will need to select the INPUT of your DVD recorder to "A/V" or "composite" in the SETUP menu. Your DVD recorder manual will provide details for your specific model on how to select the A/V input.

Once the correct input is selected, press PLAY on your VHS player, and as soon as the picture is steady, press RECORD on your DVD recorder. You will be good to go!

I recommend that you do not use DVD-RAM disks, though. They are "platform specific", meaning that if your DVD-RAM burner dies, you will need to replace it with the same model to be able to view your video. The best solution that I have found is to use blank DVD-R disks. They are much less expensive than DVD-RAM media. Make sure that after you are done recording on a disk that you "finalize" it. Until any DVD is finalized, it will be "platform specific"- by finalizing the disk, it will work on any DVD player. Check your DVD burner manual for the details on how to finalize disks.... the procedure varies from one manufacturer to another.

DVD-RAM and DVD+/- RW disks have a drawback in that before they can be used at all, they need to be formatted. Depending on the make and model of your burner, this can take up to 45 minutes. The big advantage with DVD-RAM and DVD+/-RW is that they can be erased and reused. DVD+/-R media is "record once".... you cannot erase and reuse them, but they are much less expensive.

DVD+R and DVD-R disks can be written to directly, then finalized as I described above.
My experience has been that for videos, DVD-R disks produce the best results, and have the least amount of errors. The disk brands that I have had the best luck with are TDK and Panasonic. Each manufacturer uses a different dye recipe for their disks, and some may not work at all for you. Keep away from the generic disks unless you are willing to experiment. I have had allot of problems with DVD+R so I no longer use them.

I Hope this was not TMI..... I just wanted to convey as much as I could so your recording experiences are pleasant ones..... Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

How do I record a vhs onto a dvd on the combo?

I have researched the manual for this particular device and you will not be able to convert/record VHS tapes to DVD discs. You can however record content from a DVD to VHS tape as this model only has a readable disc player not a DVD burner. Sorry, but you may want to research DVD recorders that also have VHS playback.

Scroll across to "Easy Menu" and select "Dubbing".
Make sure you are at the place on your VHS where you want to record from and select the "Dubbing" button.
Press the Stop button to finish transfering.

Depending on the type of football game it is, the software is seeing some sort of copyright on it. If it is from the NFL, then you won't be able to put that video on DVD.

Dvd is unable to read disk that i recoreded on the lg dvd recorder

It would be nothing to do with the TV.

DVD RW discs only last for so long if you have re-written to them many times they may be just worn out. Or is it with all RW discs?

Are you trying to watch them on the same player you recorded them on or is it a different DVD Player you are trying to watch them on?

LG vs Lite On

both are just the same features just to write file from your hard drive. Maybe your point is you want the video from your VHS tapes will transfer to your hard drive. The only way to copy the video from your VHS is you need an external VHS player at the same time it will record the running video to a soft copy.

Please check this maybe this will be helpful

Please rate me solve if you like my solution.
