Magnavox (philips) is one of the cheapiest dvd/vcr combos that offer excellent quality on the market. If you have a cable box or Directv box, simply use the audio/video connections on the back and connect them in the combo, then you can record from the television programs whenever you want.

    I cannot record digital when I try to set up my Magnavox ZV457MG9 (DVD). The unit will only record in the external L1. I have a Comcast box.


    This is normal for the ZV457MG9 units. The Magnavox ZV457MG9 does not have an analog (NTSC) tuner; additionally there is no digital (ATSC or QAM) tuner either. It will only record on line in (L1) which is a composite input (limited to SD). The HDMI port on the recorder is an HDMI out to TV, not an input. The component video jacks are also only outputs.

    The manual for the Magnavox ZV457MG9/F7 is available here: http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/z/zv427mg9_f7/zv427mg9_f7_dfu_aen.pdf . The unit was manufactured for Magnavox by Funai; thus another link to the manual is http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/ZV427MG9.pdf .

    I wish that I had better news for you.

    (If your DVD/VCR recorder had a tuner, it would record off a coaxial (antenna) cable input. Many DVRs can record off the HD connection (HDMI or component); that may be a better option for replacing this Magnavox unit.)

    I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9 DVD Recorder VCR Combo. Do I need a separate tuner? If so what kind? Thanks


    Hello
    Ofcourse you need an external tuner to receive any RF signals. Your Magnavox is not equipped with internal tuner with it. OK.

    I have just purchased a Magnavox VHS/DVD recorder/player and cannot hook it up to my TV as my TV only has a coax plug in the back. Someone said I need a tuner. Where do I purchase one and how...


    A tuner will only help if you want to record a signal and the DVD/VCR doesn't have a built-in tuner for that broadcast type (ATSC (OTA Digital in the US), NTSC (analog), Clear-QAM (unencrypted digital cable)). What you need is an RF modulator (composite to coax converter). These are available at many stores that sell electronics. The price will depend on the store. Here's one that is $30 at Radio Shack: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103095 . Walmart and Best Buy also list them.

    I hope this helps.

    Need to know if I can record from dvd to vcr on a magnavox ZV420MWB vcr/dvd combo


    Magnavox ZV420MWB VCR/DVD Combo
    The answer is YES YOU CAN! Take advantage of one-touch recording from videotapes to DVD+/-R and RW discs or from DVDs to VHS tapes. A variety of different inputs also let you record from compatible camcorders, external TV tuners or cable boxes.

    CONSUMER ALERT: This model does not have a built-in tuner for recording TV programs and will not record copy-protected tapes or discs. For more information, call the Federal Communications Commission at 1-888-225-5322 (TTY: 1-888-835-5322) or visit the Commission's digital television website at: www.dtv.gov.

    Channel selection


    L1 and L2 are just line inputs. This unit does not have a tuner so there are no channels to select.
    It requires you to be connected to a TV broadcast via a cable or satellite tuner box... and then would only record what ever channel you were viewing. The DVD is a player only.
    It sounds like you should have purchased a DVD Recorder or a DVD/VCR Recorder. The players normally do not have a tuner. A Recorder should have an built-in digital tuner. Some also have the old NTSC tuner and may also have a QAM tuner.

    your model is "tuner free" that means it does not have the RF screw in connector. Buy one that has a tuner, preferably both ATSC(USA digital) and NTSC(USA analog)
