Cannot timer record with Insignia HD TV and LG DVR/VCR

I have a new 50" Insignia HD TV and an LG DVR/VCR combo unit, model LRY-517.  I can play VHS tapes and DVDs just fine but despite trying all the different combinations of AV2, Channel 3, Channel 4, etc., cannot get the timer recording to work.  I suspect I need to tweak the "modalities" a bit more but frustration is starting to set in and I thought I needed professional help - in more ways than one.
Thank you.

    Sorry - I didn't state the issue clearly enough.  There is nothing wrong with the DVR/VCR or the timer record function.  I have had many, many VCRs over the years and in all cases, when I'm trying to timer record, the VCR is on Channel 3 or 4, the TV is on Channel 3 or 4 and the channel is selected on the cable box.  Whatever is playing on the selected station is displayed on the TV.  Timer recording is then set up and all is well.  With the new TV, I cannot see the selected station on the TV.  I either get snow or "no signal".  As I mentioned, the playing of DVDs or VHS tapes is working fine. 


    Thanks for your help.

    Still not working so let me ask the question this way.  If the DVR/VCR combo is connected in such a way that the playing of DVDs and VHS tapes is working fine, does that necessarily mean that recording should work, too?  Maybe I'm just picking the wrong option between having the combo unit on Channel 3, AV1, etc., when I want to record something.


    Thank you!

Make sure when you do the process two things: one, a blank tape or If it is a dvd recorder, a blank disk is inserted, in the tape make sure the tab that prevents recording is not broken.Two, before exit the timer recording menu, make sure that there is not a instruction that says "done" or "confirm" or any word meaning that all the steps went through.

    Ok, better like this. The cable signal that comes out from the cable box must go into the VCR/DVD combo (TV in), NOT directly to the TV, then another aditional cable that go out from the VCR/DVD (TV out) and must be connected into the regular "ANT in" into the TV, is connected like this?

My friend you're right, let's do this, take an audio video cable (the one with the 3 colors:red, white for audio and yellow for video) connect them at the output of your cable box, then go to the back of de combo and connect where it says "audio video in", matching the colors of course, try to set the recording timer on AV1 or 2 depending what name has the inputs that you just connected.

I have an old emerson TV/VCR (Digital Tracking VHSHQ) The TV works fine, but when I put a tape in it is ejected and part of the tape stays inside, but can be pulled out.


Try a VHS Cleaning Tape Cassette. Follow it's instructions. If no better result it's not worth throwing away money on having repairs done but better put toward, if you can afford to, buying:
Option 1. A VHS/DVD player (combo as these are known) and plug that into the Emerson AV input.
Option Two: A VHS/DVD twin recorder combo deck - and plug that in.
Then start on copying any VHS tapes you cherish to DVD on this device.
Option Three: Forget the Emerson except for just using as a TV and buy a new TV with DVD player built in - the latest type of combo.
(I'm having to guess whether you've just used tapes to watch or record and watch)

I have a Digistar flat screen TV mod # LC32U5D Was a demo in Walmart - came with no manual - Have a vhs/dvd combo unit hooked up to it with a 3wire set up - can watch TV no prob - can watch dvd or vhs no...


you have to send the video and audio from the tv set to the inputs on the VCR recorder (it should be labeled "IN" there will be one yellow, one white (or black) and one red connector. without these cables hooked up, your recorder has nothing to record from.
