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.

The VCR/DVD combo that you purchased will be able to record what you wish to a VHS tape at low quality or to a DVD at a higher quality.

  1. Coax cable (round and screw on) from the antenna to VCR/DVD
  2. Coax/AV/HDMI cable (only need 1) from the VCR/DVD player to TV
  3. TV on and turned to the input matching the cable you used in step 2
  4. Turn on VCR/DVD and use the remote control included with this unit. Not the TV's
  5. Turn it to the channel 11 on the VCR/DVD
  6. Put in a VHS tape or DVD-R to record onto
  7. You will be able to hit record whenever the show comes on or used timed recording in the menu to schedule it ahead of time

Use lens cleaner disk to run many times. It cleans the lens and also runs cd on the disk which eventually will get rid of moisture on the circuits and restore your dvd recorder on the LG unit.

Does this model DVD/VCR recorder have an analog tuner or a digital tuner?


Is there a manufacture date on the back of it. The Commission's digital tuner rule specifies that as of March 1, 2007, all new TV sets must include digital tuners. I believe that rule follows when it comes to DVD players with built in tuners. If you bought this before that date then most likely its analog. I see in the owners manual has no listing for a digital tuner. So I would come to the assumption that its analog tuner. Hope this helps!!

How do I record my vhs tapes to Disk


I have done a lot of dubbing on my machine. First make sure the DVD is formatted. When you put in a new disc it should ask you if you want to initialize. Once that is done, switch to VCR mode. push play on the VCR then push the DUB button on the front of the machine. I hope it helps.

Need to hook up dvd/vcr combo with converter box


Connect your rabbit ears to the Insignia. Connect the Insignia to the antenna input on the "cvd/vcr combo". Now turn on the television to show the "cvd/vcr combo".

The Insignia simply goes between your antenna and your television. In your case you also have a vcr so if you want the VCR to be able to play and record digital stations you will need the Insignia between the vcr and the antenna.
