A VCR uses a "RF" signal, where a TV uses a broadcast signal. The standard TV will not record from a security VCR. However, if the TV has a yellow "video in" jack on the back, this will work to record the VCR. You might need to buy a BNC to RCA adaptor at radio shack. Let me know if this does not work.

How to hook up vcr when using a cable box


That will depend upon what you want to do. If you plan to record to the VCR from the cable box, then the cable box will need to directly connect to the VCR, then the output of the VCR is connected to the TV. Unfortunately, most VCRs are analog, not digital, so you will lose HD capability (if you have it) trying to connect this way. You also cannot record one show while watching something else (you will need to be tuned to the channel you are recording). If you want to simply use the VCR to view recorded tapes, then connect the cable box to the TV as per the cable company recommendations, and then make a second connection for the VCR. Of course, your TV will need appropriate and available jacks on the rear to do this. It is difficult to give specifics without knowing the models of the cable box, VCR, and TV.

I have a new digital tv in which i use an antenna to watch it. i hooked up the vcr to it but i cant get it to record the tv show i want recorded.


Your VCR most likely does not have a digital TV tuner. Therefore you must supply a digital TV input signal so you can record it. Unless your TV has a composite video output, you would need another box, namely a digital TV tuner/converter which would connect to the VCR's input. Select the channel to record on the tuner/converter and select on the VCR the input where the tuner is connected.

I recently installed a Comcast digital adapter to my SONY RDR-VX515 DVD Recorder/VCR Combo and then onto the TV. Now, when I try to program the VCR to record, the only channel options are Ch 4, Line 1 and...


Hi and welcome to FixYa

Initially, postback the model number of the Comcast digital adapter and the TV.

Offhand, if the Comcast digital adapter is connected to the Sony through a coaxial patchcord, then the Sony would really have to be set to Ch 4 (or 3). Channel selection is done on the Comcast digital adapter. It is not possible to record one channel while viewing another.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa

I have a security camera outside that runs to tv with rca cables. i want to record to a vcr which is connected to tv by coax. i cant get it to record the camera picture. can u help?


The coax connection is one-way RF only from the VCR to the TV. It cannot be used to record from TV to VCR.
Run the RCA cables to the Line or Aux input on the VCR first. Watch on the TV through the coax connection to the TV. You can watch even when not recording the camera signal on the VCR by setting the output of the VCR to Line instead of a channel.
Another option would be to connect a component (RCA) output from the TV (if there is one) to the VCR Line or Aux input.

Recording on blaupunkt VCR RTV 430/540 from T.V


the VCR should record even without a tv attached.  The VCR will display what channel it is on.  The TV is only for viewing.

 

Cable hook up is ..

1. from the wall (or antenna) to the VCR input jack

2. from VCR output jack to TV input jack

 

Most TVs use channel 3 for VCR viewing.  You will need to hit the TV/VCR button on the VCR also.
