Problems with DVD/VCR Player and Tivo

I am unable to get my new DVD/VCR show anything. Currently I also have Tivo and if we try to connect without the Tivo box it does all it is supposed to do: copy, play back. With Tivo the signal doesn't come through the TV at all.

Hi ccraigo
To answer your question;
Your motorola will connect directly(not through the dvd) to the tv set into one of the input ,(preferably using hdmi or component cables for hd) and the dvd will use a different input,
All you have to do then is switch between which one you want to watch.
Hope this help Cheers

Humax Tivo Stuck on the welcome screen

I just had the same problem with mine and found another post that at least fixed mine.

I had a DVD in the unit as it was restarting. I took a flathead screwdriver and opened up the DVD slot by inserting at the top right corner and opening the door. On the inside, at the bottom right, is a button that ejects the DVD player (the eject button on the outside won't work while it's booting up). I ejected the DVD that was in it, unplugged the unit for 30 seconds, and then it rebooted just fine.

Hope it works out for you too...

I have a ViP 722. It has no rf output for TV1, just the hookup for TV2. The multi RCA hookup for HD. HD is not as important to me as is a clean picture and audio on my TV. No matter how I do it, I get a...

Okay I am not positive I have this right as far as the configuration of the system but I will give it a shot. If you run the 722 to the tv using rca's you get the hum. I assume this as there are no inputs on a dish 722 receiver. I can suggest one possible solution which is to buy an rf modulator. It will convert the signal from rca to coax so you can connect as you wish. There are several types out there so ensure you get the one that converts from rca to coax. I would suggest the following configuration: Remove all connections from tv and hook 722 up via rca's to rca input 1 on the tv, check for hum. If it is present now you need a new 722 as it is passing to much power thru the connection. If there is no hum connect your cable and tivo to the tv via whatever inputs you have remaining. Lastly connect the DVD player to another input that is free. You will have to system through your inputs to view the three sources but should not have the hum. I hope this solves your issue. Thanks for using Fix Ya and let me know if I can be of further assistance.

New TV hookup

You should have no problem with this. I have provided a picture of your model below for clarification. One end of the coax will attach to the 3-4 OUT on the back of the receiver and the other end will go to the NEW tv's coax input. If your set has two coax inputs you may have to select the port that you connect to in the menu portion of the tv. If the new tv does not have a coax input you can use RCA jacks which are red/white and yellow and connect those to the TV 1 output on the back of the receiver and the other end to one of the inputs on the back of the tv- this will require you to select the input source you connect to again e.g AUDIO 1, AUDIO2 etc. If you have a VCR run the coax from the 3-4 on the back of the receiver to the antenna inon the back of the VCR -usually the top port, then run another coax from the output- bottom port to the coax input on your tv. I hope I have been of some assistance to you and Thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can assist you further please let me know.

How do you save from your Tivo to your vcr

For the best picture you can run RCA video and audio cables to the video and audio inputs on your VCR. Another way would be to connect your TV out to your VCR Ant in and then the TV out from the VCR to your TV. Tune your TV to channel 3 or 4 (set on the VCR) Turn on the VCR and you should see a picture. This should work without any problem. If it doesn't, then it is possible that your VCR has anti-copy firmware installed to inhibit or stop the copy process when triggered by a code from the program being aired. (GO Video has this) Many older VCR's do not. Try copying directly off the air or a commecial and see if your VCR can record that. If it can, then your VCR is equipped with a Macromedia Anti-piracy chipset and firmware. If it can't copy ANYTHING, then there is a problem with your cables or VCR. If you try replacing the cables with different ones, and it still doesn't work, then you VCR is defective and may require servicing.
