Question about RCA VR705HF VHS/S-VHS playback VCR
I have a monitor inside & two cameras outside. I want to connect my VCR (VR705HF) to a motion detector,outside. Which will turn the power on to the VCR & record what movement occured out side. & then in 3 min. plus, if no motion occurs, it will turn the power off. AND this will keep going off & on. This way its not recording all the time, only when the power is tripped on. Is there a way to set the VCR up to do this? If not, do they make a VCR to do this? I think this would work if we went on a short vacation.
Good question HUH? Happy Holidys Jack

Are you sure the reciever is coming through the vcr.? are you hooking it up through a/v on vcr?
if so hook from a/v out from directv to a/v in
jacks on back of vcr. and turn vcr on a/v channel
to record it. you will see the picture as you record it. if the vcr isn't on a/v channel it won't record it
If you use ch 4 or 3 to record it you
hook up directv to cable in on vcr and you
have to turn vcr on that channel and see it coming
through it you have to push a button on satlette
remote to make it come on the vcr on the channel
or it will record snow. and you have to push
another button on vcr remote if you haven't
already to get the vcr on ch 4 or 3 on your tv
or if u got it through a/v turn tv to a/v channnel.
just beacuse you see the picture coming through
your tv doesn't mean it going through your vcr
you could be just seeing it through the tv only.
you will see the vcrs graphics or vcr channel number on your
tv too along with the directv channel if it's hooked
up right. notice the vcr won't record it's own
graphics or channel number on the screen but it will record the directv's graphics. and it won't record the tv's own grapic channel number either.
to make sure it's right you will see 3 graphics on
your tv the own tv's channel number or a/v
the directvs and the vcr's channel number or a/v
on your tv if you see these you know it's hook up

SOURCE: VCR POWER ON PROBLEM
On vcr power supplies usually first component to go is a capacitor, check if its blown, or test it if you have a meter capable, next check diodes and resistors, also check the resistors and diodes on all the boards( they may have blown if a cap has blown) If there was smoke or a smell its usually a resistor to look for. When you replace them replace them with a higher votage cap.. Example 15v 1000uF cap with a 25v -35v 1000uF cap( this is just to avoid the problem from happening again.

SOURCE: recording 3 digit channels
With the VCR connected to DirecTV, you're not picking the channel with the VCR anymore. You're picking the channel on the DirecTV receiver, and the VCR will record on channel 3 or 4 (if you've hooked the receiver up using the RF output to the VCR) or through its line (A/V) inputs if you're using those. The tuning range of the VCR is completely unimportant.
With your new system, though, there's one big drawback. Since the VCR is always set for channel 3 or 4, or its line input, and you're changing channels on the DirecTV receiver, you can't program the VCR to record several different channels if you go out. You won't be home to change channels on the receiver, so the only channel you'll be able to record is whichever one you've selected before you go out. Remember the VCR is taping the output of the satellite receiver, and not the satellite channel directly. If you record on some channel other than the receiver's output channel, there won't be anything there. All you'll get is snow or a blank screen.
