    BEFORE OUR UPGRADE WITH THE DISH NETWORK WHERE WE HAVE TO TUNE TO CHANNEL 73 TO WATCH DISH, WE WERE SET ON CHANNEL 4 ON THE BACK OF THE VCR AND ON THE TV. NOW WITH THE UPGRADE, I PUT IN A TAPE AND PRESS PLAY, NOTHING ON SCREEN; CHANGED TV CHANNEL TO 4 - AGAIN NOTHING. SO... ANY HELP?

    THANK YOU.

Connect dvd/vcr to HD-tv via dish network


Hey my nameis Mike Houston of DISH Network and I see where you want to run the SanyoDVW-6000 DVD/VCR Player to the DISH Network receiver. You can run the SanyoDVD/VCR directly to the TV and pick the channel you want to record and it willrecord the channel showing.

I have Dish network. I want to record TV onto the VCR, but cannot get channels to record. i can playback videotapes and the record works, but cannot figure out how to get the signal to record.


The output of the Dish Network box should be hooked to the input of the VCR.
The output of the VCR should be hooked to the input of the TV.
The VCR should be on channel 3 to record. Select channel to be recorded on the Dish Network box.

It sounds like you have Dish Network box output hooked to TV input.
& VCR output hooked to an aux. input on the TV.

Can't view tapes on vcr


I assume that you are coming in on channel 73 because you don't have a line level input on the display (tv) you are using. If that is the case, your options are limited. If you DO have a line input to the monitor, run the VCR to that input and just switch to that input when you want to use the VCR. If you have RF in only, -that would be the screw on type connector- you would have to have the same kind of output on the VCR. Understand, the VCR will be outputting to channel 3 or 4, so you would need a 2x rf switch, and you would have to change from channel 73 to 3 or 4 whenever you wanted to watch a movie. There may be other options, but I don't really know what you have.

Hooking up a tv


Hi first of all are you using scart leads to plug into each device here is how it should be set up ok
1. Scart lead from dish network into vcr
2. then other scart from vcr into tv
3. Now ti recieve the signal from the dish network you need to have the telly on the right av channel so that its picking up the signal from the vcr.
you can test this by changing the channel on the vcr controll or direct via buttons on vcr.
If the channels change then your on the right av channel.
Now when your on right channel on telly you need to now make sure dish network is on and on a channel or press the tv guide button just so you know what your looking for when the picture comes through.
You need to press av on the vcr controll this will then pick up the signal from the dish network via the scart lead as av is the channel for scart lead.
say if you was recording from dish net to vcr you would put the vcr on av to pick up the signal so press av on vcr controll this should then allow you to watch the dish network with no problems.
Let me know if you still cant and ill assist you further if it dont work tell me what you have done so i know how much you have done ok

I suggest you get the Tape path cleaned up. Could be dirty video heads or a dirty Control Head. Use a good 'wet' type cleaning cassette.

Will only display on ch 3


You will need to take the original remoter and go into the menu, find the channel set up and reprogram the VCR for the channels, as when you lost power the channels also went out because of the memory chips need the power to hold the data.
