HELP! I can't figure out how to Connect my Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo to my older TV

My wife bought me a Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo for Christmas. She wants me to transfer my old vhs tapes to dvds. Also to record shows or movies onto DVDs. Problem is that I have an older Magnavox TV and had to buy a single splitter. But I still can't figure out how to hook up the TV to the DVD/VCR Combo and then to my cable box. I just don't get it! Please....any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.

How do I connect an older model dvd player (2008)to my older model tv set both of them are sylvania.

Your DVD /VCR has RCA (phono) connectors for the outputs. Check your TV has the same for the inputs. If it has buy a three way RCA lead from eBay.

How do you record a t.v. show using the VCR on a Sanyo DVW-6100 combo?

Use a "1-to-2" splitter on the cable between the output from the Direct TV box and your TV. Connect 1 of the 2 to your TV.
Connect the other cable to your VCR.

Having problems connecting dvd vcr combo to tv

Hey Pat. Red Yellow White Plugs into back of MVD4544. Red Yellow and white plugs into back of TV. If you have an older TV that has only coax cable outlet, go to Radio Shack or Best Buy and get an RF Modulator. You may need to get another set of Red Yellow White Plugs if you have a cable box. The front connections are Video 2, if placed on the back they are Video 1. When you first turn the DVD/VCR player on, be sure to select the appropriate setting. If you figure out how to timer record on this please let me know. No where in the 52 page book is there any info and their website is a joke. Good Luck.
