Re: watching videos on a computer

Yes. DVDs are easy as you probably already know, you just need a DVD capable drive and appropreate software to play. VHS tapes are another matter altogether. You'll have to purchase something that will convert the analog signal from the VHS player to a digital signal your PC can use. I have a device I use to convert VHS tapes to DVD (ADS technologies) I could use to watch tapes but the software leaves a lot to be desred.

Vcr/dvd player will not let me watch cable through it

There should be video in and video out on the dvd player. You shouldhave the wires going from video out on the cable box to video in on the vcr. Then you should have video out on the vcr going into the tv

Connecting TV to DVD / VCR Recorder

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

I am assuming that what you intend to do is:
  • record a TV channel/program/show either on VCR or DVD;
  • while at the same time watching another TV channel/program/show directly on the TV.
Yes, but only if you are not using/needing a cable decoder box. To do this, the coaxial cable from your provider would have to be made to supply both the RF/ANT/CABLE IN of the VCR/DVD and the TV. To accomplish this, you would need a 2-way splitter. One input to the splitter, 2 outputs, one each for the DVD/VCR and the TV. The DVD/VCR would have to be connected to the TV using yellow, white & red RCA cables. To watch DVD, VCR and/or what is being recorded on the DVD/VCR, set the TV to Video mode. To watch regular TV, select the channels on the TV.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful wouldbe detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address yourconcern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate it at all. Cheers.

Teac digital set top box prompt every five seconds

I had the same problem - pretty easy fix. You'll need a usb flash drive with all other files removed. Go to following link:

Print out the instructions and make sure you have winzip installed on your computer. Instructions were pretty easy to follow and seemed to fix the problem. I haven't watched the TV for a long period of time, but it seemed to sort out the problem you described and system seemed to run better than previously eg. didn't hang - receception better.

Good luck

Unable to record one tv channel while watching another tv channel

You CAN record one channel and watch another with satellite service, but it would require two separate DBS receivers. The issue is that all satellite broadcasting is encrypted until it hits the receiver, which decodes it and transmits it outward toward your other AV devices. If it weren't for the receiver, connecting the coax cable to your other devices and trying to tune channels with them would yield no signal and possibly much frustration. You would need to split the signal into each receiver and have one connected to the television via one input and the other to the recorder then to the TV via another input.

With cable, you can split the signal without having to have two boxes - this way the QAM tuner in the cable box is still capable of tuning channels while the recorder can tuner basic cable channels for recording separately. You can also have the cable box connected to the recorder via composite so that you can record premium stations on a DVD recorder input mode anytime you like - but you would have to be watching that channel at the same time unless the DVD recorder had a pass-through RF signal (rather than a composite clone) - meaning you could also use coaxial to your television from the recorder and tune channels separately on your television while the recorder is recording one channel.

A lot of what-ifs there, but it is all quite possible.

You can watch the TV programs

available for the RF converter
setting.) Be sure to connect the
unit to a TV using the RF cable.
Select channel 3 on your TV.
Press [VIDEO/TV] on the remote
• If noise appears, change the
RF output channel of the unit to
CH 4 by pressing [VIDEO/TV]
for 3 seconds. The RF output
