How can I record a music cassette to a music disc on my Magnavox DVD recorder/ VHS --Model # ZV427MG9


You can't burn a CD-A with the ZV427MG9. The unit will not burn to a CD to play in a CD player.

You may be able to record the audio to a DVD with no video source. Connect your cassette player to the Line In audio ports (L/R) at either the back or front of the unit. Depending on your cassette player, you may need a 3.5 mm M to RCA F/F adapter to connect the RCA audio cable to the cassette player's headphone jack. Do not connect a cable to the video input of the composite input unless you have a video on a camera or something to play back. This means that the recorded video may say "No Signal" or will be black or static. (Note: this may not work with this signal issue.)

Set the unit to record to DVD on L1 or L2, as needed, by pressing Source on your remote. Advance the cassette to where you want to record. Press Rec on the DVD unit and then press Play on your cassette player. If you want to identify tracks, Stop the recording and play back and then press Rec and Play again. You are at risk of having issues with the volume during the recording. Clipping of overly-loud sounds and distortion is possible.

When done, finalize the disc, if desired, to play the disc on other DVD players.

If you want to make an audio CD, you would be better off using a computer and connecting the cassette player to the Line In jack of the computer. You do have to make some adjustments to avoid recording the default Microphone input. Use a program like Audacity or any other audio editing program. Record the signal and divide it into tracks, if needed. Now you can filter out any distortion as well. Then save as a WAV file. Use a different program to burn the WAV files to a CD-A. (This must be burned as a mastered disc; my attempts that worked on an older CD player failed if there were gaps between the tracks. Lots of programs will do this; Roxio Creator is one option.)

The manual for the ZV427MG9 is available here: http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/z/zv427mg9_f7/zv427mg9_f7_dfu_aen.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Blank VHS tapes work; Movie VHS tapes don't


Hello statman_4

I have an important question; Are you watching a VHS tape you recorded of another VHS movie? In other words did You rent Ben Hur and record it and then tried to watch the recording? If you did that's your problem. VCRs in the late 1990's (1997-1999) began to employ MacroVision circuitry in all VCRs, and DTR. MacroVision Circuitry makes the VCR record tapes with MacroVision in such a way that the horizontal and vertical sync pulses are not at the proper amplitude, and the AGC (Automatic Gain Control) is tricked into over compensating thus creating the scrambled picture. There is a way around this. You need to buy a video stabilizer SIMA makes such devices and some other companies do to. You feed the signal from your VCR into the unit and it corrects the video image by readjusting the video signal.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

I have a JVC DR MV7SU DVD/Video recorder. How do


If your camcorder allows you to connect to a tv or vcr and allows you to record from it to the camcorder via the rca video input, then you should be able to record it that.  The camcorder must have the RCA audio/video inputs on it to be successful.

Connect DVD recorder to Video player/recorder- transfer VHStodisc


hook the video output from vcr to dvd input at rear, then hook output from dvd to tv input. note; you can not record protected vcr movies you can only record tv shows from sattelite to vcr or dvd recorder. its best to record straight from sattelite to dvd recorder for picture clarity.

Recording from one vhs recorder to another.


Hi,

If your plan is to copy a VHS movie to a blank VHS tape, the connections would require a 3 wire RCA connector/cable. The unit where the original movie will be played will be the player. Connect the yellow video RCA cable to the VIDEO OUT, the red & white to the AUDIO L/R OUT. On the 2nd unit designated as recorder, slip in the blank VHS tape. Connect the other end of the RCA 3 wire cable to yellow VIDEO IN, the red & white to the AUDIO L/R IN. Connect the RF OUT of the 2nd unit (recorder to the ANT IN of a TV set. Set the TV to either Channel 3 or 4 as the case may be.

If the recorder has a manual selector or via remote, pls verify that it is set to Video and not tuner (or channels) input.

Press Record on the recorder (2nd unit), press play on the 1st unit (player). The TV will serve as monitor to your copying progress.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or shoould you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Recording from DVR to Cassette using this?


Well, generally, you simply need a Cable of the RCA 3way A/V cable variety, usually with Red, Yellow & White RCA plugs on the end... there should be corresponding RCA Sockets on each machine.. Plug the leads in colour to colour, then insert tape in VCR and select the Auxiliary Input (Or whatever input it is actually called) to Record from... start "Recording" Then on the DVR start "Play" and ya should be all up & running. What I do first, is set it up on my TV first, using the RCA sockets, set it up so it is all playing clear picture etc.. then I connect up to the VCR. NB: There are "Other" types of "Inputs & Outputs" among them ones called "Composite Video" "S-VHS" "SCART" ALL of these have standard interconnect leads, so if on your machine you DO NOT have the RCA Sockets.. but have one of those "Other" simply procure a Male to Male Cable of that type & then simply substitute the alternate "Cable" for the "RCA" & the rest is the same.
