Tell the vcr to record the output channel of the converter box (usually 3 or 4).

The chain of cabling that you have should go like this; First in line should be the wall supplying the cable box. Then, the cable box connects to the VCR, then the out of the VCR should go to the TV. Select whatever channel you desire, make sure that the VCR is on Channel 3 or 4, (Whichever the back of the cable box is set) then select 3,4 or line/AUX to see the results....accordianman

Cannot get video on my Orion model VRO 211B


Could be a connection problem. Pins on plugs can become bent or damaged, sometimes it is the socket that the plug fits into that becomes damaged. Try a different connection lead.

Digital programing


By the look of it you would need to connect a digital set box to it to record any TV programs, seeing that most countries are switching off or have switched off analogue TV. The video would then pass any signal it had recorded via a scart lead to any TV with one of those sockets.

My vcr recorded my shows before i switched to a digital adapter now i cant get it to record anything ive tried everything


If the digital adaptor is connected to your TV, then the VCR will not get any signals to record. The VCR will also have to be converted, by adding another digital box, unless the first box has two digital tuners! You can connect another box if the VCR has two scart sockets, the second box connected to the other scart socket. To record after connection, leave the box on, set to the channel you want to record, and set the timer on the video. However when selecting the channel to record make certain that you select the scart socket with the box connected to it. Also make certain (if the VCR has it) PDC is set to OFF as it no longer works.
This way you can record shows while watching anothe channel.

I want to connect our VCR to the new Sharp HDTV,but I do not find audio,video out on the tv.How do I link the two?


Some HDTVs can output analog video and audio but if you say your HDTV does not, then you would have to use some other tuner/box/decoder/converter such as a cable box if you have cable TV service or a DTV converter box for over-the-air TV or a satellite box. The VCR would connect to the tuner/converter box and record analog video and audio using the RCA yellow video and white audio jacks. Standard VCRs cannot record high-def video except as down-converted analog video.

The VCR would then connect to the HDTVs inputs (yellow, white) for playback.

I have a new digital tv in which i use an antenna to watch it. i hooked up the vcr to it but i cant get it to record the tv show i want recorded.


Your VCR most likely does not have a digital TV tuner. Therefore you must supply a digital TV input signal so you can record it. Unless your TV has a composite video output, you would need another box, namely a digital TV tuner/converter which would connect to the VCR's input. Select the channel to record on the tuner/converter and select on the VCR the input where the tuner is connected.

You need to set the vcr to channel 3 or 4 (whatever channel the digital converter box is set to broadcast on) to record a program. The digital converter box has to be set to the channel you want to record the show from.

Use only one box.
Connection should be:::Video Source(cable, antenne) connected to converter box:::::Converter box connected to VCR:::VCR connected to TV.

My Zenith VCR is not working with the digital converter box


When the VCR is "off" the converter signal should go right through the box, which you say it does. Then, when you turn the VCR "on" the picture disappears. That, so far, how it should be. To get your picture back while the VCR is "on" you must set the VCR to "receive" channel 3, and use your new converter box to change channels...accordianman

DTV Converter hookup


Is it possible to record TV programming on a VCR when using a DTV converter? h1 = document.getElementById("title").getElementsByTagName("h1")[0];h1.innerHTML = widont(h1.innerHTML); Hi,

I had the same problem and found this answer that worked for me. Hope this does the trick for you.

Simple stated, your VCR must be set to channel 3 also. Check it out.

  1. You must have the VCR tuned to record on channel 3.
  2. You must have the VCR connected to output signal of the DTV converter box. In other words, the converter box must be connected between the antenna and the VCR. So, the likely configuration you would use with a coaxial cable is antenna to DTV converter to VCR to TV.
  3. You must tune the DTV converter to the channel you want to record prior to recording. The VCR won't be able to change channels on the DTV converter.
  4. You will be able to use the timed record function on the VCR but you must adhere to steps 1-3.
If this sounds freakishly familiar to recording on a digital cable or satellite set-top box, you are right. It is exactly like recording a signal from a digital cable box or satellite receiver. While it may be inconvenient to perform the steps above, at least the option still exists to record on a VCR while using a DTV converter box.
Disadvantage of DTV Converter: You will lose the ability to watch one program and record another with the DTV converter. Sorry for the bad news.
The reason is the tuner. The VCR tuner is useless with digital except for recognizing channel 3. The digital converter is a single tuner item so it only receives one station at a time.
