I have a big screen with mulitple ports and choices. I have to plug the color-coded wires into one of these as listed below for input from DVD player output. My other options of hook up have 1 different color. I also have ports labeled Y / Pb / Pr that appear to be for input.
Then I have to select TV/INPUT on controller to watch video.
ex: TV/INPUT = then select TV; Component 1; component 2;etc... video 1; video 2; etc......I've tried all of the above.

Re: lost manual...I cannot get DVD or VCR to record
You need to decide which set of inputs or outputs you want to use.
To record, and watch what you have recorded on your TV, you will need TWO sets of audio/visual patch cords. One for recording and the other for playing.
Let's start with the recording.
Look for the Line in or video in plugs on your DVD-VCR unit. Some recorders have separate inputs for the VCR and DVD. Others let you select with the remote. Usually Line 1 is at the back and Line 2 is on the front. Your remote will have "recording source" to let you select, or sometimes you can use the channel up and down arrows to select your input source. Your remote will also allow you to select either the DVD or VCR for recording.
Connect the Yellow plug to the Video In socket, and the red and white plugs to audio in., Connect the other end of the cord to the TV or cable box. Yellow goes to Video Out, red and white go to audio out.
Recording from the cable box is much easier because you wiull always have a signal going into the DVD-VCR recorder no matter what happens at the TV.
Now look for the Video out connection on the DVD-VCR recorder. Connect the Yellow plug to video out and the red and white plugs to audio out. Ignore the other connections at this point. They are for RGB component video. Your DVD -VCR should have one output for both functions. Use that one.
Now connect that cord to a Video one or Video 2 input on your TV.
Test the set-up. Play a DVD or a VHS tape and try to bring it in using the TV remote.
Then turn on a program and try to record it on the DVD-VCR, then play it back.
This sounds very complicated, but all that's involved are two patch cords with three plugs on each end - 12 connections in all and color-coded.
YELLOW is always video.

if you TV has a feature called "Monitor" out, then you can take a "Feed"out, via, The AV, link, the Yellow, Video, Red & White Audio. wiring color to color, and selecting EXTERNAL IN on VCR. If this feature is available, whatever is on screen, is displayed out of that "Monitor Video & Audio Socket"
Get a TV manual and a VCR and have a look it will show you how.
I have a dvd recorder with vcr it is a model # zv427mg9 we have lost our manual
and do not know how to finalize the disc. We have transferred video
from vcr to dvd and can't figure out how to finalize, please help?
okay, if you have a cable box (cable out plug to dvd/vcr in), then from the dvd/vcr (cable out plug to tv/monitor). make sure tv/monitor and dvd/vcr are set to ch #3. you swith channels with the cable box ,you are not going to be able to record HBO on dvd (but you can with the vcr), any other cable ch(tnt, history, tbs,we, oxygen and more) is recordable w/ both dvd/vcr
no cable box. take cable wire plug to dvd/vcr in, than other wire is connected to tv/monitor
now go to dvd/vcr with remote, menu, set to catv, scan channels. now when you wish to look at tv the dvd/vcr must be on at all times. again you will not be able to record Premium ch like HBO
hope this help............pls feel free to rate
Grab your A/V composite wires and insert them into the Audio/Video OUTPUTS on the back of the satellite receiver. These are color-coded connections--red to red, white to white and yellow to yellow. The red and white connections are your audio feeds and the yellow is for your video.
Look on the backside of your DVD/VCR dual recorder. You will see similar connections. Connect the other end of the composite wires to the Audio/Video INPUTS on the DVD/VCR dual recorder.
With a second set of A/V composite wires, connect one end to the DVD/VCR dual recorder's A/V OUTPUT and the other end to the television's A/V INPUT. Again, be sure to follow the color code. Also, if your television has more than one available input, be sure to know to which one you made the connections (A/V 1, A/V 2, etc.).
for the black and white screen output of your DVD and VCR.
1) for DVD player: using remote control locate "setup" button and click.a dialogue box should appear indicating " audio setup" video setup" etc..... 2) select and scroll to "video setup". in video setup there should be an option to choose "AUTO" "PAL" or "NTSC" 3) choose "auto" then check if any change in screen color.
for VCR, locate a switch or button indicating "PAL" "Auto""PAL SECAM" "NTSC". same with the dvd choose and select "auto"
note: if you still have the manual for both VCR and DVD check the instruction with regards to video color setting.
On the back, there are three ports that are color-coded and match the cables. Take the yellow cable and plug it into the yellow port. Do the same with the red and white. Take the other end of the cables and plug them into your TV or VCR. Most TVs and VCRs have ports for the cables on either the back or front, and are also color-coded. Plug the yellow cable into the yellow plug on your TV/VCR, and repeat for the red and white cables.
You can hook your dvd player in tv by using component video input terminal having green-red-blue colors for video signal and red-white for audio signal. so total 5 wires been used here. color order should be exact at both units, tv and dvd player i.e green to green, blue to blue and so on.
vcr can be hooked at composite video input in tv having 3 pins, yellow for video, red-white for audio in both units, vcr and tv. pins color should be exact on both units.
Should be just as simple as plugging in the RCA jacks from the output of the VCR to the input of the DVD recorder. Make sure you pass the first grade color scheme and match the colors up! Yellow to yellow....red to red.....white to white...you get the idea.
