Question about GoVideo VR3845 DVD Recorder/VCR

6 Answers

Can't view setup menu or tv

GoVideoDVR 4400.
Connections: Dish Network receiver to DVR to TV with coax cables. DVR out to TV in with rd, white, yellow cables plus S Video cable. Plays DVDs just fine, but if I try "setup", I just see the blue screen with logo. Same happens when I try to view TV with DRV turned on and set to line one. With DRV off, TV comes through fine.

This is used VCR that came with motor home. Have it set up in house. Never tried it when hooked up in motor home.

Thanks.

    My Dish Network card is fine.

  • RBBERKE Dec 22, 2008

    This was not helpful, as my connections were correct. The problem is solved, however: I hit Setup while a video was playing, and the setup menu appeared. Somehow, the TV/Video button was also enabled. Thanks, anyhow.

Pick up a 4 in 1 Disqc switch run up to 4 sats in to the dvr. I believe that your dvr signsl is not compatible with the vcr, it should be coming thru either 03 or 73 on your tv. But a vcr is not compatable unless it is going thru too many sources, it should be one wire from each lnb to the switch and the line from the switch direct to the monitor or tv. The signal from the sat is digital mpeg 2 or mpeg 4, the vcr is probablly an old analog type, I have never heard of anyone getting a vcr to work with satalitte. They are changing everything to mpeg 4 by the end of the year, and now the hd channels are on 61 bird, you need 3lnb's on 2 sat's now.

Does this deck have a progressive scan output? the cable jacks will be red, green and blue, if it does and the player is set to the progressive scan video output option and u are now using just a singe yellow video cable you will see no picture, just a blue screen, in order to get the player out of this mode u will need the three red, blue and green output cables hooked up to a TV that has progressive scan cable inputs(red,green and blue), if not u have no way to see the menu to take the DVD player out of the progressive scan output mode. I had this issue on my player that I moved to another older TV that had no input for progressive scan, ending up calling DVD player maker for the above info.

Have you the manual for this VCR? if not try this:
Cable Box/Satellite Receiver Connections
Follow these steps to connect a cable box or satellite receiver to your
DVD+VCR:
1 Connect incoming cable to cable box Connect a coaxial cable
from your cable TV or satellite jack to the input jack on your cable box/satellite
receiver.
2 Connect cable box to DVD+VCR Connect a second coaxial cable
from the output jack on the cable box/satellite receiver to the IN (FROM
ANT.) jack on the back panel of the DVD+VCR.
3 Connect DVD+VCR to TV Connect an additional coaxial cable from
the OUT (TO TV) jack on the back panel of the DVD+VCR to the antenna in
jack on your television.
OR
Connect the supplied audio/video cable from the LINE OUT jacks on the
DVD+VCR back panel to the line in jacks on your television.
4 Power on DVD+VCR, TV & cable box Plug the DVD+VCR power
cord into a standard 120V/60Hz wall outlet, and turn on your television,
DVD+VCR and cable box/satellite receiver.
5 Select Channel 3 or Line Tune your television to channel 3, or to the
TV’s Line/Aux input.
• The Language/Langue/Idioma menu should appear on your
television screen. Please proceed with Auto Setup on page 15.
• Use your cable box/satellite receiver to select channels.
If you are not getting a good picture, try changing the RF Output
to channel 4; see page 17.
• This method of connecting a cable box allows you to record
scrambled channels, but you will not be able to watch a second
channel while a recording is in progress. If you want to record
from basic cable and watch scrambled channels simultaneously

hope this helps and regards

Try to switch the input channels using the TV remote.

    If by pressing the setup you get a blue screen on TV, try switching input channel selector on TV, if you find again the DVD signal, then there may be an interference between TV and DVD remote frequencies.

    If instead the DVD freezes when you press setup, and you have to restart it, then the machine is defective. In that case it will be necessary to reinstall the firmware, and firmware for Govideo is not easy to find.

Trying to connect Magnavox MWR 10D6 DVD/Recorder to Sanyo HDTV. TV is connected to Dish network through coax. cable.


Unfortunately, the Magnavox MWR10D6 recorder can not record HD signals. It's only video inputs are coax (RF) and composite video; both are limited to 480i (SD). NTSC (analog signals) are translated to video.

Your best recording option is to connect the composite video output of the Dish receiver to the video input (yellow for video, red and white for audio) of the recorder. Then set the receiver to the channel that you want to record and set the recorder to Line In.

HD recorders may exist. They are much more expensive than the SD versions.

I wish that I had better news for you. The manual for the MWR10D6 is available from Funai here: http://www.funai-corp.com/support/om/MWR10D6.pdf .

What channel does the tv have to be on - I have dish network - do I leave the dish off or on and move it to a certain channel?


First check what channel or input your TV is currently on bypowering the TV off then back on and noting the channel or input that appearson screen when the TV is powered on. If you are using a Coax Cable toconnect the receiver to TV1, check the receiver's back panel for the outputname. If your receiver has a "TV CH 3/4 out" (non-ViPReceiver): Tune TV to channel 3 or channel 4, if it has"Home Distribution" output (ViP Receiver): Tune TV to channel 62or 75. If using non-Coax (RCA, Component, or HDMI) to connectreceiver to TV1, cycle through the inputs until picture appears. In your casesince you have the Toshiba XDE500 connected between the receiver and TV, tuneTV and component to channel 3/4 (coax) or correct input. Hope this helps, andhank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!

I have surroundsound. I have dish network with hd dvr. I have a sony bravia hd tv. I have a dvd player, and cd player. I have a magnavox dvd recorder. I want to record from my dvr to my dvd recorder. ...


To get the functionality you're looking for you'll need to to take the cable running from your DVR output and connect it to the input on your DVD recorder. Next you want to connect a cable from your DVD recorder output and connect it to your TV. If this is an HD set up you want to use HD Cables for all of the connections.

Have a HDTV. Cable hooked in it. Have the yellow, red, and white in the places where the picture shows. No TV comes in from the DVD/VCR machine. Can watch a movie, but no TV.


Just to clarify, you are not using a cable or SAT box? Coax running directly into the tv correct? If so, go to the Menu on the tv remote. Find and select connections and/or cable connections. Be sure "Cable" is selected and not "Air". Let it auto format after selected. When completed, you should be selecting "TV" from the Input selector on the remote. Usually the first in the list of Inputs. Let me know if this helped.
Not sure what you mean by Yellow, Red and White showing.

Problems establishing audio output from DVD RW to TV


If you own a Digital Video Recorder, such as TiVo, or a DVR from a Cable or Satellite provider, then you know you can record to the device's hard drive to view TV shows at a later time, much like the old VCR. However, saving those TV shows becomes difficult as the Hard Drive starts to fill up. The answer to saving your shows is to record them to DVD! This can be accomplished easily by hooking up a DVD Recorder to your DVR
Here's How:
  1. 1)record a TV show on your DVR that you want to save to DVD!
  2. 2)Turn on the DVR, DVD Recorder and the TV that the DVD Recorder is connected to. In my case, I have my Samsung DVD Recorder (no hard drive) hooked up to my TV via an RCA Audio/Video cable from the rear outputs on the DVD Recorder to the rear RCA inputs on my TV. I use a seperate DVD Player for playing DVDs, but if you use your DVD Recorder as a player as well, use the best cable connections you can to connect to the TV. See the articleTypes of A/V Cables for more info.
  3. 3)Connect an S-Video or RCA video cable and composite stereo cables (red and white RCA plugs) from the DVR to the inputs on your DVD Recorder. If your TV has Component inputs, connect the Component Out from the DVD Recorder to the Component In on the TV, otherwise you can use S-Video or Composite. You will still need to use RCA audio with your video connection.
  4. 4)Change the input on your DVD Recorder to match the inputs you are using. Since I'm using the rear S-Video input, I change my input to "L1", which is the input for recording using the rear S-Video input. If I was recording using the front analog cables it would be "L2", the front Firewire input, "DV". The input select can typically be changed using the DVD Recorder remote.
  5. further instructions continued in my next comment post please read.

Help Me!


My tv has several video inputs & this is the way I did mine. I ran the red,white & yellow cable from the dish box to "video 1" on the tv. For the Magnavox I ran a coax cable from the dish receiver out to the rear of the Magnavox & the red,white,yellow from the magnavox to the tv "video 2". Check the dish box to see if the switch in the back reads channel 3 or 4 & set your magnavox to the same. Make sure in the setup you have it set to rear connections. If you have picture on both video settings on the tv everything is golden. Hope this helps.

How to record ?


I don't know a whole lot about electronic equipment, but I've never seen anything connected in so many ways at the same time. Maybe the antenna and one other type of connection. The different signals from all the connections are probably confusing each other. I would try one connection at a time to see if the problem improves. Good Luck.
