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.

Not receiving signal


Do you have all connections hand tight? Are you getting an error message on the screen? What type of cable are you using to connect to the TV, Coax or RCA?


If you're not getting an error message what type of cable are you using? If it's a Coax Cable, you will want to make sure the TV is on channel 3 or 4. If you're using an RCA Cable, you will need to check the Input channel.

Thanks

I own a Dish Network DVR-625 receiver. On TV2, the picture is all fuzzy. I have tried replacing the coax cable and the TV is brand new and picture looks good when connected to another receiver. Could it...


Michlward136,

It does sound like it's the tuner on that receiver going bad, and I can definitely help you get that taken care of. You may need a replacement receiver to be mailed out which I can definitely help with.

Whenever you're ready to get that setup you can reach me at thomas.faust@dishnetwork.com, all I will need is your account or phone # and I can get that setup!

Is there a way to set the DVR to record only on TV 1? I share with another couple and their recordings are messing with my TV viewing on TV 2.. Thank you


utdivemaster

When timers are setup, it will record by default (unless it is changed) to TV 2. You can go into the receiver menu by pressing the Menu button on the remote. This will bring up the Main Menu on TV 1. Press 8 (Preferences) and then 5 (Record Plus). Just change the Record Preference to TV 1 instead of TV 2. If 2 timers are setup and they overlap, it will record to TV 2. I hope this helps.

Unhooked all lines in back of tv cant remember to rehook up have2


granmabj,

There are common connections to each receiver but there are unique connections also depending on the receiver. Solo receivers have a coax cable coming from the Dish outside connected to Satellite In. Duo receivers and DVR HD receivers have the coax cable that comes from the dish outside that connects to Satellite 1 and Satellite 2 using a splitter. There is also a cable (coax, RCA (yellow, white, red) or component (green, blue, red - video, white, red - audio) or an HDMI if HD) connected from the receiver to the TV 1. For a duo receiver TV 2 may be backfed on the cable coming from the dish outside using diplexers. This may sound confusing but you can call 1-800-333-3474 for assistance.

I got dish net work installed yesterday and it worked fine but when i turned the tv on the next day it was nothing but static and i cant figure out how to fix it so whats wrong and how can i fix it?


Guest,

The static you are getting on your TV is because the TV is not on the correct channel or input setting. With the 311 receiver, there is either a coax or an RCA cable (yellow, white, red) going from the receiver to the TV. If you have a coax cable, the TV should be on channel 3 or 4 (usually channel 3). With the RCA cable, the TV should be on an input setting. You'll need to go through your input settings until you find the picture. Of course your DISH receiver needs to be powered on. I hope this helps.

With all receivers, depending upon the type cable going from the receiver to the TV, the TV is set either to a channel or an input setting (if using any cable other than a coax cable). I hope this helps.

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.

DISH Network DVR-625 DTV - AUDIO PROBLEM ON LOCAL CHANNELS ONLY


I am probably stating the obvious here but here it goes:
If the 625 is connected to the tv using coax directly try using the RCA jacks to connect directly to the tv. If the 625 goes through a peripheral first, eliminate that peripheral and conect directly to the tv.If the problem exists with different media connections still at the same tv you can remove the coax off of the TV1(3-4) output on the back of the 625 and attach it to the TV2(CH60-73) output.You would then change your tv channel from 3 or 4 to ch 60air or 73 cable(which will be the same channel that TV2 is normally on in the remote room without the 625) Once you are on the right channel you will be able to tune TV1 to your local channel using the TV2 remote. If the audio is good here it eliminates the TV coax input on the TV1 and the coax cable connecting it as the source of the problem. You will have already eliminated any other inputs on the same tv as being faulty by using the other connecting media leaving you with the internal components of the receiver as being faulty. In this situation I know of no recourse except the obvious.

New TV hookup


Erica,
You should have no problem with this. I have provided a picture of your model below for clarification. One end of the coax will attach to the 3-4 OUT on the back of the receiver and the other end will go to the NEW tv's coax input. If your set has two coax inputs you may have to select the port that you connect to in the menu portion of the tv. If the new tv does not have a coax input you can use RCA jacks which are red/white and yellow and connect those to the TV 1 output on the back of the receiver and the other end to one of the inputs on the back of the tv- this will require you to select the input source you connect to again e.g AUDIO 1, AUDIO2 etc. If you have a VCR run the coax from the 3-4 on the back of the receiver to the antenna inon the back of the VCR -usually the top port, then run another coax from the output- bottom port to the coax input on your tv. I hope I have been of some assistance to you and Thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can assist you further please let me know.
