Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player
I think I have the unit hooked correctly to the TV. I can watch a DVD/VHS, however; I cannot record and then watch. I only get a blank screen. The TV is a Panosonic Cinema Vision big screen( and the DVD/VCR is a Magnovox (zv420mw8). I have the cables hooked from the cable box output to the DVD/VHS input, then the DVD/VHS output to the TV input (there are 4 inputs). On the remote I have to push the TV/INPUT button which gives me screen choices. I select COMPONENT 1 and I can watch a DVD, however; when I watch TV, I have to push TV/INPUT and select TV.When I try to record, I am on TV selection. Then when I try to watch, I have to push TV/INPUT and select COMPONENT 1 but all I get is a blank screen that is slightly statically as if it tried to record somewhere, but I can select from any other choices after pushing TV/INPUT and I don't get anything. I believe my problem to be in the correct operation of the remote choices/ channels/ etc. but I have tried most all scenarios.
You can record. From antenna to converter box, from converter box to vcr. From vcr to TV.
TV on Channnel 3 VCR on channel 3, and set channel on converter box. Then Record.
Time recording works the same way, but you can set for only one channel at a time. Tht is the only restriction that I have not overcome. The converter box sets the channel. Gee Whizz
