I have the emerson vcr model ev467 and it has hardly been used. Went to record a tv program today and when i went to play back the tape, nothing was on it. All indicators were on, so i thought it was...


do you have a cable box connected. If you do you have to tell the vcr to record on channel 3 or 4 (whichever you have the tv tune to regularly) then put the cable box on the channel you want to record the show on

I want to set up my video recorder to my tv and have forgotten how to do it. I have connected the two by aeriel but cannot see what else to do.


Youe aerial should be in the rear of the VCR & the other cable (flylead) should come from the output connection of the VCR & into the TV. To easily find the VCR channel insert a film tape into the video & press play, now selecting the VCR channel on the TV (EG. channel number 0) now you will need to go into the manual tuning on the TV & search until it finds the playback film, once this happens, store this setting. An easier alternative would be to buy a scart connector & connect this from the VCR to the TV & then the video channel will show on the AV setting on the TV, this saves you any tuning problem.

Connect vcr to jvc c2033us tv


You will need to put your aerial into the rear uhf socket of the VCR then take another connecting lead (flylead) from the out of the VCR & put this into the aerial socket of the TV. You will now need to select a channel on the TV (best to use channel zero) & tune the TV to the VCR signal. The best way to do this is to put in a recorded tape eg a film /press play/ then tune the TV until you pick up the playback of the film, then store this on the TV. This will give you your VCR channel. You will now need to tune the VCR to your broadcasted stations so that you can record.

Sharp VCR hooked up to cable tv, i/p to vcr then out to tv.


I believe that I have the solution to that problem... When you are hooked up to cable or dish and use a VCR, you MUST have the program you wish to tape playing on the Cable or dish program, therefore the VCR needs to be tuned to channel 3 or 4 {whichever is the unused channel in your area) I believe that all you have to do is make sure that the TV is tuned to the channel you wish to tape and program the VCR to Channel 3 (at my area) or channel 4.

I hope this works for you. I have VCRs hooked up to all my sets and this is how mine work.

Problems tuning TV and SLV-900


the video recorder has it's own tuner you do not actually record from the tv... think of the vcr as like a tv but without a screen... connect to your tv via a scart lead and while you are on the vcr's 'channel' (so you could see a tape playing on your tv) and access the menu on you vcr (not the tv's menu) choos auto tune if the vcr supports it or manual tune if it has no auto tune and tune in the required channels on your vcr... it is simply then a matter of selecting on your vcr which channel you wish to record

Vcr tuning


If you are using AV leads, switch the TV to the AV channel.If you are using a coax lead, choose channel 0, put a tape in the player, and tune the Tv (probably on the UHF channel) until the movie appears.

ZENEITH DTT900 ANALOG TO DIGITAL CONVERTER BOX CONNECTIONS


Can't go through the VCR in the normal way. The DTV box must be tuned to the channel you want to record and left there. Cannot tell VCR to tape one channel and watch another nor tape multiple timed and multiple channel shows unless the DTV is tuned to that specific channel. This makes most VSR functions useless.

Akai VSG285 video - I can't tune any TV stations thru to the VCR?


This sounds like a hookup or programming problem.

The typical hookup is cable/satellite box output to VCR antenna/RF input, then VCR antenna/RF output to television input. Since you are able to watch pre-recorded tapes, the latter is already correct. There are other ways to connect, using the audio/video outputs of VCR to audio/video inputs of the TV. Older or low end TV sets may not have these connections.

If by chance you are using an outdoor antenna (not cable or satellite) then the antenna connects to VCR antenna/RF input and VCR output as above. You will also need to program the VCR into the stations- most late VCRs will scan for active channels, and program themselves to those channels.

I'm not sure of the capabilities of newer cable & sat boxes, but generally, you had to tune that box to the channel you wanted to record. The VCR is set to channel 3 or 4 depending on the output of the cable box.

Lastly, most VCRs of the last 10+ years require the remote to setup advanced functions, such as timed record, date & channel setup functions. The buttons on the VCR itself only do very basic functions, Stop/Play/Rewind/F-forward/Eject etc.

If you don't have the orig. remote, some universal remotes may be able to do advanced programming functions.

Vcr won't record tv


You have to plug the antenna to the VCR, in the "Antenna IN" plug, from there it goes to the "TV OUT".

You use the VCR to tune the TV and choose record according to your VCR model.
Hope That Helps!

Connect Rabbit ear antenna to VCR, Take Audio / Video Out and connect to DVR, and Audio / Video out of DVR to AV IN of TV. Start Tuning Channels using the Tuner of the VCR, and store them. Now, whenever you wish to record a particular Channel, select that channel on your VCR, and Record on your Blank DVD in the DVR.
