I need help programming vcr to tape show


Since the V9800 has no built-in tuner, your TV set must be set to the channel your show to be taped is on. There is no way to tune it to any particular channel. Now, isn't that convenient?

Unable to view/record cable channels with Panasonic DMR EZ48V


Here is what you will need. This is assuming you do not have a HD cable box.

1) A two port cable splitter available at your local hardware or electronics store. VERY IMPORTANT- this splitter needs to pass up to 1000 mghz so you do not interfere with the functions of the cable box. Also, when purchasing this don't be fooled gold does not always equal good (a common mistake made by folks).

2) 1 small coax cable.

3) 3 Additional coax cables. (1 long enough to reach from the wall to the cable box. 1 long enough to reach from cable box to the TV. 1 long enough to reach from wall to the VCR. These cables should be RG6 coax cable (about the width of a standard wooden pencil)

4) 2 RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White)

Here is how you need to connect the cables....

1) Use the small coax cable and connect it from the WALL to the INPUT of the two way SPLITTER.

2) Use one of the coax cables and connect it to the OUTPUT of the SPLITTER. Connect the other end of this cable to the INPUT of the CABLE BOX.

3) Use one of the coax cables and connect it to the OUTPUT of the CABLE BOX to the INPUT of the TV.

4) Use one of the coax cables and connect it to the OUTPUT of the SPLITTER. Connect the other end of this cable to the INPUT of the VCR.

5) Use one of the RCA cables and connect to the DVD/VHS COMMON OUT on the VCR. Connect the other end of this cable to the VIDEO IN on the back of the TV.

6) Use the other RCA cable and connect it to the VIDEO OUT on the back of the CABLE BOX. Connect the other end to the IN 1 on the back of the VCR.

Here is how to set up the VCR-
1) Tune the TV to the video input that you connected the VCR to.

2) Go to the auto program in the menus for the VCR and select "CABLE" as the source and you should now be able to get all the channels you would normally get without the cable box.

3) This will give you the option to record shows from basic cable on the VCR. While copying these channels you will still be able to tune the TV to CH 3 for the cable box and watch TV normally through the cable box.

4) If you want to copy one of the channels that is only available with the cable box you will still be limited to only being able to watch that channel while it is recording but here is how you will do it.

  • Tune the CABLE BOX to the channel you want to record.
  • Tune the TV to the VIDEO INPUT you have the VCR connected to.
  • Select either VCR or DVR on the VCR.
  • Select recording mode.
  • Press the INPUT SELECT button.
  • Select IN 1.
  • Press RECORD.
Hope this has been helpful....

Good Luck....

I cant record. trying to record from the tv to blank video tape


With the assumption that this is a DVD recorder not just a player, and all connections are correct, two things need to be in place.
1. Source: the unit needs to have a cable tuner so you can receive a channel to record or an external input (look like stereo plugs) for video in and audio in so you can use a cable box for tuning a channel
2: Format: these units will need a DVD -R or DVD +R format blank to use. Some units can use both.

If this unit is a combo (DVDR and VCR in one box) then the source should be available to both for recording and selecting the appropriate channel should work. (Note if using the cable box then the recorder channel probably should be on 3 and set your cable box to the channel you want to record
Good luck.

Cannot tune -in my panasonic vcr. it plays tapes but will not record. I have wired together the tv, sky box and vcr in what seems the obvious way (and every alternative) but no joy so far. can you help?


The main aerial goes into the vcr,a fly lead then comes out of the vcr into the tv,a scart lead from av1 on the vcr into the tv.If you want to record from sky and the vcr has two scart sockets then connect a scart lead from the sky into av2 on the vcr,when you record from sky you select av2 on the vcr as your record channel

I need playback channel for tv to be ch.4 -


Solution 1

How to set the DVD Recorder+VCR’s RF output channel
Turn off the DVD Recorder+VCR, then press and hold
CH (v/V) on the front panel for about five
seconds to change the RF output channel (CH 03 or
CH 04). “RF 03” or “RF 04” appears on the front panel display.

Solution 2

Cable Service With Cable Box
If a cable box is required in your cable system, follow the
instructions shown below. This hookup permits both TV and
DVD Recorder+VCR operation.
To view or record a CATV channel:
1 Tune the TV to the correct video input channel.
2 Set the DVD Recorder+VCR to the output channel of the
cable box using the CH (v / V) or the 0-9 keys on your DVD
Recorder+VCR (e.g., CH3).
3 Select the channel you wish to view on the cable box.

LG VCR GC480W can't tune in to tv


Any vcr I know of usually is tuned through channels 3 or 4 unless they are hooked up directly by RCA patchcord. 3 pronged- 2 audio and 1 video. With the patchcord you'll be tuning through an auxilary input in the tv.

I cannot get my DVR4300 to go in to TV channel change mode while recording a program


Why not simply record a channel tuned into the vcr and use your tv remote to watch a channel tuned into your tv? that is how it is normaly done... don't forget a vcr/pvr/dvd recorder has it's own channels just like a tv does... just no screen of it's own the tv has of course it's own channels and in fact does not even need to be switched on in order for your recorder to record a program neither does the recorder need to be on to use your tv

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

My Sansui recorder records blank when I use the timer!


first of all make sure the time and date is set correctly on your recorder (options or set-up usually) second make sure an aerial input is going to your recorder (not just to your tv (the recorder is in the loop with aerial lead to it then from it to tv)) third make sure the on-board tuners are tuned to the correct tv channels (recorder is just a tv without a screen and has its own channels that need to be tuned in)
