Re: Need a VCR???

You should just be able to replace the vcr with the DVR and connect it in exactly the same way, unless the vcr is very old and doesn't have the same connections. If you want exact info, please post back with the make and model numbers of your TV and cable box and we should be able to talk you through it. Hope this helps, if not please post back with the details :)

Trying to dub from dvr to vhs vcr

Is L2 for composite video (yellow) or S-Video? Try watching a video on L2 with the composite video plugged into the back of your TV, if it works, then do the same with the DVR, if that works, then run the DVR composite video into a receiver, then the L2 from the VCR to the video out on your receiver. It's possible that the VCR won't record anything that isn't an applified signal. That's what the receiver does.

Just hook your antenna or whatever wire you have currently connected to the TV to the input on the new recorder, and you'll be to record anything you can watch now.

A lot of the functionality you are wanting is tied to the remote that you have misplaced. You can go to the Pioneer support site and order a new remote, though it is like $30.

As for wiring options to record, it depends on the inputs and outputs that are available on your television.
- Ideally, connect VCR to TV input "1", connect DVR output to TV input "2", and conect TV output to DVR. This will help you avoid any copy protection issues you run into, but not all TV sets have both audio and video output.
- If you don't have TV outputs, connect VCR out to DVR in, and then DVR out to TV in. This will definitely work, but you will have to have the DVR turned on to watch a VCR tape.
