Connecting TV to DVD / VCR Recorder

I recently purchased a new TV (LG) to connect with the DVD / VCR Recorder that I already own. I am trying to figure out if I can record something on a DVD or VCR and watch the TV at the same time. Any ideas????

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

I am assuming that what you intend to do is:

  • record a TV channel/program/show either on VCR or DVD;
  • while at the same time watching another TV channel/program/show directly on the TV.
Yes, but only if you are not using/needing a cable decoder box. To do this, the coaxial cable from your provider would have to be made to supply both the RF/ANT/CABLE IN of the VCR/DVD and the TV. To accomplish this, you would need a 2-way splitter. One input to the splitter, 2 outputs, one each for the DVD/VCR and the TV. The DVD/VCR would have to be connected to the TV using yellow, white & red RCA cables. To watch DVD, VCR and/or what is being recorded on the DVD/VCR, set the TV to Video mode. To watch regular TV, select the channels on the TV.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

I PURCHASED A MAGNAVOX Z V 427MG9 A VHS DVD RECORDER.I HAVE A NEW VIZIO VW26L HDTV. HOW DO I CONNECT THEM? I HAVE ALREADY CONNECTED A HDMI CABLE TO IT BUT DON'T KNOW TO SET IT UP. DO I NEED ANY OTHER...


HDMI cables are actually wonderfully simple to connect. Once you have connected one end to the TV and one end to the DVD player, you will simply need to change your input channel using your TV's remote. Find a Input or Video source button and press it until the screen says HDMI. Now your TV may have several HDMI ports so you may have to try a couple HDMI channels before you find the right one.

Hope that helps!

We just purchased a Samsung TV, and have been using a RCA DVD/VCR player/recorder, Model#: DRC8295N, Serial#: XXXXXXXXX We have Direct TV and before the new tv was using one of their DVR player/recorders....


The problem with your DVD/VCR is that when you hooked up your new TV you probably removed the power cord for the DVD/VCR during installing and running your new wires and such.

Your DVD/VCR has known problems in the power supply. This is very common. When unplugged, this allowed the capacitors to discharge and now wont work at all. It is very possible that if you left your DVD/VCR plugged into the AC wall socket it might begin to work after a couple of days. I wouldn't plan on it though.

Your DVD/VCR will need power supply repairs.The cost should be around $100 dollars.
if you would like one of our stores to repair this for you we would be happy.

You can send us the unit and we can repair this for you and return in about a week.

Dstv to dvd recorder connection


  1. Grab your A/V composite wires and insert them into the Audio/Video OUTPUTS on the back of the satellite receiver. These are color-coded connections--red to red, white to white and yellow to yellow. The red and white connections are your audio feeds and the yellow is for your video.
  2. Look on the backside of your DVD/VCR dual recorder. You will see similar connections. Connect the other end of the composite wires to the Audio/Video INPUTS on the DVD/VCR dual recorder.
  3. With a second set of A/V composite wires, connect one end to the DVD/VCR dual recorder's A/V OUTPUT and the other end to the television's A/V INPUT. Again, be sure to follow the color code. Also, if your television has more than one available input, be sure to know to which one you made the connections (A/V 1, A/V 2, etc.).

Recording to DVD recorder


I know you can copy to the VCR. but do not know if digital recording has any form of copyright protection. You can try to copy by connecting the outputs of the DVD TV to the inputs of the DVD player recorder.

Connecting to a Satellite reciver


I solved the problem with my DVD recorder. I attached a cable from the loop out on the back of the FTA receiver to the RF in on the back of the recorder. All I was missing was the signal from the satellite. Everything is working fine now.

Thanks
