Re: i can't hook up the vcr
I would strongly suggest connecting a plain, coaxial cable wire from your sat box to the the ANT IN of the VCR. then use another coaxial to run from the ANT OUT of the VCR to the TV. Then you can change your TV to channel 3 or 4 as appropriate.
If you have a newer digital satellite receiver, this setup may not work. In that case, use two sets of red/white/yellow cables - 1 set will run from the out of the satellite receiver to the audio, video IN of the VCR. The second set will run from the audio and video OUT of the VCR to your TV. Then change your television to Aux 1, aux2 or whatever channel that corresponds to the red/white yellow.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

on the back of your VCR there will be a yellow colored port - most likely labeled "OUT" as well as possibly a white/red pair of ports. The yellow is for a VIDEO hookup, the white and red are for AUDIO hookups. These ports use what is called an RCA type connection. Radio Shack, or just about any department store should be able to sell you an inexpensive set of RCA cables.
now on the back of the TV (possibly on the side) you will also have the yellow, white and red ports.
Hook one end of the RCA cable to the colored ports on the VCR, the other end of the cable to the colored ports on the TV.
last thing - the TV most likely has multiple inputs. there is probably a input button on the TVs remote, you need to press that button to cycle through the inputs until you get to the one the VCR is hooked up to. its easiest to put a tape in the VCR and press play - when you get to the right input, you will see your tape...
That could be a result to that TV either not having the ports you need, or you may need different cords. On my TV. With the 360 they have two cords. Red,white, and yellow and also green blue and i think red but im not 100% sure. You may need to find a different port on your TV for your cords, or do what I do and have your VCR hooked up to your tv, and your DvD player hooked up thorugh your VCR. Hope this helps and don't forget to rate ^^
(and yes that yellow and white are a necessity)
The best way to hook up your VCR is to use the AV jacks (Red, White, and yellow). Plug into AV1 or Video 1 on the back of the TV. Then, plug into Red, White, and Yellow output jack on the back of the VCR. After everything is hooked up, turn your TV channel to AV1 or Video 1 to watch from the VCR.
To record, you'll have to plug your cable box or satellite box to the AV inputs ( Red, White, and Yellow) in the back of the VCR. ( The only thing is it wouldn't be in HD )
I have this model..was trying to hook it up to a directv hughes receiver. After a day of trying and many curse words I found that using this hookup works . Hook up your satellite connection to you tv as usual...Now plug rca cables(red, yellow white) into the corresponding holes on the BACK of the Directv receiver ..now plug the rca cables into the FRONT of the Magnavox player...you will only use find holes for the white and yellow(that's ok) Now hook up up the dvd player to the tv using the rca connection back of dvd/vcr player..or if your tv only has a coax connection you will need a rf modulator available at walmart etc. You will run the dvd/vcr on L2. The key is the connections to the FRONT of the dvd/vcr player..I hope this helps..:)
hi my name is mark, if you have cables. first unplug the power cords to the vcr and the receiver. on the back of the vcr there will an input and an output audio and video connectors. if your vcr does not have them you will need a new vcr that does. if you just want sound, find the Output connectors. there will two. they will be idenified as Audio OUT. plug one end of the red plug into the one labeled Audio R OUT, then the white in the one labeled Audio L OUT. if you are connecting the video up connect the yellow plug to the connector labeled Video OUT. the other ends connect to the receiver, on the back of the reciever find connectors labeled vcr or dvd AUDIO IN. then connect the red plug to the connector labeled R IN and the white plug to the connector labeled L IN.if you are just hooking up sound you done. to hook up video find vcr dvd Video IN and connect the yellow plug to the Video IN. on reciever. if you want the reciever to switch the TV you also need to run a yellow video cable from Video Out from receiver to Video IN on back of TV. when finished plug in vcr and receiver. select dvd or vcr on receiver to listen ot vcr on the receiver i dont know what model you have or it features i hope this helps thanks for your question.
RCA plugs (the yellow, red, and white outlets you speak of) consist of a video plug (yellow) and stereo plugs for audio (red and white). Just match the colors from the DVD RCA colors to the RCA hook-ups on the TV (ex. Yellow the Yellow, White to White).
You don't need to worry about the red one, it just makes the DVD player play stereo audio. Instead, you'll have mono, which is fine, and most modern players can detect mono and switch it for you so don't worry about changing settings and what not (unless you're missing sound on one side.)
