Connection cord problem from VR375 to TV set?

I am trying to connect the DVD-vr375 to my son's TV. I have one red/yellow/white cord from DVD (video out) to TV set (video in). What other connection do I need? Do I need to buy another cord connection? TV does not have HMDI.

    thanks for your response. I now have the yellow/red/white connected into the Video OUT on the DVD recorder and the other end into the Video IN on the back of the TV.



    I'm thinking that I need to do the same from the Video IN on the DVD recorder and the other end into the Video OUT of the TV in order to record FROM TV to DVD disk......??



    There is a white "co-axle" running from the TV to the cable box and CAT 5 from the cable box to the wall. (TV/Cable works fine).



    I'll try again N. yrs. day. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    What kind of tv input are your using? Antenna? Digital Cable? Is there cable or satellite box? What does he plan on using it for? If he wants to record from the TV it will either need some sort of video input from the TV/CABLE/SAT box.

Page 18 of the user manual for your device shows that there are normal video (yellow) and audio (red/white) connectors underneath the A/V out column of connectors - Since your son's TV does not have an HDMI cable (all you would need if that were the case) make sure you connect the A/V out column to the RCA type inputs of your son's TV.

The manual can be found here:

I am trying to hook the dvd player up to my old tv and am only getting sound, I am using the red, white and yellow cord.


I hope this will clarify things, you have 3 connections on each end.
DVD
  • Yellow Cable goes on Video Out (Yellow)
  • White Cable goes on Left Audio Out (White)
  • Red Cable goes on Right Audio Out (Red)

TV
  • Yellow Cable goes on Video IN (Yellow)
  • White Cable goes on Left Audio IN (White)
  • Red Cable goes on Right Audio IN (Red)

the coaxial audio connection does NOT need to be connected.
I hope this helps,

I am trying to record with VHS from TV and not using a cable box. No results. How do I do this?


This unit doesn't have a tuner. So unless your TV can provide video out (not a common feature) to the dvd/vcr recorder, you need a tuner. A set-top tuner box for OTA would work. With a little work, you could also use a tuner (USB or PCI slot card) in a computer. Usually you need a converter box unless your video card can output in a non-RGB format. The manual for this device is available here: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads/DVD-VR375 .

I wish that I could be of more help.

I have a samsung dvd recorder, whats the proper way to connect for it to work, do i connect to cable box, tv


How you connect it depends on your system. You need to connect the video out of the recorder to the TV. If you want to record programs, you need to connect the cable box to the recorder's video in. (The unit doesn't have a tuner if you have the unit listed above.)

Place the IR Blaster near the set-top box IR receiver. Connect the RF cable from the wall to your set-top box and then another RF cable from the set-top box to the TV (not to the DVD recorder). Connect a composite A/V cable from the set-top box A/V (composite) out to the DVD recorder's A/V in (AV1) port. (Composite video is a three wire cable - the plugs are yellow (video) and red/white (R/L audio).)

Next you need to connect the unit to the TV. Depending on the TV, you can use an HDMI cable (best results), component video or another composite video cable (labeled AV2 AV out). If you use component video, you'll need a separate cable to carry the audio. (Component video cables have 3 RCA jacks on each end (red, blue and green). The audio cable has the red and white plugs.

You will only get a 480 (SD) signal output if you use anything other than the HDMI cable. (The progressive scan feature is not compatible with all TVs; see the manual for details.)


You can obtain the manual from http://www.samsung.com/us/support/detail/supportPrdDetail.do?menu=SP01&prd_mdl_name=DVD-VR375 .

I hope this helps.

How do I connect to Sharp HDTV and Comcast cable


Your dvd recorder only has rca, red white yellow inputs it wont allow you to record in HD, although you can play your comcast box any hd, regular digital through and record. Hook up the comcast box if HD through preferably HDMI if not get one from comcast. The HD box is the only box that allow HDMI, component and regular RCA and some RF out. This way you can play HD to your set but also record through RCA or RF again will not allow for HD record unless its TiVo. Hope this helps

I just got my DVD-VR375. I want to watch a rented movie. The TV is about 5 years old and cable is connected directly to the TV. I connected the red white and yellow from the dvd av out to the video in on...


If you have the original remote for the TV there should be a button that says Input or I Select or something similar. You need to change your "Input" to L1 or L2 or AV, or something similar.

How to connect motorola cable box to samsung dvd/vcr model vr375 to a Westinghouse hdtv with 2 hdmi connections


The DVD-VR375 does not have an HDMI input. The connection should be:
• RED WHITE & YELLOW CABLE from your cable box (AV OUT) should connect to the DVD-VR375 (AV IN 1). Set the DVD-VR375 to AV 1 using the INPUT SEL. button.
• Next, connect an HDMI cable from the DVD-VR375 (HDMI OUT) to the TV (HDMI IN). Set the TV to the proper source.
This connection would allow the recorder to work as a pass through and will let you record TV programs as well as watch your cable channels.

Hope this helps!

Need help setting up DVD-VR375 with compatible SAMSUNG TV


if it has component (red, blue, green) cables, plug one set into dvd player's "in's" and tv sets "out's'. you may have to play with the tv channels to be able to watch movie. you just change channels, go from "3" backward until you find a picture and sound.
