SOURCE: poor viewing with VCR

how do you have the combo connection and dish network hooked to the tv ? if you have an s-video , yellow RCA jack video or component video hooked to the same input then it will act this way, because two inputs cannot be on the same video input # on the tv.
is this what is happening? or how are you connecting it?

Hi, Check the settings in the TV menu. Set the sharpness abit higher. Also if you have already you need a set top box (PVR) to view digital signal and to record it as well. Good luck.

Records & dubs but very poor resolution


Hi,

You've got a Dish Network's HD DVR and a Toshiba 720P HDTV - so this part of the mix will maintain the HD pictures and high quality digital audio that you're used to seeing.

The trouble begins when you introduced the Magnavox VCR / DVD device. The highest quality video content that this device can record is the 480 type, regardless of the input or source quality - which in your case would be 720P via HDMI cables. 480 is considered "SD" or "standard definition". This is the weakest link in your setup and is responsible for your unsatisfactory results.

The Magnavox will "upconvert" to 1080 lines of resolution. The key here is the term "upconvert" True HD recordings are taken of a scene and capturing either 720 or 1080 lines of resolution in the image or video (such as a camera taking a photo or video); or recording the playback of a previously recorded 720 or 1080 lines of resolution source. Recording a 480 lines of resolution source with a an 720 or 1080 lines of resolution device will not make the image HD. The recording can not possibly be better than the original. In fact, due to losses, each generation of copy becomes worse and worse. Upconverting simply "fills in" the missing parts between the 480 source and 720 or 1080 output with what it "thinks" is missing data. The results are what you see on the screen. The original capture did not save more info that 480 lines of resolution so it is really impossible to improve it.

The recording can not ever exceed the quality of the original (the Dish Network DVR at 720 or more) and will only be as good as the weakest link (the Magnavox DVD / VCR at 480). Additionally, the moment you change from digital to analog, you lose quality instantly. Digital signals - both video and audio will always be faithfully reproduced do to error correcting technology, etc. that simply isn't available in the analog world.

You need to use a digital recorder capable of capturing and playing back of 720 or 1080 lines of resolution video and AC3 audio for optimum video and audio on a Blu Ray recorder or other device with hard drives or memory such as MP3 recorder. Otherwise you'll have to accept reduced quality of standard L & R analog audio and 480 lines of resolution of SD video. You can not expect HD audio and video if you try to save to equipment designed for SD / analog.

You have probably found out now that you would need to get your digital reception by connecting a set top box to the LG, say to AV1, then select AV1 when making a recording.

Will these remotes work for the vcr that is connected to the tv?


Many of the modern remotes have no codes for VCR only CD/DVD. The VCR generation is supposed to be dead as no big players are making them anymore. One can purchase Digital Video recorders which will record on Hard Disc or directly on CD/DVD's with out any loss of picture quality.And some of the recorders can record more than 500 hours of High Quality videos !!!

Can the LG 990W VHS VCR receive digital TV signal


VCR is analogue, However you can still use it to record digital programmes when connected via a digital set top box. You can only record the channel you have selected on the screen. In other words, you cannot record a channel programme while watching another channel. I use mine on a second TV and when recorded I take the tape out and put it into my main TV for viewing at a later date. I don't watch too much TV so it works fine for me for the odd programme.

Everytime I record a programme and try to play it, the picture jumps throught. I cannot find a tracking button, is there one?


No, it's auto tracking on that model. Check the condition of the tape you are recording on.
If its old it will record in poor quality, also try running a tape head cleaner, a wet one is best.
If that solves the problem for a while, say 3 or 4 plays, then it returns then the tapes are old and probably not usable.
I hope this helps.

Recording from LG 42pc1dv plasma tv to LG v782w VCR


If it does this on all channels then the video on your AV out from the TV is bad.

If it only happens with some channels then this is Macrovision protection working which will not allow you to record premium channels and any that are using this protection.

VCR tape playback not good


Check your "tracking" If the tape played fine in the old machine, then tracking is the answer, provided that the new machine records good.

VHS Tape on Sanyo Doesn't play on other VCR's


the heads on the sanyo vcr may slightly be out of alignment from years of use.when playing a recorded tape from this vcr to another, the other vcr's alignment maybe right on track thus causing the poor quality.you can possibly try cleaning the heads with a head cleaner or a high grade blank tape,but i don't think this will solve the problem. but you can try.
good luck
wg
p.s also try higher quality tapes to record on.
