Question about Rio Go Video DDV9475 Dual Deck VCR

1 Answer

I have very old VCR tapes which has distorted display.

I need to convert my old VCR tapes to DVD. I want to have their quality restored. We have a video player with filter but it is not enough to restore the distorted images of my tapes. So I am looking for the right equipment to restore my tapes and wondered if you know the VCR for the job. Thank you.

The best way to go would be to get a VCR with a USB and connect it to a PC. You can get programs such as Magix from Amazon that will restore the pctures and then put them on a DVD or even Blue-Ray drive.

My vcr plays commercially-recorded tapes fine, but tapes recorded on it or another VCR play with the sound distorted. The picture seems fine.


Sounds like its mechanism need some alignment. Guide pole alignment. Contact any service technician. This is technically skilled work. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Can not get to hook up ot tv


Your new TV is digital. Your VCR is for the obsolete analog NTSC broadcast standard. The two devices are totally incompatible. There are converter boxes available. The quality of the playback will be very poor compared to the picture you now see on your high definition digital TV. The NTSC picture is made up of 525 lines. The best home VCR reduced the resolution to about 350 lines. Your new TV is very high resolution by comparison with a much larger screen in all likelihood. The large screen will exaggerate the poor quality. The process of sending the signal through a converter box will reduce the resolution even more, although digital enhancement with a computer or a dedicated device can marginally improve the results. In the end, you will probably be very unhappy with the resulting picture. If you have video tapes you need to convert them to a digital format using DVD or BlueRay disks, for example. Once converted, you will need a a BlueRay or DVD player for playback to your TV. There are devices for making the conversion or you can send you tapes to a company that will covert the tapes for you. If you do a google search, for video to DVD conversion services, there are many choices. I would suggest that you just have your tapes converted to archival quality DVDs. The sooner you do it, the better because tape degrades in a relatively short time. The tape has a sync track along one edge and as the tape stretches (they always do) by just sitting on the shelf or being played, the player will no longer be able to play the tape and your memories will be lost forever.

I have a number of VHS-C tapes from my various video cameras in the early-to-mid 1990s that I'm transferring to DVD via my DVD/VCR combo device. But several of of these tapes that have the suffix...


VHS-C and S VHS-C are two different animals. Super VHS-C will have much better video resolution than standard VHS and uses better videotape. A standard VCR will not play the Super format. You need a S VHS VCR. You would need not only a S VHS VCR but also a S VHS-C adapter. Yes, Not even the adapter is the same as a standard VHS-C adapter cassette.

You can send out your few S VHS-C tapes to a video conversion service. That might be the least expensive way to get them on DVD. Otherwise you could look on E-Bay.com for either a compatible camcorder (S VHS-C) or the S VHS VCR and the S VHS-C adapter.

http://vhs-to-dvd.com is one video conversion service that should be able to get your tapes on DVD for you. You could also look locally for a video service that does conversions to DVD.

How do I hook up my old VCR to an insignia tv?


You will need a converter to record onto a VCR. I can't remember the when the FCC require VCR to have digital, but I know yours old enough it has an analog tuner. Take your antenna connection to the in on the converter box, then you can take the out from the converter box to the in on the vcr and finally take the out to tv to the tv. To record you have to have the vcr on 3 or 4 and use the converter box to do the channel changing.

Another way would be take the in to the converter and use RCA cables to the line in on the vcr, and line out to the to the tv. This will give you stereo sound.

Have digital TV have 3 yr old sony VHS VCR DVD player combo


A DTV converter box will take digital broadcast signals from the antenna and convert them to a format compatible with the VCR. You will be able to record programs received through the DTV box on your VCR if you could record analog over-the-air programs before the digital changeover. You can use either the RF output or the component output from the DTV box to input to the VCR.

If the tapes are old or cheap, they may simply be no good. However, I found that the automatic tracking is the best thing to ensure perfect quality picture and sound.

Tv/digital converter box & vcr-dvd hook-up


I have a vhs and dvd player all in one
I have a converter box hooked up to my tv and vcr , dvd player combined
I can play my movies on the tv. ok.
you have to have your tv and vcr set on channel 3. if that is what your main tv is set up with. Or 4 if you have your tv set up with that.
Mine plays ok. My settings are for channel 3
My suggestion would be to check your hook ups. maybe they are not hooked up correctly
I had to go to www.google.com and did searches to help with hook up.
I can also record station I am watching with vcr on vsh tapes. I do not have a dvd recorder.
I found out that you have to have 2 converter boxes hooked to one tv., in order to record on on station while watching another. I have not tried that, as I don't have 2 converter boxes for one tv. I found that by doing google search also. Good Luck
