SOURCE: Unable to view/record cable channels with Panasonic DMR EZ48V

Here is what you will need. This is assuming you do not have a HD cable box.

1) A two port cable splitter available at your local hardware or electronics store. VERY IMPORTANT- this splitter needs to pass up to 1000 mghz so you do not interfere with the functions of the cable box. Also, when purchasing this don't be fooled gold does not always equal good (a common mistake made by folks).

2) 1 small coax cable.

3) 3 Additional coax cables. (1 long enough to reach from the wall to the cable box. 1 long enough to reach from cable box to the TV. 1 long enough to reach from wall to the VCR. These cables should be RG6 coax cable (about the width of a standard wooden pencil)

4) 2 RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White)

Here is how you need to connect the cables....

1) Use the small coax cable and connect it from the WALL to the INPUT of the two way SPLITTER.

2) Use one of the coax cables and connect it to the OUTPUT of the SPLITTER. Connect the other end of this cable to the INPUT of the CABLE BOX.

3) Use one of the coax cables and connect it to the OUTPUT of the CABLE BOX to the INPUT of the TV.

4) Use one of the coax cables and connect it to the OUTPUT of the SPLITTER. Connect the other end of this cable to the INPUT of the VCR.

5) Use one of the RCA cables and connect to the DVD/VHS COMMON OUT on the VCR. Connect the other end of this cable to the VIDEO IN on the back of the TV.

6) Use the other RCA cable and connect it to the VIDEO OUT on the back of the CABLE BOX. Connect the other end to the IN 1 on the back of the VCR.

Here is how to set up the VCR-
1) Tune the TV to the video input that you connected the VCR to.

2) Go to the auto program in the menus for the VCR and select "CABLE" as the source and you should now be able to get all the channels you would normally get without the cable box.

3) This will give you the option to record shows from basic cable on the VCR. While copying these channels you will still be able to tune the TV to CH 3 for the cable box and watch TV normally through the cable box.

4) If you want to copy one of the channels that is only available with the cable box you will still be limited to only being able to watch that channel while it is recording but here is how you will do it.

  • Tune the CABLE BOX to the channel you want to record.
  • Tune the TV to the VIDEO INPUT you have the VCR connected to.
  • Select either VCR or DVR on the VCR.
  • Select recording mode.
  • Press the INPUT SELECT button.
  • Select IN 1.
  • Press RECORD.
Hope this has been helpful....

Good Luck....

I have just the cable hooked up to the tv but it says no signal. A funny thing tho, channel 81-1 shows a box with all the pay for view programs.


Your CRT television, if it was manufactured before 2005, likely cannot receive off-air channels, and many cable companies do not provide analog channels any longer. Your cable company may offer a converter box to accommodate your old television.

I am unable to record digital tv channels on my LG RC389H dvd recorder. I have a new tv with a digital tuner and have hooked them up but unable to view any digital tv on my LG player only the old analogue...


The RC389H is only deigned to receive standard TV signals, not digital. If you are routing through a straight cable line you usually can't access anything above 100 if you don't have a digital tuner. Try using a cable/satellite box if you haven't already, this bypasses the requirement for a digital tuner because the cable/satellite box has one of it's own.

Hitatchi 42HDF52 only receives channel 5 and 6 on analog RF input


If you have tried autoprogramming and have found nothing it may be a bad tuner. Is your VCR is hooked up via coax or into a video input? If it is hooked up via video and is working but the coax connection direct isnt it will be a bad TV tuner. Easiest cheapest fix is to use you VCR to change channels or get a Digital Cable Terminal from you cable provider and hook it into video or compnent.

if your tv has no AV IN AND OUT connections, purchase a converter from eletronic shops just around your area.
this will make you convert AV into RF signal and feed that to your tv. you have to go on a channel and search for right frequency the will search for you.

You need to buy a cable output to television antenna input adaptor. One end will allow you to connect the cable box output to a cable input. The other end will hook up to you television just like a antenna, on the two screw hook -up. The usually can be purchased at any electronics store, like Fry's, Best buy,Radio Shack. Or you can buy them online. Use google to search cable output to television input adaptor's. Hope this helps you with your problem.

If there is no coaxial cable input on VCR, then it should work by RCA cables. Which is the Yellow , red/white cables. On the back of the VCR. Take a set of RCA cables Yellow for video, red/white for audio to the VCR output.Then do the same to the Television input. Next use the television remote to turn the TV to Video input this will allow you to view what's playing on VCR. Then take another set of RCA cables and reverse the first setup. Attached Cables to VCR input and cables to TV Output. This will allow you record what's on television. Now make sure the cable is screwed to coaxial cable input on television. This will able you to access cable programming on television, view vhs tapes, and record programming directly from television.Good Luck
