Dvd recorder does not have tv tuner

New dvd recorder does not have tv tuner...so I cannot record from tv.
Samsung told me to by an rf mogulator or use another cord. My tv has places for AV 1 and AV2 and monitor out and such.
Do I have to rent a cable box to record from the tv? The book says to connect to set top or cable box. I do not need a cable box ..my cable goes into tv.
Should I just return the dvd recorder.

Sure you can record from your TV. You need to connect the AV1 of the tv to the AV1 of the DVD recorder. Then, when the TV is running, you can simultaneously record on your DVD recorder.

Use a SCART cable for the connection.

Digital convertor


Do you mean the Samsung DVD-VR500E? The following steps should work for most DVD recorders. (In the US, you use the AV Input with an RCA composite cable or the RF input.)

If you get a digital-to-analog converter (set top box) and your current antenna provides the OTA signal at your location, then yes you will be able to record a digital program. Connect the set top box to AV1 or AV2 (the SCART inputs). Then use the Input Sel (under PR mode) to select the input. (Alternatively, connect an RF modulator to get the signal to the coax input from the STB to the recorder.) See page 75 of the manual for the DVD-500E for details on setting the input for recording: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200410/20041023105238671_00500A-VR300E-XEU-E-B.pdf . Some DVD recorders only record on the TV (coax) input. In that case, you will need a set-top box with a RF out or an RF modulator but you can still record the digital program.

A dual tuner set top box will let you watch one program and record another if both the TV and the recorder are connected to the STB. If your TV has a digital tuner, you can split the incoming antenna signal to go to the set-top box and the TV. (Then you can also watch one program and record another.)

I prefer to use a switch instead of a splitter to reduce the signal loss. However, this forces me to record the program that I am currently watching. Since most of my recording is for time-shifting, this doesn't cause me a problem.

This site, http://www.ricability-digitaltv.org.uk/pages/products/stbs/stb_search_results.asp , has a list of reviews of set-top boxes for the UK. I know in the US, it is harder to find new converter boxes. However, they frequently show up in the used market as people replace their older TVs. This may apply in your region as well.

I hope this helps.

Scheduled a timer recording of a program on a DVD+R and when I went to play it back all I got on the screen was noise and snow. I now realize that I used the wrong disc (should have used only DVD-R). ...


Hi,During timer recording adjustment you must have selected what ever you want to record..i.e: Tuner Channel , or ,Video1 input ,or Video 2 input etc..This problem is related with Source selection but not with - + type Disc..wrong disc will refuse to record at the beginning..

The noise and snow shows that your recorder was Recorded an unadjusted RF channel..thus no TV signal was available during recording ..
I assume that your DVD recorder has built in TV tuner in...To correct the problem,first you make an automatic Ch set up ,search the available channels either on the Cable (if you have ) or RF local channels thru Arial Antenna..
than you try to record again by carefully selecting ..you will record TV RF channels successfully. Or you can attach another video source to your Recorder thru the RCA cables on the back panel and by selecting the respective SOURCE in accordance withe cabling you have made than you will record the AV signals available on your Receiver..
If you need more help pls let me know for further advise.

I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9 DVD Recorder VCR Combo. Do I need a separate tuner? If so what kind? Thanks


Hello
Ofcourse you need an external tuner to receive any RF signals. Your Magnavox is not equipped with internal tuner with it. OK.

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.

(you have an additional A/V IN connection as well as a DV In port on the front of the unit)

I GET TO THE WINDOW TO PROGRAM A RECORDING BUT FOR CHANNEL SELECTION I ONLY GET L- L-2 OR L3 I NEED TO BE ABLE TO SELECT THE CHANNEL LIKE 6 THIS IS A NEW HD TV. I AM ABLE TO PLAY EXISTING SHOW ON THE DVD...


Hi.

You will need to connect an antenna and program channels to internal tuner if you want to use the built in tuner.

It is not clear if your problem is with the HDTV or with the DVD recorder.

Both have an internal tuner, and both can tune channels , L2 and L3 are the input lines used when you connect for example to an external receiver.

Regards.

Need an RCA Adapter for a TOSHIBA D-VR610KU


If the RF Modulator will convert a coaxial signal to an RCA output signal, fine however, you still need a tuner to select the channel on the TV you want to record. This unit is primarily for dubbing or copying DVD to VCR or VCR to DVD. There is no tuner in the unit to get the cable signal. Try hooking up an additional VCR, that probably has a tuner in it and use the RCA out of the 2nd unit to the RCA in of the Toshiba. Hook the coax to the input coax jack of the 2nd then RCA out to RCA in of the Toshiba. Choose what channell you want to record on the 2nd unit. You may have to choose Auxillary mode on the toshiba the press instant record on the Toshiba. Again, this unit is a Player or Dubber. Not designed to record TV shows without an external tuner. I hope this helps. If you use a 2nd VCR just to get the TV Signal, you won't need the modulator.

First off, scart has an auto detect feature across pin 8, HDMI does not. If you have turn your TV to the HDMI channel, and at some point turn off the HD source device you are going to get a blank screen, you have to manually turn your TV back.
In regard to whilst you are recording it sounds like you may have tuned in channels on your DVD but not your TV.
Do you have an RF aerial lead connected from the DVD output to the RF on you telly?
Do you have a sky/cable box connected to your TV via scart?
Does the DVD have DVB (digital video broadcast) if so and you have none of the above that is the problem, any tuner running off a single RF lead can only record/play 1 channel at a time. If you have no RF lead going to the TV, then the TV cannot show any terrestrial channels.

Can't record from tv or disc,


shouldn't need one, If you can't get the tuner source of your ilo to record, try using A/V cables (output) from tv to (Inputs) on ilo. set tv on channel you want to watch and it should come through to the ilo (selecting the correct source input of course) If your tv is really old and doesn't have A/V then you will need RF Modulator. This way of hooking tv up will also work with recording DIGITAL signal from a Digital converter box type tuner (the tuner in Ilo soon to be no longer operatable).
