No this model does not do this on its own! But if your TV has outputs YELLOW/RED/WHITE you can go out from them and into the VCRs input YELLOW/RED/WHITE and record like that

Zenith XBR716 DVD Recorder / VCR Combo parental bypass


I don't know if this will work but try entering four 0 (zeros) first. If it doesn't work enter as many 0 (zeros) that you can and see if that works. Hope this helps :)

Can't copy my disney vhs tapes to dvd


I'm assuming your Disney tapes are store-bought, as opposed to recorded off the air. If that's true, the reason you can't record them to your dvd recorder is because of copy-protection. Sorry...can't advise you how to break that.

THIS RECORDER DOES NOT HAVE A TUNER BUILT-IN. YOU MUST RUN IT FROM "AV" INPUTS INSTEAD.

Unable to record from tv


I have the same problem and I called Zenith for support. I was told that the ZBR716 does NOT have a "tuner", so the only way you can record what is on TV is if, and only if, the TV has OUTPUTS (3 connectors), which could be connected to the ZBR716's inputs. But then you could only record what is currently being watched on TV. You could not record and watch something else, or set up to record something at a particular time on a particular channel, because the TV has to be on.

Unfortunately, I didn't look into this until some time after I bought the unit, so I can't return it. I was told to get a VCR/DVD recorder WITH a tuner.

I, too, had a VCR with a separate coax connection for the incoming cable tv,and it worked like your other one did.

My fault for not looking into it sooner, Circuit City's fault for selling me something when I was very specific about what I wanted and what I wanted to do with it.

you can call zenith yourself, go to www.zenith.com and hit the support page and eventually you'll find the phone number.

good luck.

How do I connect my dvd recorder xbr716 to the television?


Tiene tu televisor entradas de audio y video,si las tiene no hay mucha dificultad para conectarlo,el aparato trae unos cables rca con diferente color rojo blanco y amarillo, el rojo y el blanco los vas a poner en las salidas (outputs) de audio del dvd las que son del mismo color,el conector amarillo lo vas a poner donde dice video output, y en la tv los conectas donde dice inputs en el mismo color del conector.Pones tu tv para entrada de video y ya esta.

ALL cable is digital.
What type of TV do you have? Does it have any scart conections on it? If not connect the Cable box with a scart lead to your VCR select the AV channel on your VCR, connect your VCR to your TV via the RF connection, (if it has not got one, its not a TV, its a monitor). Tune your TV in to the video channel.
You do not need an RF modulator for a home TV setup, whoever told you that is a fool.

RECORDING


On most VCR/DVD Recorder combos there is a quick dub button that you must select the source. Ifyou are recording from a VHS than you need to make sure the button is pressed so that VCR is displayed or lighted or whatever the unit does. If its on ??? Then perhaps its telling you that it is set to record of the DVD which it obviously can't.
