Question about Televison & Video

6 Answers

I have a sattellite system with DVR. I just bought a DVD/VCR combo unit. The DVD is a recorder and player, while the VCR is just a player. What I need to know is can I record something from my DVR to the DVD. In other words, if I am playing a show that I recorded on my DVR, can I press the record button on my DVD recorder, and the program record to the DVD? If the answer to this question is yes, then how can I connect the DVR to the DVD recorder such that this can be done?

    The solution asked for a model number on my DVD(Recorder)/VCR combo unit. It is a Toshiba D-VR610-A-TU - Please advise if there is any additional information I need based on this information. Thanks.

    I just received another request for clarification on whether or not I was HD or not. Yes - I have a Panasonic Plasma 50-inch TV, and the new DVD/VCR combo unit has the broadband cable with it, not coaxial cable. Please advise further based upon this updated information. Thanks!

HI
The DVR timer is synchronized with the program guide time. If a broadcaster starts the program a minute earlier than the guide’s scheduled time, theDVR will miss that first minute. You can program your DVR to start early or end late by adjusting yourRecording Options.

    I THINK  Your DVR has two tuners so that you can, 1) record two channels at the same time, 2) record one and watch another or 3) record two channels and watch a 3rd program from your DVR recordings library.

This are 2 possible solutions, here is your setup:

1:Take the output from satellite DVR to the TV and instead run it to the "line in" to your DVD recorder. Then run a new cable to the TV. This could happen via several cables but based on your lack of mention for HD in the equation a simple coaxial (cable) connection would work or RCA cables (yellow, red, white) Then you'd take your output from the VCR and run it to the TV. The only things you'll need to take not of now is what channels/inpuit you have everything set to (ie. channel 3 on the TV to recieve the output from the VCR if not already doing so from the dish). The upsides to this is that you don't have to buy anything if you've already got extra cables laying around, the downsides are that it may take some configuring to get the right channels set up and to make sure you remember you DVD has to be on whenever you want to watch TV

2: Get a simple "coax splitter" from your local electronic supply and split your out signal to the TV from the DVR box and run the new port to the DVD recorder via coax. The upsides to this fix are that it is very easy and keeps your DVD/VCR on a separate input on your TV, the downside is that your don't necessarily have the benefit of a realtime monitor of what you're recording and your signal would be slighlty degraded through a splitter.

    The setup for this shouldn't change with HD. solution 2 would become a much more complicated possibility. But for solution 1 that I mentioned just substitute your HDMI cables for the coax.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, would be more specific if you could post the brand and model number.

Offhand, yes:

  • DVR RF OUT (if available) to ANT/CABLE/RF IN of DVD/VCR;
  • DVD/VCR set to Channel 3; or
  • DVR Audio/Video OUT to Audio/Video IN of DVD/VCR (if available);
  • DVD/VCR set to Channel A/V or Video 1; or
  • DVR Audio/Video OUT to an RF Modulator. RF Modulator to ANT/CABLE/RF IN of DVD/VCR;
  • DVD/VCR set to Channel 3.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

The DVD/VCR combo will need to be in DVD mode to be able to record the programs from the DVR.
The way to connect is: the video/audio output from your DVR to the video/audio input on the DVD/VCR combo and select the correct input on the DVD/VCR combo to be able to record.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

    How To Transfer Video from a Digital Video Recorder to a DVD Recorder


    1. Record a TV show on your DVR that you want to save to DVD!

    2. Turn
      on the DVR, DVD Recorder and the TV that the DVD Recorder is connected
      to. In my case, I have my Samsung DVD Recorder (no hard drive) hooked
      up to my TV via an RCA Audio/Video cable from the rear outputs on the
      DVD Recorder to the rear RCA inputs on my TV. I use a seperate DVD
      Player for playing DVDs, but if you use your DVD Recorder as a player
      as well, use the best cable connections you can to connect to the TV.
      See the article Types of A/V Cables for more info.

    3. Connect
      an S-Video or RCA video cable and composite stereo cables (red and
      white RCA plugs) from the DVR to the inputs on your DVD Recorder. If
      your TV has Component inputs, connect the Component Out from the DVD
      Recorder to the Component In on the TV, otherwise you can use S-Video
      or Composite. You will still need to use RCA audio with your video
      connection.

    4. Change the input on your DVD Recorder to match the
      inputs you are using. Since I'm using the rear S-Video input, I change
      my input to "L1", which is the input for recording using the rear
      S-Video input. If I was recording using the front analog cables it
      would be "L2", the front Firewire input, "DV". The input select can
      typically be changed using the DVD Recorder remote.

    5. You'll also
      need to change the input select on the TV to match the inputs you are
      using to connect the DVD Recorder. In my case, I'm using rear inputs
      that correspond to "Video 2". This allows me to view what I'm recording.

    6. You
      can now perform a test to make sure the video signal is coming through
      to the DVD Recorder and the TV. Simply start playing the recorded TV
      show back from the Digital Video Recorder and see if the video and
      audio is being played back on the TV. If you have everything connected
      properly, and the correct input select, you should be seeing and
      hearing your video. If not, check your cable connections, power, and
      input select.

    7. Now you're ready to record! First, determine the
      type of disc you'll need, either DVD+R/RW or DVD-R/RW. For more info on
      Recordable DVDs read the article Types of Recordable DVD Formats. Second, change the record speed to the desired setting. For me it's "SP", which allows up to two hours of record time.

    8. Place the recordable DVD into the DVD Recorder.

    9. Start
      playing the Recorded TV Show back while pressing record on either the
      DVD Recorder itself, or by using the remote. If you want to record more
      than one show on a DVD, just pause the recorder while you switch to the
      other show, and then resume by hitting pause on the recorder or remote
      a second time after you start playing the next tape. However, make sure
      you have enough space on the disc for the shows you are recording.

    10. Once
      you have recorded your TV show (or shows) hit stop on the recorder or
      the remote. DVD Recorders require that you "finalize" the DVD in order
      to make it a DVD-Video, capable of playback in other devices. The
      method for finalizing varies by DVD Recorder, so consult the owner's
      manual for information on this step.

    11. Once your DVD is finalized, it is now ready for playback.

    12. While
      you can purchase a DVR that includes a built-in DVD Recorder, those can
      be expensive. By hooking up a seperate DVD Recorder, you can save some
      money, while taking advantage of backing up you TV shows to DVD,
      without the need for a DVR with a built-in DVD Recorder.

    13. On the
      other hand, having the convenience of a built-in DVD Recorder is the
      right choice for those who don't want to hook up an extra A/V device to
      their home theater set-up.

How do i/can i record tv to a DVD ]


If your using RCA cables (thats the red, white & yellow leads) you need run yellow RCA from the 'VIDEO (or) TV OUTPUT' at the back of your tv, to the 'VIDEO (or) TV INPUT' in the back of your DVD/VCR combo unit, & do the same with the red & white 'AUDIO' leads only run them from AUDIO OUTPUT(tv) to AUDIO INPUT(dvdrecorder). Now set the mode of the dvd recorder to TV IN or AUX IN. Now it should record whatever you see on the tv screen. But if your tv has an S VIDEO OUTPUT option, using an S VIDEO cable would be much easier & produces a better copy! Hope this helps!

Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.
