I have a Magnavox 2205 Combination DVD/DVR and I would like to change the the output channel from 3 to 4. I lost power at my house and the unit defaulted back to output channel 3. This unit, though inexpensive, has been working daily for my kids for years now, and I would like to keep it. I have misplaced my user's guide and there is no slide switch on the back as there used to be. It is older now, and I can't seem to find the user's guide online.
1: set tv to channel you want your vcr output to be on. 2: turn vcr on (if it is a vcr/dvd combo make sure it is on vcr) 3: put in video tape. 4: press play button one time, release it, and then press and hold it for three to five seconds. i had to call customer support to figure this out on mine.

That might be the TV output channel. I found these instructions in a Sanyo manual:
How to set the DVD+VCR's RF output channel
Set the TV to the VCR channel (3 or 4) depending upon the selected channel.
When the DVD+VCR is turned off, press and hold CHANNEL (V/v) on the front panel for more than five seconds. It will turn itself on and "RF03" or "RF04" appears in the dis-play window.
Press CHANNEL (V/v) on the front panel or CH/TRK(v/V) on the remote control to change the RF output channel (CH 03 or CH 04).
Turn off the DVD+VCR.
1 Press POWER to turn the power off.
2 Press TV/VCR, current VCR Output Channel will appear on the LCD display.
3 Each time TV/VCR is pressed for 2 seconds, the LCD display changes as follow
clock press tv/vcr RF3 2 secondes later RF4.
• VCR Output Channel is automatically set during EZ Set Up.
1. If Channel 3 (or 4) is an active broadcast channel in your area, the Channel 4 (or 3) will be set.
2. If both channel are the active channel or none active channel, the VCR Output Channel will be set to Channel 3.
• Cancelled the EZ Set Up by pressing POWER during EZ Set Up before setting the Output Channel.
• VCR Output Channel will not change to previous VCR Output Channel if TV/VCR is pressed continuosly for more than 2
ok i downloaded and read your DVR-1000 manual , this is what you will do .
While the DVD+VCR is turned off, press and hold CHANNEL (up/down) button on the front panel for about five seconds.
The unit will turn itself on and “RF 03” or “RF 04” appears on the front panel display
Use CH ( up / down ) button on the front panel or CH ( up / down ) button on the remote control to change the RF output channel (CH 03 or CH 04).
Turn the DVD+VCR off and then on
Set the TV to channel 3 or 4 depending on the RF output channel you selected. Now you can watch the DVD+VCR playback on CH3 or CH4 of your TV
PS , you should see a child lock button on the remote , if you press that button , you will disable front panel button controls so kids can't change anything , press it again to unlock that feature , it might come in handy.
THE CABLE OR ANTENA NEED TO SCREW INTO THE INPUT OF YOUR UNIT THEN A SMALL WIRE OUT TO THE TV FROM YOUR UNIT PUSH RECORD WHEN SHOW IS ON TV !SO ITS CABLE INTO VCR INPUT THEN CABLE FROM OUTPUT OF VCR TO TV ....TV ON CHANNEL 3 AND VCR UNIT ON CHANNEL 3
Unfortunately, Broksonic's website doesn't offer manual downloads. But product information for the 810C and 810D both say the output is channel 3/4 switchable. So if there isn't a rear panel switch (or one hiding somewhere else on the unit), it must be through a setup menu via the remote control. If you have the remote it shouldn't be too much trouble to experiment with the options until you find the right menu. If you didn't get the remote along with the unit, you are probably going to have to live with whatever channel it's on already.
Here is my setup.
1) Separate DVD player
2) Separate VCR
3) Digital to Analog Converter box
4) Analog TV
5) Rabbit ears (UHF/VHF) antenna
The antenna goes into the converter box.
The RF-output of the converter goes into the RF-Input of the VCR
The DVD output goes into the front input jacks of the VCR
The VCR RF-output goes into the TV RF-Input
The VCR Line output goes into the front of the TV
To watch DVDs, we turn on the DVD player, turn on the VCR, and set the VCR channel to L2, and tune the TV to channel 3. The converter is off.
To auto record on the VCR, the converter must be tuned to the station being recorded. The converted must be turned on, the TV can be off.
To watch VCR tapes, turn the TV and VCR on. The TV is set to channel 3. Just press play on the VCR.
To Watch TV. Turn the TV and converter on. The TV is set to channel 3. Change the stations using the converter.
You can watch the TV programs with the tuner of the unit. (Usually channel 3 or 4 of the TV is available for the RF converter setting.) Be sure to connect the unit to a TV using the RF cable. 1 Select channel 3 on your TV. 2 Press [VIDEO/TV] on the remote control. • If noise appears, change the RF output channel of the unit to CH 4 by pressing [VIDEO/TV] for 3 seconds. The RF output channel will alternate between CH3 and CH4
