Question about Magnavox MDR513H/F7 Player
All the analog & digital channels were successfully scanned in (or so I mistakenly thought). I wanted to record a show on the Hallmark channel (I can watch it live on the TV). Tried to set up a recording and the Magnavox recorder couldn't/wouldn't read the channel. Same thing when I wanted to record a PBS 2.3 show. No 2.3??? ALL the other channels are available on the Magnavox recorder. I successfully record shows on my Magnavox all the time. I had not, until recently, wanted to record from PBS 2.3 or Hallmark 33.5. Until I needed to do these recordings I was blissfully unaware of this problem. I did a new channel scan and that fixed the problem. Tonight I wanted to record the comedy channel 61.5 and it no longer exists in my scanned channels?!? So I did another channel scan and now I have the comedy channel again but the PBS 2.3 is again GONE. I didn't check on the Hallmark channel to see if that is AGAIN gone from the Magnavox scanned channels. WHAT is wrong with the Magnavox player/recorder? The connections are all solid. So why isn't the Magnavox scanning in ALL THE CHANNELS that are available to me? Why is it leaving out a few here and there and then when I perform a NEW channel scan it leaves out a different set of digital channels!?!?!!!

Hi, sometimes one also must hook up the Audio with the red & White audio stereo leads as well some HDMI do NOT stream the audio over the HDMI port, and thus one must use the RCA stereo jacks to supply audio to the device.
Some HDMI cables also don't have all the wires through and a change of cable may help, this is rare though.

This is normal for the ZV457MG9 units. The Magnavox ZV457MG9 does not have an analog (NTSC) tuner; additionally there is no digital (ATSC or QAM) tuner either. It will only record on line in (L1) which is a composite input (limited to SD). The HDMI port on the recorder is an HDMI out to TV, not an input. The component video jacks are also only outputs.
The manual for the Magnavox ZV457MG9/F7 is available here: http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/z/zv427mg9_f7/zv427mg9_f7_dfu_aen.pdf . The unit was manufactured for Magnavox by Funai; thus another link to the manual is http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/ZV427MG9.pdf .
I wish that I had better news for you.
(If your DVD/VCR recorder had a tuner, it would record off a coaxial (antenna) cable input. Many DVRs can record off the HD connection (HDMI or component); that may be a better option for replacing this Magnavox unit.)
