Connect the yellow/red/white out from the VCR to the same inputs on the 2160. Press setup. select general. select video select video input. select L1 or L2. press ok. select video or s-video.
press setup to exit.
select HDD or DVD (whichever you want to record to)
use source or channel to select L1 or L2
press rec mode to select sp/lp/ep/etc
press record to start recording
start playback on the input device
press stop to stop recording.
The manual is available as a PDF file on the web. It would save a lot of typing...

Records & dubs but very poor resolution


Hi,

You've got a Dish Network's HD DVR and a Toshiba 720P HDTV - so this part of the mix will maintain the HD pictures and high quality digital audio that you're used to seeing.

The trouble begins when you introduced the Magnavox VCR / DVD device. The highest quality video content that this device can record is the 480 type, regardless of the input or source quality - which in your case would be 720P via HDMI cables. 480 is considered "SD" or "standard definition". This is the weakest link in your setup and is responsible for your unsatisfactory results.

The Magnavox will "upconvert" to 1080 lines of resolution. The key here is the term "upconvert" True HD recordings are taken of a scene and capturing either 720 or 1080 lines of resolution in the image or video (such as a camera taking a photo or video); or recording the playback of a previously recorded 720 or 1080 lines of resolution source. Recording a 480 lines of resolution source with a an 720 or 1080 lines of resolution device will not make the image HD. The recording can not possibly be better than the original. In fact, due to losses, each generation of copy becomes worse and worse. Upconverting simply "fills in" the missing parts between the 480 source and 720 or 1080 output with what it "thinks" is missing data. The results are what you see on the screen. The original capture did not save more info that 480 lines of resolution so it is really impossible to improve it.

The recording can not ever exceed the quality of the original (the Dish Network DVR at 720 or more) and will only be as good as the weakest link (the Magnavox DVD / VCR at 480). Additionally, the moment you change from digital to analog, you lose quality instantly. Digital signals - both video and audio will always be faithfully reproduced do to error correcting technology, etc. that simply isn't available in the analog world.

You need to use a digital recorder capable of capturing and playing back of 720 or 1080 lines of resolution video and AC3 audio for optimum video and audio on a Blu Ray recorder or other device with hard drives or memory such as MP3 recorder. Otherwise you'll have to accept reduced quality of standard L & R analog audio and 480 lines of resolution of SD video. You can not expect HD audio and video if you try to save to equipment designed for SD / analog.

Trying to connect Magnavox MWR 10D6 DVD/Recorder to Sanyo HDTV. TV is connected to Dish network through coax. cable.


Unfortunately, the Magnavox MWR10D6 recorder can not record HD signals. It's only video inputs are coax (RF) and composite video; both are limited to 480i (SD). NTSC (analog signals) are translated to video.

Your best recording option is to connect the composite video output of the Dish receiver to the video input (yellow for video, red and white for audio) of the recorder. Then set the receiver to the channel that you want to record and set the recorder to Line In.

HD recorders may exist. They are much more expensive than the SD versions.

I wish that I had better news for you. The manual for the MWR10D6 is available from Funai here: http://www.funai-corp.com/support/om/MWR10D6.pdf .

I have surroundsound. I have dish network with hd dvr. I have a sony bravia hd tv. I have a dvd player, and cd player. I have a magnavox dvd recorder. I want to record from my dvr to my dvd recorder. ...


To get the functionality you're looking for you'll need to to take the cable running from your DVR output and connect it to the input on your DVD recorder. Next you want to connect a cable from your DVD recorder output and connect it to your TV. If this is an HD set up you want to use HD Cables for all of the connections.

Sure you can... connect a cable from the Output jacks of your DVD player and attach it to the Input jacks of your Magnavox the same way you connected the TV. You'll need to use your remote on the Magnavox to change the Input it records from so it conforms with where you plugged the cable into.

Have magnavox dvd recorder record direcTV DVR programs w/ hdtv


I am unfamiliar with this unit.
If you have scart connecters on both, connect av2 on the tv to av in on the recorder. set the recorder to record from av source.
You should now record a program, I think the static is the fact that composite is out from the dvd only, not an input, and in on the tv, not an output.

Hi - No, it isn't fixed yet. However, for some reason, if you will notice, at the top of this page in blue lettering, there is a reference to a "Toshiba, DVR........ . I did not notice that until after I had posted the request for help. The problem is with a new "Magnavox ZV457MG9" recorder/player. I would dearly love to find out how to fix the problem - I hate to give up - in fact I don't think I can give up! Hopefully, someone in your group will help shed some light on this!

Here is a link to the manual, but it is a little dense:
http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/MWR10D6.pdf

Now that the digital conversion is imminent, nothing will ever be simple again.
This is not the ONLY way to record with this machine, but here is one way: (I'm also assuming that you have a cable or satellite BOX - if you don't, let me know):
1. Connect a red, white, and yellow cable from a red/white/yellow OUT of your cable or satellite box to the Video IN and Audio IN of the Magnavox.
2. Connect a second red, white, and yellow cable from the Video and Audio OUT of the Magnavox to a red/white/yellow IN of your TV (most TV's only have INs and not OUTs, hence they may be unmarked either way - but this situation is rapidly changing).
3. Change your TV to the channel that corresponds to the red/white/yellow port - some TV's label it "AV1," "AV2" etc. - others label it "Video1", "Aux 1" etc. - I would have to know the exact model # of your TV to be sure.
4. As long as you can see the channel that you are trying to record on the TV screen, you can just press REC on the Magnavox with a blank DVD inserted.

Like I said, this is not the ONLY way, but it is probably the simplest.
