VCR is analogue, However you can still use it to record digital programmes when connected via a digital set top box. You can only record the channel you have selected on the screen. In other words, you cannot record a channel programme while watching another channel. I use mine on a second TV and when recorded I take the tape out and put it into my main TV for viewing at a later date. I don't watch too much TV so it works fine for me for the odd programme.
The output of the Dish Network box should be hooked to the input of the VCR. The output of the VCR should be hooked to the input of the TV. The VCR should be on channel 3 to record. Select channel to be recorded on the Dish Network box.
It sounds like you have Dish Network box output hooked to TV input. & VCR output hooked to an aux. input on the TV.
please note in your vhs dvd manual it tells which dvd (maxell, tdk etc.)are compatible with the recorder okay do you have a cable/satellite box connected to tv/monitor? yes or no
yes- is the the tv on ch 3? cable connected to cable box in, cable box out connected to dvd in,(on dvd set up menu make sure broadcast is cable) dvd out connect to tv... ? please note some dvd recorder will not record HBO (you can record on vhs tape)
no connect antenna to dvd in, dvd out goes to tv.....
In order to record from the tv onto vhs, it is required that you have a tv signal coming straight to the vcr. If your converter box is plugged into the tv alone then the vcr won't record. To fix this, try plugging your converter box directly into the vcr, instead, and then plug the vcr into the tv. You may have to retune the channels.
Thisd unit has both record and PB features and an analog tuner. So if you're using it on a regular stick antenna you will require a converter box if you're using it as a tuner. Otherwise, cable or sat it will work just fine.
A DTV converter box will take digital broadcast signals from the antenna and convert them to a format compatible with the VCR. You will be able to record programs received through the DTV box on your VCR if you could record analog over-the-air programs before the digital changeover. You can use either the RF output or the component output from the DTV box to input to the VCR.
Connect with RCA cable to RCA jacks\plugs::
output [player] audio to INPUT [recorder] OUTPUT [player] Video to INPUT [recorder]
Place blank tape in RECORDER, Tape that you want to record from into PLAYER.Press Record [recorder machine], wait one second, press PAUSE.( thats to give record tape "breathing" space.) Set up your player tape to start playing. When you know what you want to record, press PAUSE again to begining recording. Press PAUSE after the recorded section to install 2nd tape, etc. etc.
NOTE:: some VCRs use PAUSE 2nd time to release and continue recording, while some machines you must press RECORD button again to release PAUSE. you must expirement before begining your project.
Probably cabled wrong.
Make sure the VCR is getting a signal to record.
Put in a movie and get the TV set up to watch it.
Now put in your blank tape and switch the VCR to what you want to record and make sure you can see it on the TV.
