Out to tv connects to your input or where the antenna for the tv is located. If you have an antenna hooked to you tv, remove it and hook in the vcr. Then put the antenna to input on the vcr.

Need to know step by step instructions 0n how to record from my tv to my vcr including plug ins


I am assuming you wish to record what is playing on your TV to the VCR and not just asking how to record on a VCR, which is much easier, just put your cable from your antenna/cable box on the vcr and pick a channel from antenna or use channel 3 or 4 for cable box and press record. To watch TV with or without recording connect VCR output (Either coax or Composite) to same type input on the TV. If this is your question, then comment if you have trouble and I will get more detailed. This is a good video on doing this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgb7uoLIaQE

So if you want to record what is playing on your TV to the VCR, you must have a TV OUT on the TV. The only types of TV OUT that I have seen that would match to a VCR are either coax or RCA.

If the TV OUT is coax just connect one end of coax cable to the TV OUT on the TV and connect the other end to the Antenna/Cable IN on the VCR. Play the program on the TV and record on the VCR usually on either channel 3 or 4. Unless you have the VCR set up to play on another TV you will just have to use trial and error (record on one channel and playback on TV to see if you recorded anything, is so that is right channel, if not, then try the other one.) to find out which.

So, on to recording the signal from a TV on a VCR. If the TV OUT is Composite (RCA jacks, yellow, red, and white or black) you will need some RCA (Composite) cables. They may be labeled patch cords or dubbing cables at the store. That is if you can find them. I don't know if they are still being sold as a video accessory. If not just use RCA audio cords.

There will be two plugs on each end for mono sound recording and three for stereo sound recording. You will have to have audio or L & R audio, and video OUT on your TV and audio or L & R audio, and video IN on your VCR. Plug the yellow cable end into the video OUT on your TV and the yellow on the other end into the video IN on your VCR. Do the same for audio. I have always seen yellow as the color for video, but audio is sometimes white and sometimes black, and in stereo audio right is usually red, but left can be either white or black. With a little luck the cable plugs and TV and VCR IN & OUT jacks will match in color. If sound is mono the is nothing to get wrong. If audio is stereo the worst that can happen is the sound for right side will play on the left and sound for the left side will play on the right. As long as red is used for right it should be correct.

If there is only one set of input jacks on the VCR, the VCR input will probably need to be set to 'Line In'. If there are multiple sets of input jacks they should be labeled 'Input 1', 'Input 2', etc.. The VCR input setting will need to be set to the input you plugged the RCA cables into. The jacks you plugged cable ends into should be labeled. The setting for input on the VCR and TV should match the label on that device.

Now turn on the TV and put it on what you want to record. Do this before it comes on if you want to record all of it. Having set the VCR on 'Line In' or on the correct input, just press record on the VCR. Leave the TV on while recording.

As long as the TV is on and going to play something you want to record, you can set the timer on the VCR to record it, but instead of setting a channel you will choose either 'Line In' or the input number you are using.

This should always work to record a show on the TV when the signal is coming in through a coax cable from an antenna or cable box. But there are some TVs that only send that signal to the TV Out jacks. So if you are watching something from another source, like another VCR, a DVD player, or a video camera on TV on the TV and try to record that you will only record the incoming signal from the antenna or cable box.

In that case just connect the other VCR, the DVD or the camera to the recording VCR and play it on the one using the OUT jacks and record on the VCR using the Input jacks. This should make a better recording too. You can see what is happening by using the OUT jacks on the VCR and connecting the cable from them to the IN jacks on the TV and selecting the 'Line In' or 'Input 1, 2 etc.' matching where you plugged the cable from the VCR in on the TV.

Summary:
Device playing what you want to record is the: SOURCE
1. Using RCA dubbing cables plug them into the OUT jacks on the source and the IN jacks on the VCR.
2. Set the VCR input to the setting that matches the label on the jacks in which the RCA cables are plugged.
3. Play the program on the source and press record on the VCR to begin to record it.
Note: Leave the TV on if that is the source.

If you have any questions I assume I will get a notification if you leave a comment and I will be happy to answer.

Hope this helps. Good Luck!,

get a 2 A/V cords (yellow, white, and red plugs). Plug between the Satellites "video out" jacks and the VCR's "input" jacks. Connect the second cords between the VCR's "video out" jacks and the TV's "video in" jacks. Make sure the VCR is set to the input that you plugged the satellite cords into and make sure the TV is set to the input that you plugged the VCR's cords into.
And then you're done. To record, set satellite to channel desired, set VCR to record on the video input (instead of a channel number) and you're good to go.

Toshiba Model: SD-V295 DVD/VCR Combo Setup for TV recording


The proper hookup is antenna or cable into the VCR RF/antenna input, then VCR RF/antenna output to the TV RF input. The hookup you describe means no signal is getting to the VCR.

With some TVs, there can be Video and audio output jacks which can be hooked to the video and audio jacks of the VCR. However this would likely mean you could only record the channel being watched, and, the TV would have to be on.

Getting a dvd player to record vhs to dvd


The RF converter takes the Red/White/Yellow as INPUTS and converts them to either channel 3 or 4. You need to go the other way. You need a tuner or another VCR to convert from RF (channel 3 or 4) to a standard AV signal (Red/White/Yel).

Tuning in Akai Video


Please explain what you mean by "tuning in."  Are you referring to hooking up to your Television, or to a cable/satellite box?  Or can you not see video when you play a VCR.

Check your hookup cabling.  With a cable or satellite system, the VCR normally is hooked between the cable/sat receiver box and the TV.  Cable box RF output to VCR RF input, VCR RF output to TV RF input.

There are other possibilities when your TV has video or line inputs.

First, have you doublechecked the video hookup? It sounds like you are using the video/audio inputs to the TV, so make sure you have VCR video out cabled to TV video input, and the TV source/input selection set to that input (video 1 etc.). If this checks out, check for a dirty video head on the VCR, though a dirty head usually results in a blank or blue video display (older VCRs, snow). You could do a process of elimination by hooking VCR to a different TV and see what is displayed then. Lastly, I assume you've tried multiple tapes, just in case a home recorded tape was incorrectly recorded?

Recording


First make sure you are hooked up in back. You can go either way. Cable out to tv, Cable or RF in from antenna should be from what you are using like cable, satellite, or just antenna. Then you should have set put on channel 3 or 4 and you can switch that in back of VCR also. Then if you don't see picture on screen with vcr on then find channel that you are coming in on like for satellite you need it to be on 3 or 4, cable you can just put it on the channel you want to record. The other way are from Video Jacks the red, white, yellow. If this is the way you are hooked in then you should look for video 1, 2 or which ever you are hooked into and find on set. then look on vcr for video or aux 1, 2 or depending on the one you are hooked in to. Hope this helps. If not then tell what you are using and what you have done so far!

Vcr to tv connection


There are probably a couple of different ways to hook things up. One is you hook the VCR "in between" the indoor antenna & the set. Hook antenna to VCR RF/Ant In, then VCR RF/Ant out to the Antenna input on TV. Your VCR will then be able to record one channel, while you watch another on TV. To play back the VCR, or do any VCR setup, TV channel must be set to either channel 3 or 4. The other way is to use the Video & audio input/outputs on the VCR & TV. You will need the appropriate cable(s). Match the VCR video/audio outs with the set of inputs on TV. Video and audio out on the TV go back to the video/audio inputs on VCR. In order to view VCR playback, menu setup, you will need to select that input (line, aux, video 1 etc.) on the TV. This hookup probably won't allow the recording of a second channel while watching one. As regards the hft channels, I assume you live in an area where such is being broadcast. The TV can probably be put into a programming mode where it will scan for all available channels, and put them into memory, or they can be programmed manually.

No sound


check your hookup of audio connections both to and from VCR. does audio input of VCR go to the proper audio out of the TV & audio out of VCR go to the correct audio input jack of TV? Your exact hookup might not be like this, but this is where to start. Some VCRs may also have an audio source switch, so check for this also. If hookup is correct, and all cabling is OK, then an internal problem is possible, and repair of such is doubtful, as most VCRs these days are disposable; repair not recommended.
