Allegro ABV441 DVD player won't record T.V. Shows

I have the Allegro ABV441 VHS & DVD combo player. The VHS has no problem recording T.V. shows, but I can't seem to get the DVD player to record. Do I have to have a certain type of disc or is there more to it than just pushing the record button? I of course cannot find my owners manual and can't find anything else out there on the web on the subject.
Thanks for any information you can provide. It is the ABV441 not the ABV511

SOURCE: set clock

I just did that the other day! If you have the controller, press the setup/menu button and hit clock... However, since you wrote this many months ago, I'm sure you figured that out already lol... Just thought I'd answer, though, since I'm here.

You may need to change the input on your tv, and check the output cables to make sure they are hooked up correctly.

SOURCE: I have an Allegro DVD/VCR

There is not really a true 'universal remote.' If the remote is of older design than the set you wish to control, it will not contain the code set you need.
Before you buy another, check the mfr's website for code sets for any given model remote to ensure you aren't buying another one which will end up in a drawer. Unfortunately, this is a very common problem.

I have a Toshiba DVD/VCR combo and I want to know if i can record a VHS onto a blank DVD disc ?


It all depends on the model of DVD/VCR Combo and what VHS you want to copy.

Pre Recorded VHS are copyright protected so the system won't let you copy them.

RCA 8295n dvd-vcr combo starts recording from VHS tape to disk and then stops.


Is the VHS tape a store bought movie or show?

MacroVision and other copy protection systems are put into store bought tapes and discs of movies and shows, and are read by your recording equipment. Once it reads this, it stops recording.

Does the screen turn red before it stops? This is one of the indications that MacroVision is stopping you.

Can you record a dvd from vhs on this system ?


No you cannot - This is a DVD *PLAYER* / VCR combo - which means it features a DVD player & VHS recorder in one - you cannot record onto DVD - You can however watch a DVD while recording your tv program on the VCR.

I hope this answers your question.

If you want to convert your VHS to DVD you will need to purchase a standalone DVD recorder - I personally do not reocmmend the DVD recorder / VCR combos - or you can use a HDD/DVD recorder which stores recordings on a hard drive and later you can burn them on DVD, they allow editing, more flexible recording options, etc

HELP! I can't figure out how to Connect my Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo to my older TV


Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.
