Question about Philips Magnavox MWR10D6 DVD Recorder
Everything works perfectly as far as being able to watch vhs dvd's but I can't record my tv shows like I have been able to with any other vcr....what am I doing wrong???????
Well, sort of. i had a playstation, a vcr and a magnavox dvd recorder (MWR10D6) all hooked to one tv with one plug in the back. i took the playstation out of the mix and all of a sudden the dvd recorder would play dvd's but i couldn't tape anything but snow. also i can't finalize my discs after i tape them so i have to watch them on the machine i've recorded them on. if anyone can help me with either or both of these problems i would appreciate it. thanks.

I'm afraid that the manual for this unit is a little dense.
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.
