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.

I have a apex tv and a dvd/vhs recorder, with a cable from wall only, how do I install


If you wish to record (VHS) off cable :
First connect the co-ax cable from the wall to the input on the DVD/VHS , then connect a second from the output of the DVD/VHS to the input of the TV.
You will need to match the channel (3/4) output and input. There should be a switch on the back of the DVD/VHS.
Tune the TV to channel 3 or 4 to match, To watch DVD/VHS .
Channel selection will be with the DVD/VHS when it is powered on.
TV will tune to channel when the DVD/VHS is off.

Most Combo Recorders (VHS and DVD) will prevent you from
recording a Copyrighted VHS tape program onto DVD.
Try recording a TV program onto your VHS tape, then
transfer it to your DVD and see if your new DVD recording
will work or not.

Playback Problem


open the recorder, 4 screws at each corner, wipe the playing head and the voice reccognition head, to the right of the playing head head with a baby wipe, you will be amiazed what **** comes off it. DON'T scrub it just wipe lightly, spin the playing head so it's clean. If you have a lint free cloth ( a glasses cleaning cloth you get in the case is brilliant) Try the tape (before you put it in make sure everything is DRY!) and your problem should be solved. It worked for me! and that came from a TV engineer

I cannot record using a DVD/VHS player.


You can record. From antenna to converter box, from converter box to vcr. From vcr to TV.
TV on Channnel 3 VCR on channel 3, and set channel on converter box. Then Record.

Time recording works the same way, but you can set for only one channel at a time. Tht is the only restriction that I have not overcome. The converter box sets the channel. Gee Whizz

Daewoo dvd install


  1. Be sure that your VCR is a newer one with at least one "line in" set of jacks in the back. Some have one in the back and one in front.
  2. Your DVD Player should have a video/sound cable with 3 connectors on each end. Otherwise get one or 3 single cables.
  3. Connect DVD Video Out to VHS Video In (yellow).
  4. Connect DVD Left to VHS Left (white).
  5. Connect DVD Right to VHS Right (red).
  6. Turn on your DVD and VHS.
  7. Your VHS should have a tuner setting for "L1" or "L2". Select whichever shows the DVD's video on the TV.
  8. Remember to select that input channel whenever you want to watch the DVD.
  9. When watching a DVD, if you have a blank VHS in the VCR, you may record what you are watching onto the VHS, just as if you were recording from cable.
Verify these steps and you should be good to go ;)
