Hitachi VCR Model Number VT-F392A.
Serial Number 50768582.
I am able to play movies with one coax cable running from the VCR (out) port to the TV Ant/Cable (In) port.The Direct TV connects to the Direct TV receiver. I have nothing going from the receiver to the VCR.
I can't record from the TV. What type of connecting cable do I need for this set up?
Connect your Direct TV to the Ant. In connection on your VCR. When you want to watch TV, just tune the TV to channel 3 (or whatever channel the Receiver is set for). When you wish to record, set your VCR to that same channel and set your TV to the channel that your VCR outputs to. For simplicity sake, I would suggest setting both systems to channel 3 and just watching your program through the VCR. If you are still using an "off air" antenna, then connect that antenna to the ANT. IN connection on your Direct TV receiver and when you turn off the dish, it will pass the signal through just like the VCR would.

If you have tried autoprogramming and have found nothing it may be a bad tuner. Is your VCR is hooked up via coax or into a video input? If it is hooked up via video and is working but the coax connection direct isnt it will be a bad TV tuner. Easiest cheapest fix is to use you VCR to change channels or get a Digital Cable Terminal from you cable provider and hook it into video or compnent.
you can hook the cable box into the vcr and then out of the vcr into the spliter which will turn your tv red/white/yellow signel input into two inputs( you can get this at most radio shacks for about $7.00 dollors) this leaves you with one more input for the dvd player

It may very well be the tuner. If it has another means of connecting to the tv try composite or component cable. If that isn't possible try replacing the coax from the wall plate to tuner and from tuner to tv. This is if you have a cable box also called an STB in your home. If you do not have an STB try changing the coax from wall plate to tv. You may even want to replace the barrel on the wallplate as well. If the cable runs through the VCR disconnect it and run it straight to the tv and this will determine if the problem is in the VCR.
Hope this helps you out.
Your t.v is having only RFin , and if you connecting dish receiver , normaly their are two o/p for receiver one is RF and two is for audio out and video out. if your connecting direct RFout to t.v RF in then you have to tune the t.v in all bands. if your receiver do not having RFout facility, then you have to connect AV out to converter and then RFin of t.v. if you having a vcr, then connect AVout of dish receiver to vcr AVin and then vcr RFout to t.v again tune the t.v and pwer on the vcr.
Depending on the unit your going to need to check the back of the DVR for video out ports... My DVR has VID/HDMI/VCR/1394/SaTa and IR ports I use the VCR out to record with... because on my DVR I can say "Play this movie... now record to VCR and it will only play the movie on those VCR ports not on my TV so all I gotta do is hit record on my VCR... As long as you have audio/video jacks on the VCR. Then even some have it blocked so you can't do that... depends on model. So try recording on the VCR using the video ports instead of the COAX cable.
first lets do a checking at your remote to make sure its working properly, how ? use a digital camera and point it where the LED or eye of the remote , when pointing the camera to the remote press any button of remote while watching the camera , if you see lights coming out its means remote is working .I did some searching myself at the website you purchased the remote, look like thet send you the wrong replacement. the right replacement model is MODEL: CLU436UI , not VT-RM6654a . hope this helps .
Mentor, sounds like it`s wired incorrectly or your using RCA cables (yellow, red, white ends) out of the vcr into the tv, If your using RCA cables the tv`s "input" (on the remote) has to be switched to "video input 1 or 2" etc to see the vcr tape. If you want to see the vcr`s picture on channel 3/4 you have to tell me if your using a cable or sattelite box and then I can tell you how to wire it with the coax cable, let me know, BMW Rider
