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.

I have an older tv with only a coaxial cable connection on the back, no others. I have a Magnavox dvd/vcr combo that does have RCA connections available and also a coaxial cable connection on the back. I...


First make sure you have the cable connected properly.. on the vcr it should be connected to the OUT coaxial connector.

Second.. the VCR usually has a VCR/TV setting..

Most TV's must be set to channel 3 or channel 4 to output the signal from the VCR when getting the signal via Coax.

So..insert a tape...hit play..tune the tv to channel 3 if you are not getting the playback signal..press the VCR/TV button on the vcr or vcr remote.

Repeat this on Channel 4

Check your cable to make sure the connections are tight.

Finally check your television menus for Input settings..make sure it is set to COAX/ANT
Make sure your VCR's output is not on some alternate output like L1 or L2 (line one or line two)

Best of luck!

Hitatchi 42HDF52 only receives channel 5 and 6 on analog RF input


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.

Connecting dtv box to vcr to dvd to the tv


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
Please rate my response and come back if you need more help!

Tv has snow screen but plays movies fine, just no cable channels come in clear, some one has said maybe tuner. Sanyo DS24425


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.

Connection to Dish service


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.

Can't record from my digital cable tv to my sylvania dvd/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.

Hitachi VCR and Phillips Magnavox TV


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
