We just got Bell Express View Satellite T.V. and would like to use our VCR with the set up. The Bell Express View system is asking us for a 3 digit manufacturer's code. We have looked everywhere on the VCR but cannot find a 3 digit number to put into the system. Therefore, we cannot get our satellite T.V. hooked up to the VCR. Does anyone know what the 3 digit manufacturer's code for the Panasonic PV-7401 is?????
MODEL # SLV-N60

You will not be able to record satellite (digital signal) onto a VCR (analog signal) without what is called a scan converter. This is the only way to do it with your current machine. It can be done but the cost of doing it properly will come close to using a different recording method.
To record a satellite you will need two scart leads.
Plug one end of the first scart lead into the "DVD/VCR SCART" socket on the back of the satellite receiver, then plug the other end into the "INPUT" scart on the back of the VCR. Take one end of the second scart lead and plug it into the "OUTPUT" socket on the back of the VCR and plug the other end into "SCART IN" socket on the back of the TV.
To record, select the satellite channel you want to record, then, on the VCR, select scart input, (at this point, you can record a satellite program). To watch a satellite channel or recorded satellite channel, select the scart input on the TV.
If you need anymore information, then let me know.

You need to plug a red, white, and yellow cord from the red, white, and yellow OUT of your cable or satellite box into the red, white, and yellow labelled VCR IN/LINE 1 on the Philips. To view what you are trying to record, make sure there is another red, white, and yellow cable plugged from the DVD/VCR OUT of the Philips to your television. Make sure the television is on the appropriate source channel (AUX 1, AUX 2, VIDEO 1, VIDEO 2, etc). Then press the VCR button on the Philips. You should now see your cable or sat channel (as long as it's not an HD Satellite box) on the television screen. Press record, and you are on your way. Good luck!
get a 2 A/V cords (yellow, white, and red plugs). Plug between the Satellites "video out" jacks and the VCR's "input" jacks. Connect the second cords between the VCR's "video out" jacks and the TV's "video in" jacks. Make sure the VCR is set to the input that you plugged the satellite cords into and make sure the TV is set to the input that you plugged the VCR's cords into.
And then you're done. To record, set satellite to channel desired, set VCR to record on the video input (instead of a channel number) and you're good to go.
I solved the problem with my DVD recorder. I attached a cable from the loop out on the back of the FTA receiver to the RF in on the back of the recorder. All I was missing was the signal from the satellite. Everything is working fine now.
I'd be pretty certain that every VCR made these days (and of the last 10-15+ years) can be set to do a timed recording. They can be set for a one time recording, weekly or daily record.
Whether used with a cable/satellite box, or outside antenna, you must ensure proper hookup. I'm not real familiar with recent cable/sat receiver boxes, but older ones had to be set to the channel you wanted to record, as the VCR will only see that channel. On older cable (no cable box) & outdoor antenna systems, a VCR could tune in and record any channel, while you watched another one.
Anyway, check the capability of the cable/sat box, and follow suggested hookup. You will likely need to set the box to the channel you want to record before you retire for the night.
