Orion VR0210 -- Connect S Video from laptop to VCR

Hi;

I have connected the S Video out from my Dell C640 laptop to the audio/video in jacks on the Orion VR0210 VRC. However, all I get is a blue screen on the TV.

Have tried adjusting the Windows Desktop Display properties -- but no joy.

Can anyone tell me what I need to do to get the PC display to appear on the TV?

If you have it hooked up properly then you should simply select the "source" using the TV remote - probably says S Video 1 or X depending upon the number of S vid ports the TV has. When you are sure that you have selected the correct source then on the PC you must select "Fn" or "Function" key then F9 (or FX depending on which key has the logo that looks like a monitor) then you should be good to go. I seen a similar problem on a Dell and the problem in that instance was a fault with the PC and the port wasn't senseing the S Vid cable.

Cannot get video on my Orion model VRO 211B


Could be a connection problem. Pins on plugs can become bent or damaged, sometimes it is the socket that the plug fits into that becomes damaged. Try a different connection lead.

Need to know step by step instructions 0n how to record from my tv to my vcr including plug ins


I am assuming you wish to record what is playing on your TV to the VCR and not just asking how to record on a VCR, which is much easier, just put your cable from your antenna/cable box on the vcr and pick a channel from antenna or use channel 3 or 4 for cable box and press record. To watch TV with or without recording connect VCR output (Either coax or Composite) to same type input on the TV. If this is your question, then comment if you have trouble and I will get more detailed. This is a good video on doing this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgb7uoLIaQE

So if you want to record what is playing on your TV to the VCR, you must have a TV OUT on the TV. The only types of TV OUT that I have seen that would match to a VCR are either coax or RCA.

If the TV OUT is coax just connect one end of coax cable to the TV OUT on the TV and connect the other end to the Antenna/Cable IN on the VCR. Play the program on the TV and record on the VCR usually on either channel 3 or 4. Unless you have the VCR set up to play on another TV you will just have to use trial and error (record on one channel and playback on TV to see if you recorded anything, is so that is right channel, if not, then try the other one.) to find out which.

So, on to recording the signal from a TV on a VCR. If the TV OUT is Composite (RCA jacks, yellow, red, and white or black) you will need some RCA (Composite) cables. They may be labeled patch cords or dubbing cables at the store. That is if you can find them. I don't know if they are still being sold as a video accessory. If not just use RCA audio cords.

There will be two plugs on each end for mono sound recording and three for stereo sound recording. You will have to have audio or L & R audio, and video OUT on your TV and audio or L & R audio, and video IN on your VCR. Plug the yellow cable end into the video OUT on your TV and the yellow on the other end into the video IN on your VCR. Do the same for audio. I have always seen yellow as the color for video, but audio is sometimes white and sometimes black, and in stereo audio right is usually red, but left can be either white or black. With a little luck the cable plugs and TV and VCR IN & OUT jacks will match in color. If sound is mono the is nothing to get wrong. If audio is stereo the worst that can happen is the sound for right side will play on the left and sound for the left side will play on the right. As long as red is used for right it should be correct.

If there is only one set of input jacks on the VCR, the VCR input will probably need to be set to 'Line In'. If there are multiple sets of input jacks they should be labeled 'Input 1', 'Input 2', etc.. The VCR input setting will need to be set to the input you plugged the RCA cables into. The jacks you plugged cable ends into should be labeled. The setting for input on the VCR and TV should match the label on that device.

Now turn on the TV and put it on what you want to record. Do this before it comes on if you want to record all of it. Having set the VCR on 'Line In' or on the correct input, just press record on the VCR. Leave the TV on while recording.

As long as the TV is on and going to play something you want to record, you can set the timer on the VCR to record it, but instead of setting a channel you will choose either 'Line In' or the input number you are using.

This should always work to record a show on the TV when the signal is coming in through a coax cable from an antenna or cable box. But there are some TVs that only send that signal to the TV Out jacks. So if you are watching something from another source, like another VCR, a DVD player, or a video camera on TV on the TV and try to record that you will only record the incoming signal from the antenna or cable box.

In that case just connect the other VCR, the DVD or the camera to the recording VCR and play it on the one using the OUT jacks and record on the VCR using the Input jacks. This should make a better recording too. You can see what is happening by using the OUT jacks on the VCR and connecting the cable from them to the IN jacks on the TV and selecting the 'Line In' or 'Input 1, 2 etc.' matching where you plugged the cable from the VCR in on the TV.

Summary:
Device playing what you want to record is the: SOURCE
1. Using RCA dubbing cables plug them into the OUT jacks on the source and the IN jacks on the VCR.
2. Set the VCR input to the setting that matches the label on the jacks in which the RCA cables are plugged.
3. Play the program on the source and press record on the VCR to begin to record it.
Note: Leave the TV on if that is the source.

If you have any questions I assume I will get a notification if you leave a comment and I will be happy to answer.

Hope this helps. Good Luck!,

I want to connect our VCR to the new Sharp HDTV,but I do not find audio,video out on the tv.How do I link the two?


Some HDTVs can output analog video and audio but if you say your HDTV does not, then you would have to use some other tuner/box/decoder/converter such as a cable box if you have cable TV service or a DTV converter box for over-the-air TV or a satellite box. The VCR would connect to the tuner/converter box and record analog video and audio using the RCA yellow video and white audio jacks. Standard VCRs cannot record high-def video except as down-converted analog video.

The VCR would then connect to the HDTVs inputs (yellow, white) for playback.

We have a 4 head hsu 110 vcr. the inputs for the aux cables are not color marked so we're just wondering where the cables go. thanks! peace


The HSU110 doesn't have stereo audio jacks. It has a one audio and video input jack and a similar audio and video output jack. The input jacks are at the top and the outputs are below. The video (using the AV RCA yellow) jacks are on the right of the set of RCA jacks. If you connect this to a TV with stereo audio, pick either the left or right channel on the tv to connect whichever wire you connect to the audio out of the VCR.

The manual for the Mitsubishi HSU110 is available at http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/25789/MITSUBISHI-VCR-97110132 .

I hope this helps.

Got cox Digital cable box today, cox can not tell me how to hook up to box to make it rec/play. Info I read old cox papers from 2002 says I need a vcr controller, Cox does not know what that is and it...


For a standard VCR which is what most people have, all you need to do is connect a yellow RCA cable for video from the yellow output jack on the cable box rear panel to the VCR's yellow video input jack on its rear panel. Next connect a white RCA audio cable from the cable box white RCA output jack to the VCRs white RCA audio input jack. You can record a cable show by selecting the LINE input on the VCR and selecting the TV show on the cable box.

Now for playback, connect the VCR to your TV. Connect a yellow video cable from the VCR's yellow output jack to the TV's yellow video input jack. Same for the white audio connection. Select on the TV, the source input for the VCR. Its not complicated and you should not need any other devices for a standard setup with a digital cable box and vcr.

Trying to figure out how to connect VCR to laptop ie cables etc Want to transfer tapes to DVD


This will depend on what the connections are on the laptop. All you need is a video in and two audio (left & right) in connectors. If these are 3.5mm jacks sockets on the laptop. Then all you need is convertor cables. It will be easy if the VCR has a scart socket. As you can get a scart plug that has RCA plugs on the other end for audio and video out. All you need then is 3.5mm to female RCA plug lead(s) or if you can only get them with male RCA plugs, 3 inline connectors.
You can also get a USB to RCA plugs. See image below.
images below as well: of 3.5mm cable with RCA (male) and the female version and couplers for the males, plus the scart lead (yellow RCA is video) (all cables can be get from Amazon)

What cables do i use to connect to the tv...the vcr has yellow and white areas to connect and the antenna....it tapes, but i do not get a picture when i play it


First off, you need to hook up audio and video by using either an A/V cable or a coaxial to connect the VCR player to the TV, for the A/V cable, the yellow, white and red jacks are coded, match the jacks up with the wires, put one end of the A/V cable to the VCR player OUTPUT jacks and the other end to the INPUT jacks in back of TV. For the coaxial cable, connect the OUT TO TV or OUTPUT jack of the VCR to the ANT. IN or INPUT JACK of the TV. Connect the power cables of both units to wall outlets, and then you're set. Good luck to you!

All my problems are with the hookup of tv and dvd/vcr combo. Just can't do it. Is there anyone I can call tv repairman? I hear the Geeks only work on computers.


Simple matter. The Yellow cable will connect from Video Out of VCR to VIDEO IN of TV. Red cable will connect from AUDIO OUR (R) of VCR to AUDIO IN (R) of TV and AUDIO OUT (L) of VCR will connect to AUDIO IN (L) of TV. Play VCR or DVD and select AV1 or AV2 of TV using TV remote control.This button may also be labelled as TV/VIDEO on your TV's Remote Control

LXI VHS - No Video on TV


Hi Carol!

I'm assuming the box you have this connected to is a cable converter box. If this is true, it won't have inputs for video and audio; those RCA jacks are outputs to a TV or other device that can take that kind of input. Connecting your VCR outputs to those jacks does nothing.

The simplest way to connect the VCR to the TV is using the VCR's RF output (channel 4 in your case) from the connector that says "out to TV" or "antenna out". Just remember that outputs connect to inputs. Connect the cable box output (the one marked "out to TV") to the VCR's antenna input. Then connect the VCR's antenna output back to the TV. You will need to pick up another connecting cable with F-connectors if you don't have one. Then you just put the TV on channel 4 to watch tapes. Just leave the VCR turned off for normal TV viewing.

This connection scheme also allows you to record a program from the cable box. The only thing you have to remember is that the VCR must always be set to record on the cable box output channel (channel 4, you've said). The cable box selects a channel from the cable system, but it's always sending channel 4 to the TV. (If you're confused, you're not alone. This is the part most people have trouble getting a handle on.) One thing you can't do is record and watch different channels at one time, though.

If the TV has an AV input available, it will have the three color-coded RCA jacks on the back for the audio and video from the VCR. Connect the VCR to those inputs and switch the set to the AV input to watch tapes. (If the TV isn't a stereo model, it will have only one audio input jack - white - and you'll need to get a Y-adapter at Radio Shack to join the right and left audio into one plug for the TV.) You'll get a better-quality picture and sound connecting the VCR this way.

Orion model vpdc connection problem


Most, if not all, TV sets which have a tuner section (will tune in individual channels either off an antenna, cable system etc.) should be UHF capable. UHF channels are approximately channels 14 - 83 of the standard broadcast spectrum, unless this has now changed with HDTV or other RF spectrum changes by the FCC. These channels are not the same as the cable channels, for which the mode of the TV set must be set.

Anyway, you will connect the VCR to the RF input of the TV, and set the TV for non-cable mode (broadcast). You will likely need to set the TV for a particular channel which matches what the VCR sends the signal out on.

I assume also the VCR doesn't have composite video out & audio out jacks on it? If it does, these hookups can be made to matching connections on the TV.

Hope this helps.
