Make sure you have scart leads plugged into correc t inputs, lots of people make this maistake. If this is not the issue then start a tape playing and put the TV into search mode, when it finds the tape you are playing, store the channel. Obvioilst play something that could not be broadcast at the same time so you know when you find it.
If the tv is working with the cable box with the coax to channel 4 ( then with this configuration to send any signal to the VCR actually it is posible to use a splitter with coax and send the signal to the tv and vcr after the cable box. vcr has tobe in channel 4 also, all channel selection is done in the cable box then anything you see in the tv is recorded in vcr. BUT guess what: You maybe can try something else:
If you send the cable from the wall straight to the splitter and then from splitter to the TV and to VCR, now you can record differnt channel than you are watching in the tv but in this case scenario you need to send the vcr to the video input 1 of the tv to play what is record. Any way to install this TV and VCR you not always need to depend in the cable box.
With cable input connected to "RF in"on rear of unit make sure vidoe input is set to "Tuner". This will show up on the TV screen. Change channels numerically or using up/down arrow keys on DVR remote. Note there is a slight pause between changing channels.You probably will have to "autoscan" for channel setup/etc. If you say your TV set is old; it probabaly is equiped with coax
connection only/set TV channel to "3" or "4". when yot opt to play vcr/dvd it will override your
cable channel selected. Hope this helps!
ok cable sat wire goes into input of dvd-vcr input then coming out from the dvd vcr and into the moulator then a wire out to the tv now make sure your vcr is set to the right setting ...now you can record 1 cable..2.vcr dvd..3 modulator...4...tv make sure vcr is set to monitor
You gotta connect the signal cable to the input of the vcr and in the output of the vcr other cable to the tv input,when you got to record some program you need put the channel number on the vcr not in the tv if you conect the vcr to the tv in the avinputs the tv will be in video mode,because the vcr receipt the signal.
Press Menu, press up and down arrows to choose the Input Select option then press side arrows to set the channel. Tuner will automatically cycle through all available channels in your area. After the Auto channel search is complete make sure the Channel source is set appropriately (TV or CATV) by pressing up and down arrows and chossing the correct source by pressing the side arrows using the channel setup menu. Press Menu to return to the TV screen. Use CH/TRK arrows or CHANNEL arrows on the front panel to cycle the DVD+VCR through the channels in memory.
