1 - To start with..
Plug aerial lead into the "RF input" on rear of vcr
--> now you can tape programs (providing vc is "tuned" correctly)

2 - Plug a lead from "RF output" into tv's "RF input"
--> now you can watch programs on tv _independently_ of vcr (ie can be watching 1 program & taping a separate one on vcr)

3 - Plug red/white/yellow cable from vcr's "VIDEO/AUDIO output" into tv's "VIDEO/AUDIO input"
--> now you can
1) play a tape in vcr, & watch it on tv
& 2) change what watching on tv via vcr's remote


* Note: This is for analogue terrestial television (aerial on roof), not digital/satellite tv, connecting to stereo, etc, etc (the "more involved " setups)

I have purchased Samsung 550 - series L5 - I don't seem to be able to hook up the VCR to it to record. I have cable on it and I would like to be enable to record programs. Television ask if I want to...


You don't record from TV, you record from cable so cable needs to be hooked up to input on VCR.
If you don't use cable box you would hook cable to VCR then out of VCR to TV. If you use cable box then you need to connect Video and Audio outputs on cable box to Video and Audio inputs on VCR and switch input of VCR to Line input.

I have a Toshiba VCR w522 and would like to record a program previously recorded from a DVR. Is it possible?


If the vcr has two scarts connect the DVR player to one and select that imput. Watch the program using the the other scart connected to the TV. Press record on the vcr and then start the DVR player going. If it doesn't have two scarts use the front panel jacks to connect the DVR player.
The only time you won't be able to record a program is if somekind of anti-copy system is employed.

Timed recording with cable (new)


If you're referring to programming your VCR for recording, that works just like it did before the cable box was installed, but with two major differences.

The first difference is that the VCR must always be programmed to record on the converter box output channel. Usually this is channel 3, but may also be channel 4. The cable box selects the channel from the cable system, but it's always outputting to your TV on the same channel. That channel is what the VCR needs to record from.

The second change to programmed recording is that you can't program your VCR to record programs on different channels. The reason is because, as mentioned above, the VCR is actually recording from the cable box which is always on the same output channel. Unless you are home to change the channel on the box, you're stuck. For example, if you want to record a show at 10PM on channel 8 and another at 11 on channel 26, those are the cable channel numbers. The box output is channel 3 (or 4) in both cases. The VCR can't switch the box for you. It's only going to record the program on the channel you selected before you left home. You also need to leave the cable box turned on, but the TV can be off. This is probably the thing most people find confusing about dealing with a cable box.

Now having said all that, some brands of cable box do include a timer feature of their own that allows you to program the box to switch channels. This feature is used in conjunction with timer recording on the VCR. You still always program the VCR to record on channel 3 (4), but now the box can be programmed as well to switch to the channel on the system you want to record. This allows you to get around the limitation described above. If your box offers this feature, it will be accessed through its setup menu using the remote control. Ask your cable company if this is available if it's not clear from the setup menus or instructions the installer left you with.

Right, you don't have to plug DVD/VCR to box, just straight to TV to operate. If you wanted to record hdtv programs from the box to the vcr or a dvd recorder then connect box to vcr/dvd recorder to TV.
