VCR HOOKUP PROBLEM

I can get the converter to work thru the tv, but we have been using our vcr thru the home stereo for surround sound. Everytime I turn on the VCR it  goes to analog and cannot get a digital signal. We also were getting 6 chanels before and only 4 now and 1 is different so we only get 3 of our original channels. We no longer have NBC or ABC.

    I have it hooked up this way. The tv works ok if I use the tv speakers and don't turn on the vcr. If I want surround sound, and turn on my vcr the converter does not work and  have to go to analog bypass mode to get good analog reception and surround sound.

The hook up should be antenna then converter box then vcr then tv. We will need more info if this doesn't solve the problem. Hope this helps. Remember, if your converter box doesn't have an analog pass thru, it will block your analog channels.

You will need to hook your signal to the converter box then into your vcr and then into your TV. Now if your vcr has signal out then you will not have any problems hooking your tv up to the vcr. You may have to use the audio out to get the right sound with your tv.

Coaxial hookup broke off. Can i use an s cable through vcr? need instructions.


If your Sharp television has RCA jacks, you may use them through your VCR. Your VCR would have to have a tuner and then you may use this as a means for getting a signal. Newer VCRs and DVD players generally do not have a tuner. Thanks for asking!

HOOKUP A MAGNAVOX DVD/VCR PLAYER TO TV AND DISHNET WORK CA


may be your tv systems don't have an accessory for audio video input. but you can hookup that by using an RF modulator adapter, this is a converter from audio / video to RF signal and connected directly to your antenna connection. you can purchase that RF modulator adapter to an electronics store.

I have an RCA converter box hooked up to an RCA TV and a Sanyo VCR. The TV and VCR are set on Channel 3. The converter box is set on Channel 4 and the TV is also switched to CH 4 when viewing digital...


Basically, you cannot use the coax connections for both the VCR and the RCA converter box. I would hook up the phono/cinch connectors from the VCR to the TV if you can (these are also called RCA connectors, but I'm avoiding using that name so we dont confuse the digital receiver with a cable/connector name that is the same here). There should be a yellow one for video and red/white ones for left and right stereo. I believe the RCA converter comes with a three headed cable that can do this for you. With this configuration, you can set the TV to input on these connectors and the VCR should always output there. Once that is set, you can still use the converter box to receive the signal from your antenna, then run the coax to the VCR. Now, the VCR will always have to be set on channel 4 in your setup and you will need to manually change channels on the converter box for it to record a show. Does this make sense so far?

To Connect AV Cable from Panasonic VCR to Sony 29 inches


You can either connect the antenna output of the VCR to TV ant in or hookup the audio/video outputs from VCR to audio/video TV inputs. If using the antenna output you need to sellect channel 3 or 4 to view VCR. If using the adio/video lines you need to select the line input on TV to view VCR.

Again, I don't know how to find the AV mode.


Madelaine,
I had the same problem just now trying to get my Tivax STB-T8 converter to work the 1st time I tried to set it up. I couldn't see anything on the TV or VCR that indicated what "external AV mode" is or if either unit had it.

The ONLY change I made -- on both the TV & the converter box -- was to switch the "ch 3 or ch 4" from ch 4 to ch 3. (I'd always used my TV & VCR on the ch 4 setting.) Once I did that, I got the menu & was able to proceed w/the next steps & it appears to work.

One caveat: I have yet to figure how the VCR works in all of this. I have it hooked up in the mix, but have yet to attempt to have both the VCR & TV on. (Maybe I don't need to do that anymore -- I may have done that cuz my external antenna was hooked up to the VCR & then the VCR to the TV & that's how i got a decent signal.)

I have no clue as to what the difference is betw ch 3 & ch 4 or if it would solve your seemingly similar problem on your particular TV & converter combination, but it would be worth giving it a shot.

If it works, I'd be interested to hear your feedback.
Fingers crossed -- Jim

Is my Toshiba 27AF42 TV bought in 2002 capable of receiving digital signals? And whether it is or not, how do I integrate my VCR into the TV and my converter box? Right now the TV is hooked up with the...


This is probably way too late an answer, but I just ran across your post. No TV made in 2002 has digital tuning, so you would need the converter box to watch off-the-air digital broadcasts.

To hook up the pieces, take the converter box output and run it to the VCR antenna input jack. Then run the output from the VCR to the TV's antenna input. Leave the VCR and TV both on channel 3 (or channel 4 if that's what you have the converter box output set for).

To watch TV, leave the VCR off and the signal from the converter will pass right through to the TV. You'll do your channel changing with the converter box, so the TV stays on channel 3. To record a program, just remember that the VCR will always need to be tuned to channel 3 (4), since it will have to be on the converter box output channel. Again, you pick the actual TV channel with the converter.

Note that this arrangement will allow you to program your VCR to record while you are out, but there are some limitations. You can't record things on different channels, since you won't be home to switch channels on the converter. The VCR is always recording on channel 3 (4), and the program you'll be recording is whatever channel the box is set for. If another program comes on on a different channel later, you won't be around to switch. But you could program different recording times on the same channel, anyway. You also can't record one program while watching a different channel, unless you had a second converter box.

Hope you can still use the information provided here. If this has been helpful, please take a moment to rate this a fixya. Thanks for asking here!

Connecting my tv and vcr so i can use the vcr remote control


You can always push "03" on a universal remote programmed to work your TV. A better solution is to connect the devices properly. You shouldn't use the tuner inputs for a VCR/DVD player, or you will get a poorer picture and no stereo sound. See the instruction manual for your player and TV. Use a stereo audio/video cable to connect them and select the proper input. The instructions will hopefully clarify this.
