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.

Have Technics SA-EX500 connected to Samsung Smart TV. For tv channels the sound is perfect but when I switch to Netflix or HBOGO the sound is static/cackling.


Suggest connecting via the headphones jack or if available the RCA audio output jacks. If you connect via the headphone jack you will need to adjust the TV volume to a lower setting to avoid distortion/./ The The problem is that the optical output connection is a digital connection and depending on the digital format the Digital to Analog converter may not be a configuration that the audio stream to the stereo required for the tv/vcr in.

How does the audio sound using the Samsung Smart TV internal speakers>

Also under menus/audio/settings you may need to change the Optical output to stereo.

Netflix also has settings that will change the audio stream.

Hope This helps?

Getting my VCR to record from the TV with a converter box hookup


Hook up antenna to converter box then from that out to the vcr's input (red,white, yellow connections are better than coaxial).

Want to continue to record on my VCR after digital hookup


You have to use the RCA plugs on the back of the converter box and the tv (red,yellow and white). Or you can attach the antenna wire to box and then attach the wire that comes with the converter that is listed as to the tv and instead attach it to the antenna in on the vcr. The converter box will determine which channel your vcr will get a singal to record from. Your VCR for every program will be set to channel 3 or 4 (depending on what your converter box is set to broadcast on). Make sure the power saver on the converter box is turned off as if you want to record a program in say 4 hours, if the converter box turns off in 2, your vcr will have nothing to record.

I ran seperate coaxible cable to the tv from vcr and unplug the tv converter box everytime I want to watch the vcr. You can also use the RCA cord to send the signal from the vcr to the tv and use the input signal to watch your recorded programs. I had static showing up everytime I played it through the second converter box thus I solved it by running a seperate coax line. I don't know if you will have this problem, just wanted you to be aware.

Only works when playing a DVD.


This is an easy and quick fix.

What you will need:

RCA cables (audio)
( possibly Line out converter )

Your television is either going to need Video Out, or if you have a VCR or VCR/DVD combo connected to your television. Assuming that you have a VCR combo, the way your tv should be set up is on the back of the vcr combo, your cable will run into the coaxial IN and then you have another cable running from Coaxial OUT to your tv. If you have it set up like this, then the DVD / VCR combo will have RCA Audio / video out ports on the back side. Run RCA cables from the DVD / VCR output to the surround sound INPUT. If you already have your inputs in use on the surround sound, Radioshack has RCA splitters for about $1.50 each, you might need to pick some of them up so you dont have to go through the trouble of reaching behind it all the time to disconnect and reconnect whatever your trying to connect. Now if you dont have the DVD / VCR combo, then your TV "MUST" have RCA Outputs. if it doesnt, then the only way that your going to have your surround sound connected to your tv is to take the TV apart and get a RCA "Line output converter" and wire it to the left / right channels of your tv. From what I've read, i think this is what your trying to do so I hope this helps
