Using FIOS HD DRV STB with a VCR

I know it is probably pointless asking this, as I have been thinking about this for over a month and am stumped, but maybe someone can help, so here goes.

I recently got FIOS, with an HD DVR. The STB is a Motorola QIP 6416-2. The Coax from the FIOS router goes into the RF in coax connector. Component cables run from the STB to my HDTV, providing picture. Audio (red/white) cables run from the STB to the TV for sound. My VCR and DVD player are hooked into seperate AV imputs (red/white/yellow) on the tv, so that if I change imputs, I can WATCH tapes on the VCR, or DVDs.

However, what I am missing is the opportunity to record onto my VCR movies and shows that I want to KEEP, instead of just recording to the DVR. There is no RF OUT jack on the STB to run to the VCR, and the AV OUT jacks run to the TV for sound, so I cant use a AV cable to run from the video out to the video in on the VCR.

I know this sounds horribly complicated, and I'm probably overexplaining it and confusing everyone, but I'm hoping SOMEONE will have had the same problem and recoment a workaround.

Thank you.

    The STB has a coax, but that runs to the router as well. For the VCR, I have to use A/V cables. Any ideas?

    Actually, sorry, was thinking of a different question. I actually found a workaround for this one, split the video cable off an AV cable, ran the audio part from my to to the AV in on the VCR and the video part from a video out on the STB. Took a while, but it works now. Thanks.

Okay let me make sure I understand.. Looking at the back of your STB and VCR do you see an (IN) and (OUT) coxial connection?

If so, you can use the coxial connections to obtain your desired results.

I hope this solution is helpful. Please remember to rate thsi solution.

I own a Go-Video DVD-VCR Player, Model DV3140. I recently switched to Verizon service and find that I can no longer olay my DVDs/VCRs with the Fios System. Can you assist me in how to program my player...


Hi

You can reprogram it by following these instructions--

Power turns on or off both your STB and TV when you are in STB mode. (If you have a DVR STB, the DVR will continue to record scheduled programs when off.) However, you can reprogram how the Power Key works. If you want the Power Key to control multiple devices at once --

1. Press and hold the STB key.
2. While holding down the STB key, press OK.
3. Release both keys. The Device Keys will blink twice.
4. Press 9 - 7 - 7. The STB key will blink twice.
5. One after the other, press each Device Key you want the Power Key to control, in the order you want them to turn on or off. Each selected device Key will blink twice after it is pressed.
6. Press OK when done. The STB key will blink three times to indicate success in programming.
For example, to program the Power Key to turn on or off your TV, AUX and
STB, in that order with one press of the Power Key, press [STB+OK], [9-7-7],
[TV], [AUX], [STB], [OK].

These are the codes for GO Video DVD Player--

Go Video 0771, 0768, 0810, 0896, 1071, 1102, 1185, 1757

I have hd picture but no sound, tv says hdmi audio unavailable


I called Verizon and exchanged my STB from a QIP 6416 to a QIP 7216 and it solved the HDMI audio problem. This looks like the fix.

VCR to TV


Your FIOS box is typically a Motorola Digital Cable Tuner. In order to record from the VCR your FISO will have control of the tuner, not the vcr. If your FIOS has two video outputs on it for video (av connections), one should be plugged into you tv set and the other should be plugged into the VCR input. Your cable tuner will have to be set for the channel you wish to record ahead of time while the VCR tuner has to be set to record the line input at whatever time you wish to record. If your FISO has one video output line (av connections), your VCR has to be set to channel 3 when you record (provided that is the channel your FISO box is set for when viewing TV over the coax cable) and you will have to attach the coaxial output from the FISO into the coax input of your VCR.

The only way around this is to get a splitter and split the coax line so that the FIOS is connected to the coax as it is now and the VCR is connected to a seperate line using the coax input, however using this configuration will prevent you from recording digital channels. If you have a cable ready VCR, it will probably only recognize channels up to 150.

If you really want to get it to record digital channels without the hassles find out if Verizon has a FISO box with DVR to it or connect a Tivo to your FISO. Tivo will tune the FSIO when it records and it's very user friendly to use.

Zoom Function and Verizon Fios TV


On the verizon FIOS tv box, turn the FIOS STB on, and turn on the tv, tap the following buttons on the Verizon FIOS STB )in this order) 1-Power, then Select, then Menu. This will bring up the FIOS STB HD options. Arrow down to 4:3 Bypass and set the bypass option to 480P. Hit power 2 times, once to turn off, second time to turn STB back on. This should on standard channels give you the zoom feature back. This worked on my Samsunf 5053 TV model.

Verizon FIOS Motorola 6200-2 HD box remote freezes


i'm a verizon employee currently working at a customer's house. just swapped out 3rd 6200 stb, the channels will seemingly change on their own(scrolling) after pressing the remote just a few times. the root of the problem is that the remote is not responding to the stb in the first place properly. all i can figure is that there is some type of ir interference. i've placed the remote 1" from the stb and the same problem exists. it's not the box and the remote is brand new, tried 3 remotes as well. there is something going on in the atmosphere around the box - in or outside the custmer's house. they were on vacation and when they came back this is the trouble they were having. i don't have an answer, just some type of possibilities. there is a power transformer outside on a pole approx. 100' from the house and we had bad storm related issues in the past week. i know it's a stretch, but you never know. could be surround sound/ stereo equipment generating some kind of field??????????? good luck.

HDMI crap out


I got the solution. Contact Customer Service, ask for LEVEL II Tech, and ask them for the old firmware. It will take a lot of pressuring, but they will send it to you and then it will work fine!

Remote code for PV-M1349


The secret is that the VCR code turns the set on/off and the TV code controlls the volume...try this:

Program the Verizon remote AUX button using the panasonic VCR codes until it turns the set on/off, program the remote for TV using the panasonic TV codes until it controls volume, then program the STB button to control all 3... STB, TV, and AUX. If you are missing any VCR or TV funtions try another respective panasonic code until all functions are available.

Panasonic VCR codes are 1089, 0062, 0189, 0252, 0643, 1062.
Panasonic TV codes are 0277, 0078, 0677, 1437.

To figure this out, I had to use the "what if none of the codes worked" section and figured I'd try the VCR codes since the TV codes would not turn it on/off.

Good Luck!
