Question about Philips Magnavox MWR20V6 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Can't hear sound on Windows Mediaplayer from DVD I recorded

I used a Magnavox VCR/DVD recorder to copy an old VCR movie to a dvd. (I returned the recorder and no longer have it or the model number). I can play the dvd on my dvd player and it works fine. Now I want to play it on my computer and edit it, but I have no sound. The video is great, but no audio. I'm using Windows media player (aded K-Lite Codec decoder). Please help. My computer friend doesn't know what to do.

I've been pondering this one for a day or so - at least two possibilities:
1) There is a mute/audio-off hotbutton inside Windows Media Player itself - click on it and see if the audio works. Alternatively, you can try playing a music file in Windows Media Player to see if THAT file has sound.
2) You need a better Codec - the free version of the K-Lite Codec has limited audio support. There are no easy answers to this problem. I frequently use my computer for converting VHS's to DVD, so I finally plunked down the $50 to purchase Nero 9 and all of its codecs. Before that, however, I used VLC Media Player (free) - it has DVD/VOB audio support.

As a side note, if you wanted to use your computer to convert the VHS's to DVD, you would need a plain-old VCR, a red/white/yellow cable, a DVD burner, and a product called the Dazzle DVD Recorder from Pinnacle. You can hook the VCR straight to your computer and burn away. To get the best experience however, I would also get a program like Nero, Roxio, etc. to do the actual DVD burning (although the Dazzle's native software is perfectly capable of doing the job).

Good luck!

I have Magnavox DVD player/vcr DV225MG9, does it record from vhs onto dvds? And if not, what do I need to get so that I can copy all of these old vhs movies to dvds?


it won't record dvd's its only a dvd player. only the vcr records
if the vhs movies your trying to record are movies like star wars and stuff like that it's copy protected and no worth the trouble. if it's home movies or something you recorded from tv they might work. if you get a dvd recorder/vhs player.

Recorder will not dub


What are you trying to dub, a movie on original dvd or something you recorded from tv. Some cable systems send an anti-copy signal with pay movie channels and can be almost impossible to copy. There are ways but no easy unless you are experienced. Same with purchased movies on DVD. See DVDfab program for ways to do that.

I would like to know if it is possible to copy two vhs movies onto one dvd disk.


Yes, this should be possible, as long as the VHS movies are not copyright protected. Just make sure that the recording mode on the dvd is set to allow enough time for both movies. Just remember: the more you record onto a single disc, the quality of the dubbing (recording of VHS to DVD) is decreased.

I just bought a Magnavox ZV450MW8A DVD/VCR Recorder. It has recording capabilities on both the DVD and VCR components but can you tell me if I can use it to record FROM the VCR directly onto the DVD? This...


Yes, you can, I have this unit and have actually copied a dvd to a vhs and then copied back to a dvd as I wanted a dvd copy to give a friend. The directions in the book are really quite simple. They tell you how to set the vhs to the spot where you want to start copying, etc.

I have not yet tried copying my family vhs tapes, but don't see a problem, just a big project. Good luck.

Recording dvd's


As long as the tapes do not have a copy gaurd on them they should record to the dvd. Home moves, tv shows that were recorded or unprotected tapes can also be dubbed.

DVD recorded discs (from VHS) do not play on other dvd players


I called the manufacturer. They admitted to improper instructions. They provided me a fix to their copying protocol and it worked. Also, they game me instructions on how to fix already copied tapes. It works well and I would have to say I was impressed with their customer/technical service.

HOW DO I RECORD A DVD TO A VHS ON A VHS DVD COMBO BY PHILIPS


Cannot do this on a combo unit. There is a chip that senses copy protection and prevents recording a copy-protected DVD to a VHS and vice-versa. Solution: Use an outboard DVD player or an outboard VHS VCR and try the recording with the video routed through a "stabilizer" box. The stabilizer (about $30 or less on Ebay) defeats the copy protection on MOST DVDs, but not all. It works with Netflix DVDs. Route the audio as usual. Audio is not protected.

HELP! I can't figure out how to Connect my Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo to my older TV


Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.
