    TV is a Toshiba Model 27A44, VCR/DVD Combo is a Magnavox

    GDV228MG9. I am currently using Yellow, White and Orange Cables and also have a satellite box. I hope you get this and can help me. I think I am sending the response back to Tha Mp3 Doctor who said to give the model numbers

There are several Philips and Magnavox DVD/VCR combos that have sepearate video connectors for the DVD and VCR side. Double-check the yellow composite cable that is plugged into the back of your Magnavox - it should be plugged into an area that says either "DVD/VCR" or "VCR". If you are currently using red, green, and blue video cables, you will need to add a second video cable - a yellow composite would be easiest. The reason for this change is that red/green/blue cables will only operate the DVD side on most Philips/Magnavox players - that is just the way they decided to design them. If you happen to find a model number listed on the back of your combo unit, and have the model number of your television, I can take a second look at it, and tell you exactly which connections to make. Good luck!

    OK. Perfect. Run the yellow/orange/white cable from the column marked DVD/VCR on the back of the Magnavox to the column marked IN / Video 1 on the back of the TV. Change your television channel to Video 1 by pressing the TV/VCR button on the Toshiba remote. You will then get video and sound on both the VCR and DVD sides.



    If your satellite box is plugged into Video 2, you will have to use the TV/VCR on the Toshiba remote to switch back to Satellite. If your satellite is connected to the TV by coaxial, you will have to press either Ch. 3 or Ch.4 on the Toshiba remote to get your Satellite back.



    BTW, an electronic copy of the Magnavox manual is available at the Funai USA website (Funai jointly manufactured your particular model).



    Good luck!

My vcr tapes play too fast


If I remember correctly, VCR players had three speed settings. SP-short play, LP-Long play, and SLP- Super long play. The vcr is supposed to be able to tell what speed the tape was recorded at, thus playing it back at the correct speed. If your unit has lost the ability to sense the speed the tape was recorded then you will have to set the speed manually, if possible. Other than that I would have to say it's time to get a new vcr.

Tv/digital converter box & vcr-dvd hook-up


I have a vhs and dvd player all in one
I have a converter box hooked up to my tv and vcr , dvd player combined
I can play my movies on the tv. ok.
you have to have your tv and vcr set on channel 3. if that is what your main tv is set up with. Or 4 if you have your tv set up with that.
Mine plays ok. My settings are for channel 3
My suggestion would be to check your hook ups. maybe they are not hooked up correctly
I had to go to www.google.com and did searches to help with hook up.
I can also record station I am watching with vcr on vsh tapes. I do not have a dvd recorder.
I found out that you have to have 2 converter boxes hooked to one tv., in order to record on on station while watching another. I have not tried that, as I don't have 2 converter boxes for one tv. I found that by doing google search also. Good Luck

DRC 8335 Playing Back VCR Recordings in a Fast Forward State


I bought mine yesterday and am having the same issues. No solution listed in the user manual to fix this and I have a rather extensive VHS tape library that I was hoping to move to DVD using this unit. Unable to watch any VHS tapes taped on my Panasonic VCR and it seems as if the tape is slipping. Tracking buttons don't fix anything. I found a blank spot at the end of the tape and taped something and it comes out fine. Could this have something to do with it being a 6 head VCR? Tapes are in SLP mode.

How to set up to copying a video tape.


This is a snap, as long as you have a second VCR if not you can't do it.

1. Hook the out put line(s) from VCR1 to the input line(s) on VCR2.
2. Put recorded tape into VCR1 and press play.
3. Set VCR2 to the channel that VCR1 is playing on, it's usually 3 or 4.
4. rewind the recorded tape and put the blank into VCR2.
5. Press record on VCR 2 and play on VCR1.
if you want an exact copy stop here. . . or
6. pause VCR2 when ever something comes up you don't want to record, ie a commercial if you'r re-recording a movie from TV. be for warned though each time you re-record an analog recording, like a VHS tape, the audio and vido tracks get further and further apart. After about the second or third time you re-record a tape you'll hear something before you see it, or vice-versa. I hope this helps you out.

Recording Snow


If you hook your VCR up to the RCA jacks on the front of the DVD recorder, push 002 on the remote to use the front input jacks. (001 if you hook your VCR up to the rear input jacks)

Push record on the DVD recorder, and push Play on the VCR.
(Pg. 35 in the manual)

When you push play on the VCR, you should be able to see the movie being played on your TV. If you cannot, make sure your RCA cables are good and hooked up correctly.

That's all you have to do, so if it's not recording I would try to take the unit back for an exchange.
