Connecting a VCR and DVD recorder to the TV

I wish to record different channels on the two recorders at the same time and at the same time watch a third channel on the TV. I want to be able to play back both the VCR and DVD recorder recorded programmes on the TV. Need a wiring diagram to do this please.

From what type of source are you doing this? if its CATV with NO BOX, i can help.
Here is a rough sketch:
use COAXIAL cable from splitter to VCR and TV and to the RF Modulator (get one at radio shack) from the RF Mod, to DVD, use RCA cables. Run RCA Cable from output DVD to Input on the TV. Run RCA cables from your VCR output to another TV Input

    RF modulator takes coaxial
    signal to RCA. for the DVD use.

    the aerial takes place of the coaxial CATV in that case

Logik recorder - error message - cannot schedule recording, there is already a timer at the same time on this channel. turned the box off at the wall & retuned. Any suggestions? Thank you. x


check programmed recordings you will have a clash possibly in time and date on another channel. If the dvd records two channels at once normally check if it has two channels already set up at the same time to record i the scheduled recordings.
you may have two different channel positions that are the same tv station and have set up two different channels to record the same show. and then you may be trying to record another different channel at the same time. check and delete extra channel schedule.

Another way to have this is as an example say programmed record at channel nine f0r show 1 at 7:30 to 8.35 day xyz and then you set up show 2 to record at channel nine say from 8:30 to 9.35.day xyz this will use two time frames during the overlap from 8:30 to 8:35 on day xyz and if you decide to record a third show you can't between the overlap time frame

Does the JVC DR-MV5S DVD recorder/VCR combo unit have an analog tuner or digital tuner, so that you can record one channel while watching a different channel on your TV?


You can read what JVC is telling about the recorder. It is not an digital tuner, but still you can record a DVD and watch another channel or vice versa.

Why does my R15-100 DVR Plus not record 2 programs at same time. What can I do to fix it?


When we had the R15 (we have since upgraded) we could record two channels at once with no trouble. You have to have two satellite connections in the back (since it uses a separate tuner for each channel) and you cannot watch a third channel while recording two others - if you're going to watch, you have to watch one of the two shows you're recording.

Hr836t how do i watch different channel to one recording


This unit has only one tuner, meaning you can only watch or record one thing at a time. Depending on your TV and how your equipment is installed, you may be able to split your antenna/ cable line and record on your DVD and use your TV tuner to watch another program.

Connecting TV to DVD / VCR Recorder


Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

I am assuming that what you intend to do is:
  • record a TV channel/program/show either on VCR or DVD;
  • while at the same time watching another TV channel/program/show directly on the TV.
Yes, but only if you are not using/needing a cable decoder box. To do this, the coaxial cable from your provider would have to be made to supply both the RF/ANT/CABLE IN of the VCR/DVD and the TV. To accomplish this, you would need a 2-way splitter. One input to the splitter, 2 outputs, one each for the DVD/VCR and the TV. The DVD/VCR would have to be connected to the TV using yellow, white & red RCA cables. To watch DVD, VCR and/or what is being recorded on the DVD/VCR, set the TV to Video mode. To watch regular TV, select the channels on the TV.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful wouldbe detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address yourconcern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate it at all. Cheers.

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!

Record a digital channel while watching and analog channel


Take a red, white, and yellow AV cable and plug it from the AV out of the cable box to the red, white, and yellow In of the dvd recorder (change cable box to the channel you want to record). Then change your TV to the channel you want to view.

I cannot get my DVR4300 to go in to TV channel change mode while recording a program


Why not simply record a channel tuned into the vcr and use your tv remote to watch a channel tuned into your tv? that is how it is normaly done... don't forget a vcr/pvr/dvd recorder has it's own channels just like a tv does... just no screen of it's own the tv has of course it's own channels and in fact does not even need to be switched on in order for your recorder to record a program neither does the recorder need to be on to use your tv
