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.

    I assume that CATV is referring to cable TV??? I am in New Zealand and the signal feed is from a normal UHF roof aerial. Can't understand re the RF modulator????

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

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.

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.

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.

Have fun!

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

Unable to record one tv channel while watching another tv channel


You CAN record one channel and watch another with satellite service, but it would require two separate DBS receivers. The issue is that all satellite broadcasting is encrypted until it hits the receiver, which decodes it and transmits it outward toward your other AV devices. If it weren't for the receiver, connecting the coax cable to your other devices and trying to tune channels with them would yield no signal and possibly much frustration. You would need to split the signal into each receiver and have one connected to the television via one input and the other to the recorder then to the TV via another input.

With cable, you can split the signal without having to have two boxes - this way the QAM tuner in the cable box is still capable of tuning channels while the recorder can tuner basic cable channels for recording separately. You can also have the cable box connected to the recorder via composite so that you can record premium stations on a DVD recorder input mode anytime you like - but you would have to be watching that channel at the same time unless the DVD recorder had a pass-through RF signal (rather than a composite clone) - meaning you could also use coaxial to your television from the recorder and tune channels separately on your television while the recorder is recording one channel.

A lot of what-ifs there, but it is all quite possible.

How to record TV program while watching another


how are the cable hooked up? Is there a TV/VCR button because once you start recording, it is at VCR mode, and you need to hit the TV/VCR button to get you back on TV mode,so that you can watch TV.

Watching tv while recording onto vhs or dvd


This could be a couple of problems. I'm not trying to make you feel dumb or anything but sometimes people miss the obvious. Do you have an universal remote? How is your vct wired to your tv? Does your cable go to your vct or your tv first? These sound like silly questions but they are important.
