|DVD| -> |VCR| -> |TV|

1. Connect your VCR to your TV. (Using Antena cable or RCA cables.)

2. From your DVD player, choose the AUDIO VIDEO OUT. Then, connect that to your VCR's LINE IN jacks.

(*)Your DVD player has 3 jacks coming out. Yellow-video, White- Audio Left and Red- Audio Right.
If you VCR does not have the RED jack. Go to a radio shack and tell on of the sales person taht you need to connect 2 RCA audio outs to 1 RCA audio in. (He/ She will give you a "2RCA Male to 1RCA Female" splitter)

3. Finally, play your DVD, put your VCR channel in TV and most important select the LINE channel in your VCR. (This channal may called as L1, Line,... etc)

You should be seeing the DVD in your TV now.

If you want to play the VCR, just put the casset and play.

Important- The VCR needs to be powered on in order to the DVD signals to go to the TV.

Cheers!!!!

Can I record a dvd on a dvd recorder from a vhs tape on another vcr? I had a dual dvd recorder but the vcr part is broken


Should be able to. Are you sure you are using a recordable dvd? Also, are you sure you put it in the recorder side?

Just hooked up my new Magnavox DV220MW9 DVD Player ? VCR Recorder. I was able to set the time and a vcr timer program but now I can't switch the source. It now comes on as the DVD but neither the remote...


You need to release the timer to access the VCR. Press the Timer Set button on the remote or the Stop/Eject button on the recorder. Then press the VCR button.

Please note: the scheduled recording will not run as programmed unless you press the Timer Set on the remote again. (The timer locks the VCR until the scheduled ON time.) The DVD player is controlled separately and becomes the default unit.

I hope this helps.

I have an older TV with only an antenna hook-up, a VCR, a DVD recorder and a converter box that I would like to hook all together. I can get the VCR to work, but don't really know how to hook the DVD...


Try this. You will need 2 RF cables and a RCA cable that has a red, black, and yellow plug on each end.
  1. Plug the antenna signal into the converter box.
  2. Connect the RF output (TV out) of the converter box to the RF input on the VCR
  3. Connect the RF output (TV out) on the VCR to the TV
  4. Finally, plug the DVD recorder into the converter box also, but use the 3 RCA cables that came with it (audio left, right and video).

I have a vcr/dvd hooked up to my present tv with a antanna. How do i hook up the digital converter. so thatI still could use vcr. Thank You


It depends on brand of converter. In Radioshack they have one with AV-in ports (for $56 (-$40 coupon = $16). So TV signal going trough antenna and DVD/VCR going trough AV-in of converter to the same antenna of TV. Or you will have to hook up the CONVERTER - ANTENNA IN VCR/DVD - Antenna OUT VCR/DVD - ANTENNA IN TV. And you will use the remote of converter to switch the channels.
Good Luck

I ahve a hdtv and a vcr how do I connect all three together and a diagram,please, Thanks joe


i dont know how to make a diagram but i will give the best instructions
make sure you follow these instructions so you will take advantage of your tv best possible picture if you hook it up some other way you will not get that great a picture
sat cable
coax from wall to box-use a hdmi cable only no other cable its pure digital connect to the out section on box and in section on tv
dvd
if dvd has hdmi out from dvd to in on tv the same as step one if dvd does not have hdmi then you will use commponent cables red green blue for picture and red and white for audio out from dvd to in on tv
vcr
since you cant record hd on vcr you will just hook it up with yellow red and white (composite cables)out from vcr to in on tv.
if done any other way it may work but not digital and not best picture available to you

I hooked up my portable dvd player to a vcr so i can watch tv on my dvd player and i can't see the picturebut i can hear the sound...


first off have you tried hooking something you know works up to the vcr and seeing if it works??

if you have and it does work then try hooking to portable up to a tv.
if it still doesnt work then its the player.
if it works on the tv then you have to assume its a copyright protection to keep you from recording dvds.

now if it doesnt work on the tv possible solution could be to make sure the cable is connected firmly, or replace it all together. you might also want to check to see if there is a switch to select the video output.
