Hi, In order to watch either DVD or VHS on your TV ,you need to make the following connections ..
You need to connect "DVD Player / VCR Combo" to" TV " as (Audio/video output
of DVD Player / VCR Combo -TO- Audio/Video input of TV) ..
use either "RCA analog (red/white +yellow ) " or "SCART "or
"Optic " cable.(any standard optical cable )...if exist ,optic is the best way to
connect it..Remember your DVD Player / VCR Combo 's "OUT" goes into" IN "of the TV ..
remember,wherever you connect your DVD Player / VCR Combo on your TV ,you should switch
the source selector accordingly to correspond to the connection on the
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know. Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)
Most TVs only have audio out and several audio/video in connections. Unless you have an unusual tv, there is no option for a coax connection from the TV to a recorder.
Since this DVD recorder only has an analog tuner, you need to connect it to a set top box to record signals unless you are looking only at analog channel sources. If you are getting OTA, then a OTA digital-to-analog tuner is needed for most channels. (Only low power stations are still broadcasting in analog.) The cheaper ones that were available with the government coupon were SD tuners. HD content will need a separate tuner. If you have cable or satellite, check the signal (QAM is digital cable).
Next connect the coax from your analog source to the DVD recorder coax in and another coax cable to the coax out and the TVs coax in (if you want to - the pass through doesn't work with a set-top box for non-analog signals). Set the channel to the appropriate one (3 or 4 for the OTA d-t-a boxes; desired channel to watch for analog OTA or cable). Set the TV to channel 2, 3 or 4. Alternatively, use composite A/V cables from the set top box to the A/V Input of the DVD recorder and set the recording channel to Input 1.
Next connect A/V cables (composite or S-video) to the recorder's matching out to the TV A/V or S-video In. Set the TV to A/V 1 or Video 1 depending on the Emerson TV. You can watch tapes or DVDs. For better video quality on DVD playback, also connect component video cables from the DVD recorder Out to the TV's component in (if it is available). Then set the TV to the appropriate component video input when watching DVDs.
Unfortunately, size limitation of what could be attached prevents posting a connection diagram. Still, proposed connection scheme:
4250HDC's HDMI to Panasonic's HDMI 1 or 2;
4250HDC's VIDEO OUT to GoVideo's LINE IN 1 VIDEO;
4250HDC's AUDIO OUT to 2 pcs of RCA Splitters (shown below);
1 pair from the 2 splitters to GoVideo's LINE IN 1 R-AUDIO-L;
the other pair to Yamaha's LD/TV L & R;
GoVideo's LINE OUT VIDEO to Panasonic's VIDEO IN 1 VIDEO;
GoVideo's LINE OUT R-AUDIO-L to 2 more RCA Splitters;
1 pair from the 2 splitters to Panasonic's VIDEO IN 1 L-AUDIO-R;
the other pair to Yamaha's VCR 1 IN L & R;
to watch cable TV in HD quality, set Panasonic to HDMI 1 or 2 by pressing Panasonic remote's INPUT button, then 3 (or 4), then OK;
to hear cable TV programs on Yamaha's speakers, set Yamaha to LD/TV;
to watch DVD or VHS, set Panasonic to Video 1 by pressing Panasonic remote's INPUT button, then 6, then OK;
to hear DVD or VHS on Yamaha's speakers, set Yamaha to VCR 1;
to record cable TV programs, press GoVideo remote's TV VIEW button a couple of times to cycle through the signal sources or until Line 1 is displayed.
The use of the splitter shown below would effectively double the AUDIO OUT of the cable box and the DVD/VCR combo to feed both the TV and the stereo. Additionally, this would allow use of the cable box and/or the DVD/VCR combo with or without the Yamaha.
The CD/DVD player has three output ports: (i) Line out Video used to connect the yellow pin of composite cable. (ii) S-video out use d to connect an S-video cable. (iii) Component video out (red, blue, green) used to connect a component video cable.
So, in order to connect the CD/DVD player to the TV, the TV should have either of the corresponding input port on it.
However, the video quality transmitted by component video cable will be the best among the three.
So, you may connect the TV and the CD/DVD player using an appropriate cable.
All the above connections require an additional audio cable to transmit audio from the CD/DVD player to the TV. In this case, you may use an RCA (red and white) audio cable to connect the "R and L" audio out port on the CD/DVD player to the corresponding "R and L" audio in port on the TV.
Performing all the above steps will help you get the DVD player work with the TV.
The way I have it set up - cable box out to AKAI cable in, video and audio out of AKAI into TV via RCA. AKAI on channel 3, tv on RCA input. Change channels on Cable box, works fine. To watch a video, just put it in an hit play. Might have to change sources on AKAI if this is not working for u.
You need to decide which set of inputs or outputs you want to use.
To record, and watch what you have recorded on your TV, you will need TWO sets of audio/visual patch cords. One for recording and the other for playing.
Let's start with the recording.
Look for the Line in or video in plugs on your DVD-VCR unit. Some recorders have separate inputs for the VCR and DVD. Others let you select with the remote. Usually Line 1 is at the back and Line 2 is on the front. Your remote will have "recording source" to let you select, or sometimes you can use the channel up and down arrows to select your input source. Your remote will also allow you to select either the DVD or VCR for recording.
Connect the Yellow plug to the Video In socket, and the red and white plugs to audio in., Connect the other end of the cord to the TV or cable box. Yellow goes to Video Out, red and white go to audio out.
Recording from the cable box is much easier because you wiull always have a signal going into the DVD-VCR recorder no matter what happens at the TV.
Now look for the Video out connection on the DVD-VCR recorder. Connect the Yellow plug to video out and the red and white plugs to audio out. Ignore the other connections at this point. They are for RGB component video. Your DVD -VCR should have one output for both functions. Use that one.
Now connect that cord to a Video one or Video 2 input on your TV.
Test the set-up. Play a DVD or a VHS tape and try to bring it in using the TV remote.
Then turn on a program and try to record it on the DVD-VCR, then play it back.
This sounds very complicated, but all that's involved are two patch cords with three plugs on each end - 12 connections in all and color-coded.
YELLOW is always video.
> jfthr - Tv convertor boxes transfer digital signals into ANALOG. So when it goes to the dvd recorder it IS ANALOG. I have my antenna hooked to my convertor box, the converter hooked up to the ILO (A/V connections) then, the output on the ILO to the input of my analog tv. (Video selection on my tv). It works great to watch tv and/or record. I switch to the "DVD SOURCE" to watch dvds. Maybe you have the conv box hooked to the tv then the outs on the tv to the dvd. That would explain why you can get a picture but not watch dvd? The ILO has to go between the box and the tv in order to watch dvd.
You can watch the TV programs with the tuner of the unit. (Usually channel 3 or 4 of the TV is available for the RF converter setting.) Be sure to connect the unit to a TV using the RF cable. 1 Select channel 3 on your TV. 2 Press [VIDEO/TV] on the remote control. • If noise appears, change the RF output channel of the unit to CH 4 by pressing [VIDEO/TV] for 3 seconds. The RF output channel will alternate between CH3 and CH4
