I have dish network and would like to hook up my vcr/dvd to my plasma 42" panasonic tv and be able to tape from the satelitte. Right now, I can hook up vcr/dvd to tv and view tapes or dvd's, but can not view tv and tape from satelitte. TV model TH42PX504.
Re: How to hookup vcr to TV to tape from satelitte
If your monitor has a video input with looping outputs, then you could take the looping output of the satellite receiver and feed it into the input of your VCR/DVR recorder to record whatever channel the satellite receiver is set to.

A vcr will record in a few ways.It will record ifwhatever you hook to video and audio in on the rear of it.Or if you feed your cable or dish through it via the coaxial input it will record whatever is on the tv screen by this method.
We would be happy to help you with getting your DISH Networkremote to control your Panasonic TV. We're going to start by pressing andholding the TV button located on the top of your remote until all mode buttonback lights come on, and then release. Use the number buttons to enter thecodes for your Panasonic TV; here some of the codes we currently have:512, 876, 780, 765, 689, and 819. Press the pound (#) button. To check that thecode works try several different functions on the remote to make sure it willproperly operate the TV. Remember that some codes may not be compatible withyour equipment. If this is the case, try the other codes listed for that deviceuntil you find one that is compatible with your equipment.
We hope this helps and thank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!

samsung 42" plasma hooked up to LG vcr/dvd combo and foxtel IQ box. all working but only by plugging vcr cable into video camera sockets on side of plasma tv?? reason only place with a yellow plug socket? on rear of tv colours are only red,green.blue? and white. nothing for the yellow can you give any advice on correct hookup proccedure please.
Since your TV only has audio and video input jacks, you can connect those to audio and video output jacks on the VCR. Now connect the coax cable to the RF/ant input on the VCR and you'll have to change channels by using the VCR channel selector.
Let me know if you require further assistance.
"I would like to be able to record from the satelitte."
Are you trying to record your satellite programming onto a DVD recorder? If so, the recorder needs to be connected between the satellite receiver and the TV. If this is still a problem please indicate the recorders make and model number.
The VCR needs to be connected between your Satellite box and your TV. If you can specify the all of the components in your system and how you currently have them connected I can easily help you with the proper wiring strategy.
Try hooking up the AV cables, unless it's an older model(1993-1998) then you might require a coaxial cable. After this you simply plug it into the wall outlet, but I would suggest a surge protector for a Hitachi. If that does not work, then it is simply not compatible, but it should work, good luck
Unhook the dvd cables from the AV1 ports on the tv. Then hook these DVD outputs to the inputs on the vcr. Then hook the vcr outputs to the tv inputs (AV1). The tv and the vcr must then be set to channel 3 in order to watch the dvd (and possibly also some menu settings such as setting everything to "component video" and/or setting the tv/vcr button to "vcr. Also set all "3 or 4" switches on the back of all equipment to channel 3. Also, don't forget to go into your tv menu and choose AV1 when you want to watch the dvd and/or the vcr.
You can also try connecting your dish to the vcr and then the vcr to the input on the tv where you HAD the dish connected. There are several combinations you can try, but just remember to always put output cables to the INPUTS of the next piece of equipment in line, and set your menu settings appropriately on all equipment whenever you change from one machine to the next.
If all this fails, then here is a 100% positive solution. Buy an "A/B" switch. It has two inputs and only one output. You could leave the dvd connected as is and connect the dish and the vcr to the two inputs on the A/B switch. Then hook the one output of the A/B switch to the tv. When you change the position of the A/B switch back and forth, you will be changing over back and forth from dvd to vcr. You can move the A/B input selection switch manually or you can buy a remote controlled A/B switch and do your switching with the remote that comes with the switch.
