Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player
I've just hooked up my mother-in-laws analog tv, converter box and new magnavox dvd/vcr combo and it will not record from tv. Can watch previous recorded tapes. Is there another way that I need to hook this up? It will not let me bring the tv stations through the vcr. I have it on channel 3 on the converter. When I go to channel 3 on tv and leave the station channel I get a blue screen. The record light comes on the vcr but nothing on screen to tell me its recording. Can't get a menu either or set up information to appear on screen. This magnavox won't work with old rabbit ears either. No place for screw on conax cable. HELP Please!
Check out this diagram, paying close attention to the audio video cable hookups.
assume the cable tv box represents the converter box
you are going to come out of the converter box audio and video outputs into the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo audio and video inputs.
Then out of the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo outputs to the inputs on the tv if it has such inputs. The TV will have to operate on the video input 1 or 2 if the tv has such a thing, use the remote for the tv to adjust the input signal to line in 1 or 2 depending on what it has.
If the tv has no coaxial input or audio video inputs then you might have to use an adapter, you can get these from radio shack.
You say it will not record from the tv, but in all actuality the dvd vcr combo is getting the signal from the converter box not the tv, do you understand what I mean here?
So the dvd vcr combo gets input from the converter box so you will have to set it to view signal from the line input you have plugged in from the converter box. line 1 or 2 or whatever the input is.
the tv will have to be set on the line input to view the signal from the dvd vcr combo.
That is as easy as I can put it. Study the diagram closely. You will see what I mean.

In response to elizabeth4th's questions:
To connect a cable box to the DV220MW9 the cable box must have a composite video output (red+white for audio and yellow for video). The Magnavox only supports one audio input so you would use the white (i.e. left) cable plus the yellow video output from the cable box. A smarter alternative would be to use a Y audio adapter so that you can merge the left and right audio channels for input into the recorder. You should keep the RF/coax connection between the cable box and the TV, thus allowing you to watch cable programs independent of the DVD/VCR player.
The DV220MW9 has three ways you can hook it up to a TV for playback. Two of the three (the S-Video and the component video) only support the DVD player. The third (a composite video output) can be used for playback of either the DVD player or the VCR. If your TV has enough inputs you can hook up two of the three outputs for maximum flexibility. Using the component video or S-Video to play DVD's will give the best quality picture. All TV's have a way of selecting which input option will be used for picture display. Check the owners manual if you don't know how to make this selection.

Does the cable that is coming out of the wall get hooked up to the back Magnavox DV220MW9 with an coaxial adapter?
I hooked up the DVD/VCR it played DVD's on channel 90 and for the VCR I got the movie to play but could only hear the sounds...i could not find the picture on any channel.
