Easy. Connect RCA lead from video/audio OUT on the VCR to video/audio IN on the DVD recorder. Set DVD recorder source to VIDEO then press play on the VCR and record on the DVD recorder.

Re: dubbing vhs to dvd

I don't know if they are still available but about 7 years ago my boss was able to buy a "horizontal stabilization" box which smoothed out the horizontal synch "blip" introduced in copy protected tapes.

Re: dubbing vhs to dvd

I think you will find you can copy your own vhs to dvd or dvd to vhs but most commercial tapes and dvd's have a code that stops them being copied.

Re: dubbing vhs to dvd

It has nothing to do with a code. Its called Macrovision and it is in the tape. Get a video stabilized which will block the code and ur good to go.

Re: dubbing vhs to dvd

Most commercial tapes have anti-copying feature imbedded in the signal. Often this is a kind of "burp" in the horizontal synch signal. I don't know if they are still available but a few years ago my boss obtained a "horizontal stabilization" box that did the trick for most tapes. We actually used it for legitimate image stabilization when using tapes with older video projectors. It cost (about 7 years ago) around $40.00 and was purchased at a little electronics parts store.

Re: dubbing vhs to dvd

All you have to do to have a copy righted vhs transfer to dvd is to buy a video stabilzer which takes the macro from the video so it can copy then attack to dvd recorder from line one or two through the video stablizer and suddely copy protected tapes copy just fine I wante d to copy lucky vanous work out but it was copy protected and my machine won't do it unless I hook it up the way I told you.

copy protected vhs can be coppied to dvd with a simple little device called a video stablizer and asecond vhs machine connected to line one or two and ta da it works great!

Need manual for toshiba D-vr 610 recorder

For VHS -> DVD dubbing, make sure that you put in a compatible writable DVD with enough space for the video. For dubbing a DVD to VHS, make sure that you have a VHS tape with the erase protection tab on the tape. Insert the blank media in the correct side and the media that you want to record in the other. Press Setup on the remote, then select the General Settings menu. Then select Recording and finally Dubbing. (Use the up/down arrows to navigate the menus and press Enter to select an option.) Select the type of dubbing that you want to do. Press Setup to exit. Then press the DVD or VCR button (with the item to record) and press play and pause when you reach the point that you want to start the recording. Then press the other device button and press the Dubbing button (on the remote or the unit). Press Stop when done recording the selection.

Note: copy-protected videos can't be dubbed.

Crutchfield and Toshiba both have the manual for the DVR-610 . Crutchfield has the manual here: . See page 49 for a set of screen captures of the steps for duplicating a video.

I hope this helps.

How do you record dvd to vhs and from vhs to dvd

For VHS to DVD, put the tape to dub in the VHS slot and a blank DVD in the DVD tray. Make sure the DVD is compatible with the DVD recorder (see the recommended disc list) and is unfinalized if you are using a R/W disc. Close the tray. Set the unit to VCR mode with the DVD/VCR button. Advance the tape to the place that you want the recording to start. Then press the Dubbing button (either on the remote or the unit itself). Select the recording mode (SP, LP etc), highlight Dubbing then press Enter or Dubbing. Press Stop to interrupt the recording.

For DVD to VHS, put a blank tape in the VCR (make sure the protection tab has not been broken off) and the DVD to duplicate in the DVD tray and close the tray. Put the unit in DVD mode by pressing the DVD/VCR button. Find the point at which you want to start recording the DVD. Again press Dubbing and set up the recording mode and highlight Dubbing and press Enter or Dubbing.

Note that copyprotected content can not be recorded.

The manual for this recorder is on the right side of the page here: . See page 48 for the screen captures of setting the recording mode part of the dubbing procedure.

I hope this helps.

Copy from vhs to dvd- want to speed process ???

I'm afraid, VHS tape have to be playback on standard speed for good picture and sound and dvd would also burn accordingly.
Noo way for fast dubbing because VHS tape video is analog signal that changed into digital signal in circuits to write on dvd disc.
I hope you understand how this dubbing works.

I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9. I follow all directions in manual for dubbing VHS home movies to DVD but when I try to play the DVD back there's nothing on them.What am I doing wrong?

Depending on the procedure you may be pressing the record button instead of the D.Dubbing or Dubbing button. When recording from VHS to DVD you must first, load the blank DVD and VHS home movies, then play the VHS movies, then PAUSE the VHS movie when you want to START recording... then the only the you have to do is pressing the D.Dubbing button or the Dubbing button. If your VHS tapes starts to play after the Dubbing button is pressed you have been successful in Dubbing.

VCR DVD Recorder not dubbing

I called the manufacturer and realized I was using the wrong type of recordable DVD disc to dub to. Non copy protected VHS tapes dub just fine as long as I'm using the proper disc.

Recording dvd from vhs

you may not need a remote to dub a vhs tape to dvd.
look on the front of the recorder. see if there is a arrow showing dubbing vhs to dvd/ dvd to vhs. since you do not have the manual, you'll probably have to play around with it a while to figure it out. you will also need to know which format the dvd will record on. [dvd-r,dvd-rw,dvd+r,dvd+rw or ram] you can look up your recorder brand & model # online, then search for a manual you can download.
good luck.
