Hi, Depends on how the PlayStation is connected to the VCR. If it is via RF (single coaxial cable), then either Chs 3 or 4; If it is Audio/Video INput (Yellow, Red & White), then Video 1, Video or A/V. In some models it is Ch 0. Hope this be of help/idea to you. Post back how things turns up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

I have a Panasonic PV-V4525S VCR and I'm trying to program it to work with the Comcast cable. Right now it will only record the same channel that the TV is on and I have to tell the VCR to record channel...

If your using digital cable it will only record channel 3 or 4 depending on what your cable box is set to...In order for it to record different channels it needs a cable source plugged directly into it. You will only be able to record standard cable channels 1-125. If it's digital cable forget about... you can only record it with channel 3/4 a solution to this would be using a 2nd digital box.. "auto-programming" may be limited even with a 2nd cable box. If your only using standard cable 1-125... you can use the TV/VCR button it will switch between the tuner of the TV & VCR allowing you to record while you watch a different show... keep in mind this won't work for digital channels which if I'm not mistaken comcast has already converted all channels to digital even basic.

How do i set up my old playstation 1???


Connect the cables to the ports on the back of the PlayStation console marked "audio out" and "video out." Make sure to match the same-coloucoloured plugs on the cables and the ports - yellow to yellow, red to red, white to white.

Connect the other ends of the audio/video cables to the ports on the back of the television or VCR marked "audio/video input.

Connect the AC power cord to the PlayStation game console and plug it into a wall socket for power.

Turn on the television, VCR (if included in the connection) and PlayStation console.

Press a button on the remote control to access the audio/video inputs for your television or VCR. The button will be labeled "video," "aux," "auxiliary," "tuner" or "line TV/video." You may need to set your television or VCR to channel 00, 90, 91 or 92. If the remote control does not have the buttons described here, check the product's instruction manual.

Sharp VC-A582 I need a little help adjusting the tracking on my VCR, model Sharp VC-A582. I just acquired this unit and did successfully watch one tape for hours, then must have touch a wrong button by...

I couldn't find anything on your VCR either. But from personal experience I know that a lot of manufacturers use the channel up/down buttons on the face of the VCR as tracking controls while a tape is running.

My suggestion is to start a tape and then press the channel up or down button on the frnt of the VCR for a few seconds and see if it adjusts the tracking.

Hope this helps you out.

How can I turn to AV without a remote control (Samsung TV/VCR 19in Combo)

you might try going to channel 00
If you cannot just dial the number 00, go to channel 2 and then channel down.
Does not always work, but without the model number of the TV it is hard to advise further

Emerson VCR/DVD player - can't get tv (cable tv) to play anymore

I have the same problem with my Emerson VCR. When the ADD button is flashing, just press the menu button to exit the menu. It will add. That's the only thing I know to do. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Hooking up dvd player

Look for any button either on the unit or the remote marked with common stuff like A/V, Input, Source, Aux or Au, Line, TV-VID. or try dialing in Channel 0, or 00, or 1, or Channel Down surf below Channel 2. Alternately, get into the menu and look for stuff concerning Auxiliary inputs.

If all else fails, you can run a DVD's audio and video line-signals THROUGH a VCR. Hookup the VCR to the TV's RF (threaded) connector using standard coaxial cable. Hookup the DVD a/v output lines to the Line-ins of the VCR. Tune the TV to Ch. 3, tune the VCR to Line-in or Auxiliary and press the play or tv/vid button on the VCR to force the DVD signal through on channel 3 onto the TV.

Are you using the cable connectors to go into the VCR, and then from the VCR to the TV?

If so, turn the VCR on. Put the TV on channel 3 or 4 (depending on which one you have it set to. If you are unsure, try both channels one at a time) Press the VCR/DVD button so the display on the VCR says VCR (not DVD). Now, you should be able to change the channel with your VCR remote control. If not, you have a problem with your cables. Make sure your cable from the wall goes to RF IN on your VCR. The RF Out on the VCR should go to your TV ANT In or TV RF In.

If you have successfully gotten your TV to display the TV station shown on the front of your VCR, then all you have to do is put in a tape, select the channel you want to record and press the record button.

If you want to watch another channel while you're recording, press the TV/VCR button on the VCR remote, then use your TV remote to change channels.

When you want to stop recording, press the stop button, put the TV back onto channel 3 or 4 (depending on what you have it set to) and press the TV/VCR button on your VCR again. From here you can rewind and view your recording.
