Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player

1 Answer

No video output from Magnavox VCR (MDV560VR)

All of a sudden I can't get the video signal from the VCR side of my Magnavox MDV560VR. This is a combination DVD/CD/VCR. I have it plugged into the A/V tuner which in turn is plugged into the TV. For all these years with the analog TV, the Magnavox worked just fine. But things changed when I went to HDTV. Now I can get only the DVD signal out of the Magnavox. I can't get it to switch over to the video signal from the VCR. I have had the Magnavox plugged into the A/V tuner with both the single-line DVD/VCR Out cable as well as an S-video cable. As I say, that worked well with the analog TV. There was a three-week period during the changeover from analog to digital TV when I didn't use the Magnavox at all. Last night I tried again and couldn't see the VCR signal on the TV. I then added component-video cables from the Magnavox to the A/V tuner (which is similarly connected to the HDTV by component cables.) With progressive-scan, the DVD picture is impressive, but there's nothing from the VCR. In the old days I had the TV antenna plugged into both the Magnavox and the DTV convertor. Now that the HDTV is here, I have plugged the DTV box into the Magnavox, and I will use the DTV as my tuner for the Magnavox from here on. I know it's working, because I can hear the audio portion of the television programming through the stereo. Did my Magnavox VCR fail during the three weeks I didn't use it? Or am I missing some software set-up trick? TIA

    Update: I solved the video problem by adding a composite-video cable between the A/V tuner and the HDTV. It seems that the component-video cable transmits only the output from the DVD side of the unit.
    But now the audio output from the VCR has stopped. I've had to pull out my ancient Toshiba VCR for that capability. Is anyone else having problems with the audio output from the VCR side of this Magnavox?

You need to tune a chanel on your tv to the vcr signal, using an RF cable (aerial cable between vcr and tv). That is if your tv has an analogue tuner.

I have a dvd/vcr rrecorder with no coaxial connection. How can I tape or record a TV program?


Hi,first of all I assume that your Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player has the recording features as well..othervise you cant do anything"NEGATIVE" ..If yes than follow the procedure below..
If you want to record your TV program while watching to your DVD/VCR system you need to connect "Video - Audio Output " RCA jacks or "Optic cable output" of your TV or CABLE box to "Audio-Video input or "Optic Cable input" of the DVD
There you go..Your TV's video and sound is on the
DVD/VCR Dual Player Receiver..of course your DVD source input should correspond with the jacks you used on the back...push "RECORD" button it should start for recording the coming signal into DVD
when you recording the output RCA jacks of DVD will generate the signal of whatever records that can be monitored with another TV set after properly connected..
Take care and please

I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9 DVD Recorder VCR Combo. Do I need a separate tuner? If so what kind? Thanks


Hello
Ofcourse you need an external tuner to receive any RF signals. Your Magnavox is not equipped with internal tuner with it. OK.

Magnavox DV220mw9 won't record from Tv, hard to connect


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.

DVD/VCR Combo


your model is "tuner free" that means it does not have the RF screw in connector. Buy one that has a tuner, preferably both ATSC(USA digital) and NTSC(USA analog)
