Question about Mitsubishi HS-U446 VCR

1 Answer

Is it digital? will I need a converter box?

My Comcast cable comes in through my Mitsubishi VCR HS-U446. I use my TV only as a monitor. This allows me to use my external stereo speakers rather than the TV speakers. With the changeover to digital in June, I am wondering if my Mitsubishi vcr HS-U446 is digital, or if I will have to get a converter box. Any advice? Thanks

The conversion to digital affects off air reception. Since you have Comcast analog cable, you will not be affected until Comcast decides to discontinue analog cable, which is not likely any time soon.
When that day comes, your old VCR will probably grace a landfill anyhow, and you will need a converter box from Comcast.

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.

Mitsubishi HS-U540 VHS VCR How do you connect the red, white, and yellow cables?


The RED is Right Speaker the WHITE is Left Speaker and the YELLOW is for
Video. They connect with RCA Cables to the same color coded inputs on yout TV.

You may find it easlier to just use a CoAxial Cable; Use a CoAxial for the CABLE IN to the Cable Box then 1 CoAxial from the Cable Box OUT to the VCR IN then use 1 OUT from VCR to TV IN. That is much easlier then using RCA Cables.

I have a Mitsubishi HS-U446 vcr and it works fine but the remote is totally worn out--is it possible to get a new one? Where?


There are several companies out there that make replacement remotes, and do not charge a fortune for them I used to have a similar model and got a replacement remote for about 40.00. It may seem like alot, but for that model and the Mitsubishi VCR's in general, I think of it as a wise investment. I used a Co. called Replacement Remotes.com. Ther also is another one called Smart Home remotes.

Comcast Digital Conversion box (cable TV)


You will have to split the signal before it goes into the digital box. The digital box is not allowing the analog signal to go to your vcr so you will only be able to record what you are watching on the cable box (on channel 4). If you split it, you will get all your analog channels back on your VCR (the way it was before the box was added).

Can we tape digital feed on a VCR and play it on an HD-ready tv?


You should be able to accomplish this. Run the antenna to your converter box. Run the video and audio outputs of the digital converter box to the inputs on your vcr. Your vcr should then be able to record the program (select line-in as the channel when setting up the recording). Hook your vcr audio and video output to your tv.
It's best to use a converter box that has an event timer - this allows the converter box to turn on at a specified time and channel. Otherwise you will need to manually set the channel you wish to record on the converterbox, and leave it turned on.

Digital to analog converter box to tv/vcr combo


You will need a splitter and an rf modulator to do timed recording of programs. The instructions are on the dtv answers website, option # 2, record and watch a different channel. The recording is for the analog stations 1-24. You cannot record the higher stations. The items I purchased were a 3 way splitter $7 at local hardware store, an rf modulator $25 at Radio Shack. The other option was to get a cable box for the tv and record off of that at $6.95 a month or a DVR for $8.99 per month, all from comcast. The price that I paid for the items I needed would be repaid in 3 months if I were to go the comcast route. The conversion is nothing more than a money making scheme for them.

Check batteries in remote- maybe they are weak/dead. Do the buttons on VCR itself do anything? Unplug VCR for a few minutes, perhaps this will clear the condition. Mitsubishi doesn't show your model, but perhaps this one will be close enough: http://www.mitsubishi-tv.com/j/i/18326/HSU449.html?cid=42

Most functions, clock/date set, channel add/delete and so on are done with the remote, and cannot be so done with the limited buttons on the VCR itself. Early VCRS (pre-90s) were setup with these VCR located buttons.

How do you connect the VCR Mitsubishi HS-U446 to record a TV show?


Usually the standard color coding for those connections are yellow, red and white. Yellow for video, red and white for audio left and right if it is stereo. Also pay attention on the the label of your vcr if it is input or output. You need need to connect it from output of your vcr to the input of your tv set. TV have also the same color coding. By the way the cable you use for this purpose is what we called RCA, which is also color coded. good luck!
