Question about Televison & Video
I once had the RC388 model and enjoyed it until the VCR started making trouble recording so i went and bought the RC689,the seller said it was exactly like the RC388 only with HD but now i hooked it up and it seems like recording to a VCR Cassette is a option excluded from this product and that is the function i need most so i want to ask if this is a problem in my unit or is it build like that? What more the unit acts real sluggish,again,is it like that for everybody? It's weird to me that this is more expensive then the RC388 yet it offers less...
I see a RC689D model. It DOES record via VHS and it should do so as you have done before. Go through all of the steps in making sure the tape(s) you're trying to use isn't missing the "Safety" tab, look at the tape to make sure there are no defects, and make sure you are receiving a signal to the VCR. With most signals being "Digital" and not analog, I would assume you are trying to pull your signal from either a digital box, a Satellite feed, or a cable feed.
Try "Daisy chaining" your VCR from your output box using the following method(s):
Signal coming to box> (1) Coaxial or Cable hookup from box to VCR> (2) Red White Yellow connectors from source to VCR> VCR output using same method(s) as input from source to TV> make sure your TV is set to the correct channel; usually notated as either channel 3 or 4.
If you cannot get the VCR to record correctly, and you have checked and verified all of the input\output cables are properly seated, and you are getting a signal from the VCR to the TV, then it is possible the unit may just be faulty, in regards to recording onto a VHS tape.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: dvd/vcr recorder stops recording
DVD-RAM itself, and DVD-R formatted in "VR" mode are SUPPOSED to allow for recording "ONE TIME" per DRMA. The broadcasters are probably sending the wrong copy protection signal if the -RAM & -R/VRmode are stopping.
At least, that is my understanding.

If its a combined dvd/vcr unit you should be able to record on the dvd input from the vcr with a 3 split cord connected as described below..
Video output - yellow.
Audio output - left and right - red & white.
Video input - yellow.
Audio input - left and right - red & white.
Or you might have to use a standared RF cable from the
antenna out on the video to the antenna in on the DVD.
Just as you can't copy commercially made video tapes to another VCR due to Macrovision anti-copy encoding, the same applies to making copies to DVD. DVD recorders cannot bypass the anti-copy signal on commercial VHS tapes or DVDs. If a DVD recorder detects the anti-copy encoding on a commercial DVD it will not start the recording and display some sort of message either on screen or on its LED front panel display that it detects the anti-copy code or that it is detecting an unusable signal.
A DVD recorder can be used to copy any homemade videos, such as camcorder videos and videos made from TV shows, and can also copy Laserdiscs, and other non-copyprotected video material. Also, remember that a DVD recorder also has a built-tuner for recording TV programming directly. The tuner can be programmed to record a series of programs on different days and times, much like a VCR. However, if you are recording a non-copy protected DVD to a DVD recorder you can record any of the video content, provided you click on the menu and start the video segments running and you have enough time space on the disc. DVD recorders function like VCRs in that they can record incoming video signals -- however, they do not automatically copy all the contents of the DVD - for instance, you cannot copy the interactive menu functions of a non-copy protected commercial DVD. A DVD recorder creates its own menu functions, it will not duplicate the function menu from a another DVD.
Hope this will help you.
