Re: don't know how to connect my vcr to my tv
You can either plug RCA cables from the audio and video, audio is red and white for stereo or just one of them for mono, the video is yellow, from the "outputs" on the VCR to the matching colors on the tvs "inputs". You can also connect the antenna output on the VCR to the antenna input on the tv and put the tv on channel 3 or 4, if done this way connect the antenna/cable to the VCR antenna in and connect a cable from the antenna out to the tv.

I dont know about your particular hd hookup , but I take the hdmi cable out of my dish reciever/dvr [digital video recorder] and run it straight to the hdmi input #2 in the back of my apex 40 in lcd-hd-tv
I think take the hdmi output from the at&t u-verse cable box and plug it into the hdmi input of your 70 in sharp smart tv
that will get the input signal from your cable box ,both video & audio, into your tv set. on the back of your tv set there should be audio outputs for home theater audio systems that would plug into the audio inputs of the home theater system.
prehaps i am wrong because you say that your yamaha is a home theater* reciever.* is the yahama more than a home theater audio system? What does it recieve?
Idea-- the salesman that you bought it from should be willing to help tell you how to hook it up.
also consider that there are many different ways to hook up vcr's and then dv recorders and dvd recorders and external 2 tera bite hard drives into my tv & dvr . I got that all hooked in & a rats nest of wires. so i can record in hd or sd,on vhs or dvd or dvr point is that you cant hurt anything by plugging the wrong plug into the wrong jack, as long as the same type of plug goes into the same type of jack. If its right,it works, if its wrong, it wont work until you plug it into the proper jack.
im sorry ,im 65 am not into knowing all the latest and greatest cutting edge tech ,but i am begining to catch up on my hobby, movie recording tech.
You don't really say what make or model is the TV or VCR. However if you have a TV with a scart socket you can get a scart lead and connect the VCR via that. If the VCR has two scarts connect it via AV1 sometimes black whereas the other might be blue. If the TV has more than one you will have to try each one, unless it says VCR on the scart socket, till you get the best picture.
You will need a male to female flylead,a scart lead.The main aerial into the house goes into the vcr it can only go in one socket on the vcr,then you connect the flylead female end in the vcr and the other end into the tv.You then connect the scart lead into av1 on the vcr and then into av1 or av2 on the tv.
use nothing but RCA output and input to all equipment. you will need a video cables..its three cables seem/connected side by side together with all male jack at one end and to the another end. the cable are color coded; (you can get this wire from walmart or radio shack, staples and make sure you get at least 5-6 feet long cables) yellow is for video and red for right audio and white is for left audio. everything is color coded on your TV,VCR and your reciever, you cant really get it wrong on the color. fist take one of the yellow video cable to your your tv input and to your vcr output, next take the red and white audio cables and plug it in to your vcr output and to your receiver input. that should do the trick. any other question just ask and i will try to walk you through. good luck!
Vizio representative suggested connecting antenna directly to TV and not through the VCR. In doing this, we lose the ability to record on the VCR but we record elsewhere and watch downstairs. The problem is solved on losing channels. I must add that we watch and record on a Sharp digital TV upstairs and do not lose channels. I don't know why the VCR had this effect on this Vizio TV.
I had the same problem and typed in the model of my vcr instead of the remote model. This is the site I found, although my tv is not on the list, I followed the steps at the bottom of the page and found that code 08 worked for my Phillips TV. I hope this helps all of you with finding your codes and programming your remotes. http://www.remotecodelist.com/remotes/sharp/sharp_vch982.html
You got the right idea,use the ext.imput on you tv and use the vcr to change the channels,you can check the solder conections in the tuner ,ussually the ground gets loose after a while but if you are not too familiar with tv service and dont want put any money in this set use your vcr.If the quality of the picture is still good then is worth keeping it.Let Us know if you need more information.
open back up the set and look closly at all of the plug connections and cables as you might not have pulled one out all the way but may have in inadvertantly pulled on a cable of one of them and pulled one out have way or just a little. My freind it happens to the professionals all the time. Make sure you check all the plugs on the VCR as well as the tv that they are instraight and flush. Good Luck
