Question about NAD T743 Receiver

Open Question

HDTV connection from DVD/VCR

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 a NAD T743 which in turn is plugged into a Dynex HDTV. 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 T743 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. I connected the T743 to the Dynex with component video and audio. I then added component-video cables from the Magnavox to the T743. With progressive-scan, the DVD picture is impressive, but there's no video from the VCR. The T743 plays the VCR's audio just fine. 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 just 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. Am I missing some software set-up trick? TIA

    Here is an update. I reconnected an old analog TV to the S-video port of the T743 so that I could see the T743's Input Settings. In the settings for "VCR" I found that the "digital" setting was on (I don't remember to which setting.) I turned it off. And now I don't hear the sound from the VCR. The video was setting was set to "VCR." I moved the composite-video and audio cables to the "video 4" jacks with no change. I did the manual reset (push in the "video 6" and "source up" buttons simultaneously, and then unplug.) I lost all my radio settings but still cannot get the VCR. I hooked up a different VCR to the "video 5" jacks with no change. The T743 does not seem to see any VCR at all.

    Another update. The video problem is solved. Turns out that the problem is my own understanding. These modern machines have two different videos systems which do not mix. I ran a composite-video cable from the monitor-output port of the T743 to the HDTV, and now I can see the VCR's video. I could have run an S-video cable as an alternative, but the composite cable is what I had on hand.
    I still cannot hear the Magnavox VCR's audio output through the T743, but I can hear the audio output of a much older Toshiba VCR when played through the T743. That gives me a clue as to where the audio problem is. :)

SOURCE: NAD T753 s-video in, component video out problem

I have the same amp. You have to have the same input as you do output for video...ie: s-video in/s-video out, composite video in/composite video out. I know it sucks but thats how NAD designed it.

SOURCE: No signal from sub connected to NAD T760 in test mode.

Try using front pre out to the sub from the receiver. the crossover is in the sub anyway. If this works change your settings on the receiver and test again. If sub is still inop, could be an internal issue with the sub amp. Does your sub amp have an on/auto/off switch or light? check that as well. Hope this helps, if you need further assistance, send a reply and I'll help some more

SOURCE: NAD 7130 FM stereo signal (on off again and again)

The contacts in the A B speaker selector switch had degraded on my NAD 7130 receiver. Distortion and signal loss would come and go. Contact cleaner and wriggling the swx knob became useless. Then, years ago I jumped the swx with small lengths of bare wire and tinned the whole thing with solder. Never had a problem since and it probably improved the receiver because it eliminated a component in the output stage that could (and did) introduce distortion.

I have a new element hdtv and a magnavox dvd/vcr. i can't seem to hook the two together. please help


Greetings, Simple hookup would be connecting analog output from DVD/VCR player to your TV. To do this, use the Audio-Video cable which has 3 terminals at both the ends and each terminal has RED,YELLOW and WHITE pin. Your DVD/VCR player would have analog output socket where you would connect one end of these 3 pins, make sure yellow would go in "VIDEO Out, WHITE would go in "LEFT Audio Out" and RED would go in "RIGHT Audio Out", you can easily identify them cause these sockes would also have the colors on them. Now connect other end of the cables to TV, this would be input to your tv. On the back left hand side of the TV, you would see 3 sockes with YELOW, WHITE and RED colors. These are located between "Coaxial" and "S Video" labels. Connect yellow pin to yellow socket which is "Video In", connect RED pin to RED socket and White to white. Switch on the TV, play any dvd on your player. On your TV remote, press INPUT button which is located on the right hand side top corner on remote, press it and if you get the dvd player video and audio, you should repeat the button press to see the video, this button selectes one by one signals given to TV, so your dvd player input might be on the 2nd,3rd or 4th press, so go through till you get the video signals. Hope this helps !!! --Sandy.

No video output from Magnavox VCR (MDV560VR)


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.

DVD player wont show picture


to turn it off select connection method 3 above and progressive scanning mode, to set the mode, set progressive to off in the display menu so that the p scan indicator light on the front panel goes out. do all of this in interface mode. you can also do this by pressing and holding PLAY > on the front of the unit for more than 5 seconds, still watch for the p scan indicator to go off. this works best when the unit is connected directly to the television.
