Question about Philips MWD2205 DVD Player/VCR
I have a Magnavox analog TV (about 12 years old) and a Magnavox MWD2205 DVD player with VCR player/recorder that have worked well together until the DTV transition. I do not have cable or satellite service. I have no problem with receiving the digital channels. I actually receive more now with the converter box (Magnavox TB100MW9). The problem I have is with getting a clear picture for programs I have recorded. The recording works fine except the picture. It's in black and white and is zig-zaggy and snowy. I know that I won’t have a digitally clear recorded picture image, I just would like a color (analog-type) picture image. I have the following hook-up sequence: Antenna out to Converter Box in, Converter Box out to VCR in, VCR out to TV in. It was suggested that I try: Antenna out to VCR in, VCR out to Converter Box in, Converter Box out to TV in. I tried this, but I only received one channel, so I switched it back. Is there a solution to make the recorded images (analog-type) clear? Will the images vary from channel to channel? Thanks!
Have you tried turning off the power to the digital converter when you wqnt to watch the analog VCR programs? Some converter boxes (most I would think) have analog pass-through functionality, which allows viewers to see channels that continue as analog even after the change. (rural areas). By turning off the power to the converter box, the analog signal should just pass through without interference.
