Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player

Open Question

How do you take the Statelite off and reconnect to the cable box

On Thursday I tried to record a program on VHS. After the recording was over I tried to return to cable TV with no luck I went into the menu mode of the Phillips Recorder,there are only 5 modes. Timer record did nothing, so I went into Satellite Link, the time flashed and then said on. How do I get off of sat and back to the cable connection so I can watch TV again. Why would one recording cause a problem. If I am going out for the evening which do I use one-touch record or time record and does the cable box have to be on inorder to record?

check to see if the U-verse box is in HD mode. If it is, change it to standard definition and the problem should be solved.

Menu -> Options -> System Settings -> Aspect Ratio

Ensure that your source is correct. L1 is the rear inputs and L2 is the front inputs. If you have it set to L2 then you have no information from the TV getting to the recorder.

SOURCE: this program is not recordable in +vr mode

This means exactly that these are copy Once only, meaning you can not make it copy say 10 copies, at the same time, it means you must do one a at a time. If you wanted say 10 copies, you must do the entire process over and over.

TV/VCR Recording of TV Programs Using a Digital Converter Box


Hi Rick
I think you are painting yourself into a corner. So to Speak.
Why buy a SetTop Box to convert to an old VHS Tape when you can buy a Digital Recorder for probably the same price.
The modern way to Record video is to use a Hard Disk Drive Recorder rather than a VCR. They have a built in tuner and can record 2 stations at once and have a built in Electronic Program Guide. The EPG info is transmitted with the Digital TV transmission from the broadcaster.
I bought one 2 weeks ago for an old 85yo friend so he could record late night stuff and play back later. He still uses the VCR but only for old VHS Tape playback. It was a TEAC HDR9650TS Digital Video Recorder and I picked it up new for Aus$188.
Here are the unit features
  1. Main Features:
    DVB-T Twin Digital Turners
    DVR Recording: Record three channels while watching a 4th from same network Smart Series Record feature to record a whole series at a touch of a button
    2.5" Sata Hard disk: 500GB
    Time Shift Function (Pause live TV)
    HDMI Digital Output
    Digital Audio Output
    CVBS/YPbPr/SPDIF connectors
    Supports TV formats 4:3 and 16:9
    Electronic Program Guide (EPG) up to 7 days in advance
    EPG searching and auto download
    Recorded program edit
    Parental Control
    Copy files from internal HDD to external HDD
    Built-in WiFi
    Network Playback
    USB 2.0 Interface


Now
This was my original reply until I saw the light.

So, Hopefully one of these will answer your queerie.

A digital TV picks up the new Digital Transmission and stores it in memory, then supplies the high definition to the input of your TV.
With a STB, once the digital broadcast signal is captured by the Set Top Box tuner, it is stored in memory and then it is converted to Video Format and comes out of the back connectors as a standard video & audio signal on the Red & White (Audio) & Yellow (Video) as a composite signal that can also be attached to an older VCR tape recorder.
If the STB output connectors have a Red White & Yellow RCA plugs then it is all ready to be picked up by an older TV or VCR.
Most set top boxes also have HDMI Output for high definition video & sound in the one cable, which attaches directly to the back of your TV (assuming it doesn't already have a tuner (STB) already built in).
HDMI is the state of the art cabling for modern devices. But probably not on the old VCR.
It will either use Component, Composite or SVideo cables. Match one of these cable standards up with your VCR.
Cheers.... Trevor

Have digital TV have 3 yr old sony VHS VCR DVD player combo


A DTV converter box will take digital broadcast signals from the antenna and convert them to a format compatible with the VCR. You will be able to record programs received through the DTV box on your VCR if you could record analog over-the-air programs before the digital changeover. You can use either the RF output or the component output from the DTV box to input to the VCR.

I have a vhs/hq ..i have visual but no audio for a program i recorded last thursday. I tried recording from tv now and still no sound but picture. I played other movies or previous recorded things in vhs...


Try first to ensure that the scart lead at the back of the set or any AV leads that you are using are secure and tight.

Sometimes if the scart lead is not pushed home correctly it will lose audio. Try then to record a sample of video and try playback.
If there is still no sound try another scart lead first.

It will be a process of elimination I'm afraid.

Quazar Model VHQ520/VHQ540 cannot record after inst Digital Conv


You need to set the vcr to channel 3 or 4 (whatever channel the digital converter box is set to broadcast on) to record a program. The digital converter box has to be set to the channel you want to record the show from.

Stupid question recording on a vcr


If you have a cable box:: the RF cable from the outside to BOX, the BOX to the INPUT of vhs video, the OUTPUT of video (VHS) to the back of TV.
Keep the channel for the reception of tv through CABLE BOX according to cable box directions.
Put the ch. on the cable box to ch. u want to record...place blank vhs tape ( with the TAB in back NOT broken off ) press [record] usually red button.
