Re: orion model vpdc connection problem

Most, if not all, TV sets which have a tuner section (will tune in individual channels either off an antenna, cable system etc.) should be UHF capable. UHF channels are approximately channels 14 - 83 of the standard broadcast spectrum, unless this has now changed with HDTV or other RF spectrum changes by the FCC. These channels are not the same as the cable channels, for which the mode of the TV set must be set.

Anyway, you will connect the VCR to the RF input of the TV, and set the TV for non-cable mode (broadcast). You will likely need to set the TV for a particular channel which matches what the VCR sends the signal out on.

I assume also the VCR doesn't have composite video out & audio out jacks on it? If it does, these hookups can be made to matching connections on the TV.

Hope this helps.

Cannot get video on my Orion model VRO 211B

Could be a connection problem. Pins on plugs can become bent or damaged, sometimes it is the socket that the plug fits into that becomes damaged. Try a different connection lead.

Digital programing

By the look of it you would need to connect a digital set box to it to record any TV programs, seeing that most countries are switching off or have switched off analogue TV. The video would then pass any signal it had recorded via a scart lead to any TV with one of those sockets.

Orion VCR 213 will not record with converter box

The chain of cabling that you have should go like this; First in line should be the wall supplying the cable box. Then, the cable box connects to the VCR, then the out of the VCR should go to the TV. Select whatever channel you desire, make sure that the VCR is on Channel 3 or 4, (Whichever the back of the cable box is set) then select 3,4 or line/AUX to see the results....accordianman

How to set clock on Orion VCR VR0419

Most late VCRs require the remote box to set the clock, timed recording etc. Assuming you have the Orion remote, it should have a programming or menu button, and the function you need can be selected from a list of options. If the remote is an aftermarket unit (non-Orion), it must have the capability to do the advanced setup (clock set etc.). Many aftermarket remotes only do basic channel selection, and tape functions (play, rewind, stop, etc.).
