Can I records from a LC195EMX TV


No you can't output the video signal from the LC195EMX's tuner to another device. It only has video inputs to obtain the signal from a DVD or Blu-ray player, for example. There are audio outputs to use with a sound system or headphones. Thus you could record the audio track, if you desired.

The manual for the LC195EMX is available from Emerson: http://www.emersonaudiovideo.com/support/download_tv.php?id=6 . You will need some sort of a set top box to record to a DVD/VCR recorder with either an analog tuner or no tuner. (OTA digital to analog converters connect easily to DVD recorders. For best signal, use a switch to feed the signal to the recorder, instead the TV. Splitters can be used to feed both at the same time. However, the signal loss could make either or both devices unwatchable with the digital OTA signal. Amplified splitters can reduce this issue; however, I've had the amplifier fail on several occasions. Then the amplifier blocks all of the signal or blocks select channel frequencies.)

I hope this helps.

ERROR MESSAGE NO SIGNAL INPUT


What is your TV signal source? Press the Input button on the remote and try another input. (Make sure a DVD player or set-top box is on.) If you are on the TV input, try a different channel. Next make sure that your cables are securely connected to the TV and devices. Replace with new cables to test them. If you use an OTA antenna with a splitter, try a direct connection. (Similarly, if you have an amplifier on the signal, try a connection without the amplifier.)

For OTA or direct cable connections, try accessing the Channel Setup menu and rescanning for channels.

I hope this helps.

(I get some weak channels that give No Signal messages when the transmitter has a problem or the weather is bad. I've also had a signal splitter/amplifier fail and block specific channels by becoming a filter. The direct connection identified the amplifier problem.)

Most DVD players and maybe the Wi are connected via rear audio and video input jacks so that may be your issue.

How do we connect a DVD to a TV


Hi, Go to Radio shack store and get a cable signal splitter. Its a small device that splits 1 line into 2 or 3, so that you can run more players or recorders on 1 line in. See the guys there for more options.

I am attaching a digital set top box to this TV Model C21F200 and have a video/dvd player to attach as well. I can't seem to get both working. Can I tune the video to the TV with the set top box attached?


If your TV has AV inputs available, you can connect the video player there and switch to that input to watch it. I don't think your model does, though; I think it has only an antenna input connector. This means your set-top box will connect there but you have no place to connect the video player. In fact, most new video players only have AV outputs, and don't have an RF (radio frequency - a channel 3 or 4 TV signal) output connector, and you'd have problems connecting it anyway.

All is not lost, although you'll need some extra parts to hook everything up. I'm assuming the set-top box (STB) is going to your TV on channel 3 or 4, using a cable from the box to the TV antenna connector. If your video player does indeed have an RF output, the simple thing to do is get a splitter. They look like this:

pgh_pa_guy_13.jpg

Normally, a splitter is used to break one input signal (into the single connector) into two outputs (the connectors on the other side). But you can also use one backwards to combine two sources. So you can connect the RF cable from the STB to one output jack, connect the video player RF cable to the other, and connect the "input" side of the splitter to your TV antenna jack. If your STB is set for channel 3 output, set the video player for channel 4 so they won't interfere. Then you can tune the TV to channel 3 for TV signals from your STB, and to channel 4 for videos. I know, it sounds confusing.

If your video player doesn't have RF output, but just video and audio outputs, you need an RF converter. This device takes the AV output from the player and generates a channel 3 or 4 RF signal the TV can tune in. A typical converter looks like this:

pgh_pa_guy_14.jpg
Connect the AV outputs from the player to the jacks on the converter. The output cable from the STB will go to one of the round antenna connectors on the right, and the cable from the other one goes to your TV. When you aren't playing a DVD or tape, the converter passes the signal from the STB through to the TV. When you turn on the video player, the converter switches and you'll see the picture from the player. Most converters switch automatically, but on some you might have to flip a switch. RF converters are available from retailers who sell TVs or online.

I'm sorry if this seems unnecessarily complicated, but most TV sets today have plenty of inputs for all these things, and usually you just plug in the connecting cables and go. But with older sets or sets that don't offer the inputs, you need to go through these shenanigans. But once you have the parts hooked up, it's not too bad.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Unfortunately, size limitation of what could be attached prevents posting a connection diagram. Still, proposed connection scheme:
  • 4250HDC's HDMI to Panasonic's HDMI 1 or 2;
  • 4250HDC's VIDEO OUT to GoVideo's LINE IN 1 VIDEO;
  • 4250HDC's AUDIO OUT to 2 pcs of RCA Splitters (shown below);
  • 1 pair from the 2 splitters to GoVideo's LINE IN 1 R-AUDIO-L;
  • the other pair to Yamaha's LD/TV L & R;
  • GoVideo's LINE OUT VIDEO to Panasonic's VIDEO IN 1 VIDEO;
  • GoVideo's LINE OUT R-AUDIO-L to 2 more RCA Splitters;
  • 1 pair from the 2 splitters to Panasonic's VIDEO IN 1 L-AUDIO-R;
  • the other pair to Yamaha's VCR 1 IN L & R;
  • to watch cable TV in HD quality, set Panasonic to HDMI 1 or 2 by pressing Panasonic remote's INPUT button, then 3 (or 4), then OK;
  • to hear cable TV programs on Yamaha's speakers, set Yamaha to LD/TV;
  • to watch DVD or VHS, set Panasonic to Video 1 by pressing Panasonic remote's INPUT button, then 6, then OK;
  • to hear DVD or VHS on Yamaha's speakers, set Yamaha to VCR 1;
  • to record cable TV programs, press GoVideo remote's TV VIEW button a couple of times to cycle through the signal sources or until Line 1 is displayed.

The use of the splitter shown below would effectively double the AUDIO OUT of the cable box and the DVD/VCR combo to feed both the TV and the stereo. Additionally, this would allow use of the cable box and/or the DVD/VCR combo with or without the Yamaha.

How do I connect a wii to a tv with a dvd player. the tv only has one set of RCA inputs.


You can get RCA "Splitter" boxes that you can select a switch, which selects Input goes to the Output. try Ebay or the like. I have include a link so you know what to look for. make sure you get a high quality one.. the one below, is NOT. It will work but are poor quality. But you get the idea. http://cgi.ebay.com/Audio-Video-AV-RCA-Switch-Switcher-Selector-for-DVD-PS2_W0QQitemZ180466963596QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item2a04ab548c

I am unable to get my vcr to record. To use my vcr i have to turn my tv to channel 3. Our cable company uses channel 4. Please help


If the tv is working with the cable box with the coax to channel 4 ( then with this configuration to send any signal to the VCR actually it is posible to use a splitter with coax and send the signal to the tv and vcr after the cable box. vcr has tobe in channel 4 also, all channel selection is done in the cable box then anything you see in the tv is recorded in vcr. BUT guess what: You maybe can try something else:
If you send the cable from the wall straight to the splitter and then from splitter to the TV and to VCR, now you can record differnt channel than you are watching in the tv but in this case scenario you need to send the vcr to the video input 1 of the tv to play what is record. Any way to install this TV and VCR you not always need to depend in the cable box.
