Re: recording from cable

L1 and L2 are different inputs on the VCR.If you have red, white and yellow input on the front of the VCR then when you put the VCR on L1 it should pick up a signal from the front.To get more channels on your vcr you want to do an autoprogram make sure the cable from the wall is plugged into the input in the back and go to the menu on the VCR and look for channel search or auto program and start the search.usually you can find this setting under something like SETUP, Programming,settings on the main menu of the VCR.You may have to search in the menu of the vcr for a little bit until you find it.Youll know when you got it when the channels automatically start scanning from 1-98.GOOD LUCK and rate me if this fixesya or is helpful.

I have the uniden dect 6.0 3 handset. I lost my manuel and do not know how to record my answer message

Which specific Uniden DECT 6.0 phone do you have? There are a number of them. Uniden has the manuals available here: . Phones are listed in alphabetical and numerical order.

If the answering system is off, turn it on before proceeding to the following steps.

If you are at home, there are usually two methods to access the answering system. Some Uniden phones let you set the outgoing message from the base or the handset. Others will only let you set the message from the handset. (Calling in remotely is more complicated.)

To access the answering system menu from a handset, on some models, push the Mute/Messages button. Then let your current message play or press 5 to stop the recorded announcement. Then either use the up/down arrows to select Record New Greeting (or the number that matches the sub-menu item). It's number 8 on the DECT1480. Then wait for the prompt (tone or "Record Greeting") and then speak into the handset clearly. Press 8 to stop recording and press End to save the message. Press 6 to select the outgoing greeting if a default greeting is available.

On other Uniden DECT phones, press Menu and go to Ans Setup. Then choose the line for the greeting (if it's a multi-line phone) and then select Record Greeting. Press Start, wait for the prompt and then press Stop when done. Press Stop again to save the message. If there is an optional pre-recorded greeting, use the Greeting Option submenu to select the greeting to play. (This applies to the DECT4086.)

From the base, you'll do something similar. However, you should stay about 9" from the microphone while recording. Messages can be between 30 seconds and 3 minutes 30 seconds for most systems.

I hope this helps.

(recording a new greeting during a remote call can be done but consult the manual for details.)

I recently bought a dect 6.0 digital answering system,and a friend put the first message on for me,then lost the manual,and now I can't figure out how to record a new message.Help!

Recording a Personal Greeting
Your answering system comes with a pre-recorded outgoing message or greeting that plays when you receive a call: “Hello, no one is available to take your call. Please leave a message after the tone.”
You can record your own personal outgoing greeting. Your recorded greeting must be between two seconds and thirty seconds long.

  1. Press /mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play themessages unless it has no messages.
  2. Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that thesystem is in the command waiting mode.
  3. Press 8 to start the recording. The system announces, “Record greeting.” Begin recording after the announcement.
  4. When you finish recording, press 8 again or press 5. You will hear a confirmation tone, and your recordedgreeting plays back for you.
Selecting a Greeting
Once you have recorded a personal greeting, the phone automatically switches to your personal greeting. You can also switch back and forth between the pre-recorded greeting and your own greeting at any time.

  1. Press the Message icon (letter)/mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.
  2. Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode.
  3. Press 6. The system plays the current greeting.

The pre recorded message on the answering machine has been lost.

I read thru the manual. There is nothing bout recovery of factory messages. If you recorded your own, try deleting it. Or unplug the base from power and try a reset. This is from the manual. At the end, I gave you a link to the manual!

Using a pre-recorded greeting
If you erase or do not record your own
greeting message, the unit plays a prerecorded
greeting message for callers
and asks them to leave messages. If the
message recording time (page 39) is set
to “Greeting only”, caller messages
are not recorded and the unit plays a
different pre-recorded greeting message
asking callers to call again.

Recording a phone call to a hard disk

This question has too many variables to answer completely. How many lines? How many calls? What's your budget? Do the other people know you're recording and is it legal in your area?

About $250 gets you a 2-line recorder that uses your USB port and includes all software. About $55 gets you a single line interface that uses the MIC or LINE input of a sound card, and my favorite software Total Recorder will record all the sounds you hear.

A search engine will find you "USB telephone recorders" where you can find surveilance and recording devices for a small or large budget. One even claums to record remotely via internet!
