I assume it plays back a pre-recorded film with no problem? Check your antenna is connected to the input of the VCR or your cable box. If you have a cable box connected via a scart connector, then select AV channel on the VCR & select the programme from the cable box. If you are using the antenna the go into the set up menu & retune the VCR into your incoming channels & ensure the flylead from the output of the VCR (at the rear of the video next to where the antenna cable is positioned) is connected to the input antenna socket of the TV.

Have just retuned digital terrestrial receiver Matsui DTR -2 for our area, how do I now record tv programmes with my Bush VCR925NSILXI? On analogue TV the recording channel was Channel 9


Recording, amazingly, has nothing to do with your TV, it only monitors the playback or recording input of your VCR or DVD recorder - the Channel 9 you mention.
They have their own tuners, indeed DVD recorders have Freeview (or DTV) tuners so no need for a separate box at all - given that your TV has a DTV tuner too and if a recent flat screen type it will.
If you can afford it, this is a good time to drop VHS and get a DVD recorder. You'll find plenty on Amazon Electronics for a start.
Your Bush VCR will be redundant the moment the analogue service goes off, they haven't made a VHS VCR with a DTV tuner.
Depending on your area this is a few months off, even for the last area to change over anyway, here in London there's just shy of nine months left.

Lost manual. Cannot get HR A591U JVC VCR program to record a future cable tv program. Seems I have tried everything but it does not record as I set up. It will record an existing show by pressing...


Timer Recording JVC VCR HR A591U
Timer recording can be programmed on-screen with
the remote control. The built-in timer allows automatic
unattended recording of up to 8 programs within 1
month.

EXAMPLE: Program a timer recording for the 26th day,
channel 125 (CATV), 11:00 - 11:30 PM on timer program
number 1 (Tape speed: EP).

When a TV is connected with an audio/video cable, turn the
TV and this VCR on and select the video input mode on the
TV.


• After timer recording is completed, the VCR turns off
automatically.
• You can program the timer recording while a regular
recording is in progress; the menu screens will not be
recorded.
• The timer recording will start at 20 seconds before the time
you predetermined.

Press MENU on the Remote.
Check the “TIMER REC SET”
option is selected, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select one of
the program lines, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select the
date, then press ENTER.

Set the start time, end time,
channel and tape speed as in
step 3.
NOTE: To record from external
source, press SET –/+
and set the channel to
"L". "L" will appear next
to CH 125 (or 69).

To enter other programs,
repeat step 2 through 4. Or,
press MENU twice to return
to the normal screen.

Press TIMER on the Remote.
The power will go off, the
TIMER REC indicator ( ) will
light and the VCR stands by
for recording.

To cancel a program:

Press the SET –/+ to select the
“TIMER REC SET” option in the
MENU. Then press SET –/+ to
select the unnecessary program,
and press CANCEL to cancel the
program.

The timer used to work with analog cable TV but it does work with our cogeco digital cable TV. When the timer goes on, the little red VCR icon vanishes which means we are recording a blank, blue screen....


Some TV's output the signals for recording in different ways. It depends on how the VCR is connected to the TV. Have a look around the TV's menu or the instruction manual to see if has a setting for outputting signals to VCR's.

Rolling picture and blue screen


According to my Satellite provider tech support. More and more channels are being encoded so that recording equipment cannot capture the signals to prevent piracy. I know the premium channels use this technique now. I would call and ask tech support if there is any copy restrictions in place that would affect your VCR recording before doing any further trouble shooting on the VCR. If you can play pack a prerecorded movie fine with your VCR then it should also record fine. Also try watching the channel through the VCR tuner and I bet you will see the same pattern. The VCR can only record the signal it is given.

Hope this helps you,
Ron

Recording


With your setup, the VCR gets its input from the cable box output, which will be on either channel 3 or 4. It depends on how you've set the box. The channel you are watching on TV or want to record is picked on the cable box.

The VCR will only ever see a channel 3 or 4 signal, so it must stay on that channel. That means when you record, set the VCR to record on channel 3 or 4, the box OUTPUT channel. The biggest mistake people make when they have a cable box is to set the VCR to record on some channel other than 3 or 4, and the result is snow. There's nothing on any other channel for the VCR to record. You also need to have the cable box turned on and set to the channel you want to record if you set the VCR for timer recording. That's another pitfall people meet.

This should get your recording going.

Timer record on vcr/dvd attached to digital convtr box


You have to set the vcr to channel 3 or 4 (whatever the converter box is set to broadcast on). The signal to record has to come through the converter box. Since the VCR only has a analog tuner, it cannot pick up any digital channels on it's own.

VCR not timer recording, VCR will not turn on with timer


If no menu, unplug, and let it set a few minutes. Replug and the on-screen menu should appear. Reset the set-up (date, etc). I had the same experience as one of the other posters with JVC customer service telling me the menu button on the remote was malfunctioning, and I should purchase a new remote from them.
After you input your programming, be sure to hit the Timer button on your remote. If you want to change tapes or playback, you will need to hit the Timer button again (take it off Timer) for access to your VCR. Be sure to reset it to Timer afterwards, or you will not be able to record.

Proscan vcr psvr70


Sounds like it's wired up wrong...try this:
take cable line to VCR in, VCR out to cable/receiver box(if you have one) then box to TV...it sounds like the vcr is getting the channels from the box and not the vcr...you will need to have the vcr scan the channels (round in the settings menu) You will also be able to watch and record 2 different things.
