How do I connect a VCR with the TV


connecting the VCR to a TV is not a big deal. There are two methods by which you can connect the VCR to our TV.

1. You can use a RF cord.
2. You can use a RCA cord.

I would suggest you use the RCA cord because the RCA connection has a better sound and display quality than the RF. So I would direct you on how to use the RCA connection method.

Here is a picture of what the RCA cord looks like for quick identification;


As you can see from the above picture that there are three cords. The Yellow cord is for display (video), while the with and red is for sound (audio Left & Right).

Turn of the VCR and the TV.

Look at the back of the VCR, connect the yellow to 'video out' and the white and red to 'audio out'. Note that the VCR might have only one audio out, that doesn't matter, just connect any of the red and white.

Now connect the other end of the cord to the back of the TV this way; Yellow will go to 'Video in' while the red & white will go to 'Audio in'.

Turn on the TV and VCR.

Select the TV to Source/AV and the display of the VCR should appear on the TV. Or better still, you can insert a cassette into the VCR, press play before selecting Source/AV on the TV.

By now the connection should be Okay.

If you any more questions or clarifications, please let me know as I would be glad to respond.....

Yours sincerely.

I am trying to connect the vcr to the tv with a cable box

There are two ways to connect your equipment.

1) Connect the cable box antenna output (may be labeled "out to TV", "antenna out", "catv out" or even something else, but the key is it will say "out") to the VCR's antenna input. From the VCR's antenna output (out to tv, etc.) you connect to the TV's antenna input. For these connections you use RF cables, the kind with something called F-connectors on the ends. (These cables are available with screw-on or push-on type plugs. Use the screw-on type which makes a more reliable connection.) Set your VCR and TV both on the cable box output channel. This will be either 3 or 4, depending on how the box is set up. With this setup you can record whatever program is coming from the box by having the VCR record on the box output channel. Unfortunately, you can't record shows that are on different cable channels unless you'll be there to change channels on the box. (There are some VCRs that can control a cable box to switch channels, but I don't believe your model does.) You also can't watch one channel while recording a different one.

2) (This won't work if your TV doesn't have a video input available.) Connect the cable box to the VCR and the VCR to the TV with audio/video cables. These are the ones with RCA plugs, color-coded red and white for right and left channel sound and yellow for video. Set the VCR to line input and the TV to the input you have the VCR connected to. This connection setup gives a better picture and sound quality that the RF connection described above. You still have the same restrictions on recording, though.

Sounds a little confusing, I know. Just remember that inputs connect to outputs and you'll be set up in no time.

Connecting Hitachi VCR to my Direct TV.

Connect your Direct TV to the Ant. In connection on your VCR. When you want to watch TV, just tune the TV to channel 3 (or whatever channel the Receiver is set for). When you wish to record, set your VCR to that same channel and set your TV to the channel that your VCR outputs to. For simplicity sake, I would suggest setting both systems to channel 3 and just watching your program through the VCR. If you are still using an "off air" antenna, then connect that antenna to the ANT. IN connection on your Direct TV receiver and when you turn off the dish, it will pass the signal through just like the VCR would.

Setting the clock/time

There should be a menu button on the remote which will get you into the various advanced programming functions. Many/most of the late VCRs cannot be programmed, time set with the buttons on the VCR itself.

You need to change the Audio / Control Head, as well as the Pinch Roller of the machine. A worn out Audio cum Control Head will reflect in poor tracking and so will cause the above problems.
