S-video imput not working

I tried to hook up my DirectTV DVR using the S-video cable and get no picture on the Toshiba DVD recorder. Sound is fine. I get a picture using the video cable but the picture quality is very poor. I hooked my VCR to the DVD recorder and received no signal from the VCR either. I also bought a new cable and no joy. Is there some setup I am not aware of.

Re: S-video imput not working

I had the same problem. Solved it by going to Set Up, Video Selection, then choosing the S- Video input jack, vs the default. Now if I could just get it to pass video when the unit is off...

Recording with comcast hd box and toshiba VCR/DVD

1st, see if you can get another cable box that offers component as well as RCA outputs on the back. Does your cable box have S Video out and does your toshiba have S Video in? If so, hook up the S Video from cable box to Toshiba. Then hook up R&W audio from Cable Box out to Toshiba In. Set the channel on the cable box to what you want to record. Set Toshiba to record channel 3 or 4, whichever your Toshiba is set on. The cable box controls the channel you are recording. You cannot set the recorder to the channel you want to record. It must be either 3 or 4. Try it. If everything else fails, you have to go cable from wall to cable in on cable box, cable out on cable box to cable in on Toshiba then either cable or RCA out on Toshiba to TV.

Getting a GoVideo DVD4000 to show color on my new SONY LCD

sometimes you can get the cable mixed up on the video. Make sure you have the right color cable in the right slot. The white and red cables are for sound only and they have to connect in the same gouping as the video cables.

Hook ups

use a video splitter for the audio and video, or go out of the DVD player in to the DVR, out of the DVR into the TV (WARNING!!!! Trying to hook a DVD player to any recording device may trigger the copyright protection, causing blue flashes, and distorted pictures)

Will not show picture on disc

Check the RCA wire or fiber optic conection. If you use RCA wire be sure you put Video output from your DVD to input Video of your tv set.
