Question about Zenith XBR716

1 Answer

Zenith xbr716 I just got a xbr716 could not connect it to my tv because there was no video or audio hook ups on my tv. I was told that I would need a r/f modulator, since all i had was basic cable not digital cable. I bought an rf modulator, the vhs tapes play, the dvd plays, but no cable tv comes through the recorder at all...help

ALL cable is digital.
What type of TV do you have? Does it have any scart conections on it? If not connect the Cable box with a scart lead to your VCR select the AV channel on your VCR, connect your VCR to your TV via the RF connection, (if it has not got one, its not a TV, its a monitor). Tune your TV in to the video channel.
You do not need an RF modulator for a home TV setup, whoever told you that is a fool.

I am not getting the channels on my unit to record anything.


This unit, like most these days, does not have a TV tuner built in. If you want to record, you need to provide the video and audio from another source, such as a cable box or satellite receiver. You can't just connect an antenna and tune a channel to record. You haven't missed anything; the capability just isn't there.

Trying to record movies I have recorded on my dvr, the old unit I had recorded everything. this one keeps telling me anything I try to record is protected. how do I turn that off or work around it?


Try getting a dvd recorder that connects to the video and audio ports and record to that. Im not 100% sure but I believe it records whatever it sees on the tv screen

Hooking up a convertor , when i have a vcr, dvd player


You can hook it up through the antennae system. Keep your dvr connected to the tv the way you had it. Hook up your TV rabbit ears antennae to the converter box in the connection on the left side of the box. Then hook up the antennae lead from the converter box to your TV on the right side connector. The only thing I'm wondering is, do you get stereo sound this way and does anyone know how to get it without hooking up the separate audio and video plugs? There aren't enough connections on the tv to hook up both sets.

Hooking up a dvd player


as you say that it is old tv so there is a possibility that there may not be audio video socket where dcd player can be connected. OR You will have to purchase one video RF converter.RF converter contains one video input in yellow color & two audio input in red & white colour & one cable connector as output. Connect the dvd output to this converter & tune tv program in which place you receive dvd signal.

Hey


You can find the owner's manual for this set online at: http://www.zenithservice.com/gcsc/b2c/hpi/main?tc=owm.command.OwmCmd It says that the BOTTOM four connectors are: 1. S-Video IN 2. Video IN 3. Audio (Right) IN 4. Audio (Left) IN Above the Audio IN connectors are two audio OUT connectors, which you could hook to external speakers, your stereo, etc. But these are not needed for hooking up your DVD player. From your DVD player, you need to hook up either the S-Video or Video connection (Video is typically the Yellow wire), plus the Audio connections (Red and White). If your DVD player has an S-Video output, this will give you a better picture than the standard Video connection. S-Video cables have a different plug, with four or five wires in the connector, and are keyed so they only fit into the socket in one orientation. Be careful to line it up properly and not force it in the wrong way.
