Question about Panasonic CT-32D31 32" TV

2 Answers

Picture in picture problem

I have installed a Samsung DVD-VR357 recorder. Now when I try to use the picture in picture on the tv, it will only show the station on the tv. I can't get the little picture to change. I have a Panasonic CT-32D31 tv, with a Time Warner Digital cable box.

    volume on left speaker remains low regardless of attempts to increase it with the remote; right speaker is off--no sound at all. It may be a coincidental, but the problems occurred the first time I turned on the TV after a 24-hour power outage in my house. I use Time Warner Cable. This TV is old, but has not been used a great deal. Picture and sound have been perfect until now.

When you use the Time Warner Digital box, you're using the tuner inside that box rather than the tuner inside your TV to select a channel. Picture in picture TV's have two tuner's inside so you can view two channels, but they can only tune the analog channels from your cable company, and only if it's hooked up in a manner that will permit this to happen.

So you only have one digital tuner (the Time Warner Box) so you can only view one channel at a time even though your TV supports Picture in Picture.

It MAY be possible to have limited use of the PIP if you connect your TV in a different way. Your Time Warner box is most likely connected to your TV set with composite cables, those are the Yellow, Red, White cables. If you buy a coaxial cable splitter and split the cable before it goes into the Time Warner box you can then run a coax cable into both the Time Warner box and the coax input on your TV. This would allow you to tune the analog Time Warner channels with both of your TV's tuners. In my area I think the first 60 channels or so are still available in analog, but there is no way to watch any of the higher premium channels without the Time Warner box.

If you go through these steps and you select the coax input on your TV your PIP will work on the lower channels. It MAY be possible to tell your TV to display the input from the composite cables on one of the PIP screens and the input from the coax on the other, but I kind of doubt it.

I know this sounds complicated and if you're not familiar with the way all this works it is complicated. The reason lots of people won't respond to this kind of question on this site is because there is no easy fix and by trying to help I run the risk of getting a bad rating. I don't get paid for this, I just like trying to help, so if I have not explained this in a way that's helpful to you please ask some additional questions before you give me a bad rating. Thanks.

DVD-VR357 RECORDS VIDEO (FROM VIDEO1) FROM COX DVR, BUT NO AUDIO


well there the first thing i would check is the audio connection..

basically if you are recording from a playing media, like a dvf player

it would be like this

audio and video out from the dvd player to the inputs in the recorder.. then the out puts from the recorder to the input in the tv... (just a refrence)

upload your diagram, and state exactly what you want to record from.. if its the tv or another media type..

If its from the tv,, lets say you got cable and you want to record from cable,, Its

connect the out put from the cable box to the input of the dvr, then the out from the dvr to the input of the tv..

or

if its from an arial

connect the arial to the dvr,, now connect the dvr to the tv,, I guess you got the picture of what i am saying..

Basically all the out put from the media you wish to record from to the DVR and then from the DVR to the Tv..

I have a Samsung DVD-VR357. I get no color on vhs tapes. I only get black and white.Picture is good. DVD color is ok. When I copy VHS to DVD, the DVD copy is in black and white also. DVD copies from...


Are you trying to copy a comercial VHS tape to DVD?
If you are then macrovision copy protection system on either the tape or in the machine is the reason for the loss of colour.
There's not a lot you can do about it. If you want to copy commercial material you will need to transfer it to a computer and get a program to do it. But unless it's unavailable it is cheaper to buy the DVD version I have found and you will get better picture and sound too!
If it does it with a none comercial tape (ie something recorded of the TV). Then it could be a head fault or something else. In which case try cleaning all the heads guides etc first.

How to record ?


I don't know a whole lot about electronic equipment, but I've never seen anything connected in so many ways at the same time. Maybe the antenna and one other type of connection. The different signals from all the connections are probably confusing each other. I would try one connection at a time to see if the problem improves. Good Luck.
