Question about Emerson EWD2202 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Channel Setup I have the unit hooked up to an antenna but when I go through the Automatic Setup, it keeps recognizing the input as Cable rather than Air. Is there a way to manually change the channel setup- I can't find anything like that in the Menu. I've tried the setup with no input as well and it still insists that it's getting a Cable signal.

Re: Channel Setup

It's saying that because the antenna is hooked into the same thing, the coaxle jack. It shouldn't memorize any chanells that don't come in on the antenna. It's been a long time since I had mine hooked to an antenna but I know it'll work if you let it go through the auto setup. If need be unplug the unit for like two minutes so it's memory is erased and then fo form there. I hope this helps

Hook up to view dvd's to tv video cables with yellow white and red plug ins.

Hello, here is a sample for auxilary connection for the chdvd300: . Use the AV (Audio/Video) cable
provided to connect the DVD player to
your TV as shown in the diagram.
. Your TV must be equipped with AV
inputs like those pictured to the right in
order to connect this unit.
. If your TV does not have AV inputs, you
will need a RF Modulator to connect this
player to your TV's antenna/cable input.
RF Modulators are available at major
electronics retailers.
Connect the DVD Player to
your TV
CH-DVD 300 Quick Setup Guide
. The goal is to see the DVD player's splash screen on your
TV. To do this, select the Video Input channel on your TV
that corresponds with the input the player is plugged into.
This procedure differs among TVs, but is normally done by
pressing the VIDEO IN or INPUT button on the TV's remote
control to select the Video Input.
. When the DVD player's splash screen appears on your TV,
you're ready to go!
4 Select the VIDEO INPUT on your TV

. Plug the DVD player's electrical
plug into a wall socket or power
2 Plug-in the Power Cord
3 Turn on the DVD Player and your TV
. Press the POWER BUTTON on the front panel to turn the
DVD player on. The POWER LED should now change

Can we record with our sanyo drw 500 and a digital tv? If so, how do we do this?

If cable/SAT box, hook-up that box video/sound output to DVD video/sound input. If no cable/SAT box, hook-up cable from wall into antenna/cable in on DVD and tune DVD to channel wished, and hook-up DVD TV antenna out to TV antenna in. If DVD has no antenna/cable in, TV must have video/sound output. Hook to DVD video/sound input. Hope this helps.

Would like to record from my tv to my magnavox dvd/vcr combo box

If I understand your request right, You do not have cable or satellite box.
You can not record from your TV. You use the TV as a monitor from the dvd/vcr combo box. What the box receives is what shows on the TV. So you will have to have a digital convertor hooked to the (antenna in) dvd/vcr combo box, (antenna out to the tv antenna in) Depending on the antenna you are using that is on the other end of your cable-in coax connection this will hook to your antenna in on the digital convertor box. If your cable is hooked up and operating correctly and directly to the tv that is digital ready you probabbly have a good picture. When the vhf/uhf signal was transmitted you could go from the dvd/vcr to the tv with no problem. But now that the signal is digital and the tv is set for digital the dvd/vcr will not pass a digital signal to the tv. Best suggestion, you have to get a digital dvd/vcr receiver. If you have more question please contact me.

I have installed a converter box we have a rooftop antenna, now I cannot record, it does not seem to find channel 9.1, 12.1 etc only 9, 12 etc I went from antenna to converter to DVD MWR10D6 to TV. My tv...

If you have the converter connected to the recorder by composite or s-video(line inputs), you will need to specify which jacks from within the setup menu of the recorder. There are 2 sets of line inputs into the recorder, so you have to select the right ones. They are called L-1 and L-2. The L-1 jacks are in the rear and the L-2 jacks are in the front. The channel selection should also be on L-1 or L-2. If you are using the
RF input(fat cable) to the recorder, you should have the recorder on the channel number that matches the output of the converter (channel 3 or 4). The converter RF output is selected by a switch in back of the converter or by the setup menu of the converter.

Menu path for setting L-1 or L-2 inputs:
Setup > General Setting > Video > Video Input > L-1 or L-2 > Video In or S-Video In

How do I hook up a VCR to a small Sanyo TV? Thank you

How you hook up the VCR depends on the connections available on the VCR and the TV.

The simplest method is to use a cable from the VCR's RF (antenna) output connector to the TV's antenna input connector and tune the TV to the VCR output channel (3 or 4). You might need to purchase an adapter to switch from the standard plug on the cable to whatever kind of external antenna connector is on the TV. If the set only has a built-in antenna and no external connection at all (which would be quite unusual), you need a "balun" transformer. This has a connector on one end for the cable from the VCR and a flat wire with two terminals on the other end. Attach one of the terminals to the set's antenna with a clip-on jumper wire. Radio Shack sells the parts.

If your VCR does not have RF output but just audio and video jacks, connect those to the TV's a/v inputs if it has them. Again, an adapter cable might be required.

If the TV doesn't have a/v input available, you need an RF converter. This takes the a/v signals from the VCR and produces a channel 3 or 4 output that you can connect to the TV as described above.

It sounds more complicated than it actually is. Once you look at the VCR and TV, and remember that outputs always go to inputs, it's usually pretty clear what needs to be done. If you still have troubles please post a follow-up comment and I'll try to help more.

Need instruction to hook up dvd player

You will need a TV or monitor with audio/visual inputs. The better ones have what is known as an S/VHS input, which separates the TV picture signal for better color reproduction. You will need to be able to switch your TV, usually by the channel selector, to the proper input for audio visual signals. Sometimes this is known as Video 1, Video 2, A/V etc. These are usually below Channel 2. Maybe your remote has that option. You will need an a/v cable. This is a three-connector cable with RCA plugs on each end. Connect the DVD player to the TV as follows: 1. Yellow cable, from video OUT on the DVD player, to video IN on the TV. Video is ALWAYS yellow. 2. Red and white cables from audio OUT on the DVD player to audio IN on the TV. 3. If you have S/VHS capability, buy an S/VHS patch cable which will have the three plugs mentioned, plus a round 4-pin plug. Select S/VHS OUT on the DVD player, and S/VHS IN on the TV. When using S/VHS, ignore the yellow connector. It is for composite video and not needed. Here's a hint: Your YV audio/visual inputs will usually be on the back of the set. Some better units have a/v inputs in front. What if my TV doesn't have a/v inputs? If your DVD player as an RF output, connect an RF "f" cable from that output to the antenna in cable on your TV. Otherwise buy an RF converter (about $20 or so at Radio Shack). Connect your a/v cable (yellow, red and white) from the DVD player to toe converter, then connect an RF cable (like the kind your cable box is connected with) to the antenna input on your TV. This signal usually comes in on Channel 3. Let me know if your problem is more complicated, It seems like a lot of wires and connections, but it is really straightforward, Remember, yellow is ALWAYS video. The two audio cables can be connected without worrying about color.

That sounds about right if you have cable instead of an antenna cable. If it can't tune anything but 5 channels in, that's all it claims; set it to CABLE IN instead and try that so the tuner can get along with your cable box. If you really do have an antenna hooked up, get it away from whatever's reflecting signal and screwing up reception.

Can't hook up DVD player

I have a cable box and a Samsung DVD-V5500 player. How do I hook up the 3-part cable to the back of the player?

No display

Press the DVD button on the Philips remote. Make sure the yellow part of the RCA cable is plugged into Output/CVBS/Out on the back of the Philips, and that it is plugged into a yellow input of your TV. Change your TV channel to Av1, av2, video 1, video 2, aux, aux 2, or whatever the correct video channel is on your TV. Then press setup - you will get your picture.
In order for the coax connection to work on Ch. 3 of your TV, you will have to get an additional piece of equipment - an RF modulator. It's better just to stick with the RCA red, yellow, white cables.
