Re: recording

The only thing that comes to mind is that you might have your recorder hooked up to the video out of your TV. Most times the video out only works when the TV is actually on.

check how you have your cables routed and reply back if this isn't the issue.

Anyone setup Timer recording on Vivo 32" TV model LEDTV32FHDF

Please read the guidelines given in the operation manual, and follow each step by step. You might be skipping one or more of them and that is why you are not able to set up the timer.

Hello Audrey,

If you can watch the videos on the TV, your cables are correct, but you don't generally record a video to DVD using the record button. Most VCR/DVD combinations have a DUBBING button on the front of the player and/or the remote control for copying from one to the other.

Additionally, some players can only record from video to DVD, some can only record from DVD to video and others will do both. On players that can do both, you need to instruct the player whether you want to record from video to DVD or vice-versa.

If you can le me know the model number of the player, I can let you know which recording options are available on your player, how to record and (hopefully) supply a new manual which you can download and print. The model number may be on the front of the player, but usually these are found on a label on the back of the player.

The latter part of your comments look familiar. Virgin Net did a similar thing and when the transmitters went to digital, all analogue recorders were rendered useless. All they could do is record the channel you are watching!
Sign of the times I think!

I need instructions to record from vhs video player to dvd recorder

Connect the vcr to the dvd recorder via scart. Set TV to your usual dvd channel and power on dvd. Power on vcr and scroll through input channels (AV etc) on dvd recorder until you find the signal from vcr. Prepare the recorder ready to record, then play the vcr and start the dvd to record.

Make sure when you do the process two things: one, a blank tape or If it is a dvd recorder, a blank disk is inserted, in the tape make sure the tab that prevents recording is not broken.Two, before exit the timer recording menu, make sure that there is not a instruction that says "done" or "confirm" or any word meaning that all the steps went through.
