    Hi
    Please plug cable/ antenna in RF-IN pin at rear of DVD recorder, turn
    it ON and press SETUP, then CHANNEL, then select Auto Channel Setting,
    this will enable dvd recorder to scan all available channels and store
    in its memory.
    Now you can select Channel in recording window to record a program.
    Hope this info will help you.
    Thanks.

    Curently the cable from Comcast goes directly to the Comacst HD Box. There is a cable coming out of the DVD that is not conected to anything. I can play items all ready recorded but can not program in a channel on the selecting a program to record.

    If I have the cablecome directly to the DVD recorder how then to I geto the Comacst Cable box?

    Right, does cable box has any video-audio output jacks? if yes..
    Hook AV cable (yellow-red-blue) between cable box and dvd recorder, input-1, 2 etc to record desired program.

    Yes it does and these are connected as you said. Still doesn't allow me to select the channel for recording. What about that cable coming from the RF-in on the DVD that is not attached to anything?

    ========================================================================

    AV
    connection will provide audio video signal of selected channel directly
    from cable box to dvd recorder that will record that particular channel.
    Let me know where from that cable is coming in RF-IN of dvd recorder?
    If
    its not hooked with any thing, check any thing like RF-OUT at cable box
    rear and hook it up there and tune channels in dvd recorder as said
    before.

    The unconnected cable is coming from the RF-IN on the back of the DVD and just hangs loose. I checked on back of the TV and there is no sign of RF-Out on either the TV or cable box. on the cable box there is a small hole the is labeled IR receive. I will be leaving home soon and will be back this evening. Thank you for continiuing to check this out!

Hi.

You will need to connect an antenna and program channels to internal tuner if you want to use the built in tuner.

It is not clear if your problem is with the HDTV or with the DVD recorder.

Both have an internal tuner, and both can tune channels , L2 and L3 are the input lines used when you connect for example to an external receiver.

Regards.

Scheduled a timer recording of a program on a DVD+R and when I went to play it back all I got on the screen was noise and snow. I now realize that I used the wrong disc (should have used only DVD-R). ...


Hi,During timer recording adjustment you must have selected what ever you want to record..i.e: Tuner Channel , or ,Video1 input ,or Video 2 input etc..This problem is related with Source selection but not with - + type Disc..wrong disc will refuse to record at the beginning..

The noise and snow shows that your recorder was Recorded an unadjusted RF channel..thus no TV signal was available during recording ..
I assume that your DVD recorder has built in TV tuner in...To correct the problem,first you make an automatic Ch set up ,search the available channels either on the Cable (if you have ) or RF local channels thru Arial Antenna..
than you try to record again by carefully selecting ..you will record TV RF channels successfully. Or you can attach another video source to your Recorder thru the RCA cables on the back panel and by selecting the respective SOURCE in accordance withe cabling you have made than you will record the AV signals available on your Receiver..
If you need more help pls let me know for further advise.

Can't get rid off L2 message on the recorder.


If I'm understanding this as what I think it is - that's not an error message at all! It's the input your recorder is currently set on (I'm talking about the "L2" shown in the right side of the LED display when the unit is powered on, where the channel number would usually be.) In order to change that, you have to open the bottom flap on the front of the machine (or slide open the remote bottom for the record controls to be exposed,) and press the "Input Select" button twice until it cycles through L3 and ends on whatever channel you last left it on - I think it defaults to 100 if the power has been interrupted. When you press this button after that, it would cycle through "L1", "L2", "L3", and the channel input (or coaxial cable input, to be exact), as expected. I know of no other "L2" message you might be speaking of. If I'm incorrect on this, I apologize. But I hope I'm not and that this simple issue is all that is causing you a headache! Good luck! And by the way, "L1,2, & 3" are the RCA/S-Video inputs on the back (L1 and L3) and on the front (L2) of your machine for various things you might plug in (video cameras, etc.) Note: For L1 and L3 ONLY, you have to go into setup to select whether you will be using the RCA yellow or S-Video jack on the back of the machine for the video of that particular input (with no bearing on the RCA audio jacks for that particular input - they're always used...) - the front L2 input evidently selects on its own between S-Video and the RCA yellow plug, based on which plug has something plugged in. I haven't tested to see which it will select if they are both occupied with a plug on L2. I don't mean to treat you like an idiot -- please don't take it that way - but I don't know how much you know about electronics, and IF I'm right about this whole thing, then I'm sort of assuming you aren't too familiar with them. In either case, please know that I mean well, and any information that you already know, just overlook. Thanks, and again, good luck!

Assuming you are running windows XP you need to

1. right click the speaker in the lower right corner and select adjust audio properties.

2. Select the audio tab

3. Pull the drop down menu under sound recording and make sure it is selected to your audio driver device. Most are either soundmax, creative(for soundblaster and audigy standalone cards), realtek, or ASUS.

4. Next repeat step one but select open volume control

5. Go to options and then properties

6. Select the circle for recording and make sure your mic input is checked.

7. Close that window and recording mixers will pop up. Select the input you need by checking the box in the lower left corner of the mixer channel. Adjust the level and then use your recording program or sound recorder under Program files>accesories>communication>sound recorder.

Lost manual. Cannot get HR A591U JVC VCR program to record a future cable tv program. Seems I have tried everything but it does not record as I set up. It will record an existing show by pressing...


Timer Recording JVC VCR HR A591U
Timer recording can be programmed on-screen with

EXAMPLE: Program a timer recording for the 26th day,

When a TV is connected with an audio/video cable, turn the
TV and this VCR on and select the video input mode on the
TV.


• After timer recording is completed, the VCR turns off

you predetermined.

Press MENU on the Remote.
Check the “TIMER REC SET”
option is selected, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select one of
the program lines, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select the
date, then press ENTER.

Set the start time, end time,
channel and tape speed as in
step 3.
NOTE: To record from external
source, press SET –/+
and set the channel to
"L". "L" will appear next
to CH 125 (or 69).

To enter other programs,
repeat step 2 through 4. Or,
press MENU twice to return
to the normal screen.

Press TIMER on the Remote.
The power will go off, the
TIMER REC indicator ( ) will
light and the VCR stands by
for recording.

To cancel a program:

Press the SET –/+ to select the
“TIMER REC SET” option in the
