Is there a channel to go to when you want to watch from a dvd player?
Ok so I have connected my dvd player to the vcr but how do I make my vcr recognize it? Do I need to press a button from my vcr remote because my vcr remote is busted as I install new batteries and it still won't connect to my vcr so i'm using a universal remote but I want to know how do I let my vcr recognize my dvd player?

Use the Dub video feature. This will work if the source is not copy protected. Make sure you have a writable (or rewritable) DVD with sufficient space available in the DVD tray (closed) and put your tape to dub in the VCR.
Press Setup on the remote and navigate down (up/down arrows) to Recording and press OK. Then select Dubbing Mode in the next menu level and press OK. When the Option menu opens, highlight VCR to DVD and press OK. Press Setup to exit this menu. Choose a recording mode using REC MODE on the remote. Press Play and then Pause when you reach the point where you want to start the recording (press quickly if you want to dub the whole tape; you will lose a few seconds while the dubbing starts so include 5 seconds extra if starting later in the tape). Then press Dubbing on the remote. The duplication will start. Press Stop when you reach the end of the section to record.
I hope this helps.
Cindy Wells (only the Setup and Rec Mode buttons do not have a matching button on the front of the unit. The later steps (setting up the start point, starting the Dub and stopping it) can be done with the remote or the buttons on the unit.)
First, make sure the device you want to connect with your remote is turned on, whether that's the television `, DVD player, VCR player, etc. Now aim the Innovage remote at the device. Press the button on the remote control that corresponds to the device (TV,DVD etc.). Now, press and hold the SET button on the remote control until the LED light on the remote control holds a steady red.
Enter the 4-digit code for your device by pressing the number keys on the remote control (see list below). When you press the fourth digit, the LED light should turn off. This means the remote and the device are "speaking" to each other. Press the OK button to store the code.
If the LED light blinks three times and then remains a solid red, the Innovage remote doesn't recognize the code for your device. Verify the correct code, then go through the programming steps again.
You need to release the timer to access the VCR. Press the Timer Set button on the remote or the Stop/Eject button on the recorder. Then press the VCR button.
Please note: the scheduled recording will not run as programmed unless you press the Timer Set on the remote again. (The timer locks the VCR until the scheduled ON time.) The DVD player is controlled separately and becomes the default unit.
I have found this to be a problem with my Magnavox MWD2205. It seems to be a problem that Magnavox (actually FUNAI CORP.) can't seem to understand and fix on their machines.
1. Pick up your remote and press the video button.
2. Press the DVD button.
3. Press the Video button.
4. Press the DVD button.
That simple. This usually works but no guarantee.
Also check on the back of you player and see what cable you have connected. Often times S-Video will be plugged in and so VCR won't function. Or VCR composite video (the little yellow round port) will be plugged in and so your digital DVD won't function either. Make sure that whatever media format you choose that your ports correspond with the chosen format.
All you should have to do is press the dvd button on your remote to go to the dvd player. Then press the vcr button to go back to the cable tv, if it is hooked up the same way as mine. And you can tell if it is by putting in a vhf tape and you can start watching it play. Otherwise you will need to press the input button on your tv remote until you see the vcr or dvd main screen. from there press the dvd button on your remote for the dvd player or the vcr button for your vhf. After you are done with watching your movies and wish to go back to the cable or tv programs use the tv remote and press input until the shows come back on
My remote is not working. When I press a button, I get the following message on my unit: U12, U30, SET #, CHK REMOTE #, or RC #. What can I do to fix this?
The message displayed means that the remote control and unit are not communicating and the remote needs to be programmed. To program the remote, press and hold the same number that is displaying on the unit and the [ENTER] or [OK] button for more than 2 seconds. For example, if the unit displays “SET 2”, press and hold  and [ENTER] or [OK] for more than 2 seconds.
has your remote control got a AV button on if so then press this till AV 3 if your video has 2 scarts at back and av jacks in front if your remote has not got AV button press the ch- key till you see AV3 on desplay.
If you still have the user manual refer to this.
hope all goes well
