Question about Harman Kardon CDR2 2-Disc CD Recorder

1 Answer

Recording from a Digital Source (computer)

I am trying to record from Computer Audio Jack via Coax cable into Digital In on CDR2. I press Record, then Play. Record light continues to flash with no recording taking place. Connecting to headphones confirms signal is coming in. Ideas on why no recording? It is digital, correct?
Also, manual says press Auto/Manual button for Auto. That is the Speed button, and does not offer Auto choice.
Appreciate any help.

    OK, I'm an idiot.....I assumed that computers were digital. Next stupid question(s)...How do you find out if it is or not? How do you set it to 2-ch PCM?

Your computer audio output is definatley digital, yes? If so, make sure it is set to 2-channel PCM digital output, not 5,1 Dolby digital surround sound output. Auto / manual on the unit is for track marks to be inserted during recording. If you google the manual is out there or I can email it.

    Depends on the software for your soundcard. Look in windows device manager and note what it says under soundcard. If your soundcard was added after purchase,check the manufacturer's website.

Need to know step by step instructions 0n how to record from my tv to my vcr including plug ins


I am assuming you wish to record what is playing on your TV to the VCR and not just asking how to record on a VCR, which is much easier, just put your cable from your antenna/cable box on the vcr and pick a channel from antenna or use channel 3 or 4 for cable box and press record. To watch TV with or without recording connect VCR output (Either coax or Composite) to same type input on the TV. If this is your question, then comment if you have trouble and I will get more detailed. This is a good video on doing this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zgb7uoLIaQE

So if you want to record what is playing on your TV to the VCR, you must have a TV OUT on the TV. The only types of TV OUT that I have seen that would match to a VCR are either coax or RCA.

If the TV OUT is coax just connect one end of coax cable to the TV OUT on the TV and connect the other end to the Antenna/Cable IN on the VCR. Play the program on the TV and record on the VCR usually on either channel 3 or 4. Unless you have the VCR set up to play on another TV you will just have to use trial and error (record on one channel and playback on TV to see if you recorded anything, is so that is right channel, if not, then try the other one.) to find out which.

So, on to recording the signal from a TV on a VCR. If the TV OUT is Composite (RCA jacks, yellow, red, and white or black) you will need some RCA (Composite) cables. They may be labeled patch cords or dubbing cables at the store. That is if you can find them. I don't know if they are still being sold as a video accessory. If not just use RCA audio cords.

There will be two plugs on each end for mono sound recording and three for stereo sound recording. You will have to have audio or L & R audio, and video OUT on your TV and audio or L & R audio, and video IN on your VCR. Plug the yellow cable end into the video OUT on your TV and the yellow on the other end into the video IN on your VCR. Do the same for audio. I have always seen yellow as the color for video, but audio is sometimes white and sometimes black, and in stereo audio right is usually red, but left can be either white or black. With a little luck the cable plugs and TV and VCR IN & OUT jacks will match in color. If sound is mono the is nothing to get wrong. If audio is stereo the worst that can happen is the sound for right side will play on the left and sound for the left side will play on the right. As long as red is used for right it should be correct.

If there is only one set of input jacks on the VCR, the VCR input will probably need to be set to 'Line In'. If there are multiple sets of input jacks they should be labeled 'Input 1', 'Input 2', etc.. The VCR input setting will need to be set to the input you plugged the RCA cables into. The jacks you plugged cable ends into should be labeled. The setting for input on the VCR and TV should match the label on that device.

Now turn on the TV and put it on what you want to record. Do this before it comes on if you want to record all of it. Having set the VCR on 'Line In' or on the correct input, just press record on the VCR. Leave the TV on while recording.

As long as the TV is on and going to play something you want to record, you can set the timer on the VCR to record it, but instead of setting a channel you will choose either 'Line In' or the input number you are using.

This should always work to record a show on the TV when the signal is coming in through a coax cable from an antenna or cable box. But there are some TVs that only send that signal to the TV Out jacks. So if you are watching something from another source, like another VCR, a DVD player, or a video camera on TV on the TV and try to record that you will only record the incoming signal from the antenna or cable box.

In that case just connect the other VCR, the DVD or the camera to the recording VCR and play it on the one using the OUT jacks and record on the VCR using the Input jacks. This should make a better recording too. You can see what is happening by using the OUT jacks on the VCR and connecting the cable from them to the IN jacks on the TV and selecting the 'Line In' or 'Input 1, 2 etc.' matching where you plugged the cable from the VCR in on the TV.

Summary:
Device playing what you want to record is the: SOURCE
1. Using RCA dubbing cables plug them into the OUT jacks on the source and the IN jacks on the VCR.
2. Set the VCR input to the setting that matches the label on the jacks in which the RCA cables are plugged.
3. Play the program on the source and press record on the VCR to begin to record it.
Note: Leave the TV on if that is the source.

If you have any questions I assume I will get a notification if you leave a comment and I will be happy to answer.

Hope this helps. Good Luck!,

I can't find the drivers for my Olympus Digital voice recorder VN-2000PC. What can I do? I can't tranfers my audio files to my PC.


Do you need the software/drivers for the VN-2000PC or the VN-2100PC? The software for the VN-2100PC is available here: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_support_downloads.asp?id=1270 . Select your OS and you'll find the software.

The VN-2000PC doesn't connect to the computer via a USB port. To transfer your files to a computer, connect the earphone jack to the line In (blue) jack of the computer with a 3.5mm to 3.5 mm audio patch cable. Use a program like Audacity to record the audio track during playback. Make sure to set the Audio input to Line In. (In Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound. Under Sound, click Manage Audio Devices. Then select the Recording tab and set the input device.) Then set the recording device in the software as well. Click the Record button in the software and then start the play back on your VN-2000PC. You should see a flat line for a bit then see a wave form start. If the line stays flat, you haven't set the Line In device properly.

I hope this helps.

I have a Goldstar VCR and I want to record a tv program using it. How do I do it?


Most Goldstar VCRs only have an analog tuner. (TVs do not often have an option to output their video to another device.)

So first what is the source of the TV program? If it is an OTA analog or CATV cable. Set up the VCR normally by connecting the incoming signal cable to the VCR and then use the coax out to the TV. Scan for channels and set the VCR to record the desired program. (Either use the timed record or one touch record method.)

If your source is digital, you will need a set top box (either a digital to analog converter or cable box). To split an incoming OTA signal between your TV and the converter box, you can use a switch or a splitter. (A splitter will give lower signal strength to both the TV and the converter box.)

Depending on the box, you can either connect a coax cable from the box to the VCR and then to the TV or composite video from the box to the VCR. If you use coax, set the converter to channel 3 or channel 4 and record that channel. Otherwise set the VCR to record Line 1.

To record, put in a tape with sufficient space available with an intact safety tab. For One Touch Recording, set the VCR to the desired channel and tape speed. Then press Rec. Press several time for a timed recording. For Timed recording, press Menu > Program. Press Select and move through the list to program day to record, the start/stop time, and channel, etc. When done, press Menu to save the setting. The timer light should come on (most VCRs will turn off).

I hope this helps.

Hip shot: No one let's you record digital audio onto analog equipment (yet).

On looking at Page 26 of the manual, that is verified. (See the Notes). Use only the analog audio and it will probably work for you. The A/D switch decides which you will use.

Sony IC Recorder ICD B600


To transfer recordings from the Sony ICD-B600 to Windows first buy a Radio Shack #42-2497 cable. Connect the cable from the recorder headphone jack to the computer microphone jack. In Windows XP follow the path: start, All Programs, Accessories, Entertainment, Sound Recorder. This small window will allow you to record 60 seconds of sound to a file. Get Article #82215 from the Microsoft web site. It will tell you how to make extended recordings. I was able to record 45 minutes continuously. The recorder is turned on by moving the 'HOLD' switch down. The recorder is turned off by moving the 'HOLD' switch up and waiting 2.5 seconds. Have fun.

Can't record from my digital cable tv to my sylvania dvd/vcr ..........


Depending on the unit your going to need to check the back of the DVR for video out ports... My DVR has VID/HDMI/VCR/1394/SaTa and IR ports I use the VCR out to record with... because on my DVR I can say "Play this movie... now record to VCR and it will only play the movie on those VCR ports not on my TV so all I gotta do is hit record on my VCR... As long as you have audio/video jacks on the VCR. Then even some have it blocked so you can't do that... depends on model. So try recording on the VCR using the video ports instead of the COAX cable.
