Re: Recording

I think it should be possible. As long as you don't exceed the resolution of the DVD player. It should work fine. Just keep DVD player in Rec / Pause mode then hit Rec button when you want to record a clip, then pause it again. That should work fine. Have a good night. Jay

I recently purchased an LG RH397D dvd recorder> Ihave now discovered taht it will not receive the new free view channels and I need a HD set top box. How to I connect the set top box to the dvd...

Hi, The set top box will more than likely have two coaxial connectors ( threaded/ribbed pieces of metal ) coming out of the back. also three R.C.A. connectors-these will be smooth and be colored yellow red and white. one of the coax connectors will say " IN FROM ANT> or CABLE IN) the other ( OUT TO T.V. ) hook up your dvd recorders " ANTENNA " input to the set top box's ANTENNA output. If your D.V.D. recorder doesn't have an antenna input then hook up the recorders audio/video input to the set top box's audio/video output. then you should be good to go. If you buy a H.D.T.V. tuner to receive FREE H.D. programming it may be possible to hook up to recorder with H.D.M.I. cables.( those connections resemble slots ) I hope this has been of some assistance, good luck, Prodzilla.

Hi. I have recently purhased an Acoustic Solutions DVDRW300 DVD Recorder. I have no instruction manual and have no idea how to set it up or work it!! Please help as im totally useless!!

I am assuming that you want to INPUT your TV/Cable Box to your DVDRW, and have the DVDRW then be able to OUTPUT to the TV.
Here's what you need to do:
1. Locate the OUTPUTS of your TV/Cable box at the back of your set. There should either be the RCA jacks (Yellow/White/Red), S-Video, VGA, DVI or HDMI . Make sure that they are OUTPUTS. It'll probably say TV-out or just out.

2. Locate the INPUTS of your DVDRW. Similarly, it should either be the RCA jacks (Yellow/White/Red), S-Video, VGA, DVI or HDMI. Ensure that they are INPUTS.

3. Match up the outputs to the inputs. Now, I have listed the OUTPUT/INPUTS going from lowest quality to highest quality. So let's say your TV has RCA, S-Video and HDMI outputs, and your DVDRW has only RCA and S-Video. HDMI is ruled out, unless you get a converter (which is pretty pricey). Choose which one, and buy/use the right cables.

4. Here are the connections for each type of OUT/IN. (TV/Cable >>>>> DVDRW)
  • RCA (Yellow/White/Red) >>>>> RCA (Yellow/White/Red)
  • S-Video + RCA (White/Red) >>>>> S-Video + RCA (White/Red)
  • VGA + RCA (White/Red) >>>>> VGA + RCA (White/Red)
  • DVI + RCA (White/Red) >>>>> DVI+ RCA (White/Red)
  • HDMI >>>>> HDMI
5. Connecting the DVDRW back to the TV. So now, you can record whatever is playing live on your TV. But you also want to play things from your DVDRW on your TV. Check the OUTPUTS of the DVDRW. It should have either the same jacks as the INPUTS. Check the INPUTS of the TV.
6. Follow Step 4, and 5. Note that for connections, you are going from the OUT of the DVDRW to one of the INs of the TV. Keep track of what INPUT on the TV you are connecting to.
Voila! Let's test it, though. Now, turn your TV and DVDRW on. Put in a DVD (a movie perhaps) in your DVDRW. On your TV, switch the channel to the INPUT channel you used. You should see your movie. If not, try another INPUT on your TV.
If it's fine, then let's try recording a TV show. Switch the channel on your TV to whatever you want to watch, say Cartoon Network. Put in a blank DVD in your player/recorder. Hit record on the player. Let it record about 2-3 minutes, and stop recording.
Switch the TV back to the INPUT which works, and hit play on the DVDRW. You should see what you recorded.
Hope this helps!

When I switch on the unit, i can hear the sound but there is no picture

Hi! Welcome to Fixya!

If you are unable to view video on your television set, the issue may be that the TV's video input selection does not match.

The TV input source must match how the device for example DVD player is connected to the TV. At the back of Samsung's LN40A650A HDTV are three HDMI inputs, plugs for component input, an antenna input for the DTV receiver and a VGA input. Please check on what port the device is plug.

To correct the issue, use the TV's remote control and change the video input selection.
  • Press the Menu button on the remote control and navigate to TV Input
  • Only ones that are actually connected are highlighted and available.
  • If there are multiple device connected please make sure you select the device you want to connect.
You may also check if all cables are properly connected.

Thank you.

I have a Panasonic Tx l37S10B tv set, & a PanasonicDVD recorder,DMR-EX768EB. To ensure I receive true HD i have bought a Humax Fox T2 hd Digital receiver. I use these items to receive & record HD...


You didn't fully expain how each device is connected to the others. I don't think you have this set up correctly. Your DVD cannot record in HD so there is no point sending an HD signal to it - it can't process it. This is how I would set it up:

1. Install a 2-way splitter on the input cable
2. Connect output 1 from the splitter to the Humax receiver
3. Connect the Humax receiver to the TV with an HDMI cable
4. Connect output 2 from the splitter to the DVD
5. Connect the DVD to the TV with SCART cable.

This will enable you to watch HDTV via the digital receiver and also provide an input from source (dish/cable) to your DVD player so that you can record.

If you've already set it up this way then it should work. I suspect you've connected the Humax to the DVD and TV and also the DVD to the TV.

Please try this setup and post back if you need further assistance.

I'm simply looking for the most efficient way to hook up my HD-TV with HDMI inputs to both my cable box (with HDMI inputs) and my DVD player/recorder so that I can record from the TV I watch.  ...

The way you have it hooked up right now will not work unless you have a coaxial out on your cable box going to the dvd recorder. Even then, picture quality will be severely degraded. The best way to do it is to leave your cable box hooked up to your TV via HDMI and connect your dvd recorder to your cable box via component video if your dvd recorder has a component video input. If it doesn't, then just use the composite video input. That way your picture quality will be better and you will still be able to record with the TV off.
