The coax output is just a passthrough. You need to go to the TV through the RCA output even if you have to go through a VCR or other component.

I have just bought a new PD-DVR100 DVD recorder and am trying to use it but when i press setup nothing else shows for me to make any settings.


I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in using the DVD Recorder. Based on the information you have provided, please follow the below troubleshooting steps and check the operation:

Please make sure that the connections are secure and proper. (You have not mentioned the type of connection that you're using to connect the Recorder to the TV. You may use Component, S-Video or Composite Video connection to setup the Recorder with the TV).

Please make sure that you have selected proper input on the TV to view the setup screen of the Recorder on the TV screen. (Most of the TVs have an INPUT button or TV/VIDEO button to change the input. If you're not sure with the input selection method, you may refer the manual of the TV or get back to me with the exact model # of the TV so that I can help you with INPUT SELECTION)

Turn off both TV and Recorder and check the operation.

Unplug the Recorder from wall outlet for more than two minutes to perform a Power resetting and check the operation.

Try connecting the Recorder to the TV using a different cable.

If the issue persists, please get back to me with more details about the issue like the type of connection and model # of the TV etc.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarification on the provided steps.


Thanks for understanding.

Connectding audio/video cables when you have a cable box and sound bar with dvd player


How To Connect a DVD Recorder to a Television:
1.If you want to use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source (Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
2.To use composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
3.To use S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder and the input on the TV.
5. To use Component Video cables and RCA audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
6. Now that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording and viewing.
7. Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
8. If you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to change channels and record.
9. If you made connections using either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
10. If you have a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.

I have a DVD/VCR recording device and I need to hook up my camcorder to record videos to a DVD to submit to an organization for my son to receive a service dog. I can hook up camcorder straight to TV...


To record to the DVD, connect the A/V cables from the JVC GR-D347U to the A/V In on the DVD recorder. Since the DVD already plays to the TV, you just have to keep the TV set to that input. Put a blank DVD in the recorder. Set the DVD recorder to record on from the appropriate Line In (input) with the DVD as the target recording media. To make sure that all of the devices are on and receiving the output from the camera and DVD recorder, start playback on the GR-D347U and check that it displays on the TV. Forward the tape in the camera to the point where you want to record to the DVD. Stop playback. Press REC for the DVD recorder and restart your playback. Press stop for both the DVD recorder and then the camera when the desired video segment has been played back.

See page 21 of the manual for the GR-D347U. Treat the DVD recorder as a VCR for this situation. The manual is available here: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/82266/Jvc-Gr-D347u.html?page=21#manual .

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the details of the DVD recorder for more information on connecting the unit in this daisy chain.

(Many recorders have at least two composite video Line In inputs. That's why you need select the correct one for recording.)

We have a tv that has only the cable jack in the back but cant get my dvr to show on the TV...what do I need to do?


If the only connection on the TV is for a coax cable, then you'll need a small box you can get at most any store that has electronic parts. It lets you play DVD and VCR to older TVs like yours.
I'm not sure what they call this, but it sells for about $20 ± a few dollars.

Connecting protron dvd to dish TV


I hope you have at least 2 sets of RCA jacks for (1) the Dish receiver and (2) the DVD player. Run 2 sets of R/W/Y cables to the TV. Done. Or use S-video for a better picture instead of yellow.
If you only have one composite input on TV (possible) then either buy a 2-way or more switch for the composite signal (R=right sound W=left Y=composite or S-video instead of composite) or you can instead pass the signal through the DVD recorder on the RCAs but the DVD will be on whenever anything is on. I assume you do not have a Dish 111 with only RF output but the same could be done for just the wimpy RF, just different switch. So there will be 3 RCA cables from Dish to a recorder and 3 then to the TV. Since you do not have a recorder, then go back to the switch or find another TV input.
Ten years, hum, you may not have had composite/S-video inputs and would have to use RF only--you did not say what TV was.

Here's How:

Direct tv hdbox & Plasma TV & DVD SSound system & DVD recorder


Need to make sure you have the red,white,and yellow rca connection cables ran from the samsung dvd player to the red,white,yellow input on the back of the dvd recorder. Once you do that make sure you put your dvd recorder on line 1 input. If you look closely on the back of your recorder it should say line 1 input. If your recorder isn't on that input you can put the recorder on line 1 input by using dvd recorder remote and pushing the input button. Make sure you don't push the tv input button the dvd recorder remote there should be a seperate input button or a way to toggle the inputs on the recorder. Once you verify all that turn on your tv and go to the input on your tv that you watch the dvd recorder on and you should see what your recording on the tv.
