Question about Philips VR550 VHS VCR

1 Answer

Phillips VCR 550/07

I have recently bought the above, but can't figure out how to record more than one item on the same day without coming out of the record set-up screen and going back in.

On my old VCR I could set up many recordings on the same day from the same screen.

Can you do this on the Phillips VCR550/07?

does this make sense?

Calmly and relaxed, read the operator's manual to realize the exact proceedure or one-day, multi-time-setting. Upon reading the context will indicate the component's ability and weather the programing is to be direct component button pressing or through the remote control.

Set up VCR for recording with Satellite TV

You will not be able to record satellite (digital signal) onto a VCR (analog signal) without what is called a scan converter. This is the only way to do it with your current machine. It can be done but the cost of doing it properly will come close to using a different recording method.

I need to record a cable show on to a vcr? how do you do it

I doubt you can do what you are asking. There are technical reasons, based on changes in television technology. Unless you understand the issues/technology, you would not be able to answer my questions.
If the output signal of the Cable TV box was NTSC (without copy protection), then you would be able to record the program on an NTSC VCR. Very unlikely at this time.
I suggest you buy a Digital Video Recorder, like the one Channel Master makes, and record your shows via a TV antenna. Over The Air OTA DVR 16GB Channel Master

I have an RCA VCR model VR651HF that still works great. I can record shows without a problem as long as I'm not trying to watch a dvd. I recently bought a Sony dvd player model DVP SR200. I have my cable...

The sequence should go from the wall to the VCR then the VCR to the RF modulator then from the RF modulator to the TV and this should allow you to record a TV program and watch a DVD at the same time.

Bought new samsung dvd/vcr. have an older admiral tv with just a cable hole. this is the second tv on a dish network, so this tv only has a cable, the box is in the living room. so how do I hook this...

The easiest way to make it work is to:
1- run your cable into your new VCR to CATV IN.

2-Your VCR should have come with a short length of cable. Connect it from the OUT jack to the TV.

3- Set the TV to either channel 3 or 4- you need to check the VCR manual to see which channel you have to use. Some VCR's have a small switch labeled "channel select"- if so, set it and your TV to the same channel... your choice.

4- Leave your TV on the channel you set above all the time. You will now change your channels using your VCR. You will be able to record whatever you are watching.

Memorex MVD4544 VCR will not record

Take the unit back to the store and exchange it for an other unit of the same. The likelyhood of two units not working is very slim, and good luck with your new unit.

Change recording speed

The only solution to this problem is to buy a new remote from the manufacturer. Aftermarket remotes that I have looked at: RCA, PHILLIPS, SONY, etc do not have a speed select button for the VCR. (which IMHO is stupid) Come on aftermarket people- it cant be that hard to program a speed select button!

HELP! I can't figure out how to Connect my Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo to my older TV

Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.
