Re: hooking up

Depends what you're trying to hookup. TV? take coax from tv out to INPUT on back of ilo, setup tuner(selected in source). From VHS? hook up a vcr to another one of the inputs, A/V one the unit. Even the ones on the front will do. Then after going into the record menu and setting up the length/quality settings, then select source to select which input you want to record from and hit record. Try to end it before your alotted time expires and forget about programming it to record something automatically via the time, It never works well, if at all for me. Best bet is +RW's depending on unit. Mine is MU unit and Sony +R's work good for me.

The device unit?U must have DVD/VCR recorder player to record things out of cable tv or other tv signals.Not just a DVD/VCR player.Read ur manual for instruction,u hook up a VCR before right,the same principle.

I'm getting a message "Camcorder not connected. I can't program any recordings

When this recorder reads 'not connected to camcorder' you are simply accessing the recorder's 'DV' input on the front panel of recorder. This 'DV' input is used with DV Camcorders, thus the message.

Simply hit the 'AUX' button on the remote control to access the recorders other inputs. It will cycle between-TUNER>>AV1>>AV2>>DV.

Depending on what you want to access or view and where they are hooked up to the recorder. The "Tuner" will access either your over the air digital channels or your basic cable channels when hooked up through the 'UHF/VHF' input on the rear panel.AV1 is input 1 on the back of the recorder. AV2 is the input on the front of the recorder. DV allows for a Digital Video Camcorder to be hooked up to recorder using a 'Firewire'.

you may have the outputs hooked up correctly however you may need to set the inputs to the selected type of cable you are using. S video 1 cable or video input witch is an rca adapter yellow in color. you will find these setting in the "setup section" on the remote set up button will get you there and then input or source.

JVC DCD Recorder hookup to digital TV

Yep, this recorder is NTSC analog. Sad, too - it was only manufactured in 2006 - they knew about the digital transition then. There is a possible workaround, but it depends on your TV - if your TV has a red, white AND (most importantly) yellow OUT/OUTPUT, then you can hook it to the AV IN on the back of the JVC and record from TV that way. Note: most TV's (even new ones) do not have the yellow video/monitor OUT, even if they have red and white audio OUT's.

Hook ups

use a video splitter for the audio and video, or go out of the DVD player in to the DVR, out of the DVR into the TV (WARNING!!!! Trying to hook a DVD player to any recording device may trigger the copyright protection, causing blue flashes, and distorted pictures)

Hooking it up correctly

If you hook up using the tuner in ILO you will lose digital signal to the HDTV (it will still go thru but only as analog) so... Use a splitter from the antenna coax to the "antenna in", then you can hook Ilo output to the tv inputs. You can watch/record analog through the ILO and still switch back digital non recording on HDTV thru its own separate tuner. Hook up the dvd player outputs to the ILO inputs(use the front ones is easiest) and then select SOURCE, pick corresponding inputs and enter. You can watch/record from other dvds that way but not from copyrighted ones, It will say protected content. I would only hook up dvd player temporarily to record from dvd player, then to watch dvd's just hook it up to HDTV. If you can select progressive scan on player to HD it might be even better picture but I don't have HDTV so I'm not sure how that works. Maybe more at this site: Someone says they are very similar recorders. The front covers are alike i know. Hope this helps.

DVD-R120 hookup for recording

You will have to hook up your recorder directly to your TV or use as a stand alone recorder.
Other possibility is to buy a 2 way video switch. This will allow you to hook up two video machines to the same input jacks on the RCVR. You just swith between the two devices manually.
Radio Shack usually have these input swithches under $30.
