Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player

Channel setup for VCR recording

This is really a vcr question. I have a Magnavox DVD/VCR combo unit and cable. When I try to do an OTR or timer recording I am able to get everything set up except the channel that I want to record. It will only go to channel 4 or 36 and it also displays L1 and L2. If you can answer this please make it as simple as possible.

WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO INTO SETUP AND DO A 'CHANNEL SET' EITHER AUTOMATIC (WHICH DID NOT WORK ON MINE) OR MANUAL AND ENTER EACH AND EVERY CHANNEL YOU WANT TO RECORD. THIS IS TIME CONSUMING BUT THAT IS THE ONLY WAY IT WILL WORK - IF YOURS WORKS WITH 'AUTOMATIC' YOU GOT IT MADE

Would like to record from my tv to my magnavox dvd/vcr combo box


If I understand your request right, You do not have cable or satellite box.
You can not record from your TV. You use the TV as a monitor from the dvd/vcr combo box. What the box receives is what shows on the TV. So you will have to have a digital convertor hooked to the (antenna in) dvd/vcr combo box, (antenna out to the tv antenna in) Depending on the antenna you are using that is on the other end of your cable-in coax connection this will hook to your antenna in on the digital convertor box. If your cable is hooked up and operating correctly and directly to the tv that is digital ready you probabbly have a good picture. When the vhf/uhf signal was transmitted you could go from the dvd/vcr to the tv with no problem. But now that the signal is digital and the tv is set for digital the dvd/vcr will not pass a digital signal to the tv. Best suggestion, you have to get a digital dvd/vcr receiver. If you have more question please contact me.

I can't setup channels for Magnavox tv/vcr.


Good luck! We are taking our unit back. We are both professionals dealing with multiple intense things, then we get home and can't figure this stupid POS out.

Can get dvd/vcr to work but vcr won't record


first did you program the vcr to match your cable channels ...that needs to be done on most vcrs/dvd/ combos and second if you have a cable box on your tv you still need to run a coax cable from the cable box to the in of the dvd player and out of the dvd player to the tv.

Magnavox DV220mw9 won't record from Tv, hard to connect


check out this diagram, paying close attention to the audio video cable hookups.

assume the cable tv box represents the converter box

you are going to come out of the converter box audio and video outputs into the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo audio and video inputs.

Then out of the new magnavox dvd/vcr combo outputs to the inputs on the tv if it has such inputs. The TV will have to operate on the video input 1 or 2 if the tv has such a thing, use the remote for the tv to adjust the input signal to line in 1 or 2 depending on what it has.

If the tv has no coaxial input or audio video inputs then you might have to use an adapter, you can get these from radio shack.

You say it will not record from the tv, but in all actuality the dvd vcr combo is getting the signal from the converter box not the tv, do you understand what I mean here?

So the dvd vcr combo gets input from the converter box so you will have to set it to view signal from the line input you have plugged in from the converter box. line 1 or 2 or whatever the input is.

the tv will have to be set on the line input to view the signal from the dvd vcr combo.

That is as easy as I can put it. Study the diagram closely. You will see what I mean.

DVD/VCR Combo


your model is "tuner free" that means it does not have the RF screw in connector. Buy one that has a tuner, preferably both ATSC(USA digital) and NTSC(USA analog)

Dish Pro record code for Mag combo


ZNREL, I've done this with Dish Pro before. Setup the Dish remote to control the Mag combo in the VCR position. Press the SAT button and select the guide. Go to the program in the guide and select it. The "record this program" routine should pop up, set it up. Here's the key, make sure the Dish remote has the VCR button selected and that the remote is placed where it can "see" the Mag combo. At the set time, the Dish remote will change the DishPro to the proper channel and then issue s "record" command via infrared to the Mag combo to start recording. DishNet has all of the device codes to their remotes downloadable from their site.
