I need to know what hooks on the back of the TV into the mother/sister to provide regular TV. Some sort of converter? Which kind?

The Protron PLTV-32 only has an analog tuner (NTSC). So you need a digital to analog converter to watch OTA programming. A basic d-t-a converter will give you Standard Definition output (480i) (either on the TVs antenna in or the composite in inputs).

Since the TV can show a high definition signal (720p), you could also use an HD tuner set top box. However, these are significantly more expensive than the $40-70 SD converter boxes that were sold for purchase with the government coupon last year. Alternatively you can use a DVR with a tuner as your set top box (computer with a tuner card) to the VGA or DVI inputs on the TV.

I hope this helps.

When recording from vhs tape, and the signal is poor at times, the machine automaticaly stops recording temporarily and resumes when the signal is more stable. how can this feature be disabled?

If you are recording VHS tapes that contain macrovision, and most commercial tapes do, you can't record them with this DVR because it is compliant with the law that says you can't do it. So don't try. Download nearly every movie/tv show from the internet instead.

If you are recording from VHS tapes that you have created yourself from TV sources, or from camera, you must stabilize the picture. There are several devices like that. Do a google search on "vhs stabilizer".

Picture is black and white

If you have it connected to the 'antenna input' on your TV, change the channel up or down, and then back to 3/4 as appropriate. Sometimes the signal from the machine does not match exactly what the TV is looking for, but the TV will figure it out after you change the channel up or down. The AFC (automatic frequency control) will then try to re-tune the channel.
If you have it connected using the composite, and r/w audio, then you likely have a problem inside the DVR.

Emerson Remote Control Code difficulties

You Emerson Jumbo may not be able to control all functions of your Protron DVR but only "off" control seems to be an extreme limitation. I checked my Sentry "workalike" and found no codes for Protron.

Lost manual

Here are a few numbers I found for Protron in a Universal Book I have. No promises, but try these and see if they work. They are for a Protron TV the book says, but it won't hurt to try them, right? Good Luck! Hope they work. Cya, Bill Netter
