EWV404 PROBLEM WITH "l1" INPUT

Hello. I have a EWV404 Emerson VCR, and only TWICE before have I been able to record regular cable TV with it using my regular cable remote, NOT the Emerson remote. This is especially important, since I want to record shows on HBO and Showtime, which are on channels close to 200. Emerson's remote only goes up to 120.

I have no idea how I got it to work before, but I can't do it again. The L1 and L2 channels don't work. I DID IT BEFORE BY PRESSING L1, BUT IT DOESN'T WORK ANYMORE.

Does anyone have any ideas??

THANKS!!

My Emerson VCR


Hi, Since your "new cable box" is directly connected to your TV via the A/V (Video 1), it is not attached in anyway to the VCR, hence the VCR is not receiving any "tv shows." What you need to do is remove the A/V connection of the new cable box and put them into the A/V INput of your VCR. You may then continue using Ch 3 on your TV to watch your VCR and also be able to record tv shows. The only drawback is that the VCR must also be powered on to watch tv shows. It is also possible to use the A/V OUTput of the VCR and connect them to the TV A/V INput (where the cable box used to be connected). Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

We recently connected to Direct TV...I want to transfer some old western TV Shows I recorded on my Direct TV DVR Recorder to VCR Tape. I was told by the people at Direct TV that I would need to contact you...


You can try this: Connect your DirecTv to VCR with Red/White/Yellow cables. Then the VCR to your TV with the same type of cables. Make sure the VCR is set to the video input, not the tuner. Turn your TV to the correct video input. Get the program ready on the DVR as if you were going to watch it. Press record on the VCR and then play on the DVR. At the end of the program, press stop on both. You may have a problem with the video recording properly. Some stations broadcast with copyright protection.

What does otr do?


OTR stands for One Touch Record. On the remote or VCR will be a button with it on, set the channel you want to record and press it. The VCR will start recording. If you press it again it will add a time often in jumps of 30 minutes each time it is pressed.

I have the emerson vcr model ev467 and it has hardly been used. Went to record a tv program today and when i went to play back the tape, nothing was on it. All indicators were on, so i thought it was...


do you have a cable box connected. If you do you have to tell the vcr to record on channel 3 or 4 (whichever you have the tv tune to regularly) then put the cable box on the channel you want to record the show on

Hos do you program the vcr to recorde a show withthe cable box


You need to connect the cable box to the VCR using a SCART lead. Note which input you connect it to on the VCR (usually called AV1 or 2, or L1 or L2) To record your show, put the cable box onto the desired channel, then set the vcr to the correct input. (on the remote there will be a button marked input select or AV or AUX) Now when you record, it will record whatever the cable box is showing. :)

Sony VHS model no: SLV-SE710G isn't recording now that we have a freeview box. It just keeps changing back to L1 whenever i try to record anything!! I only want to record channels 1,2,3,4 !! HELP!!


Its hard to work out without looking at your cables. I assume the problem started when the freeview box got set up. I would guess that the aerial cable is now in the set top box instead of the vcr as the vcr sounds like it is unable to record when there's no signal (a common feature) so there shouldn't be a fault with the vcr,

just unplug the aerial from the set top box & plug it back into the vcr. Ch 1 2 3 4 should be back on vcr but set top box wont have any Ch.

most set top boxes have an aerial output, so you'll need another aerial cable, plug this into the aerial input on the vcr & ch 1 2 3 4 will be there but these will be analog (if your area has stopped analog transmission thats the prob rite there)

If you plug the matching cables from the set top box into L1 on vcr you'll be able to record digital tv as L1 use a signal from another tuner eg set top box, dvd player whereas the vcr channels 1 2 3 4 use the vcr's built in analog tuner. so it shouldn't be a biggie another cable should fix it,

Hope this is helpful, ask if you need more info

Panasonic PV-9451 VCR, When setting up the VCR to record a channel, the only channel options are Channel 02 thru 25 and L1 And L2. What has to be reset with the digital cable input??


You will need to use L1 or L2 (one is probably on the front of the VCR, and the other on the back, they should be labeled).

YOu need to plug the digital receiver's output into L1, or L2, and set the VCR to record the one you're using. Then set it to the time you want, and then set the channel on the digital box tho the one you want.

One Channel, One time. (or recurring daily, if your VCR allows daily recording from L1,2)

I am trying to connect the vcr to the tv with a cable box


There are two ways to connect your equipment.

1) Connect the cable box antenna output (may be labeled "out to TV", "antenna out", "catv out" or even something else, but the key is it will say "out") to the VCR's antenna input. From the VCR's antenna output (out to tv, etc.) you connect to the TV's antenna input. For these connections you use RF cables, the kind with something called F-connectors on the ends. (These cables are available with screw-on or push-on type plugs. Use the screw-on type which makes a more reliable connection.) Set your VCR and TV both on the cable box output channel. This will be either 3 or 4, depending on how the box is set up. With this setup you can record whatever program is coming from the box by having the VCR record on the box output channel. Unfortunately, you can't record shows that are on different cable channels unless you'll be there to change channels on the box. (There are some VCRs that can control a cable box to switch channels, but I don't believe your model does.) You also can't watch one channel while recording a different one.

2) (This won't work if your TV doesn't have a video input available.) Connect the cable box to the VCR and the VCR to the TV with audio/video cables. These are the ones with RCA plugs, color-coded red and white for right and left channel sound and yellow for video. Set the VCR to line input and the TV to the input you have the VCR connected to. This connection setup gives a better picture and sound quality that the RF connection described above. You still have the same restrictions on recording, though.

Sounds a little confusing, I know. Just remember that inputs connect to outputs and you'll be set up in no time.

Dubbing from VCR to VCR


you should just have to plug the first vcr using the RCA jacks,(yellow,red,white). into the second vcr. so the output from the first vcr to the input of the other. then if you want to watch it while its recording though its not necassary you just plug the video/audio out of the second vcr into the tv. So the first vcr you play the tape in and the second you put the blank tape in and press record.
Thats all there is to it.
Let me know how it goes.
Thanks,
Lee
