Question about Emerson EWV401 S-VHS VCR

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!!

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

Trying to hook vcr up to an emerson telivision


Are you trying to connect with coaxial, or RCA jacks, If you have the Yellow, white, and red jacks on both you Emerson TV, and your whatever brand VCR, all you have to do is connect using the color to color ports. Sometimes the ports on tv or vcr are only mono, so instead of having 3 jacks there will only be 2. Yellow for video, and red and/or white for Audio. If you are using coaxial cables, which aren't hardly on the newer models. This also depends if you want to just playback or record as well. If you want to record with your vcr, you need to put the source coaxial,(From wall), and put that to the input of your VCR, it may be in the input of your tv, so you would take that out and put it in the vcr, and you will need a separate coaxial cable to put from your VCRs output jacks into the input of your tv. That would also put your input channel on 3 or 4. If you could tell me the way you wanted to connect, I could tell you better. Hope this helps.

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
