Question about GoVideo VR3845 DVD Recorder/VCR

Degraded Signal quality


Have a GoVideo DVD player, & using RG6 coax, the signal is degraded, causing the picture to be fuzzy.

When I bypass the DVD player, the picture is clear, so the signal strength is good.

Is Govideo out of business, & can you help me?

I went from cable to uhf, How do I program my TV. channel to make my TV. and DVR4300 to work?

It should not affect you menu at all. When you get a settings menu you just switch from Cable to Air and then have it do it\'s auto scan routine. I cut the cord from Comcast to HDTV as soon as I got a house and could install an antenna. The picture quality is MUCH better then the crappy signal Comcast was sending me which always broke up. I get a solid signal from my stations which are 12-33 miles away. The DVR should be similar. My Samsung TV will actually simultaneously scan for both kinds but it\'s unusual.

I am trying to connect a new Toshiba SDK 1000 dvd player to replace an older GoVideo that worked fine as a player but lost its ability to communicate with remote (bad sensor, I think). I get picture and...

Is the TV PAL or NTSC? The symptom you are experiencing is what would happen if you are trying to play back a NTSC signal on a PAL TV or vica versa. If you have a scart connection on theTV then use a scart lead to connect from the DVD player to the TV. Set the DVD player for RGB output which is independent of PAL & NTSC.

Are you truly free? If so, then answer the

Hello. Your digital TV is all set up to recieve the digital signal that is now the standard signal coming into your home. The old analog signal is history. If you still want to use your VHS/DVD recorder you will have to get a signal conversion box, at your local walmart or radio shack. This will take the new digital signal and convert it so your old analog VHS/DVD can process it properly. Joe

please rate my answer as very helpful....and free. thanks. Joe

No color and no audio

yes , this is why , on your dvd there is a "yellow for video" output on it ,and then there is a "red output jack for right audio"
and then there is a "white output jack for left audio" does your tv have these inputs?

the blue , green and red "RCA JACKS" are called " composite video" which seperates the colors of given video

the red and white RCA jacks are for right and left audio and are required when using composite or the yellow video jack

there is also a "s-video" connection that is one cable but seperates the colors for better picture quality ( dvd player only)( vcr and tuner do not work with this)

then there is a optical or coax digital connection for a reciever that decodes the connections audio digital signals for dolby digital surround sound

Dvdro5 this is as close as I have found. Different brand names but basically the same. If you are copying home movies use the av outputs from the vcr to the av inputs of the vcr, then the av outputs of the ILO to the tv - while recording from your tapes. I read somewhere if it is macrovision protected you can bypass it by using the coax out from your vcr to the Antenna in on the ILO and then pick up that signal in your TUNER of the ILO. I have had good success with both, I prefer the av if I can get that to work, better picture, but sometimes it won't record that way, esp old tapes, so try the ant in (coax) if the av doesn't work. Use + R discs or +RW discs (sony brand is the best +R but it doesn't matter on the +RW's)

Not Clear

I get that effect when i use a very long coaxial cable. I reccomend using a fresh one. or you could connect a signal booster to it.

Getting sound from DVD player but not a picture

Are you sure all cables are secure in the back and that all cables are in their appropriate place?

It could also be other variables dealing with the actual signal from the cable company. I have had an experience with an unshielded coax cable that was tweaking out due to a thunder storm.

Post back after you have checked all cables and also call your cable company to see if there are any problems with the broadcast currently, as that could be a cause.

Best of luck.
