Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Recording Problems Today I bought a Durabrand DVD/CD player and video cassette recorder AD980BD. I can not get it to record from my new Freeview Digital TFT LCD TV (Model GTVL19W17HDF and serial number G00390604891). I have connected the TV to my Durabrand Video recorder/DVD player and can play videos and DVDs. However, I cannot record freeview cannels to my video. I don?t seem to be able to get the freeview channels on my AV/Video channel. Is this usual? Any advice?

Hi.

Yes.
Most tv sets with freeview built in do not allow you to record it.
Check your tv instruction manual to see if it is at all possible.

How can I record a music cassette to a music disc on my Magnavox DVD recorder/ VHS --Model # ZV427MG9


You can't burn a CD-A with the ZV427MG9. The unit will not burn to a CD to play in a CD player.

You may be able to record the audio to a DVD with no video source. Connect your cassette player to the Line In audio ports (L/R) at either the back or front of the unit. Depending on your cassette player, you may need a 3.5 mm M to RCA F/F adapter to connect the RCA audio cable to the cassette player's headphone jack. Do not connect a cable to the video input of the composite input unless you have a video on a camera or something to play back. This means that the recorded video may say "No Signal" or will be black or static. (Note: this may not work with this signal issue.)

Set the unit to record to DVD on L1 or L2, as needed, by pressing Source on your remote. Advance the cassette to where you want to record. Press Rec on the DVD unit and then press Play on your cassette player. If you want to identify tracks, Stop the recording and play back and then press Rec and Play again. You are at risk of having issues with the volume during the recording. Clipping of overly-loud sounds and distortion is possible.

When done, finalize the disc, if desired, to play the disc on other DVD players.

If you want to make an audio CD, you would be better off using a computer and connecting the cassette player to the Line In jack of the computer. You do have to make some adjustments to avoid recording the default Microphone input. Use a program like Audacity or any other audio editing program. Record the signal and divide it into tracks, if needed. Now you can filter out any distortion as well. Then save as a WAV file. Use a different program to burn the WAV files to a CD-A. (This must be burned as a mastered disc; my attempts that worked on an older CD player failed if there were gaps between the tracks. Lots of programs will do this; Roxio Creator is one option.)

The manual for the ZV427MG9 is available here: http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/z/zv427mg9_f7/zv427mg9_f7_dfu_aen.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I live in the United Kingdom and we are in the process, area by area, of converting our TVs from analogue to digital. My area was converted to digital in May. Since when my VCR will not function - it...


If the video does not have a freeview tuner it will not be able to record. There is a solution! All you need to do is get a freeview box, Argos have an Alba model for around £18 at the moment, Connect it via a scart to your video, if it has to scart connectors use the second one, often marked AV2. Then when you want to record, turn the box on to the channel you want to record, set the record timer, but change the channel to AV2 for the recording. That should then record the station, while you watch the other channels. If the VCR has only one scart, you can get a scart switching box, as shown below, from places such as Amazon.

Set up problem


Does this Durabrand combo player actually have an RF output? Almost every unit I've seen today only has audio/video out. No RF out, no tuner for recording. They're meant to work with the TV's AV inputs and some line input source for recording (if it's a recorder at all). There may just be no RF for you to be tuning to.

If the player does in fact have RF out and you can't see it on either channel 3 or 4, take it back to the retailer if you can or contact the service number in the manual. It would have to be a defective unit.

See the manual, page 8:

What are “Recording modes”? for DVD-RW
There are two recording modes available using this
recorder: VR mode and Video mode. When recording to
a DVD-R disc, recordings are always in Video mode.
DVD-RW discs can be formatted for VR mode recording
or Video mode recording.
VR mode recording
• 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available
(SP, LP, EP, XP)
• Not playable on regular DVD players
• Recordings can be extensively edited
• Total number of titles on the disc should be less than
99.
Video mode recording
• 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available
(SP, LP, EP, XP)
• Playable on regular DVD players (after finalizing)
• Limited editing features
• Total number of titles on the disc should be less than
99.
Note :
DVD-Video Format (Video mode) is a new format for
recording on DVD-R/RW discs that was approved by
the DVD Forum in 2000. You may therefore experience
problems playing recordable DVD discs in some players.
Symptoms include video artifacts, audio and/or
video dropouts and playback suddenly stopping.
Our company cannot take responsibility for problems
playing discs recorded on this VCR/DVD Recorder in
other players.
