Question about Audio & Video Receivers
I am coming in on line in rca's ( on a teac rwcd22 cd recorder) and am recieving signal when i select the analog input selector but when i try to hit record the player reads "no cd - da:d2" i have switched the type of cd and am pretty sure that the solution isnt in the cd but something to do with dubbing mode. please help me I am not incompetent with audio equipment and am pretty frustrated as to why this isnt working!!
Are you using a MUSIC CD-R or CD-RW? You cannot use regualr computer CDR or RW discs in a standalone audio recorder. You must use special blank discs which are specifically designated as for "Music" or "audo". THey have a special code on them that indicates such, and usually cost a bit more than computer discs because an extra tax goes to the recording industry..

The following is some boilerplate I made up that should explain some usage limitations.
Be advised that the engagement of any device in a Tape Monitor loop on a late-model Audio/Video Receiver will effectively tie the receiver down to stereo-only analog sound reproduction. I'll explain.
The connections themselves are fairly simple but it pays to understand what happens in the loop.
In general, any Line-Level external processor (EQ, dynamic range expander, etc) will go into a Tape Monitor loop on a receiver. A Tape Monitor, when engaged, sends the stereo analog signal Out to the Processor, massages it and returns it to the receiver via the Tape Monitor IN connectors to be passed on to the receiver's internal processes (volume, tone, whatever).
Old school analog stereo-only receivers consistently work this way. Newer digital and audio/video receivers introduce a couple of problems: 1) digital sound processing to simulate a variety of soundfields; 2) multiple output channels, either discrete or digitally-generated.
The latter requires that whatever signal is being processed experiences a maximum of one analog-digital-analog conversion.
EVERYTHING analog coming into the modern digital receiver is automatically converted to a digital signal for internal processing unless you choose a STEREO-only or STEREO-Direct setting. Consequently, no further external analog-digital conversions would be allowed if, say, a Tape Monitor circuit was activated, and a possible feedback loop could otherwise be created in a digital-sourced selection (output to its own input), so the unit is wired to treat the Tape Monitor as the first analog step in the process and defeats any pure digital sources.
In a multichannel unit, what would happen to the other channels if you sent ONLY the Front Left & Right out for processing? They would NOT be processed. That logical problem also plays into the decision to defeat digital sources if the Tape Monitor is activated. I don't totally agree with the engineers but that's the way it is. Nature of the digital beast.
Okay, back to the hook-up:
Receiver Tape Out (Rec) - to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Rec, Line-In; Receiver Tape In (Play) - from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Play , Line-Out.
Receiver Tape Out (Rec) - to the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Rec, Line-In;
Receiver Tape In (Play) - from the External Processor (EQ, whatever) Preamp-, Play , Line-Out.
So, to sum up, you can only use the EQ or any outboard processor for analog stereo sources. If you actually want to use an analog recording deck you could place it within the typical Equalizer
