Tuning in existing vcr to new tv

Hi !
I can't seem to be able to record anything now that I've got a new TV. I've set everything up and if I put a video in (ie:a film) it will show a picture BUT if I record a programme , then go to play it , I can't find it at all , but I know that it has recorded! Also....now i'm finding that when I go to record, instead of being able to manually choose the channel I want to video...it only comes up AV1 and I can't toggle to any other station....it's driving me mad!!
Any suggestions ??

The proper protocol for the set-up described is to have the source such as cable, sat, etc to be connected to the input of the VCR, then have its output connected to the TV. That should fix the prob if all else is working...accordianman

I have a mitsubishi black dimond vcr id like to tune into a sharp tv how do i do this please


Ok, to hook it up to use as a Receiver, and TV, as a "Monitor". Using the antenna cable, plug this into the antenna IN socket on VCR. Now connect up, AV, using the Yellow, Video, Audio, is Red & White, on BOTH TV & Video. Now select an EXTERNAL INPUT on the TV. Now You Tune, and scan for "Channels" using the VCR. Find each channel, and save, now, you use the VCR remote to change channels, and the TV, is used as a "Display Monitor".
The Other way, is to just use the VCR as a "Recorder only, you plug the antenna, into the TV, now at rear of TV, you have a Video OUT, Yellow, and Stereo, Audio OUT, Red & White. Connect up the VCR to the TV using them. Now anything you View on TV, will be out put to the VCR, when you wish to record, simply press record, on Remote/VCR as desired. and it will record.

Can not find my instructions book to turn my freeview tv into my video recorder


If the TV has a scart then you don't need to tune it. All you need do is connect a scart to the VCR and TV. Then when you want to record anything, set the VCR to an AV setting instead of channel 1 etc. You need to set it to the one with the scart, as the VCR will have more than one AV looking at it's picture. You then just press record. You won't be able to change channel, or the VCR will record that channel instead.
If this is a problem, get a freeview box and just have it connected direct to the VCR.
If the TV has only one scart, you can get one of these boxes below.

Ambiuous Information out there


Hi,

I kind of think the people that wrote the manuals didn't bother hooking up a unit. Here is some help.

The converter box is nothing more then a tv tuner that picks up a digital signal and converts it into analog so your tv can view it.

The vcr, to record programs has to be set to channel 3 or 4 (whatever the converter box is broadcasting on) to record. The converter for the vcr will have to set to whatever channel you want to record from every time you use the vcr and left on as this is the only was the vcr can pick up a signal. Make sure the power saver on the converter box is set to off.

If your tv converter box has digital pass through, all you have to do is turn the tv converter box off and it your tv should pick up the singal from your vcr when you play tapes. You also use this method to access the menu on the vcr.

DTV Converter hookup


Is it possible to record TV programming on a VCR when using a DTV converter? h1 = document.getElementById("title").getElementsByTagName("h1")[0];h1.innerHTML = widont(h1.innerHTML); Hi,

I had the same problem and found this answer that worked for me. Hope this does the trick for you.

Simple stated, your VCR must be set to channel 3 also. Check it out.

woody



  1. You must have the VCR tuned to record on channel 3.
  2. You must have the VCR connected to output signal of the DTV converter box. In other words, the converter box must be connected between the antenna and the VCR. So, the likely configuration you would use with a coaxial cable is antenna to DTV converter to VCR to TV.
  3. You must tune the DTV converter to the channel you want to record prior to recording. The VCR won't be able to change channels on the DTV converter.
  4. You will be able to use the timed record function on the VCR but you must adhere to steps 1-3.
If this sounds freakishly familiar to recording on a digital cable or satellite set-top box, you are right. It is exactly like recording a signal from a digital cable box or satellite receiver. While it may be inconvenient to perform the steps above, at least the option still exists to record on a VCR while using a DTV converter box.
Disadvantage of DTV Converter: You will lose the ability to watch one program and record another with the DTV converter. Sorry for the bad news.
The reason is the tuner. The VCR tuner is useless with digital except for recognizing channel 3. The digital converter is a single tuner item so it only receives one station at a time.

Panasonic NV SJ205 changing RF settings


Hi,
Your VCR has input to record video-audio signal. Here is 2 options to record program in vcr.
1= You need to hook up video-audio cable at Monitor Out in TV and video-audio in at VCR. select Line-1 or Line-2 (where you hook up cable) in vcr and insert cassette with Record Tab intact, VCR is ready to record TV program. select desired channel on tv and hit record button of vcr, recording will start.
2= Plug RF antenna / cable wire in RF In of vcr and tune desired channel in vcr (get help of vcr's user manual for that) and push record button to start record directly in vcr.
Have further query, let me know please.
bye.

Grundig TV - Tuning DVD & VCR


Hi there!
If the DVD recorder has an RF out then you should be able to tune it on UHF bandwidth. The cable should run from the RF Out on the recorder to RF on the TV. Switch the recorder on, put in a DVD and press play before tuning. Some DVD's require a disc before a Menu appears. Good Luck, Regards, JUS004

TV, freeview, DVD and video set up.


Hi.
Modern day freeview boxes rarely have A modulator in them so you can not tune it to a channel on your tv it must be connected using scart lead.
Most freeview boxes have 2 scart sockets one for VCR & one for TV plug your scart leads in to the scart sockets of freeview they will be labled TV & VCR.
The scart labled TV goes to scart socket on the TV labled AV1 or 1
The scart labled VCR goes to scart socket on VCR labled AV or IN
Now the aerial leads From wall socket to ANT in on freeview.
Then from RF out on freeview to ANT in on VCR.
Then RF out on VCR to ANT in on TV doing this will enable you to put TV on 9 to watch tapes.

The final scart will be from DVD to TV socket marked AV2

You will need to put TV on AV channel to view freeview.
To record freeview you must put VCR to EITHER line.av,aux. it will be one of those different manufacturers call them by varying names.
I have done this banking on your tv having 2 scart sockets if it only has 1 let me know & I will tell you how to wire it differently.
Please state make & model of TV set & VCR & what connections are available EG scart, Phono, Svhs etc.
