Configuring I/O cable box, VCR, DVD.

I have I/O digital service.
I have a cable-in (coax) TV.... no RCA A/V plugs.
VCR.
DVD

I can play tapes on this setup.... but can't record on this setup.

I want to be able to record on the VCR on one channel and watch on another channel. The I/O signal is not recognized by the VCR.... I think.

How can I configure this to allow me this capability.

Thanks, Rod

Unfortunately you would need a second digital cable tuner to do what you are trying to do.
The digital tuner only outputs one channel at a time, selected by that box, so you can only record or watch that one channel at a time.

Many people are switching to dual tuner DVR's to cure this dilemma.

DVD/VCR WILL NOT PLAY DVD DISCS


* check your warranty and call for service.(But it looks like this is a very old unit if it's a VCR/DVD combo.
* Pull plug and count to 10. Reconnect.
* check power lights. Does it say Ready, blinking time (12:00), any indication that power is on? No lights? Bad unit. Discard.
* If power okay, press open tray. Opens? Remove Disk. Insert "Known" working DVD (use a new store bought DVD that the kids did not play.) Press play.
* Is the disk reading? The DVD display should have changed while searching disk. No? Discard unit.
* Is it playing (the movie time should change as the movie plays). No video? Check cables to TV
* No sound? Check audio cables to TV (Red and White RCA Plugs)
* DVD and VCR plays disks or tapes but nothing on TV? Does the TV have an "Analog" input? Newer 2018 TVs may only accept Digital input like HDMI. A few may have the Video/Audio RCA plug input (usually used by the DVD player) though Digital TV's tend not to have this input.)
* You may need to have your old VCR tapes digitized (especially family tapes) There are "Analog to Digital" cable sets available at your electronics store or online at Amazon.com

* You may still find DVD players at thrift stores for under $20. I'm not sure if you can still find a new player.
* Try WalMart (Humm... no price given.)

My TV has coaxial inlet only. Can I connect a Toshiba SD-1300 DVD Player? Thanks


  • You can but you have to add one of two things to make the DVD player with a coax only TV.

  • One you buy a VCR with coax and RCA inputs and outputs. They are cheap enough these days and serve more than one purpose as you can watch VHS tapes as well as run the DVD player to your VCE through the RCA cables. Then run your VCR to your TV and back to the VCR both through your coax. To watch DVD you would need your VCR and DVD player on as well and for VHS you would beed the VCR on only.


  • What it does is provide the RCA input and output your TV does not have. RCA from the DVD to the box and the box run a coax to the TV and that's it for this way.

I can not seem to find out how to run my cable line through my DVD/VHS combo and into my TV. I have to use the DVD/VHS combo to run cable to my TV because the coax input on my TV broke off and I have to...


Dear hugoreyes456,
On the rear side of your DVP3345VB you should find a bunch of RCA connectors. There is a column on the right side with the title VCR - AUDIO IN - VIDEO IN.
May I ask you to try plug your cable box to this connectors and the DVP3345VB to your TV.
Before trying it, may I ask you to check that you get video directly from the DVP to your TV when playing a DVD or a VHS tape?
Regards,

Vcr hooked up, no audio


From the VCR to the tv if you have RCA cables its kind of hit and miss where the audio cord goes. Only one of the jacks are for sound but it has to be plugged in to the right input. Audio is usually the white one. Just keep touching it to inputs until you hear sound start to come out of the speakers. Hope it helps.

Converter box


1) Connect the coax cable from the antenna to the converter box input.
2) Connect the coax cable output of converter box to the input of the VCR.

This is the only way it will work but you will have many limitations such as using the programming features of your VCR.

The boxes are fine if you want to play prerecorded DVDs or tapes. If you want to record tapes you have to leave the box on and have it set to the station you want to record.

Trying to hook up your DV220SL8 DVD/CD Video Cassette Recorder. I have an antenna coming in coax but there are no places to plug any of the jacks on the tv.


There are two ways of solving this problem
1.It seems to me that you need an RF Modulator Box. What this does is convert the RCA cables (Yellow,White,Red cables) into coax. You buy the box then plug you antenna and RCA cables into the box. The box has a coax output that goes to your TV. You can then switch from VCR\DVD to antenna.

2. I dont know if your VCR/DVD has it but try hooking up your antenna to the VCR coax INPUT and then hook up your TV to the coax OUTPUT. Both Coax INPUT and Coax OUTPUT should be on the back of the VCR/DVD device. Your going to need an extra Coax wire for this.

Hope this helps

Check the cable connections and/or replace the cables to the AV2 input.

If replacing the cable doesn't provide a solution, try running your DVD through the input. Since it works fine now, you would be checking the input AV2 by putting your working DVD. If the DVD plays with no problems, the input is fine.

Also try the VCR using coax into the TV instead of RCA into AV2. This will give you some idea about the condition of the VCR.

I suspect either the VCR or the cables.

Vcr hook up


Have you tried to run:
Coax from the wall to your cable box.
Coax from the cable box out to the VCR cable in.
Coax from the VCR cable out to your TV?

What connections does your TV have? RCA or coax?
