Zmomusa-Well for starters i'm guessing that you have an RF out to tv (where you hook up a coax cable).most units work on channel 3or 4,if you don't have RF out try going into tv through the video input (red ,white and yellow plugs) this may be easier and you will get better picture.If your not sure let me know I can help you. cooltekFeb18/08

I have a Goldstar VCR and I want to record a tv program using it. How do I do it?


Most Goldstar VCRs only have an analog tuner. (TVs do not often have an option to output their video to another device.)

So first what is the source of the TV program? If it is an OTA analog or CATV cable. Set up the VCR normally by connecting the incoming signal cable to the VCR and then use the coax out to the TV. Scan for channels and set the VCR to record the desired program. (Either use the timed record or one touch record method.)

If your source is digital, you will need a set top box (either a digital to analog converter or cable box). To split an incoming OTA signal between your TV and the converter box, you can use a switch or a splitter. (A splitter will give lower signal strength to both the TV and the converter box.)

Depending on the box, you can either connect a coax cable from the box to the VCR and then to the TV or composite video from the box to the VCR. If you use coax, set the converter to channel 3 or channel 4 and record that channel. Otherwise set the VCR to record Line 1.

To record, put in a tape with sufficient space available with an intact safety tab. For One Touch Recording, set the VCR to the desired channel and tape speed. Then press Rec. Press several time for a timed recording. For Timed recording, press Menu > Program. Press Select and move through the list to program day to record, the start/stop time, and channel, etc. When done, press Menu to save the setting. The timer light should come on (most VCRs will turn off).

I hope this helps.

5) After a few seconds, press the PLAY button on the DVD/VCR for 3 seconds.
• The RF output channel will change to channel 3 from channel 4 and you will see a playback picture.

I've had a number of vcrs and vcr/dvd players over the years. But for some reason, I cannot set up this machine. I set up all of the cables exactly like I always have and the way that is instructed, but I...


These days the video input channel depends on the TV and any other equipment in the sequence. I've seen component video come in as Line, Channel 3/4 (with a switch on the video device), Aux1, Ex1, AV1, Channel 60 (I think that may be specific to satellite dish receivers). If the remote has an input button, try that (alternatively, look in the menu for source options). One thing to try: press the PSCAN button on the DVD remote (to toggle off the Progressive scan).

On some TVs the channel for the video is reached by going down from Channel 2 (this works when no channels are programmed into memory and the intervening channels are skipped).

What TV are you connecting to the DVD/VCR player? (If it is an older TV and any external device was connected to either channel 3 or 4, check that the TV works with any input device. I had a 19 year old TV (coax in only) that was damaged and no external device worked.)

I wish that I could be of more help.

Would like to record from my tv to my magnavox dvd/vcr combo box


If I understand your request right, You do not have cable or satellite box.
You can not record from your TV. You use the TV as a monitor from the dvd/vcr combo box. What the box receives is what shows on the TV. So you will have to have a digital convertor hooked to the (antenna in) dvd/vcr combo box, (antenna out to the tv antenna in) Depending on the antenna you are using that is on the other end of your cable-in coax connection this will hook to your antenna in on the digital convertor box. If your cable is hooked up and operating correctly and directly to the tv that is digital ready you probabbly have a good picture. When the vhf/uhf signal was transmitted you could go from the dvd/vcr to the tv with no problem. But now that the signal is digital and the tv is set for digital the dvd/vcr will not pass a digital signal to the tv. Best suggestion, you have to get a digital dvd/vcr receiver. If you have more question please contact me.

How to program vcr to record digital channels?


Any VCR select to input source from where recording.
So select appropiate Euroscart or other AV connection.
Digital channel will be your digital cable set top box or sat receiver, DVD player, whatever. Very unlikely you use a digital capable set topbox to output to your VCR or TV with old fashioned RF coax cable where you have to tun in to cerain RF frequency under Channel 0 or so. So when in timer menu select that input source connection. Direct recording without timer select the source with remote. This solution applies to all brands

I have a rca dvd recorder+vcr combo drc8320n i want to set up watching/changing cabletv channels on the dvd remote. i have tried buying universal remotes cheap& expensive but they no longer work on my


With cable input connected to "RF in"on rear of unit make sure vidoe input is set to "Tuner". This will show up on the TV screen. Change channels numerically or using up/down arrow keys on DVR remote. Note there is a slight pause between changing channels.You probably will have to "autoscan" for channel setup/etc. If you say your TV set is old; it probabaly is equiped with coax
connection only/set TV channel to "3" or "4". when yot opt to play vcr/dvd it will override your
cable channel selected. Hope this helps!
