DVD/VCR combo won't record off of the t.v. even after programmed

I have been trying to tape t.v. shows to disc with no luck. ( I have a Magnavox ZV450MW8.) I go through the timer recording/programming process, but the next day nothing has been saved to the disc. I think there might be some confusion for me with the channel part of programming. I have satellite, so it says to select E1 or E2 for input, but it doesn't allow you to put in a number for the channel when trying to set up for timer recording. The manual says that if you have an external input, which I do, then I need to use those. Using the other choices of analog or DTV, it won't take the higher, three digit channel numbers when trying to set the timer. I'm not sure I even understand the difference between analog and digital anyway.

I have the machine set up to record a couple of shows tomorrow using the VCR, so we'll see what happens. Help!!

    From what the dvd tells me, E1 is the rear connection, and that is where I have my cables. I'm in the process of rechecking to make sure that everything is hooked up according to the directions for someone with satellite or cable. I don't know what a scart lead is, can u explain please?! Thanks!

A Scart lead is a high quality lead for connecting AV devices, it has 21 pins in the plug at each end. If you are using one you would need to select E1 or AV1 for the Satellite channel and you would select each Sky channel through the Sat. Decoder, not tune them in individually on the recorder.

Do you have a scart lead connected to E1 or E2 on the recorder.

Need to know if I can record from dvd to vcr on a magnavox ZV420MWB vcr/dvd combo


Magnavox ZV420MWB VCR/DVD Combo
The answer is YES YOU CAN! Take advantage of one-touch recording from videotapes to DVD+/-R and RW discs or from DVDs to VHS tapes. A variety of different inputs also let you record from compatible camcorders, external TV tuners or cable boxes.

CONSUMER ALERT: This model does not have a built-in tuner for recording TV programs and will not record copy-protected tapes or discs. For more information, call the Federal Communications Commission at 1-888-225-5322 (TTY: 1-888-835-5322) or visit the Commission's digital television website at: www.dtv.gov.

Vcr/dvd when can i finalize my disc iam recording i have a magnavox combo before i starte or after tapeing


Finalizing means that you're finished and you won't be putting anything else on the disc. Finalize it after you're done so it will play on other DVD players. If you have a rewriteable DVD, then you can go back and erase it and record over it later even though you've finalized it. If you have a -R or +R only, then you can't and whatever is on it when you finalize it will be on it forever..

I record a DVD from VCR tape and try to play on another device


In my research, I learned about finalizing the DVD, which was a new concept to me. I looked that process up in the manual and it did the trick.

RCA 8295n dvd-vcr combo starts recording from VHS tape to disk and then stops.


Is the VHS tape a store bought movie or show?

MacroVision and other copy protection systems are put into store bought tapes and discs of movies and shows, and are read by your recording equipment. Once it reads this, it stops recording.

Does the screen turn red before it stops? This is one of the indications that MacroVision is stopping you.

HELP! I can't figure out how to Connect my Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo to my older TV


Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.
