To be honest I've never heard of a company that would make one! Your best solution would be a digital tv box conected via a scart to the video.

How do you replace a coax antenna port that was pulled out from the back of the tv


On most sets the tuner has to be removed for this to be done-a new fitting or a new tuner can be installed.

If the set has the standard RCA audio and video jacks for input you can hook a cable box or even an old VCR to those and BYPASS the coax fitting--hook up to those inputs--select them on the set and leave set on that input and change channels with the box or VCR.

Much cheaper than replacing the fitting and gives a better picture.

How to set up vhs taping


Most VCRs need to be connected in a daisy chain or a splitter from your input source. (You may need a tuner with some VCRs these days; either a digital to analog converter for a VCR with an NTSC tuner or a different tuner source.)

If you have analog cable or a cable box with coax out and a VCR with an NTSC tuner, use the daisy chain method. Connect the incoming cable or the coax out from the cable box to the VCR's coax input. Then connect the VCR coax out to the TVs coax input.

For a VCR without a tuner, you'll probably find a RCA composite video line in option on the VCR. Connect your cable box or converter box composite output to the VCR composite in. For an OTA source, you'll need a splitter to send the signal to both the TV and the converter box.

Most TVs do not have a video output option.

I hope this helps.

I have lost the manual and would like to hook up the VCR to my TV in order to record programs. Can you help? JVC Video Cassette Recorder HR-D18OU Thank you.


Is the incoming signal OTA or cable? (If cable, is it analog (CATV) or digital (QAM)?)

Most TV's do not have a video out but you should check your TV. Assuming the usual TV with no video out, then you will need a set top box to record any program other than analog signals (CATV or a low power OTA option). The VCR only has an NTSC (analog) tuner.

For an OTA signal, take the coax from the antenna to a digital-to-analog converter coax in, then coax out of the converter to the coax in (tuner) of the VCR. Then set the VCR to channel 3 or 4. Set the switch on the converter. (Some VCRs will record Line In or Input, so you could use the composite out of the converter to the VCR.) Then coax out from the VCR to the coax in on the TV and set the TV to Channel 3 or 4 as well. Set the switch on the VCR. (Alternatively use the composite (A/V) out on the VCR to the composite In on the TV and set the input to AV1 (or whatever the TV calls the input). Digital cable will be set up like the OTA, except for using a cable set top box instead. You may want a splitter to allow for watching one program while recording another. In that case, put the splitter before the set top box if the TV has the digital tuner. Otherwise put it after the set top box. In both cases, you will need to use the AV (composite out) on the VCR to the TV.

For analog cable, take the coax cable and connect it to the VCR's coax in. Then connect the coax out or AV out to TV.

Set the VCR to the desired station and press REC. For timed record, enter the menu and set the time to start and end the recording as well as the channel. If you are using a set top box, set that to the desired station and then press record. (Leave the VCR set to Line in or channel 3 (4) as needed.)

Manuals for some JVC vcrs are here: http://support.jvc.com/consumer/product.jsp?categoryId=CATG0002&productId=PRD4600001&archive=true . A manual for a similar model will help since they all connect the same way. However the HR-D18OU is not in the list.

I hope this helps.

I need to connect my vcr/dvd combo unit to an Emerson HD TV so that I can record shows. Can you help me?


Most TVs only have audio out and several audio/video in connections. Unless you have an unusual tv, there is no option for a coax connection from the TV to a recorder.

Since this DVD recorder only has an analog tuner, you need to connect it to a set top box to record signals unless you are looking only at analog channel sources. If you are getting OTA, then a OTA digital-to-analog tuner is needed for most channels. (Only low power stations are still broadcasting in analog.) The cheaper ones that were available with the government coupon were SD tuners. HD content will need a separate tuner. If you have cable or satellite, check the signal (QAM is digital cable).

Next connect the coax from your analog source to the DVD recorder coax in and another coax cable to the coax out and the TVs coax in (if you want to - the pass through doesn't work with a set-top box for non-analog signals). Set the channel to the appropriate one (3 or 4 for the OTA d-t-a boxes; desired channel to watch for analog OTA or cable). Set the TV to channel 2, 3 or 4. Alternatively, use composite A/V cables from the set top box to the A/V Input of the DVD recorder and set the recording channel to Input 1.

Next connect A/V cables (composite or S-video) to the recorder's matching out to the TV A/V or S-video In. Set the TV to A/V 1 or Video 1 depending on the Emerson TV. You can watch tapes or DVDs. For better video quality on DVD playback, also connect component video cables from the DVD recorder Out to the TV's component in (if it is available). Then set the TV to the appropriate component video input when watching DVDs.

I hope this helps.

My antenna has a coax-my 50 in Maxent mx50X3 has no coax hook up. How do I connect these two?


That unit does not have a tuner so it does not have an antenna input. You need to connect a cable box, satellite box, VCR with a digital tuner (or an additional DTV box for converted input), or DVR to one of the HDMI, S-Video, or Component inputs to view TV.

Tv has snow screen but plays movies fine, just no cable channels come in clear, some one has said maybe tuner. Sanyo DS24425


It may very well be the tuner. If it has another means of connecting to the tv try composite or component cable. If that isn't possible try replacing the coax from the wall plate to tuner and from tuner to tv. This is if you have a cable box also called an STB in your home. If you do not have an STB try changing the coax from wall plate to tv. You may even want to replace the barrel on the wallplate as well. If the cable runs through the VCR disconnect it and run it straight to the tv and this will determine if the problem is in the VCR.
Hope this helps you out.

Connecting coax to my DVD/VCR combo


For the DVD portion, you need to use either composite, component, or possibly S-Video or HDMI. DVD players do not utilize coax, since they do not incorporate tuners. However, since you have indicated it is also a VCR, it should have a coax input/output for that. perhaps it is a player only and doesn't have a tuner? But I have never heard of this in a combination unit. At any rate, if it truly does not have a coax input, then you will have to leave the coax connected directly to your TV and use the above mentioned connections between the home theater, TV, and DVD/VCR unit. Audio between the DVD/VCR and home theatre, and video between the DVD/VCR and TV

VCR to TV


Your FIOS box is typically a Motorola Digital Cable Tuner. In order to record from the VCR your FISO will have control of the tuner, not the vcr. If your FIOS has two video outputs on it for video (av connections), one should be plugged into you tv set and the other should be plugged into the VCR input. Your cable tuner will have to be set for the channel you wish to record ahead of time while the VCR tuner has to be set to record the line input at whatever time you wish to record. If your FISO has one video output line (av connections), your VCR has to be set to channel 3 when you record (provided that is the channel your FISO box is set for when viewing TV over the coax cable) and you will have to attach the coaxial output from the FISO into the coax input of your VCR.

The only way around this is to get a splitter and split the coax line so that the FIOS is connected to the coax as it is now and the VCR is connected to a seperate line using the coax input, however using this configuration will prevent you from recording digital channels. If you have a cable ready VCR, it will probably only recognize channels up to 150.

If you really want to get it to record digital channels without the hassles find out if Verizon has a FISO box with DVR to it or connect a Tivo to your FISO. Tivo will tune the FSIO when it records and it's very user friendly to use.

New TV hookup


Erica,
You should have no problem with this. I have provided a picture of your model below for clarification. One end of the coax will attach to the 3-4 OUT on the back of the receiver and the other end will go to the NEW tv's coax input. If your set has two coax inputs you may have to select the port that you connect to in the menu portion of the tv. If the new tv does not have a coax input you can use RCA jacks which are red/white and yellow and connect those to the TV 1 output on the back of the receiver and the other end to one of the inputs on the back of the tv- this will require you to select the input source you connect to again e.g AUDIO 1, AUDIO2 etc. If you have a VCR run the coax from the 3-4 on the back of the receiver to the antenna inon the back of the VCR -usually the top port, then run another coax from the output- bottom port to the coax input on your tv. I hope I have been of some assistance to you and Thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can assist you further please let me know.
