DVD-VR357 RECORDS VIDEO (FROM VIDEO1) FROM COX DVR, BUT NO AUDIO

Connections from Cox DVR to Samsung and to Sony CRT TV are exactly as shown in Samsung manual. Recording of video picture is flawless, but there is no audio on Video1 where the picture is.
I can email my diagram of what current wiring hookup is if that will help.

    I know the S-Video connection has no audio, but disconnecting it hasn't changed the problem OLDCLUELESS

  • OLDCLUELESS Feb 22, 2008

    The frustrating part is that I have had 3 or 4 different DVD-VHS recorders in the past, including another Samsung, and have never had one that won't record audio. I can email my own diagram showing my current wiring hookup. (I am aware that the S-Video connection has no audio, but having it in or out doesn't change the problem).
    The Cox VDR records programs from cable, then we decide if we want to save it on DVD. We play it on our TV and try to record, but no audio!

    I have tried so many different cable combinations that it seems a defective cable would have revealed itself by now. But the symptom stays exactly the same. The Sony is a fairly new 27" Trinitron. The audio is stereo so there would have to be two defective wires or plugs on the same connection; otherwise we would hear either left or right side. What is the purpose of "Digital Audio Out" on the Samsung?

Make sure all your cables are working and none of them are burnt out.. since your tv is a crt one, the jacks could be going bad too, like my jvc one did.. it may be as simple as changing cables since you have done this before.. good luck..d

    if it's a little square like looking opening, it's an optical outlet. .this is another option to enhance sound/video type play.. you can run one from the receiver to the tv or dvd player to receiver or tv.. it doensn 't hurt to have one connected but depending on how your entertainment is setup, whether you use surround sound or not, would determince where to plug it in.. let me know if you need help and decide to use one.. thank, d

Well there the first thing i would check is the audio connection..

basically if you are recording from a playing media, like a dvf player

it would be like this

audio and video out from the dvd player to the inputs in the recorder.. then the out puts from the recorder to the input in the tv... (just a refrence)

upload your diagram, and state exactly what you want to record from.. if its the tv or another media type..

If its from the tv,, lets say you got cable and you want to record from cable,, Its

connect the out put from the cable box to the input of the dvr, then the out from the dvr to the input of the tv..

or

if its from an arial

connect the arial to the dvr,, now connect the dvr to the tv,, I guess you got the picture of what i am saying..

Basically all the out put from the media you wish to record from to the DVR and then from the DVR to the Tv..

How do I record a programme on my new Sony smart tv


i am trying to figure out what you are asking, you asking how to record a program on your smart tv, but i sony dvd & blu-ray play.
the sony dvd & blu-ray player can only play recorder material.
the smart tv assume has streaming video rite, you would need a program like dish, cox, other types of providers, dvr, this device needs program, that can store the movies or shows, hard drive or storage device, i guess i need more information, if you are wounder how to get inter net you would need a provider and than you have streaming video, recording device that can store the information you want to watch later we call a DVR. in order to get to the setting for on line or internet you have to go into setting and look for internet options or under streaming, online configuration,

Trying to dub from dvr to vhs vcr


Is L2 for composite video (yellow) or S-Video? Try watching a video on L2 with the composite video plugged into the back of your TV, if it works, then do the same with the DVR, if that works, then run the DVR composite video into a receiver, then the L2 from the VCR to the video out on your receiver. It's possible that the VCR won't record anything that isn't an applified signal. That's what the receiver does.

If exact model is Samsung DVD-VR357, than it doesn't even has to recognise blank disc as your unit is DVD PLAYER with Video Casette Recorder.

See Specs. for your unit below:
Function Combination VCR Y Compatibility Playback Media DVD-R,DVD-RW,DVD+R,DVD+RW,CD-R/RW,CD,VHS, DVD-RAM Playback Formats MP3, WMA, JPEG, MPEG-4, DivX A/V Quality Progressive Scan Y HD Upconversion 720p/1080i Digital-to-Analog Converter 10-Bit/54MHz DTS Output Y Dolby Digital Surround Sound Y Connectivity HDMI CEC Y Convenience Child Protection Parental Control Physical Features Connectivity HDMI Output Y Component Video Output 1(Rear) S-Video Output 1(Rear) Composite Video Output 1(Rear) Coaxial Digital Audio Outputs 1(Rear) Optical Audio Output 1(Rear) Product Weight & Dimensions Dimension 16.9" x 3.1" x 11" Weight 8.8Lbs.

Closest model match for DVD recording unit would be DVD-VR375

Unfortunately you have player only and you won't be able to recor DVDs with it whatsoever.

Good luck

Problems establishing audio output from DVD RW to TV


If you own a Digital Video Recorder, such as TiVo, or a DVR from a Cable or Satellite provider, then you know you can record to the device's hard drive to view TV shows at a later time, much like the old VCR. However, saving those TV shows becomes difficult as the Hard Drive starts to fill up. The answer to saving your shows is to record them to DVD! This can be accomplished easily by hooking up a DVD Recorder to your DVR
Here's How:
  1. 1)record a TV show on your DVR that you want to save to DVD!
  2. 2)Turn on the DVR, DVD Recorder and the TV that the DVD Recorder is connected to. In my case, I have my Samsung DVD Recorder (no hard drive) hooked up to my TV via an RCA Audio/Video cable from the rear outputs on the DVD Recorder to the rear RCA inputs on my TV. I use a seperate DVD Player for playing DVDs, but if you use your DVD Recorder as a player as well, use the best cable connections you can to connect to the TV. See the articleTypes of A/V Cables for more info.
  3. 3)Connect an S-Video or RCA video cable and composite stereo cables (red and white RCA plugs) from the DVR to the inputs on your DVD Recorder. If your TV has Component inputs, connect the Component Out from the DVD Recorder to the Component In on the TV, otherwise you can use S-Video or Composite. You will still need to use RCA audio with your video connection.
  4. 4)Change the input on your DVD Recorder to match the inputs you are using. Since I'm using the rear S-Video input, I change my input to "L1", which is the input for recording using the rear S-Video input. If I was recording using the front analog cables it would be "L2", the front Firewire input, "DV". The input select can typically be changed using the DVD Recorder remote.
  5. further instructions continued in my next comment post please read.

Motorola VIP1216 DVR and Sony VRD-MC5 Connections for Recording?


I have the same problem currently. I have successfully recorded to the Sony CM5 in the past from my DVR, but no longer can. I have Comcast and wonder if they have changed the DVR firmware and blocked output. Also some broadcasts have something in the signal to stop recording. I got half of my program done, and can't record the rest on DVD. I will try to DVR local news, then record to the Sony, to see if it's a signal issue or something with the Sony. I haven't tried to record from a VCR.

How to record ?


I don't know a whole lot about electronic equipment, but I've never seen anything connected in so many ways at the same time. Maybe the antenna and one other type of connection. The different signals from all the connections are probably confusing each other. I would try one connection at a time to see if the problem improves. Good Luck.

Recording from vhs to dvd with a dvr


You can get a standard audio/video cable from any Radio Shack or audio equipment store. It will most likely come as a single 3-part cable with a yellow (video), white (audio left), and red (audio right) set of connectors on each end. Most equipment that's not too old will have matching color-coded sockets marked input/output. Simply plug the video/audio cable into the vcr output and the other end into the dvr input. then connect a second cord from the vcr output to the tv input. Then with everything turned you will be seeing the final signal on the tv and you can start the dvr when you are ready to start recording.
