VCRs use Channel three or Four to watch the tape. It is better if you use the video out on the VCR to go IN to the TV video In on a modern TV. For record, the VCR cannot see Digital TV. You must connect the Digital TV box or satellite box Video Out to the Video In on the VCR.
Since your "new cable box" is directly connected to your TV via the A/V (Video 1), it is not attached in anyway to the VCR, hence the VCR is not receiving any "tv shows."
What you need to do is remove the A/V connection of the new cable box and put them into the A/V INput of your VCR. You may then continue using Ch 3 on your TV to watch your VCR and also be able to record tv shows. The only drawback is that the VCR must also be powered on to watch tv shows.
It is also possible to use the A/V OUTput of the VCR and connect them to the TV A/V INput (where the cable box used to be connected).
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Timer Recording JVC VCR HR A591U Timer recording can be programmed on-screen with the remote control. The built-in timer allows automatic unattended recording of up to 8 programs within 1 month.
EXAMPLE: Program a timer recording for the 26th day, channel 125 (CATV), 11:00 - 11:30 PM on timer program number 1 (Tape speed: EP).
When a TV is connected with an audio/video cable, turn the TV and this VCR on and select the video input mode on the TV.
• After timer recording is completed, the VCR turns off automatically. • You can program the timer recording while a regular recording is in progress; the menu screens will not be recorded. • The timer recording will start at 20 seconds before the time you predetermined.
Press MENU on the Remote. Check the “TIMER REC SET” option is selected, then press ENTER.
Press SET –/+ to select one of the program lines, then press ENTER.
Press SET –/+ to select the date, then press ENTER.
Set the start time, end time, channel and tape speed as in step 3. NOTE: To record from external source, press SET –/+ and set the channel to "L". "L" will appear next to CH 125 (or 69).
To enter other programs, repeat step 2 through 4. Or, press MENU twice to return to the normal screen.
Press TIMER on the Remote. The power will go off, the TIMER REC indicator ( ) will light and the VCR stands by for recording.
To cancel a program:
Press the SET –/+ to select the “TIMER REC SET” option in the MENU. Then press SET –/+ to select the unnecessary program, and press CANCEL to cancel the program.
If even the sound aside from the video is not reproduced on the TV, then your description "connect" indicates that the TV is not set to receive the audio/video signals from the VCR. Initially, pls try:
set the TV to Channel 3 (or 4); or
set the TV to A/V, Video 1 or Aux 1.
Additionally, you need to confirm how the VCR is hooked to the TV unit, bu a single coaxial cable or 3 cables with RCA connectors (yellow, red & white).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
You have to tell the vcr which input to record on. Instead of a channel try "Line 1" or "input 1" or "Video 1". you can get there by going to channel 01 and pressing channel down a few times. match whats written above the input jacks with what's on the screen.
Hopefully, your HDTV has a 'Video out' RCA jack on the back-some don't. You could try connecting from these video/audio out jacks to the RCA video/audio in jacks on your VCR. If it works, remember it will be recording EVERYTHING on the tv screen(Time, channel,etc.) that you see while watching. So if you change the channels on the tv-it will be on the tape.
You will have to tune the TV to the VCR output channel, which it sounds like you are already doing if you can watch videos. Then you need to set the VCR tunert to the correct input channel, probably something like line 1 or Aux or something like that. Probably the easiest way to find it will be to turn everything on and then just scroll through the channels on the VCR until you see what you are looking for.
If you have a cable box connected now, leave the VCR on channel 3 all the time and use the channels from the cable box.
The way this should be connected is cable in to cable box and cable out to VCR, VCR output to TV IN.
Hope this works for you.
I had the same problem when I got the TV from someone and I didnt have a remote. I went out and got a ONE FOR ALL remote and once I got it set up I had it in VCR mode and hit the AV button and now I can get to the channels. Hope it works for you.
It's difficult to be sure without being able to see the lines myself, but what it sounds like is some stray RF is getting into your video signal. Although your cables are supposed to be shielded, this is a common problem. The first thing I would do is move the cables or cable you are using, in relation to any power cords hanging down behind your equipment while someone watches for the lines to change or dissapear, and is that has no effect, then if possible change the position of the VCR in relation to the tv, so that if for example it is under the tv, move it to the side, or farther away, and the lines may very well dissapear. That problem is due to a common interaction between the tv and
vcr where there is not enough shielding, usually inside the bottom of the tv set.
Hope this helps, good luck!
