    I have the same problem. I've hooked a DVD player up to the back, set up Channel 3 for it via the Menu, and all that pressing the DVD button on the remote does is change the channel to channel 3. Pressing the Who/Input button on the remote worked for awhile, but I had to reset the Channel/Video Input Signal option every time I turned on the TV. Now that doesn't even work. HELP! ANYONE??

Since I posted this question, I found the solution (yea!). Unfortunately, metallergic's response does NOT work on this TV.
Here's the solution:
On the Universal Remote is a button labeled "Who/Input". After turning on the DVD player, press this button - Voila! The DVD player is now in control of the TV input. AND you don't have to change the TV channel to 3 (or whichever channel you set it up for via Menu > Setup). What I've discovered is that pressing the DVD button on the Universal Remote simply changes which device the remote controls; pressing DVD means that the remote is now controlling the DVD player.
Which brings me to my new question - Does anyone have a list of codes for this TV and Remote? It would now be great to also control my DVD player via this Universal Remote. I have a Magnavox DVD player.

I have this same TV. The DVD player is either hooked up to the video or s-video input. Go to the Menu (either through the remote or from the front of the TV) and select the Setup option. Go to the part where it asks if you want to use a DVD player. Select yes. Then select Video Input. Exit the Setup. When you hit the DVD button, it will switch to the Video input. The second step is to go into the Menu and select Channel, then go to Video Input Source. From there, select which input you are using for your DVD player, the S-Video or the standard Video (yellow composite cable).

If the entire VHS is full then you can easily transfer the VHS contents to the DVD. The video will play while it is recording onto the DVD, but you don't have to have it hooked up to any TV for it to record. Now if you don't know how long the VHS content is that you want to record to DVD, then you will have to hook up the player to a TV so that you can press stop when you reach the end of the content you want recorded. At least this is true in the way that I use to transfer VHS to DVD:

1) Turn on the unit
2) Insert VHS tape
3) Insert DVD-+R or DVD-+ RW
4) Using remote, press VCR
5)Using remote, press play then pause the tape where you want to start recording.
6)Using remote, press DVD
7) Using the remote, press DUBBING. The VHS should start to play and the DVD should start recording

When using this method, don't hit the RECORD button!

I hope this helps!

Cannot get picture/menu on screen!


Hi,

The Sony recorder is connected to the TV via the RCA cables (for both audio and video)? How many inputs does your TV have? One cable input and one RCA line in (making a total of two? Did you eliminate the possibility that the recorder might be defective by trying it on another TV?

I dont really know whats wrong with it when ii try to get it to copy a vhs to advd it wont work?


I don't know what recorder machine you have or what your hooking up to do your transferring. You cant convert VHS movie to DVD by plugging in RCA jacks from VHS player to DVD recorder. DVD reads digital and VHS does not because it reads analog and out put analog. you have to covert VHS movie into digital in order to transfer to DVD. There is a program you can buy call Roxio Easy. great stuff, cost 59.00 buck for your desk top computer, everything you need is there to transfer VHS to DVD...hope that help some, good luck.

Hooking up my DVD/VHS player to TV & Convertor box


I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.

Dvd recorder


Following the instructions on hooking up the cables gave me fits. I finally just put the instructions away and winged it. Got it that way. Bypass your Ilo tuner. Hook the Comcast Cable (outs) up to the A/V input 1 of your ILO. Hook your tv combo A/V outputs, to the ILO A/V inputs. Select the Source and choose the cable source for cable and the combo source to tape from your VHS/dvd combo. Its a pain but you have to select Source everytime you turn the Ilo back on. You could hook your Cable to the ILO but would have to turn on ILO everytime to watch tv. Two remotes is a chore but you have to use tv remote for the volume anyway so it doesn't matter. Hope this helps.

Recording Snow


If you hook your VCR up to the RCA jacks on the front of the DVD recorder, push 002 on the remote to use the front input jacks. (001 if you hook your VCR up to the rear input jacks)

Push record on the DVD recorder, and push Play on the VCR.
(Pg. 35 in the manual)

When you push play on the VCR, you should be able to see the movie being played on your TV. If you cannot, make sure your RCA cables are good and hooked up correctly.

That's all you have to do, so if it's not recording I would try to take the unit back for an exchange.

Samsung CXD2512 TV/VCR Combo...Cannot hook up DVD player


We also don't have a remote. We hooked a DVD/VCR combo to the Samsung combo by attaching the cable from the cable line to the DVD player and an additional cable from DVD to TV and it used to work but after we lost the control, the DVD can only be listened to but not seen. The VHS from the DVD player works perfectly though.

When we had the remote (before connecting the other combo) we used line-in to see a DVD or VHS using the yellow red and white cables from the Samsung to the other player.
