Question about Denon AVR-1602 Receiver

1 Answer

Denon AVR1602 I have my TV cable service wired to the Denon and the Denon wired to my DVD/VCR unit (Samsung VR357). I can get the DVD/VCR to play but not to record. Do I have to have the cable wired directly to the Samsung or should the cable signal be able to route through the Denon to the Sam?

I know the avr 1602 well....What exactly do you mean "I have my TV cable service wired to the Denon".....Do you mean the actual co-ax cable ?....

The denon is only able to switch raw video and audio signals.

What do I mean by that ?....IF you are running your co-ax cable from your cable company directly into the back of the denon, it won't work. The Denon has an AM-FM tuner, but not a video tuner ( channels 1-121)....If this is what you are doing, then you want to run it to your samsung first ( as long as the samsung has a tuner so you can change channels ).

If the samsung operates like an old VCR, whereby you can plug the cable company co-ax cable into the back of it, and change channels with the samsung, then that is what you must do. You would then hook up the OUTPUTS of the samsing to the VCR or DVD inputs on the Denon receiver. ( use DVD inputs on the denon if the samsung has optical audio out, and use an optical cable as well for better sound ).

You would then use the Denon for the sound, and hook up your TV to the Monitor out jack on the back of the Denon.

The Denon is like a big switchbox. You plug your DVD, VCR, Satellite, video game, or what-have-you into the Denon. Then you use the denon to route the signal to your TV for the picture, and the denon takes care of the sound.

Hope this helps, and remember to always follow your owners manual.......Rob

The VHS tapes will not playback on the Samsung TV (flat screen)..the Samsung TV is a Syncmaster 2333 HD...the Samsung dvd/vhs unit is a DVD-V9800 The DVD discs will play just fine. How should I be...


On these combo units, the VCR will not play using component cables but the dvd's will play just fine.

What you need to do is run a pair of composite (Yellow, red and white) cables and use that for VCR and component (Green, blue, red, white and red) for the dvd player.

Make sure you switch the tv to the corresponding input.

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.

Backup my vhs tapes


First hook up the VR357 to the TV with any cable ..
Then put a VCR tape into the VHS player.. get the tape to where you want to start the recording and press stop.
Then put a blank DVD in (-r or -rw is the best)
Then press VCR on the remote
Then press TO DVD on remote
you will see the word COPY come up on the DVD player and the VHS tape will start to play.
When you are done just press stop twice. and you will get a message that says "updating information to disk"
