I am able to record and view my tape with no distorted sound if I run my cable in line to my vcr, but if I run my cable in line to my cable box then to my vcr I can record but when I play back I get distorted sound. How do I hook up my vcr cable box to my tv. Do I need to put in a splitter from cable in then to my vcr and cable box, I have tried everything. Does the distorted sound have something to do with my cable box which is a Scientific Atlantic 2200

That will depend upon what you want to do. If you plan to record to the VCR from the cable box, then the cable box will need to directly connect to the VCR, then the output of the VCR is connected to the TV. Unfortunately, most VCRs are analog, not digital, so you will lose HD capability (if you have it) trying to connect this way. You also cannot record one show while watching something else (you will need to be tuned to the channel you are recording). If you want to simply use the VCR to view recorded tapes, then connect the cable box to the TV as per the cable company recommendations, and then make a second connection for the VCR. Of course, your TV will need appropriate and available jacks on the rear to do this. It is difficult to give specifics without knowing the models of the cable box, VCR, and TV.
You need to route the signal from the cable modulator to the DVR and then to the TV to be able to view and record. If this is done you will be able to watch what you are recording. When you are not recording, the signal will go through the DVR to the TV.
Please change the cabling and you should have what you want.
have a look at ur install bock it will tell u how to do it...connect antenna to ur vcr then use cable from ur vcr output to ur tv antenna ,,,,,after u have done this read instruction .....to connect ur dvd ....just plug ur cables from ur dvd to the back or ur tv....marked as dvd input.... cheers and good luck......very simple.....
When connecting VCR to TV. Verify all connections. First if the connection is with coaxial cable make sure you signal from outside is screwed to the cable input on VCR. Then the VCR/TV output has the cable running to TV input. If hooking up with RCA cables , which is the yellow, red, and white cables. Hook one side up to VCR output. Yellow for Video, while red/white to audio output matching the colors. The same is done to the Television input. yellow for video, red/white for audio. Do a test recording. Use a blank tape, not one already recorded on. Record about 5 minutes Stop recording , rewind and playback. You should see the difference.
Check to make sure the cables on the VCR are hooked up correctly. If the in and out are reversed, this might cause your problem. Hopefully it's as simple as that. if not leave a comment and I'll get back to you.
1st setup ur VCD with TV and playback it to view on TV. If picture is coming, thats OK.
2nd plug ur camcorder in VCR input and select VCR input according to plug in and monitor the camcorder picture on TV through VCR. If its ok, now u r ready to record the picture from camcorder to VCR.
Hello..try to turn on the test signal generator switch it is marked test at rear of vcr...and chose av¨rf channel on your tv i.e the 0 or 9 channel than search for the vcr and memorize on tv...alt you can playback a tape ..pre-recorded without the test signal and make the search...alt 2...use a direct av-cable between vcr and tv..which is best and put tv in av mode...good luck...Ron
