I have a Philips DVDR 3575H. using Comcast's


Try this set up-

Use an RCA audio/video cable for this set up (Yellow/Red/White).

Connect from the Video out (Yellow) connection on the back of the cable box to the Video in on the back of the DVR.

Connect the audio (Red/White) cables from audio out connection on the back of the cable box to the "Audio in" on the back of the DVR.

This should still get you a decent picture but not a true HD picture for your recordings.

When you set the timer to record set it to record either E1 or E2 depending on which input you connected the cable box to and ensure that the cable box is tuned to the channel you wish to record.

*** NOTE: If you keep the HDMI cable connected as you have for the cable box and watch normal TV through the HDMI input on the TV you will get HD programming for your general viewing but still have the option to record with the DVR at a lower quality. ***

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

Connections


I believe that you simply need a splitter from your cable line from the wall to the items that need it.

That will give you input to the DVD-R and to the Cable box.

Let me know if we need to discuss further, I will be glad to help!

I cant record. trying to record from the tv to blank video tape


With the assumption that this is a DVD recorder not just a player, and all connections are correct, two things need to be in place.
1. Source: the unit needs to have a cable tuner so you can receive a channel to record or an external input (look like stereo plugs) for video in and audio in so you can use a cable box for tuning a channel
2: Format: these units will need a DVD -R or DVD +R format blank to use. Some units can use both.

If this unit is a combo (DVDR and VCR in one box) then the source should be available to both for recording and selecting the appropriate channel should work. (Note if using the cable box then the recorder channel probably should be on 3 and set your cable box to the channel you want to record
Good luck.

Just had this problem,this is the button config for master reset when you have no picture: Left Button x 3 Down Button x 7 OK (Centre Button) OK (Centre Button) Down Button x 6 OK (Centre Button) Left Button x 1 OK (Centre Button) OK (Centre Button) Wait a few seconds for settings to complete, then switch off.

I need help! Our cable jack on our tv is messed up so we have to run it through a dvd/vhs player. I have tried everything to get it to work. I can play dvds and see them, but i cant get the satellite to...


Change the source on the Philips/Magnavox to switch between satellite and movies (warning: this particular Philips/Mag cannot process HD Satellite receiver boxes). You can switch sources by using the Magnavox remote and pressing 0-2. Then press ch down until the display says either L1 or L2 - whichever input the satellite is connected to. Another warning: For my instructions to work, you must have a non-HD satellite receiver, and you must run a red, white and yellow cable from the satellite box to the Magnavox instead of a standard coaxial cable wire (and then, of course, run a second set of red, white and yellow cables from the Magnavox to your TV).

Setting satellite box with dvd-r174


It's a shot in the dark, but it may be that your satellite provider incorporates a copy-protection signal in the broadcast.

No sound


Make sure the red and white audio cables are plugged into the OUT of the dvdr, and the IN of the tv - and make sure the tv is on the correct source channel. If using a coaxial cable, reset the audio setting of the dvd first, and the tv second if that fails.

Recording from cable dvr


You have to hook up an AV cable from the box to the DVDR.. Out on the cable box to IN on the DVD player.
Then put your DVD player on AV1 - ( you can do this by pressing the INPUT SEL button on the DVDR remote)

Then put the Cable box on whatever channel you want to record. And press the record button on the DVDR and you will record whatever channel the cable box is on

If you can't get to AV1 then you have to disable cable box control (menu>setup>system>cable box control>off
