Just got a hd tv, cant figure out the proper connection on the back of the vcr/dvd so it will work have to put the tv on component 1 tried all kinds o color combo's (red to red white to white, etc) but cant get it right. Ant suggestions?
What model and manufacturer DVD/VCR combo are you using. if it has a HDMI port, you should buy a HDMI cable to your combo player than to your HDTV (most don't have this High Definition port.)
otherwise, it probably contains a composite port, connect the red to the red (Left) white to white (mono) and yellow to yellow (Video) than connect the wires to the matching port on your HDTV) then switch the input to AV or Composite.
If this fails, you need a coaxial cable.connect a coaxial cable to your player then to the coaxial port on your tv. change the input to "either Coaxial, Cable 3 or any input that sets it to coaxial input.

You can record from an external component, such as a camcorder or VCR, connected to any of the Recorder's external inputs.
1. Make sure that the component you want to record from is connected properly to the Recorder. See page 14.
2. Press AUX repeatedly to select the external input to record from.

• AV2: Audio/Video Input mounted on front panel.
• DV: DV Input mounted on front panel.
if your tv and dvd player are good yes might be you have a wrong connection. this is how a proper connection between your tv and dvd player.
first step in connecting a dvd player to a tv unit is determined what kind of connection you want to make, this usually determined to the outputs and inputs available on the dvd player and tv unit.
if you are using a plasma or a lcd tv usually the inputs are: composite inputs- lets you connect a component source like a dvd, vcr, and laser disc. component inputs - lets you connect another component source such as a dvd player. DVI-HDTV - lets you connect an HD receiver with a DVI output.
for example if you select the composite input what you need is a RCA plug which usually a 3 color plug.this picture is an example of commercial rca plug which usually the color yellow use for video and the red and white color for audio..
this is how you will connect those wire into your dvd player and tv unit.look for the component output jack of your dvd player .this picture is a sample of component output jack the color may vary depending tokind of brand or dvd player do you have.
now get your RCA plug then the yellow plug insert it to the Y or video out the red and white plug insert it to the left and right AUDIO out of your dvd player.
now look for the composite inputs jack of your TV unit then get the other end of RCA plug. the yellow plug must be insert it to the V label for video the red and white plug into L/R label which mean for audio input.
after you connect the 3 wires re check all the connections make sure the RCA plug is good and properly inserted to avoid loose contact which can affect the picture and sound quality.
now turn on your dvd player and tv unit.
make sure your tv unit is set to right input you want to use like for example you are using the video 1 input, you need to set to the remote controller into video 1 so that your dvd player must be recognized by your tv. enjoy watching i hope it will help you thanks for choosing fixya as your solution to fix you problem good luck.
Most TVs only have audio out and several audio/video in connections. Unless you have an unusual tv, there is no option for a coax connection from the TV to a recorder.
Since this DVD recorder only has an analog tuner, you need to connect it to a set top box to record signals unless you are looking only at analog channel sources. If you are getting OTA, then a OTA digital-to-analog tuner is needed for most channels. (Only low power stations are still broadcasting in analog.) The cheaper ones that were available with the government coupon were SD tuners. HD content will need a separate tuner. If you have cable or satellite, check the signal (QAM is digital cable).
Next connect the coax from your analog source to the DVD recorder coax in and another coax cable to the coax out and the TVs coax in (if you want to - the pass through doesn't work with a set-top box for non-analog signals). Set the channel to the appropriate one (3 or 4 for the OTA d-t-a boxes; desired channel to watch for analog OTA or cable). Set the TV to channel 2, 3 or 4. Alternatively, use composite A/V cables from the set top box to the A/V Input of the DVD recorder and set the recording channel to Input 1.
Next connect A/V cables (composite or S-video) to the recorder's matching out to the TV A/V or S-video In. Set the TV to A/V 1 or Video 1 depending on the Emerson TV. You can watch tapes or DVDs. For better video quality on DVD playback, also connect component video cables from the DVD recorder Out to the TV's component in (if it is available). Then set the TV to the appropriate component video input when watching DVDs.
Unfortunately, size limitation of what could be attached prevents posting a connection diagram. Still, proposed connection scheme:
4250HDC's HDMI to Panasonic's HDMI 1 or 2;
4250HDC's VIDEO OUT to GoVideo's LINE IN 1 VIDEO;
4250HDC's AUDIO OUT to 2 pcs of RCA Splitters (shown below);
1 pair from the 2 splitters to GoVideo's LINE IN 1 R-AUDIO-L;
the other pair to Yamaha's LD/TV L & R;
GoVideo's LINE OUT VIDEO to Panasonic's VIDEO IN 1 VIDEO;
GoVideo's LINE OUT R-AUDIO-L to 2 more RCA Splitters;
1 pair from the 2 splitters to Panasonic's VIDEO IN 1 L-AUDIO-R;
the other pair to Yamaha's VCR 1 IN L & R;
to watch cable TV in HD quality, set Panasonic to HDMI 1 or 2 by pressing Panasonic remote's INPUT button, then 3 (or 4), then OK;
to hear cable TV programs on Yamaha's speakers, set Yamaha to LD/TV;
to watch DVD or VHS, set Panasonic to Video 1 by pressing Panasonic remote's INPUT button, then 6, then OK;
to hear DVD or VHS on Yamaha's speakers, set Yamaha to VCR 1;
to record cable TV programs, press GoVideo remote's TV VIEW button a couple of times to cycle through the signal sources or until Line 1 is displayed.
The use of the splitter shown below would effectively double the AUDIO OUT of the cable box and the DVD/VCR combo to feed both the TV and the stereo. Additionally, this would allow use of the cable box and/or the DVD/VCR combo with or without the Yamaha.
Your dvd recorder only has rca, red white yellow inputs it wont allow you to record in HD, although you can play your comcast box any hd, regular digital through and record. Hook up the comcast box if HD through preferably HDMI if not get one from comcast. The HD box is the only box that allow HDMI, component and regular RCA and some RF out. This way you can play HD to your set but also record through RCA or RF again will not allow for HD record unless its TiVo. Hope this helps
Our Samsung DVD/VCr all in one combo did a similar thing.
I used the HDMI cable for the DVD into the TV input labeled HDMI/DVD. That worked okay.
But the VCR part didn't work. At one point I got sound but no picture. Using the RCA cables in the back on another input "Component 1"
I was trying to squeeze the best picture out of the player using the S-VHS cable.
I thought it did picture only, but the Plasma seems to be more picky about input sources.
I got everything to work keeping the DVD as a separate HDMI to Plasma TV feed. The VCR was 3 RCA's Yellow (picture) red and white for stereo sound.
I then reset (toggled through the inputs to "reset" the TV.
It finally worked but I was two days mulling it over.
See if this works for you. My TV was a Panasonic Plasma, but shouldn't matter. Skip the S-VHS line and connect the inoputs with the TV off. You MAy need to go into the input of set up menu on the TV (ours had a wrench as an icon) and set the Component 1 or 2 to "VCR".
