It depends what you are recording from. Most newer tv broadcast will block the recording by injecting copyright code into the stream. It forces you to get a dvr system from the company like cable or satellite. Because of the new digital broadcast it makes over the air recording to vhs difficult. More for the fact that you have to hook a converter box to the vcr to get the signal from digital to analog again. Here is the link to the manual. http://archivos.diagramas.mx/otros/VCA582U.pdf
If the TV has a scart then you don't need to tune it. All you need do is connect a scart to the VCR and TV. Then when you want to record anything, set the VCR to an AV setting instead of channel 1 etc. You need to set it to the one with the scart, as the VCR will have more than one AV looking at it's picture. You then just press record. You won't be able to change channel, or the VCR will record that channel instead.
If this is a problem, get a freeview box and just have it connected direct to the VCR.
If the TV has only one scart, you can get one of these boxes below.
Your VCR is no longer capable of recording "off air" tv signals. All tv stations are now broadcasting in digital format, your VCR is analog only. You can however get a digital converter box that will receive "off air" digital signals and convert them for recording on your VCR. CLICKING HERE will give you all the information you need to hook up the converter box... Good Luck!
do you have cable? if yes both tv and vcr should be on ch #3 (to record).......ok no cable you are already set up look at tv right....just need to record..you need your vcr remote.....turn on vcr...press the menu...go to ch settings..auto scan will look for and lock in your channels...also make sure the air/cable selection is on air (unless connected to cable)....hope this helpful....feel free to rate
The way to connect them is as follows:
1. Connect the cable from the wall to the cable input on the cable box.
2. Connect the cable box RF output to VCR RF input (VCR must be on channel 3).
3. Connect the RF output from the VCR to the RF input on your TV (TV must be on channel 3).
After all the connections are done, leave the VCR and TV on channel 3 and use the cable box to select the channel you want to record programs from.
You need to have an antenna in (from TV antenna or cable). Set the VCR to that channel and press RECORD. Or use the on screen menu to set up the recording time/channel
You really need to have a manual to find the step by step instructions for your VCR. Go to this website and search
for a VCR manual from Sharp. I was there and did not find the exact manual.Download a couple of ones that have similar model numbers and follow the process.
I lost my manual and the biggest issue of getting this set up is getting the vcr to the channel you need for play back either channel 3 or channel 4. To change the channel you hold the power button and the tv/vrc button at the same time till you get the channel you want. Three flashing lights is channel three, four flashing lights is channel 4. every time the power goes out mine resets to channel 3 and will not play videos until I reset to channel 4. Hope that helps.
