First you should know that the uk system is pal and the usa system is ntsc. ok connect your cable box using the rca cable to your converter then out of your converter to you tv. the converter box should have buttons for out and in now remember that pal signal is going in to your converter (it should automatically selected it) but you would probly have to select the signal that is going out of the convert and the signal going out is ntsc so make sure u select out signal to be NTSC. hope i could help

How to record on a SOny SLV-N77 with a cable box


Hello
If the cable box you uses has audio video OUT sockets, then you can connect that sockets to the audion video IN to the VCR and can record the signals which you want. If it has no such audio video OUT with it, it will be very difficult to record programmes. But there is an other possibility; It is, if your TV has an AOUDIO VIDEO OUT sockets with it, you cn connect that to the AUDIO VIDEO IN to the VCR and can record the programmes. But in this case, you must switch ON all the devices, that is, Cabel box, Tv and VCR. OK.

Hi,can I record digital transmissions on my sony slv-se820g vcr barry


You can record a digital TV signal on a VHS VCR but only in analog format. The digital signal must be input to the VCR by some component which has a yellow composite video output and a white audio output such as a digital cable TV box or satellite receiver. For over-the-air digital TV, either the TV must output analog video or you need a DTV converter box connected to the VCR. Bottom line, the digital signal must be converted to analog for the VCR since VHS VCRs generally are analog recorders.

Have Sony VCR model SLV-N80/N70 . Cannot get it to record using Samsung TV model SLV-N80,N70.


The television has nothing to do with recording. It is only required for playback. There are a number of possibilities depending on what equipment you have. Do you have cable, satellite, antenna? Your signal source has to be connected to the VCR either through the cable connector, or RCA video jacks.
If you have straight cable, connect the cable to the "ant in" connector on the VCR. The VCRs tuner will select the channel you want to record. If you are on antenna, you will need a Digital set top box (STB) to receive any channels.
If you have a satellite, cable box or digital STB, you must go from the output of the box to the input of the VCR. You can use the standard coax cable,but I would recommend using the audio/video cables for better quality. If using coax, the VCR will have to be set to either channel 3 or 4, depending on the boxes output setting. Using A/V jacks, the VCR will be set to "Line" or "Video" input.

I HAVE A mATSUI vcr Vx1105 but cannot tune it how do I do this


Do you mean that you can't receive any channels with the built-in tuner? In that case, the problem is that the tuner is analog and most stations world-wide are broadcasting in digital. You will need the appropriate digital-to-analog converter (set-top box with tuner). These directions assume OTA signal and an appropriate antenna. If you have cable, check your output and the specs of the cable tuner versus that of the VCR. Most VCRs can only tune in signals that come in over the RF input (coax). If the tuners aren't compatible, you can still record.

In any case, when you use a set top box, set the VCR to the appropriate input channel. (On some VCRs this was Line In or channel 3 or 4 but check your manual. I know the RF output to the TV had to be between 53 and 67. The documentation for the input isn't something I remember for this model.)

If you mean that you can't get tapes to play correctly, try cleaning the VCR. (You can either use a cleaning tape or isopropyl alcohol on cotton swabs after opening the cover to the VCR). Next you may need to adjust the tracking of the head. See your manual - there are buttons to adjust the tracking on the original remote.

I hope this helps.

SLV-N750 compatibility with DTV signal


As long as your cable company converter box is feeding your VCR, you should be ok. The cable box should convert to analog which is what your VCR records.

Pal to NTSC


Hi, Based on your post/description, you need to get a multi-system TV to go with your multi system VCR if you are going to playback VHS tapes from different regions. You are quite correct "Plays NTSC tapes to NTSC, Will not Play Pal to NTSC" to play PAL (even Secam) you would need a PAL/Secam TV. They have a different system for color and audio. In some cases, you can still play PAL but you get it in black & white and picture squeezed from top & bottom. Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck and kind regards.
