Question about VCRs

VCR, DVD, TV Connection

I am trying to copy my old VHS tapes to my DVD player. I have a connection comming in from my Direct TV box out to my DVD and then back to my tv. All of this is via cables. There is no problem there as I can watch DVD's without any problems. I have an older GE VHS Plus+ VHS player that just has a yellow and white RCA jacks for sound and video. There is also a connection for a cable in and out to the TV. As I stated earlier, the connection to the cabel connection on the tv is already taken from the DVD. My VHS has no other connections.

Any assistance you can render would truly be appreciated.

First let me say that a dvd player and a dvd recorder are different. the dvd player can only play dvd while a dvd recorder can both play and record dvd that is said. what i understand from what you write is currently is - out of your tv box into your dvd player then out of your player into your tv........ ok some dvd has two connections. line one and line two if your tv box is in line one then you should plug the rca cable in line two in. then you select line two on the dvd player then plug the other end to your vcr in line out so that is out of your vcr into line two of your dvd player.(some times one of the connection is at the front of your player hidden) if your dvd player only have one connection then you would have to plug out your tv box and replace it with the vcr cable and when you finish coping your vhs tape you plug in back your tv box to your dvd player. hope i could help..........

Correct cords


Does your TV have connections (RCA plugs) on the back somewhere? If not, you need an antenna connection from the screw-on connection on the back of the VHS unit to an adapter to your VHF antenna screws on the TV unless your TV is new enough to have a screw-on type cable for the antenna connection. The tape player will broadcast a signal right into your TV over channel 3or 4! Check a TV sales department or Radio Shack for the parts.

Want to copy DVD to tape


If you are trying to copy a commercial DVD then you will not be able to. The only way that you can copy one is to connect an outside VHS player to it. But you will also need a special box which will defeat the macrovision. They are cheap though. Search online for one.

I have a number of VHS-C tapes from my various video cameras in the early-to-mid 1990s that I'm transferring to DVD via my DVD/VCR combo device. But several of of these tapes that have the suffix...


VHS-C and S VHS-C are two different animals. Super VHS-C will have much better video resolution than standard VHS and uses better videotape. A standard VCR will not play the Super format. You need a S VHS VCR. You would need not only a S VHS VCR but also a S VHS-C adapter. Yes, Not even the adapter is the same as a standard VHS-C adapter cassette.

You can send out your few S VHS-C tapes to a video conversion service. That might be the least expensive way to get them on DVD. Otherwise you could look on E-Bay.com for either a compatible camcorder (S VHS-C) or the S VHS VCR and the S VHS-C adapter.

http://vhs-to-dvd.com is one video conversion service that should be able to get your tapes on DVD for you. You could also look locally for a video service that does conversions to DVD.

Have digital TV have 3 yr old sony VHS VCR DVD player combo


A DTV converter box will take digital broadcast signals from the antenna and convert them to a format compatible with the VCR. You will be able to record programs received through the DTV box on your VCR if you could record analog over-the-air programs before the digital changeover. You can use either the RF output or the component output from the DTV box to input to the VCR.

Tv/digital converter box & vcr-dvd hook-up


I have a vhs and dvd player all in one
I have a converter box hooked up to my tv and vcr , dvd player combined
I can play my movies on the tv. ok.
you have to have your tv and vcr set on channel 3. if that is what your main tv is set up with. Or 4 if you have your tv set up with that.
Mine plays ok. My settings are for channel 3
My suggestion would be to check your hook ups. maybe they are not hooked up correctly
I had to go to www.google.com and did searches to help with hook up.
I can also record station I am watching with vcr on vsh tapes. I do not have a dvd recorder.
I found out that you have to have 2 converter boxes hooked to one tv., in order to record on on station while watching another. I have not tried that, as I don't have 2 converter boxes for one tv. I found that by doing google search also. Good Luck
