Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

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..........

Put tape in. Make sure the plastic tap isn't broke on front of vhs tape, if so, put tape over it.
Put tape and vhs in player, turn vcr channel to 04 I believe. Then hit the copy button. Otherwise put on dvd/ hit copy button

VHS to DVD


I just bought at Best Buy the Samsung DVD Recorder & VCR. You can copy your VHS tapes right to DVD and or hook up an external source into the deck and copy them to DVD.  I find it working well but many of my tapes have tracking issues which is becoming a hurdle for myself.

Recording from vhs to dvd


Direct copy VCR to DVD:
- Insert VHS tape you want to copy
- Insert a recordable DVD disc
- Press DVD copy button on front panel or remote control (to DVD).
- To stop recording press the stop button.

IMPORTANT: If attempting to copy copyrighted material the Samsung DVD-VR320 will detect the encoding and will not allow the copy to be made.

HELP! I can't figure out how to Connect my Sylvania DVD/VCR Combo to my older TV


Even if you do get it connected you cannot copy from vhs to dvd as you have bought a vcr recorder with dvd player, not a dvd recorder. You can only record to the vcr tape from a dvd, in the players controls.
