Question about Samsung DVD-VR357

No Signal from Tv

In trying to record a program from my Mitsubishi Hi-Def tv, I have tried every possible connection combination and cable configuration I can think of, but "No Signal" keeps showing up on the screen. The unit only allows three imput selections: DV (digital video?- couldn't find it in the book), AV1, and AV2 (couldn't find it on the back of the unit). Is this unit capable of recording from TV? Any suggestions? Help!! The Mitsubishi has output record jacks on the back. Thanks!

    Yes, the signal can go through the cable box first, then to the dvd recorder, then to the tv. I have tried this connection already, hooking up s-video from the cable box to the s-video imput on the dvd recorder. The dvd recorder still claims no signal.

This DVD recorder does not have a tuner so it needs a signal that is already tuned and formatted properly.

What type of connection are you using? Are you certain you are connected to the output on the TV? You probably have to pick the output using the remote for the recorder. I am trying to dig up the manual so that I may offer better advice.

    BTW AV2 is under the panel at the front of the unit.

    Do you press the "input sel" button on the remote of the recorder to toggle between the available inputs?

Make sure your cables are ok and well fitted. Or use different cables to test them.

    The DVD-VR357 does not have a TV tuner. Recording TV broadcasts is possible via Connection to Cable/Satellite boxes and Multi Channel Video Services

Hi .. need to connect my tv audio through my pioneer 5.1 home theater.I was using normal video audio cable ...shall i use component cable???pls advice


"Component" cable refers to the 3-wire hi-def video connection. It's irrelevant to audio.

Assuming you get all your TV programming through a cable box...

The TV wouldn't actually be a source of audio.

I would advise you to route the Cable Box's BEST DIGITAL audio directly to the Pioneer model number ????? (which would be helpful to know for this conversation).

Run the cable box's normal analog audio to the TV so you can watch it without the Pioneer turned on.

And route the best Cable Video (HDMI, Component?) directly to the TV. Unnecessary paths through the receiver can degrade the signal.

Can get analog stations recorded but not hi defination


Hi, unless the VCR/dvd recorder is hi def then you won't be able to.

Hdmi connection is hi-def, I think you can have a hi-def signal through composite, but it's your recorder thats the problem, it cannot read the number of line a hi-def signal has.

I have just found this.

Have magnavox dvd recorder record direcTV DVR programs w/ hdtv


I am unfamiliar with this unit.
If you have scart connecters on both, connect av2 on the tv to av in on the recorder. set the recorder to record from av source.
You should now record a program, I think the static is the fact that composite is out from the dvd only, not an input, and in on the tv, not an output.

How can I get audio and video out from my tv if it only has audio and video in.I'm trying to connect a dvd recorder to record programs off the tv but tv does'nt have output signal.


connect dvd input cable (three banana plugs red, white, and yellow) to the video and audio output on a vcr, then take a screw on cable from the Ant. to the vcr. you will have to tune the vcr to the programs channel to record the picture. The vcr manual should tell you where the signal will be going, The picture should also go to the tv on ch 3 or 4 as when you play a vcr tape.

DMR E55 timer recording won't work


Your recorder doesn´t have a digital tuner, let alone an HD one. You can record digital programs via your TV tuner if it gives a signal out. Connect your TV to AV1 or AV2 on your recorder and program the recorder to record from the one you chose. You must program the TV separately (I don´t know if this is possible on your TV) or leave it on and on the channel you want to record.

DTV Converter hookup


Is it possible to record TV programming on a VCR when using a DTV converter? h1 = document.getElementById("title").getElementsByTagName("h1")[0];h1.innerHTML = widont(h1.innerHTML); Hi,

I had the same problem and found this answer that worked for me. Hope this does the trick for you.

Simple stated, your VCR must be set to channel 3 also. Check it out.

woody



  1. You must have the VCR tuned to record on channel 3.
  2. You must have the VCR connected to output signal of the DTV converter box. In other words, the converter box must be connected between the antenna and the VCR. So, the likely configuration you would use with a coaxial cable is antenna to DTV converter to VCR to TV.
  3. You must tune the DTV converter to the channel you want to record prior to recording. The VCR won't be able to change channels on the DTV converter.
  4. You will be able to use the timed record function on the VCR but you must adhere to steps 1-3.
If this sounds freakishly familiar to recording on a digital cable or satellite set-top box, you are right. It is exactly like recording a signal from a digital cable box or satellite receiver. While it may be inconvenient to perform the steps above, at least the option still exists to record on a VCR while using a DTV converter box.
Disadvantage of DTV Converter: You will lose the ability to watch one program and record another with the DTV converter. Sorry for the bad news.
The reason is the tuner. The VCR tuner is useless with digital except for recognizing channel 3. The digital converter is a single tuner item so it only receives one station at a time.

Connecting my Humax Series 2 Tivo to a Motorola HD DCH3416 Cable Box


Yes, the Tivo will just record in standard definition, instead of high def.

You can still hook the two up together, though.

What I would suggest (and have done in the past) is this:
Split the cable coming out of the cable box.
Hook one up to your HD cable box, and the other up to the Tivo.
Hook the output of your HD cable box to one HD input on your TV
Hook the output of your Tivo up to a different (non-HD) input on your TV.

This will allow you to watch HD while recording standard definition, and vise versa.

Running the HD through the Tivo will work, but will limit you to not be able to watch HD through it.
