How to hook up vcr when using a cable box


That will depend upon what you want to do. If you plan to record to the VCR from the cable box, then the cable box will need to directly connect to the VCR, then the output of the VCR is connected to the TV. Unfortunately, most VCRs are analog, not digital, so you will lose HD capability (if you have it) trying to connect this way. You also cannot record one show while watching something else (you will need to be tuned to the channel you are recording). If you want to simply use the VCR to view recorded tapes, then connect the cable box to the TV as per the cable company recommendations, and then make a second connection for the VCR. Of course, your TV will need appropriate and available jacks on the rear to do this. It is difficult to give specifics without knowing the models of the cable box, VCR, and TV.

Restore sound on my Tv, suddenly lost.


  1. Check if the mute button on the cable box/TV/VCR is activated. If so, turn off the mute feature
  2. Verify the volume on the cable box/TV/VCR is not turned all the way down, either by adjusting the volume level on the equipment itself or with the remote control
  3. Check if the TV has an earphone or headphone jack. If so, make sure there are no earphones or headphones plugged into it
  4. Check if the Cable Box/TV/VCR has a SAP/MTS switch (Secondary Audio Program / Multichannel Television Sound). If so, make sure it is set to the proper setting. Consult your TV/VCR manufacturer's user manual for information for your specific TV/VCR. Click here for information on changing this setting on a Cable Box
  5. Check behind ALL TV and equipment (Cable box, TV, VCR, DVD, stereo receivers, etc) and the coax cable at the wall outlet for any loose or damaged connectors
  6. Make sure all equipment and connections are hooked up correctly for the video and audio based on the type of connections being utilized

I have a vcr/dvd combo. Can't record on it, was told that was because the cable here is digital. Is there some sort of adapter I can attach to enable my vcr to work again?


The only way to get your cable company's digital cable into the VCR is to provide a separate cable TV converter box for it.

This will be "an additional outlet" as far as the cable company is concerned - which means you'll pay extra for it. The other problem will be that you will have to locate the VCR cable converter away from the one used to send a program to the TV. This is because there is a very good chance that when you aim the remote to change the channel on the TV's cable converter - it will also try to change the VCR cable converter box.

If however, you have HD service on your TV you should not get an HD box for the VCR - unless there are stations that only exist on the HD converter box. This is because your VCR (like all the others in the world) are only capable of recording the old, analog "SD" or standard definition video signals. If you decide to go the route of an HD and an SD converter setup, you may not have a problem with one remote controlling both converters. Ask the installer (or test yourself) before setting it all up and merely assuming it will work as you expect.

If you end up with two identical converter boxes, you're going to need to either separate them so that the remote will not operate both at the same time. If this isn't doable, you might consider placing electrical tape or similar to block the remote signals from reaching the the VCR converter, and use the channel up / down controls on the converter box itself to tune instead. Since the VCR will only record what is sent to it - you'll have to make sure the converter box is not only on, but tuned to the correct channel before each time you want to record something. This brings up the last caveat, you'll need to set your VCR channel to match the output of the converter box (usually ch 3 or ch 4) and record only that channel. You could simply connect the converter audio and video output to the VCR's audio and video input instead. If you do this, make sure the VCR is programmed to record only the audio and video input ("A / V") instead of a channel.

This can sound a little complex - and it is to some people, but with a little work and some time, you'll be able to do this fairly easily. I wish there was an easier way to do this - but not yet with cable companies so far. The satellite providers are ahead on this with "multi-room viewing" service. Something to think about the next time your cable company announces a rate hike.

I hope this was helpful and good luck!

You don't record from TV, you record from cable so cable needs to be hooked up to input on VCR.
If you don't use cable box you would hook cable to VCR then out of VCR to TV. If you use cable box then you need to connect Video and Audio outputs on cable box to Video and Audio inputs on VCR and switch input of VCR to Line input.

OK! First, you have NO TUNER in that model. It's called a monitor. You have to use a cable box, satellite receiver or use an older style vcr with a tuner in it. With the vcr you won't see HD stations that broadcast in HD. You will see the old style analog.

How do i hook up my hd tv to record hd channels to my vcr


this is a hard question to answer because you cant just record from a tv to a vcr if your recording from an antenna you would have to plug it directly into the vcr and the vcr wouldn't be able to use the digital antenna anyway, if your recording from a satallite or cable u would have to go directly to the vcr then to the tv and the vcr cant record in hd

Can't find where to hook up tv coax.


As far as I can tell your TV is just a monitor. You would have to buy a separate tuner. I had the same problem with mine and found it was cheaper just to use an old VCR. I hooked up the coax wire up to the VCR and hooked the VCR to my TV with composite cables and changed my channel through the VCR. That will only work now if you're using cable because of the switch to digital. If you're using an antenna you will need a digital tuner.

DVD/VCR hook up to HDTV. No audio on DVD or VCR, no video on VCR


When you use component audio, it may shut off the side a/v audio settings. Try restoring all defualts (any changes you have made will be lost by doing so) according to p. 32 of the manual:
Menu --> Setup --> Reset --> Yes
