Use the RCA connections of your TV to hook up the DVD/VCR, connect the "VIDEO OUT" of your TV to the "VIDEO IN" of the VCR and "VIDEO OUT" from your VCR to one of the video inputs of your TV. You need the double connection in case you want to record something to a VHS, otherwise, just hook up a cable from "Video OUT" of the VCR to any of the "Video IN" inputs of your TV.

How do I connect to Sharp HDTV and Comcast cable


Your dvd recorder only has rca, red white yellow inputs it wont allow you to record in HD, although you can play your comcast box any hd, regular digital through and record. Hook up the comcast box if HD through preferably HDMI if not get one from comcast. The HD box is the only box that allow HDMI, component and regular RCA and some RF out. This way you can play HD to your set but also record through RCA or RF again will not allow for HD record unless its TiVo. Hope this helps

I have separate dvd player and vcr, how do I hook coverter box up


It took some time, but I finally have this figured it out so everything works.

I have the same setup, but I had one additional piece to the puzzle that I had to figure out. I have an older TV and use and antenna, but had to buy an Audio/Video RF Modulator a couple of years ago to use my VCR & DVD player with the old setup.

Get yourself an Audio/Vido RF Modulator (you can pick one up for about $20-30).
Connect the TV to the RF Modulator.
You should have 2 connectors for your antenna. Connect one to the converter "To Ant" and the other to the RF Modulator.
Connect the convertor A/V cable to "IN" on your VCR.
Connect the cable from converter "To TV (RF)" to "UHF/VHF from Ant" on VCR.
Connect the VCR "OUT" cable to the RF Modulator.
Connect DVD A/V cables to A/V input on VCR.

Your TV should be set to Channel 3 (or 4, depending on your setup) and depending on your "input" connections, you should be able to view vidoes from VCR like this and DVD by changing the input (the button should be on your VCR or other remote). For ex. my input changes on my VCR from channels, to L1 & L2. My converter & VCR play on L1 and DVD's play when I change it to L2.

Now, I just have to figure out how to add the converter box to my universal remote. :)
Good luck!

VCR to TV


Your FIOS box is typically a Motorola Digital Cable Tuner. In order to record from the VCR your FISO will have control of the tuner, not the vcr. If your FIOS has two video outputs on it for video (av connections), one should be plugged into you tv set and the other should be plugged into the VCR input. Your cable tuner will have to be set for the channel you wish to record ahead of time while the VCR tuner has to be set to record the line input at whatever time you wish to record. If your FISO has one video output line (av connections), your VCR has to be set to channel 3 when you record (provided that is the channel your FISO box is set for when viewing TV over the coax cable) and you will have to attach the coaxial output from the FISO into the coax input of your VCR.

The only way around this is to get a splitter and split the coax line so that the FIOS is connected to the coax as it is now and the VCR is connected to a seperate line using the coax input, however using this configuration will prevent you from recording digital channels. If you have a cable ready VCR, it will probably only recognize channels up to 150.

If you really want to get it to record digital channels without the hassles find out if Verizon has a FISO box with DVR to it or connect a Tivo to your FISO. Tivo will tune the FSIO when it records and it's very user friendly to use.

Greetings dexter11,

It appears that there is a gap in the recent technologies. It appears most of the VCR/DVD-R combo's you can purchase will not allow you to "timer record". There are a few from a few manufactures that do allow this but they are the more expensive units with integrated digital tuners.

Now I know you said you were not interested in TIVO because of the lack of a home phone line, but if you have an internet connection it will allow you to use your wireless network to receive programing updates as well.

Happy Recording.

Toshiba D-VR650KU vcr/dvd video recorder


I talked to some very nice people at tech support 1-866-583-7353 and found out that my satellite reciever must be set to 480i, which of course is a pain since like I wanted High Definition. The composite a/v cables (red, white,yellow) are not high def and are part of the reason. I have TiVo and when recording a movie from TiVo to the DVD it states there as well to set the reciever at 480i. Once I did this I was able to record from the Sat to the DVD. I did a quick review and I couldn't find a combo set or just a dvd recorder that has component video cable (red,blue,green) or HDMI inputs at all, I'm thinking that all would have to be recorded at 480i.
