What cable type/connection type are you using to connect the converter to the VCR? Are you using the composite (RCA) connection to a video input on your VCR or the RF to antenna input on your VCR?

If you are connecting via composite then you need to record on the video input and not a specific channel, then set the converter box to the channel you want to record.

If you are connecting via RF then you need to program your VCR to record channel 3, then set the converter box to the channel you want to record.

You can only record one channel at a time, if you change channels your recording will change to that channel.

    If you provide the model/brand of your VCR and even the model/brand of your TV I can assist in connecting everything together properly and how to program the VCR.

    Do you have to put the TV on channel 3 to watch from your converter or do you put the TV on video? Is the VCR connected between the converter and the TV?

    I made this diagram to help you ensure you are all hooked up right:






    From what I am understanding though you just need to make sure the VCR is also recording channel 3.

Timer record on vcr/dvd attached to digital convtr box


You have to set the vcr to channel 3 or 4 (whatever the converter box is set to broadcast on). The signal to record has to come through the converter box. Since the VCR only has a analog tuner, it cannot pick up any digital channels on it's own.

Can we tape digital feed on a VCR and play it on an HD-ready tv?


You should be able to accomplish this. Run the antenna to your converter box. Run the video and audio outputs of the digital converter box to the inputs on your vcr. Your vcr should then be able to record the program (select line-in as the channel when setting up the recording). Hook your vcr audio and video output to your tv.
It's best to use a converter box that has an event timer - this allows the converter box to turn on at a specified time and channel. Otherwise you will need to manually set the channel you wish to record on the converterbox, and leave it turned on.

Insignia NS-DXA1 - Digital to Analog converter box


I have had my converter box 5 days now. I hooked it up to the TV and set it up. No Problem. Except there are no instructions on how to set up the VCR/DVD player with it, which we use more than we do watching TV. Everything worked fine until on the second day we had it I read I could program the remote to turn the TV on and off. I followed the instructions and the TV went off. When I turned it back on, my remote went berserk. If I try to change a channel it will quickly flip through all the channels until I turn the converter box off. Same with the volume, it goes up and down, up and down until I shut off the box. The remote does not work unless you are about 1 foot away from the box. And the remote has never turned the TV on or off except that first time I programed it.

ZENEITH DTT900 ANALOG TO DIGITAL CONVERTER BOX CONNECTIONS


Can't go through the VCR in the normal way. The DTV box must be tuned to the channel you want to record and left there. Cannot tell VCR to tape one channel and watch another nor tape multiple timed and multiple channel shows unless the DTV is tuned to that specific channel. This makes most VSR functions useless.

Memorex MVD4544 VCR will not record


Take the unit back to the store and exchange it for an other unit of the same. The likelyhood of two units not working is very slim, and good luck with your new unit.
