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.

I have a Panasonic TV witch is a combination Video and TV set. I am having a problem with the sound on my tape playbacks. I have tried cleaning the head, changing tapes and nothing is working. There is no...


Is this a HiFi stereo vcr? When you cleaned the heads, did you only do the heads on the rotating cylinder or only the fixed tracking/audio heads between the cylinder and the pich roller?

Does a prerecorded tape ( not a self recorded from that machine play ok?

HiFi vcrs default to the audio head(s) on the tracking/audio head if the HiFi heads on the rotating cylinder are dirty or damaged.

If a prerecorded tap palys fine, then the erase head circuit has failed.

If sound is weak and warbles, worse on SLP than SP, a weak VCR power supply.

Magnavox TV: Somehow the record button on the remote will not record VCR. It ejects the tape and does not record. Please help. Thank you.


Try Using a new VHS tape. If the new tape ejects when press recording, the recording switch inside your VCR could be defective.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

Digital to analog converter box to tv/vcr combo


You will need a splitter and an rf modulator to do timed recording of programs. The instructions are on the dtv answers website, option # 2, record and watch a different channel. The recording is for the analog stations 1-24. You cannot record the higher stations. The items I purchased were a 3 way splitter $7 at local hardware store, an rf modulator $25 at Radio Shack. The other option was to get a cable box for the tv and record off of that at $6.95 a month or a DVR for $8.99 per month, all from comcast. The price that I paid for the items I needed would be repaid in 3 months if I were to go the comcast route. The conversion is nothing more than a money making scheme for them.

Don't know if the red,white and yellow cables have to be hooked up as well as the antenna cable. I purchased the NS-DXA1 converter box. But,my TV dosen't have any A & V input connections.


They do not have to be connected. Just make sure that the signal source is connected to "From Antenna" and from the " To TV (RF) to the TV.
