I know this VCR goes to channel 199 however I do not remember the exact way... I have included a link that has the Manufac. Manual for this VCR in Adobe pdf format. Might be just to set to cable type auto scan... or open all channels. I will be investigating the exact way for you.

Does the JVC DR-MV5S DVD recorder/VCR combo unit have an analog tuner or digital tuner, so that you can record one channel while watching a different channel on your TV?


You can read what JVC is telling about the recorder. It is not an digital tuner, but still you can record a DVD and watch another channel or vice versa.

My jvc dvd /vcr combo will not record. I have the cable from my wall to the input in and the inout out coaxial goes into my tv. however it does not record anything


From the explanation, it looks like you are trying to record TV channel, correct? Some of these DVD VCR combos may not have built-in tuner. Do you have the instruction book? If not, you can download from jvc.com website. If you find it difficult, tell me the model number.

Since they switched to digital TV, my VCR/DVD player will not record a TV program.


The DR-MV150B has both a digital tuner and analog tuner. Since the digital conversion you more likely have not run a channel scan for the new digital channels. Plugging in a digital tuner would work, but is unnecessary. What you probably have to do is run the 'auto scan' feature through the recorders menu. Hit "Home" button go to the "TV" icon and select "Auto Scan". It will take a few minutes, but recorder will scan for digital channels and memorize them.

I am unable to get my vcr to record. To use my vcr i have to turn my tv to channel 3. Our cable company uses channel 4. Please help


If the tv is working with the cable box with the coax to channel 4 ( then with this configuration to send any signal to the VCR actually it is posible to use a splitter with coax and send the signal to the tv and vcr after the cable box. vcr has tobe in channel 4 also, all channel selection is done in the cable box then anything you see in the tv is recorded in vcr. BUT guess what: You maybe can try something else:
If you send the cable from the wall straight to the splitter and then from splitter to the TV and to VCR, now you can record differnt channel than you are watching in the tv but in this case scenario you need to send the vcr to the video input 1 of the tv to play what is record. Any way to install this TV and VCR you not always need to depend in the cable box.

I cannot get my DVR4300 to go in to TV channel change mode while recording a program


Why not simply record a channel tuned into the vcr and use your tv remote to watch a channel tuned into your tv? that is how it is normaly done... don't forget a vcr/pvr/dvd recorder has it's own channels just like a tv does... just no screen of it's own the tv has of course it's own channels and in fact does not even need to be switched on in order for your recorder to record a program neither does the recorder need to be on to use your tv

Chances are that you bought an HDTV ready set which required an additional element to be added into the set in order to get true HDTV channels. This means that you only have analog. just because the set says HDTV doesn't make it a true HDTV recorder. Does it say HDTV ready??
the differences are --what it has on the back of your set. There should be more input output accesses. not just 4 or 6

Timer programming


The remote control is key to timer recording. Notice the selections are color-coded: grey-black for VCR, gold for DVD. Then look at the second and third rows of buttons. Each button has multiple functions depending on if the VCR or DVD button has been pressed. To record from TV signal to VHS, press the VCR very top button. (The controller will also control your TV if set up properly, so be sure the small switch at the top-left of the controller is set to the VCR/DVD side. I use a separate controller for my TV so I never change this.) Now press the "PROG." button located beside the "3" button. (Your television must be on and set to "see" the VCR not the normal TV signal.) Now look at the second row of buttons, the ones with the "+" signs. The grey words below them indicate what they'll do when pressed (the same buttons do what the gold words say when the DVD is selected.) So to set the start time, press the first "+" button with the word "START" below it. That sets the start time of the show you want to record. It'll go in 30-minute intervals if you hold it down, otherwise it's a minute-at-a-press. If you go too far, you can back up with the third row's "-" button. When you have the start time set, move on to the next button labeled "STOP" and similarly set the end-time of the program. Continue with the third "+" button to set the date you want to record. Lastly, set the channel by pressing the fourth "+" button labeled "CH." It's a bit tedious if you have a high channel number to get to. When you have all these set properly, it's important to then press the "TIMER" button (located next to the keypad number 6). That turns the VCR off but "watching" for the settings you've just made, and it'll wake up and do the recording at the proper moment. You can confirm you've got it waiting by looking at the display on the VCR; to the left of the channel number a red "clock" image should be lit. That says it's waiting. You can program several shows to record by repeating these steps, or you can do them all sequentially by setting the first one, then pressing the "PROG" button again (rather than the "TIMER" button) and setting up the next recording. When you're done, THEN press the "TIMER" button and the VCR will go to sleep until it's assigned wake-up time.
