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.

I have lost the manual and would like to hook up the VCR to my TV in order to record programs. Can you help? JVC Video Cassette Recorder HR-D18OU Thank you.


Is the incoming signal OTA or cable? (If cable, is it analog (CATV) or digital (QAM)?)

Most TV's do not have a video out but you should check your TV. Assuming the usual TV with no video out, then you will need a set top box to record any program other than analog signals (CATV or a low power OTA option). The VCR only has an NTSC (analog) tuner.

For an OTA signal, take the coax from the antenna to a digital-to-analog converter coax in, then coax out of the converter to the coax in (tuner) of the VCR. Then set the VCR to channel 3 or 4. Set the switch on the converter. (Some VCRs will record Line In or Input, so you could use the composite out of the converter to the VCR.) Then coax out from the VCR to the coax in on the TV and set the TV to Channel 3 or 4 as well. Set the switch on the VCR. (Alternatively use the composite (A/V) out on the VCR to the composite In on the TV and set the input to AV1 (or whatever the TV calls the input). Digital cable will be set up like the OTA, except for using a cable set top box instead. You may want a splitter to allow for watching one program while recording another. In that case, put the splitter before the set top box if the TV has the digital tuner. Otherwise put it after the set top box. In both cases, you will need to use the AV (composite out) on the VCR to the TV.

For analog cable, take the coax cable and connect it to the VCR's coax in. Then connect the coax out or AV out to TV.

Set the VCR to the desired station and press REC. For timed record, enter the menu and set the time to start and end the recording as well as the channel. If you are using a set top box, set that to the desired station and then press record. (Leave the VCR set to Line in or channel 3 (4) as needed.)

Manuals for some JVC vcrs are here: http://support.jvc.com/consumer/product.jsp?categoryId=CATG0002&productId=PRD4600001&archive=true . A manual for a similar model will help since they all connect the same way. However the HR-D18OU is not in the list.

I hope this helps.

Lost manual. Cannot get HR A591U JVC VCR program to record a future cable tv program. Seems I have tried everything but it does not record as I set up. It will record an existing show by pressing...


Timer Recording JVC VCR HR A591U
Timer recording can be programmed on-screen with
the remote control. The built-in timer allows automatic
unattended recording of up to 8 programs within 1
month.

EXAMPLE: Program a timer recording for the 26th day,
channel 125 (CATV), 11:00 - 11:30 PM on timer program
number 1 (Tape speed: EP).

When a TV is connected with an audio/video cable, turn the
TV and this VCR on and select the video input mode on the
TV.


• After timer recording is completed, the VCR turns off
automatically.
• You can program the timer recording while a regular
recording is in progress; the menu screens will not be
recorded.
• The timer recording will start at 20 seconds before the time
you predetermined.

Press MENU on the Remote.
Check the “TIMER REC SET”
option is selected, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select one of
the program lines, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select the
date, then press ENTER.

Set the start time, end time,
channel and tape speed as in
step 3.
NOTE: To record from external
source, press SET –/+
and set the channel to
"L". "L" will appear next
to CH 125 (or 69).

To enter other programs,
repeat step 2 through 4. Or,
press MENU twice to return
to the normal screen.

Press TIMER on the Remote.
The power will go off, the
TIMER REC indicator ( ) will
light and the VCR stands by
for recording.

To cancel a program:

Press the SET –/+ to select the
“TIMER REC SET” option in the
MENU. Then press SET –/+ to
select the unnecessary program,
and press CANCEL to cancel the
program.

Connect vcr to jvc c2033us tv


You will need to put your aerial into the rear uhf socket of the VCR then take another connecting lead (flylead) from the out of the VCR & put this into the aerial socket of the TV. You will now need to select a channel on the TV (best to use channel zero) & tune the TV to the VCR signal. The best way to do this is to put in a recorded tape eg a film /press play/ then tune the TV until you pick up the playback of the film, then store this on the TV. This will give you your VCR channel. You will now need to tune the VCR to your broadcasted stations so that you can record.

How do I use my VCR with the DTV Converter Box that I had to get?


You only have three choices that I know of. The first two are a bit expensive though. 1) Buy a digital TV, then you could split your antenna cable to the TV and Converter box. Then use the converter box as the tuner for the VCR. 2) Buy a digital VCRand do the same thing using the converter box as the TV's tuner. or 3) Get a second Converter box and split the incoming cable between the two, using one for the TV and the other for the VCR. If you use any of these ideas, remember that You need to not have the VCR and the "new" tuner for the TV set to play on the same TV channel, and that you switch teh VCR out of VCR mode with the TV/VCR button, so that you get a clear signal on the other channel. If anyone has an easier solution, I too would like to know about it, seeing as I am in the same position and would like to avoid this problem as well.

VCR/Cable TV Connection


I guess you are using the cable TV feed looped through the VCR to the TV set.

Make sure you did not confuse the in and out loop of the VCR.

In the VCR menu, or on the remote there is usually a button called TV/VCR (Video). Make sure it is in the TV mode to watch the cable. In the VCR (Video) mode, the TV must be on the VCR's designated channel to watch the VCR, and the VCR tuner is used to watch the cable channels.

S video connections the one with 4 pins on it and a square plastic pin in the middle only go into a special connector on the monitor or TV set and if you have an S video input on the TV thats the way it works. If you have regular video out of the deck and no S-video jack on the TV and no special input selection on the remote or input button your out of luck. You cant adapt this easily as S-video is luminance and chromance on seperate channels and regular video is all on one wire.

Timed recording


Hi.

Check in the tuning or preset menu that all the channels you should be able to record are tuned in & look to see if you have set any to SKIP.
If any are set to skip unskip them.
