The easiest way to make it work is to:
1- run your cable into your new VCR to CATV IN.
2-Your VCR should have come with a short length of cable. Connect it from the OUT jack to the TV.
3- Set the TV to either channel 3 or 4- you need to check the VCR manual to see which channel you have to use. Some VCR's have a small switch labeled "channel select"- if so, set it and your TV to the same channel... your choice.
4- Leave your TV on the channel you set above all the time. You will now change your channels using your VCR. You will be able to record whatever you are watching.
The output of the Dish Network box should be hooked to the input of the VCR. The output of the VCR should be hooked to the input of the TV. The VCR should be on channel 3 to record. Select channel to be recorded on the Dish Network box.
It sounds like you have Dish Network box output hooked to TV input. & VCR output hooked to an aux. input on the TV.
Do both have Scart sockets? If they do you can get a scart lead. All you have to do is set the VCR to the AUX setting that the scart is on and press record!
You won't be able to watch another channel though whilst recording. If you are using the scart socket for say DVD (on the TV) you can get one of these:
1992 tv has an electronic tuner, if it doesn't tune, then you need to replace the tuner, or you can bypass the tuner by hooking up an external tuning source, vcr, cable box, sattelite box, to the audio video jacks and putting the tv on video 1 or 2 whatever input you hook it to.
This monitor with a television tuner does not have a coaxial connection. I was able to get cable by connecting (buying if you don't have) to my dvd/vcr which had the coaxial connectors. Then I ran the video component cable (green, blue & red - had to buy that) from the tv to the dvd/vcr. Then I ran the audio cable (red & white) from the tv to the dvd/vcr. A little tricky figuring out where on the tv to actually connect but eventually got it. YUV2 on the side.
YOU CAN USE EMERSON CODES FOR YOUR ADMIRAL TV AND TV / VCR COMBOS, MY COMCAST REMOTE ACCEPTED 11911. SOME REMOTES NEED FIVE NUMBERS AND MY ADMIRAL ONLY HAS THREE. SO I USED AN EMERSON CODE AND IT WORKED MOST OF THE BELLS, NOT ALL WHISTLES WORKED BUT I DIDN'T HAVE TO GET UP TO TURN IT ON, CHANGE THE CHANNEL OR THE VOLUME. MY KIDS WON'T DO IT ANY MORE!! GOOD LUCK!!!!!
Is your DVD player a DVD/VCR combo? If so, hook the "tv out" (sometimes called "ant out" ) to the "ant in" on the DVD/VCR, then hook the "ant out" of the DVD/VCR to the "ant in" on the tv. Then make sure the DVD/VCR and TV are on the appropriate channel (3 or 4).
If it's NOT a combo, or these instructions don't work for you, i will need pictures of the inputs/outputs of the devices.
