Hi. I have recently purhased an Acoustic Solutions DVDRW300 DVD Recorder. I have no instruction manual and have no idea how to set it up or work it!! Please help as im totally useless!!


Hello!
I am assuming that you want to INPUT your TV/Cable Box to your DVDRW, and have the DVDRW then be able to OUTPUT to the TV.
Here's what you need to do:
1. Locate the OUTPUTS of your TV/Cable box at the back of your set. There should either be the RCA jacks (Yellow/White/Red), S-Video, VGA, DVI or HDMI . Make sure that they are OUTPUTS. It'll probably say TV-out or just out.

2. Locate the INPUTS of your DVDRW. Similarly, it should either be the RCA jacks (Yellow/White/Red), S-Video, VGA, DVI or HDMI. Ensure that they are INPUTS.

3. Match up the outputs to the inputs. Now, I have listed the OUTPUT/INPUTS going from lowest quality to highest quality. So let's say your TV has RCA, S-Video and HDMI outputs, and your DVDRW has only RCA and S-Video. HDMI is ruled out, unless you get a converter (which is pretty pricey). Choose which one, and buy/use the right cables.

4. Here are the connections for each type of OUT/IN. (TV/Cable >>>>> DVDRW)
  • RCA (Yellow/White/Red) >>>>> RCA (Yellow/White/Red)
  • S-Video + RCA (White/Red) >>>>> S-Video + RCA (White/Red)
  • VGA + RCA (White/Red) >>>>> VGA + RCA (White/Red)
  • DVI + RCA (White/Red) >>>>> DVI+ RCA (White/Red)
  • HDMI >>>>> HDMI
5. Connecting the DVDRW back to the TV. So now, you can record whatever is playing live on your TV. But you also want to play things from your DVDRW on your TV. Check the OUTPUTS of the DVDRW. It should have either the same jacks as the INPUTS. Check the INPUTS of the TV.
6. Follow Step 4, and 5. Note that for connections, you are going from the OUT of the DVDRW to one of the INs of the TV. Keep track of what INPUT on the TV you are connecting to.
Voila! Let's test it, though. Now, turn your TV and DVDRW on. Put in a DVD (a movie perhaps) in your DVDRW. On your TV, switch the channel to the INPUT channel you used. You should see your movie. If not, try another INPUT on your TV.
If it's fine, then let's try recording a TV show. Switch the channel on your TV to whatever you want to watch, say Cartoon Network. Put in a blank DVD in your player/recorder. Hit record on the player. Let it record about 2-3 minutes, and stop recording.
Switch the TV back to the INPUT which works, and hit play on the DVDRW. You should see what you recorded.
Hope this helps!

How to hook up to hd tv


Use the highest resolution connection your HD TV will allow. This will usually DR570's HDMI connector. Most all digital video devices have one or more. The DR570 has an HDMI OUT. Connect it to any HDMI IN connector on your TV. You will then need to set the TV's Input selection to the Input Number you connected the DR570 to. See your TV Remote or Manual.

The DR570 has three types of output connection options, in order of quality; HDMI, Component(Red/Blu/Grn RCA jacks), S-Video (circular connector), and composite (Red/Wht/Yel, where Yel is video and Red/Wht are left/right stereo audio). Red/Wht RCA Audio jack connections are required to be made on all Output types excepting HDMI.

Note, to get your Digital channels, you will need to toggle the DR570's DTV/TV button. DTV is Digital TV channels. TV is analog channels, the DR570 found on your Cable or Antenna RF input coax, after you have done the Setup/General/Channels/Scan (extended). Scan only finds analog channels. Extended Scan scans for both Analog and Digital channels found active on your Cable/Antenna RF connection.

Note also, the DR570 is not technically and HD receiver. The term High Defintion (HD) is reserved to mean 1080i or p resolution, the highest available. The DR570 is an Extended Definition (ED) 720i or p receiver. It up-converts its ED to fit an a 16:9 HD TV screen. You will hardly notice the difference on your TV, but it is the difference between watching a DVD Movie on a standard DVD player, like this one, as opposed to a full HD player like a Blue Ray.

I no longer have the manual for the product and I want to hook it up to my TV via a cable box; we have Charter cable. The cable box is a Motorola and it says Dolby digital on the front of the cable box. ...


The white, yellow, and red RCA phono jacks on the back are called VGA inputs and outputs. The Red is
right channel audio, The white is for left channel audio. The yellow is the video. Look carefully on the back of the unit and the input jacks and output jacks should be clearly marked.

There are several other input/output ports. One is HDMI which is flat and wide. Another, not common, is composite video which uses the three above mentioned RCA jacks as indicated plus two more colored jacks. This combination gives a better picture.

A third option is a screwed on cable for input and output. This is called a "F" connector and is only used if the receiver equipment has a built in tuner. The output of a cable box is usually an "F" connector and the above described outputs

If you connect the cable box to the DVD player input and the DVD player output to the TV input, you often must have the DVD player turned on so the signal will feed to the TV.

If the TV has multiple inputs, it is best to connect the cable box to one of the TV inputs and the DVD player to another TV input. Using the TV remote you can chose which input you want to watch. The remote should have a button labeled "input"

When tv is turned on with cable channels picture is snowy. when dvd or vhs tape played through tv the picture is snowy


Try using the video inputs
What to do if you have an all snowy picture (blue screen or the TV displays unusable signal-no signal or no sync)
1 – If you are using a digital cable box or satellite receiver (make sure it’s on) and be sure your TV is set for either CH3 or CH4 (which ever you usually view it on). If you usually view it through video inputs (video1 or 2 etc.) make sure the appropriate input is selected.
If you still don’t get a signal see if you get picture using the DVD or VCR (if available) if you do than plug the satellite or Dig. Box temporarily into the place of the DVD (unplug DVD) you may have to use some A/V cables (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) to hook to the tv from the sat./dig. box. If you get a signal then the sat./dig box is ok. If not the Sat./dig box is not sending a signal and is either defective or needs to be rebooted (unplug wait 5 min try again).
2 – If you are using standard cable or antenna (source) if possible check that the source is good by connecting to another TV. Otherwise try running the source into a VCR and then out to the TV using video inputs (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) and then selecting the appropriate input. Try seeing if the VCR plays using standard CH3 (or CH4)
If the VCR plays on video input but not when connected to CH3 (CH4) then the tuner of the TV may be defective – see if you can use the VCR to change channel using the VCR remote.
