There are also a bunch of combo units (vcr to dvdr) out there that will work. Some even have bypass password for macrovision protected tapes. They are the easiest thing to do what you want to do.

Doing it with a computer takes a long time and if you have windows vista it is hard to find software that works with old capture cards and video capture software. Save you self a headache and just get a combo unit.

Hi you could install a Video Grabber or an Internal TV Tuner card into your computer if its Desktop computer or an expensive USB TV TUNER if its for laptop . Plug in the composite video out from your VCR to the Composite Video in to the computer .Use nero or any other software to build a movie in fact the bundled application software of your TV TUNER or VIDEO Grabber card would be better .

The VCR component used to work fine, but now the video is totally snowy (the sound is fine). In the past, I have solved this problem with other VCR's by cleaning them with a head cleaning cassete. ...


Careful cleaning of the VCR tape head with alcohol and a soft cloth (q-tips sometimes leave fuzz behind) may help, but you could have a problem in the circuit that switches from VCR to Tuner.

How to hook up vcr and dvd together ?


|DVD| -> |VCR| -> |TV|

1. Connect your VCR to your TV. (Using Antena cable or RCA cables.)

2. From your DVD player, choose the AUDIO VIDEO OUT. Then, connect that to your VCR's LINE IN jacks.

(*)Your DVD player has 3 jacks coming out. Yellow-video, White- Audio Left and Red- Audio Right.
If you VCR does not have the RED jack. Go to a radio shack and tell on of the sales person taht you need to connect 2 RCA audio outs to 1 RCA audio in. (He/ She will give you a "2RCA Male to 1RCA Female" splitter)

3. Finally, play your DVD, put your VCR channel in TV and most important select the LINE channel in your VCR. (This channal may called as L1, Line,... etc)

You should be seeing the DVD in your TV now.

If you want to play the VCR, just put the casset and play.

Important- The VCR needs to be powered on in order to the DVD signals to go to the TV.

Cheers!!!!

How do i hook up dvd recorder/vcr to my tv?


Hello.

If its a combined dvd/vcr unit you should be able to record on the dvd input from the vcr with a 3 split cord connected as described below..

VCR -
---------
Video output - yellow.
Audio output - left and right - red & white.

=========================================

DVD
--------
Video input - yellow.
Audio input - left and right - red & white.

=========================================
Or you might have to use a standared RF cable from the
antenna out on the video to the antenna in on the DVD.

=========================================

Additional information....
---------------------------------

Just as you can't copy commercially made video tapes to another VCR due to Macrovision anti-copy encoding, the same applies to making copies to DVD. DVD recorders cannot bypass the anti-copy signal on commercial VHS tapes or DVDs. If a DVD recorder detects the anti-copy encoding on a commercial DVD it will not start the recording and display some sort of message either on screen or on its LED front panel display that it detects the anti-copy code or that it is detecting an unusable signal.
A DVD recorder can be used to copy any homemade videos, such as camcorder videos and videos made from TV shows, and can also copy Laserdiscs, and other non-copyprotected video material. Also, remember that a DVD recorder also has a built-tuner for recording TV programming directly. The tuner can be programmed to record a series of programs on different days and times, much like a VCR. However, if you are recording a non-copy protected DVD to a DVD recorder you can record any of the video content, provided you click on the menu and start the video segments running and you have enough time space on the disc. DVD recorders function like VCRs in that they can record incoming video signals -- however, they do not automatically copy all the contents of the DVD - for instance, you cannot copy the interactive menu functions of a non-copy protected commercial DVD. A DVD recorder creates its own menu functions, it will not duplicate the function menu from a another DVD.

Hope this will help you.

How to record stuff from from T.V to VCR cassete?


Firstly are you talking terrestrial TV or digital?
If you want to record from SAT or Cable connected via scart you will need to select the AV channel that device is connected to.
If you want to record through your Aerial make sure it is connected to the video first then out to the TV.
At this point you need to post more information about, how and what you are doing.
If you are putting your TV onto the channel you want to record and trying to record it, that is not the right way to do it, it IS possible but you dont want to do it that way.

Unit Keeps Powering Off...Will not stay on


The first thing you need to try is unpluging the unit from the wall totally then wait for about 5 minutes then plug it back in and try again,if you get the same results the cassete is probably stuck in the vcr and that is why the it unit shutsdown.It will continuo to do this until thye cassete is taken out without being force.The unit will need to be service by a professional.
