Your hookup is correct- Your VCR needs to be tuned to channel 3 or 4, to match the cable box.

Also, the VCR channel output needs to be matched to the TV. If VCR menu options are displayed on the TV then this part is right. If not, then set either the VCR or TV to the correct channel.

How do you connect a VCR and a Cable Box to a DAEWOO TV that only has one Cable (ANT) connectionn on the back?


The antenna is normally connect to the VCR, which should have ant. IN, and OUT which goes to the TV. If the TV has HDMI input you would connect the cable box that way. You can also get a TV signal switch box, 2 in, 1 out, with a remote to switch it with.

How to connect and record on a VCR when you have a Digital Cable Box.


Do you want to still be able to use that trusty ol' VCR to be able to record your TV shows but can't seem to do so now that you have gotten a Cable Box?
Well here are some simple tips on how to connect all the components and not compromise the quality of the incoming signal of the cable signal feed.

First here are the cables you will need.
3 sections of Coax cable (preferably RG-6 quality)

or

2 sections of Coax cable (preferably RG-6 quality)
1 RCA cable (Yellow/Red/White)

Now here is how you will need to hook up the cables properly.
1) Connect one Coax cable to the incoming cable signal feed. Usually a screw on connector on the wall or line coming up through the floor.
Now connect the other end of this cable to the "Cable in" or "Input" located on the Cable box.

2) Now, connect one end of another Coax Cable to the "TO TV" or "OUTPUT" on the back of the Cable Box. Now connect the other end of this cable to the "CABLE/ANT IN" or "INPUT" connection on the back of the VCR.

3) Now, connect the last coax line from the "TO TV" or "OUTPUT" on the back of the VCR. Now connect the other end of this cable to the "Cable IN" on the back of the TV.

***** ALTERNATIVE OPTION FOR THIS FINAL CONNECTION******

Using the RCA cable connect to the "VIDEO OUT" RCA connections on the back of the VCR and connect the other end of this cable to the "VIDEO IN" on the back of the TV.

Now this is how you will need to set your VCR and Cable box to make your recording.

1) Tune your VCR to Channel 3 or set your timer to record Channel 3. (The actual channel you are going to be recording is controlled by the Cable Box)

2) Tune your cable box to the channel you wish to record.
*** Note: Some cable boxes have an auto tune feature that will tune your cable box to a channel while you gone. Contact your cable provider to see if this is available on the model that you have***

Original-Style Super NES RF to VCR Hookup



Installation Steps:

Locate the VCR's VHF IN [ANT, CATV, 75S(ohm)] or Cable Connector.
Disconnect the existing cable wire from the VCR's VHF IN.
Connect the short, thick wire from the RF Switch (labeled ANT) to your VCR's VHF IN.
Reconnect the existing cable wire (disconnected in step 2) to the silver post labeled ANT on the RF switch.
Connect the thin wire from the RF Switch (labeled Control Deck) to the back of the Super NES (labled RF Out).
On the back of the Super NES, set the 3/4 switch so that it matches the channel of the VCR. Note on Sharp TV/VCR Combo
After the system is connected to the VCR:

Insert the Game Pak firmly into the Control Deck.
Plug the controller(s) into the front of the Control Deck. Use the far left port for player one.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the Control Deck. Plug the other end of the cord into a wall outlet.
Slide the Power Switch to the On position.
Turn your TV and VCR on. Set up your TV and VCR the same way you would to watch a movie on the VCR.
The game image should now be displayed on the TV screen. You are ready to play!
Note: The RF Switch does not produce stereo sound. To get stereo sound, connect your Control Deck using the Stereo Audio/Video Cable.

If after following these directions you are not able to view the game, try our Troubleshooting Tips.

Hi just got a LG dvd/vcr Model RC897T. I have it hocked up right, but i can't get it to switch over so that it would be seen on the TV. can you help


If a cable box is not required for cable signal reception, connect the cable line to the ANT. IN connector on the recorder.
If a cable box is required for cable signal reception, connect the cable line to the IN connector of the cable box. Connect a coaxial cable from the OUT connector of the cable box to the ANT. IN connector of the recorder.
To view or record a CATV channel:
  1. Tune the TV to the Recorder output channel (CH 3 or 4).
  2. Set the Recorder channel selector to the cable output channel. (Example: CH3).
  3. Select a channel using the cable converter.
With this connection, you cannot record one program while viewing another.If you are using a cable box to tune channels, it is not necessary to do Auto Channel Set.

Try video input using a dvd - if you are using a digital cable box (or satellite) use the a/v outputs (yel red wht wires)to hook to video in of TV. If you are using standard cable hook the cable through a vcr if available and hook the a/v of the vcr to video in of the tv.
Otherwise is tv(to be used) on Ch3?
The TV tuner may be defective.
If this helped Vote/rate me.

Cannot connect zenith vcr to zenith tv thru cable box


Hello mcgillicu390,

From your VCR you should have an (RF OUT) and an (RF IN) Connector (these also might be marked as ANT IN and ANT OUT, or CABLE IN and CABLE OUT).

The same goes for your TV (RF IN), (ANT IN) or (CABLE IN).

Now, take your Coaxial Cable (Cable with screw on or Push on connector with a wire in the center of it) and connect it to the TV (RF IN), take the other end of the same cable and connect it to the VCR (RF OUT).

Then connect your cable TV set top box or antenna to the (RF IN) of the VCR.

If you are using a cable box set your VCR and TV to Channel 3 or 4 (depending on your area)

If you are just using the VCR and an antenna set your TV to channel 3 or (depending on your area).

That should do it for coaxial connectivity.

If you are using the composite video and Audio cables to connect to your TV here are the directions for that.


Looking at the back of your TV you will see Three RCA type connectors colored as Yellow, White, and Red. Yellow is Video, White is your Left Audio, and Red is your Right Audio. They should be marked as (Video IN), (R Audio IN), and (L Audio IN). *note these markings may not be exactly like what is written, however the indicators should be close to what you are seeing.

Now look at your VCR, you may see a lot of RCA Connectors (up to 6 of these connectors) don't worry, you are only looking for the ones that say (Video OUT) (R Audio OUT), and (L Audio OUT).

Once you find the connectors on both pieces of equipment, take the Yellow, Red, and White tipped cables and plug the in their respective jacks Yellow tipped cable connects VCR (Video OUT) to TV(Video IN). Red tipped cable connects VCR (R Audio OUT) to TV (R Audio IN), and finally White tipped cable connects VCR (L Audio OUT) to TV (L Audio IN),

Once the cables are connected you will be able to use the composite selection on your remote to view the images from your VCR, the VCR in this case will be acting as the tuner for your TV with out you having to set the TV to channel 3 or 4, you will just have to use the AUX or whatever setting on you remote that allows the composite video to display.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Connecting Hitachi VCR to my Direct TV.


Connect your Direct TV to the Ant. In connection on your VCR. When you want to watch TV, just tune the TV to channel 3 (or whatever channel the Receiver is set for). When you wish to record, set your VCR to that same channel and set your TV to the channel that your VCR outputs to. For simplicity sake, I would suggest setting both systems to channel 3 and just watching your program through the VCR. If you are still using an "off air" antenna, then connect that antenna to the ANT. IN connection on your Direct TV receiver and when you turn off the dish, it will pass the signal through just like the VCR would.

My Zenith VCR is not working with the digital converter box


When the VCR is "off" the converter signal should go right through the box, which you say it does. Then, when you turn the VCR "on" the picture disappears. That, so far, how it should be. To get your picture back while the VCR is "on" you must set the VCR to "receive" channel 3, and use your new converter box to change channels...accordianman
