If your vcr has an ant. in and out to tv coax type jacks the signal should pass through when the vcr is off or in tv mode. Make sure tv is on the output channel of the converter box(usually ch 3 or 4). If your vcr is different please give more info.

When using my ps3 I have audio and no picture or picture and no audio when playing games and dvd's. This problem just happened recently, it worked before.


HI, you will have to do a troubleshooting process.

You connections might be faulty,
wrong connection setting,
Wrong resolution setting,
and other related problems.

Some users are reporting that although they are getting images on their TV, the content is distorted when playing DVDs or Blue Ray Discs. The most common cause of this occurs when you hook your PS3 to your TV through a VCR. Some types of copy protection built into older VCR units may cause the distortion. If this happens, just plug your PS3 directly into your TV and by-pass any other components.

Fortunately, most no-picture issues with the PS3 fall into one of the above quick-to-fix situations. If you still can't get a picture on your TV with your PS3 connected, you might want to check the material that came along with your console and look for the customer service number. Hopefully, your warranty will cover any work that might need to be done or provide for a replacement unit.

hope that helps.

need any assistance, you can pass your comments.

Take care

The VCR won't record from a digital terminal.Connection Made according to instructions.Both VCR &digital terminal on channel 03.If the digital terminal is by-passed the recorder works fine.


use scart lead put one end into the digital ( BOX or TV ) out put ( AV1 or AV2) and the other into (AV1) on vcr then change the mode so AV1 shows on vcr display
you can do this by pressing button on remote marked with ( input / source or a picture with a arrow pointing into a tv

I'm trying to get my dvd recorder and vcr hooked up to my new flat screen tv. How do I connect them and what channel do I put my tv on (flatscreens don't have channel 3 or 4) to recognize the dvd recorder...


DVD players do not connect using regular cable connections Your flat screen TV should have separate Audio and Video connections. These are the connections that you should use to connect your VCR and DVD player. If you have a combo unit, that is a single unit that has both DVD and VHS in one box, you might be able to get your VCR to work on the cable connection. However your DVD will not be able to work as the cable connection doesn't allow enough information to pass through. If you go to your local Audio Video store and tell them what you want to connect they should have the cables you need for less than $10.00. Good luck.

Would like to record from my tv to my magnavox dvd/vcr combo box


If I understand your request right, You do not have cable or satellite box.
You can not record from your TV. You use the TV as a monitor from the dvd/vcr combo box. What the box receives is what shows on the TV. So you will have to have a digital convertor hooked to the (antenna in) dvd/vcr combo box, (antenna out to the tv antenna in) Depending on the antenna you are using that is on the other end of your cable-in coax connection this will hook to your antenna in on the digital convertor box. If your cable is hooked up and operating correctly and directly to the tv that is digital ready you probabbly have a good picture. When the vhf/uhf signal was transmitted you could go from the dvd/vcr to the tv with no problem. But now that the signal is digital and the tv is set for digital the dvd/vcr will not pass a digital signal to the tv. Best suggestion, you have to get a digital dvd/vcr receiver. If you have more question please contact me.

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.

I'd like to know where the vcr cable & cable wire from wall


(I own 2 VSX-D903S Units.)

There are NO optical (Toslink) or coaxial connections for Satellite or Cable-TV on this Pioneer unit.

The coaxial connector on the receiver is for connection to an external antenna for FM Tuner (radio) reception only.

Your cable line from the wall would go to your Cable Box, or a "cable-ready" TV or VCR. You would then connect the composite (YLR) or S-video output A/V (S+LR) connection to the VCR 1 input on the back of the receiver. Connect your TV L/R audio and S-video or Composite video output to the TV in connection on the Receiver. (Connect the Composite TV-out connection to a composite video-in connection on the TV.)

I'm not sure how to get the Game cube connected through the VCR/DVD player... the tv only has a cable screw in connection, not the color cables, I have already got it so the VCR is connected to the tv,...


Plug the game cube RCA (speaker type) OUT jacks into the VCRs video/audio IN jacks(RCA TYPE)--yellow is video. You may have to press the tv/vcr button on the vcr to get the picture to pass through--or change your vcr setting to AUX in. but this should work for you-if not let me know.

Proper connections of my new Sylvania Model ZV420SL8 DVD /VCR recorder playback unit


Connect it to your TV set or cable box, just like you would a regular VCR. Then put a blank disc or tape in to record from either the DVD drive or the VCR drive. There should be an easy dubbing button to record from VCR to DVD. (I don't have this particular machine; I have two other brands of combo recorders, and I use them both like I would a regular VCR. This one shouldn't be any different.)

Multiple video inputs


Unfortunately, you cannot use the connectors at the same time. The S-Video connector overrides the standard video connector. This is why they share common audio left/right inputs. If you could use them separately, they would each have their own set of audio inputs. (S-Video does not carry audio signals on the cable.) I'm assuming that you are connecting your Satellite as an input to your VCR, and then your VCR to the TV via a video connection. The VCR passes the satellite signal through unless you are watching a tape, then it overrides the dish signal. You have a few choices here: 1. You can connect the coaxial (RF) output from the VCR to the TV, and watch the satellite and VCR on channel 3 (or 4). You can then connect the DVD via S-Video, and watch it on "video". This is the simplest solution, and provides the best picture quality for the DVD (with this TV), but lower quality for the dish and VCR. 2. You can connect the DVD player via RF (if it supports that), watch the DVD on channel 3, and connect the VCR via video. This will make the DVD picture quality terrible. 3. You can replace the VCR with a combo DVD/VCR unit. You can then connect the S-Video out from the combo unit to the TV. This is a more expensive solution. 4. You can replace the TV with a model that includes more inputs. This is the most expensive solution, but will allow you to watch your DVD over component cables (very high quality) and VCR and dish over S-Video. Ironically, the obvious choice, connecting the DVD as an input to the VCR (as a pass-through) simply WON'T WORK. The signal put out by the DVD player is "copy protected" (using a system called MacroVision) which the VCR will refuse to play, even as a pass-though. Best of luck with this. Given that you are trying to make this all work without replacing equipment, I recommend option #1, until you decide to break down and buy a shiny new HDTV. They are coming down in price every week, but only you can decide when the time is right.
