The HD box from your cable company only sends High Definition Video signal which DVD does not support. Your DVD recorder "CANNOT RECORD THIS PICTURE" because it can not process (see) the High Definition (HD) Signal.
To record from an HD reviver you would need a HD recorder (Blu-ray) very expensive The standard practice for recording from a HD cable receiver id to use an DVR here is a link to one for about $100 some models will have a standard video output you could connect your dvd recorder to.

Is my Magnavox 1T HDD rECORDER COMPABILE WITH cOMCAST cable Box ?


If your Comcast box has a composite output, you'll be able to record SD shows. Use RCA composite video and audio cables between the box and the recorder. You'll have to set the box to the channel you want to record and leave it on. Then set the HDD/DVD unit to record from video input (L1 rear, L2 front) for the appropriate length of time. The manual explains this. The manual is available from Funai who built the unit with the Magnavox name: http://funaiport.com/upload/MAGNAVOX/Manual/MDR537H_EN_OM.pdf . See pages 19 and 42. If your TV and/or cable box only have a limited number of video inputs/outputs, you may need to daisy chain the composite video cables from the cable box to the DVD/HDD unit's video in. Then connect another composite cable from the DVD/HDD video out to the TV.

This Magnavox unit can only read analog (NTSC) cable video signals without a set top box. You will not be able to record a show and then watch another with the cable box.

I hope this helps.

(I know that my cable system's box has a composite video out. So it does work with most of the Comcast boxes. Many of the manuals are available here: http://customer.comcast.com/help-and-support/cable-tv/cable-box-user-manuals/ )

My husband bought me your DVD Recorder Model No. DMR-EH75V for Christmas in 2006. It worked with my analog TV and a COMCAST cable box. In April 2007, I bought an Olevia HD TV and changed to a Verizon...


Hi,

Due to certain limitations of the Panasonic DMR-EH75V, it can only accommodate composite Video INput and give composite Video OUTput as well as the standard Audio L/R. Additionally, if your Verizon FIOS HD cable box has an RF OUT, that can also be connected to the RF/CABLE IN of the Panasonic.

Please refer to the simplified diagram below.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Tv picture changes and recording is unwatchable when trying to rec one of 4 local channels


It is the signal from the 4 local stations that is the problem, because you can record all others ok. Borrow another VCR and try to record them, if its the same tell the people who run the local channels that they are losing viewing figures, because their channels cannot be recorded.

How do I connect to Sharp HDTV and Comcast cable


Your dvd recorder only has rca, red white yellow inputs it wont allow you to record in HD, although you can play your comcast box any hd, regular digital through and record. Hook up the comcast box if HD through preferably HDMI if not get one from comcast. The HD box is the only box that allow HDMI, component and regular RCA and some RF out. This way you can play HD to your set but also record through RCA or RF again will not allow for HD record unless its TiVo. Hope this helps

I have a Philips DVDR 3575H. using Comcast's


Try this set up-

Use an RCA audio/video cable for this set up (Yellow/Red/White).

Connect from the Video out (Yellow) connection on the back of the cable box to the Video in on the back of the DVR.

Connect the audio (Red/White) cables from audio out connection on the back of the cable box to the "Audio in" on the back of the DVR.

This should still get you a decent picture but not a true HD picture for your recordings.

When you set the timer to record set it to record either E1 or E2 depending on which input you connected the cable box to and ensure that the cable box is tuned to the channel you wish to record.

*** NOTE: If you keep the HDMI cable connected as you have for the cable box and watch normal TV through the HDMI input on the TV you will get HD programming for your general viewing but still have the option to record with the DVR at a lower quality. ***

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

Just want to know if i can get hd channels with a regular comcast motorola dct700 box, if so how? Also, what DVD player should I buy with this, as well as type of cables. TV just given to me, no remote,...


No HD channels on a DCT700, you have to have a HD capable box from comcast. Usually $8.95 a month for box rental. Don't know a lot about DVD players. If you get a comcast HD box, and have an HD TV, you should use an HDMI cable for best picture. Second choice is component cables. Those are the red, white and yellow or red, white yellow, blue and green cables.

Recording with comcast hd box and toshiba VCR/DVD


1st, see if you can get another cable box that offers component as well as RCA outputs on the back. Does your cable box have S Video out and does your toshiba have S Video in? If so, hook up the S Video from cable box to Toshiba. Then hook up R&W audio from Cable Box out to Toshiba In. Set the channel on the cable box to what you want to record. Set Toshiba to record channel 3 or 4, whichever your Toshiba is set on. The cable box controls the channel you are recording. You cannot set the recorder to the channel you want to record. It must be either 3 or 4. Try it. If everything else fails, you have to go cable from wall to cable in on cable box, cable out on cable box to cable in on Toshiba then either cable or RCA out on Toshiba to TV.

SETUP ADVICE NEEDED TO INTERFACE WITH MOTOROLA DCH 70 CABLE TUNER


Take a splitter from the wall and plug it in using a seperate line. You wont get all the digital channels but you can get channels up to 150 to record. Depending on how many av outputs you have on the back of your digital tuner you might be able to take one of those those and plug it into the av input of your DVD recorder. You can get a better picture that way when you record from the cable box vs using coax.

Make sure the splitter is approved for digital cable use. The Radio Shack ones work the best and they are usually the same version of the ones Comcast sells to customers. If you get a brand like they carry at drug stores you will lose picture quality and probably end up with a service call bill as well.

Connecting HD cable box to DVR too HDTV


When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.
