I'l make sure, but I beleave L1 and L2 are inputs. You need to select the one where the show comes from, Its it coming from the L1 connector or L2.

Your device doesn't have a tuner input jack. To record TV programs on your DVD/VCR, you need to connect this DVD/VCR to an external tuner device (e.g., set top box, cable box or satellite receiver) that has audio/video output jacks.

Il confirm this and reply to you in a moment.

    I beleave you need to have the device where the show is coming ON and on the right channel.

  • Ekse May 18, 2008

    your product is not that great in recording shows as it needs a outside tuner.

  • Ekse May 18, 2008

    What is your external tuner? - Brand - Model.

  • Ekse May 18, 2008

    Just make sure its turned on and on the right channel. or set to start up at the right time and on the right channel.

    1. To record a TV channel using this VCR, you will need to have a Cable/Satellite box connected to the player. (Important)
    2. Mutiple channel timer recordings using the VCR is NOT possible as the VCR will only record the current channel selected on the cable/satellite box .
    3. You will need to leave your cable/satellite box ON and tuned to the correct channel for proper recording to occur.

  • Ekse May 19, 2008

    There is no way to record difrent channel with this player as it has NO TUNER.

      • WEEKLY - The VCR will record a TV program at the same time on the same channel every week, for example, every Monday.

    6. To set the recording date and time, press until the desired setting appears, then press .
    7. Press to select the appropriate external input channel:

      • L1 if you are connected to back of player

This unit doesn't have a tuner of any sort. Even on the few DVR/DVD recorders that have tuners, the external composite video inputs do not connect to the tuner. To record from the L1 or L2 inputs, you must be using a set-top box (cable, satellite, or digital-to-analog converter for OTA signals) or another video source (video camera or a vcr). Most TVs do not have video output capabilities. If you have one of those, follow the directions for recording from set-top boxes below.

Turn on and set the source to the channel that you wish to record for any set-top box. Then make sure that the set-top box is left on and at the correct channel after you finish setting the frequency, speed and length of time for the recording. Note: if the set-top box is turned off, your recorder will still record the blank video and audio.
What source do you have connected to the VCR?

To record from a video camera or a VCR, set that source to play back at the desired time point. This is best done without the timer. Just start recording and then the playback.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with your video source for more support.

(My OTA tuner has a energy-saver option that turns off the unit when there is no activity for a while. Since I usually record when I'm either asleep or away from home, I had to disable the feature to get the correct recordings.)

I cannot record from tv ? how do you get the channel on that you want to record ? i can dub, play tapes or dvd's, but can't record ?


This model does not have a tuner so you will not be able to record off of tv unless you run your cable box or dish satellite's audio and video outputs through the dvd recorder's front or back inputs(L1 or L2) and record from those sources. Even then the cable box or satellite box would have to be tuned to the channel that you want to record. If you choose to do this you must go to your on screen menu and under setup/general settings/video/video input you will need to select the video input source(L1,rear or L2, front).

Channel selection


L1 and L2 are just line inputs. This unit does not have a tuner so there are no channels to select.
It requires you to be connected to a TV broadcast via a cable or satellite tuner box... and then would only record what ever channel you were viewing. The DVD is a player only.
It sounds like you should have purchased a DVD Recorder or a DVD/VCR Recorder. The players normally do not have a tuner. A Recorder should have an built-in digital tuner. Some also have the old NTSC tuner and may also have a QAM tuner.
