There should be an output option that you change to NTSC (on your external tuner), Dvr's are pretty "proprietary", and are very sticky about accepting non-proprietary signals. For instance, a sattelite dish dvr, will not accept these inputs, nor will their hard drives re-format or zero out.

Ematic AT102 How do you program it to receive the cable channels when no cable box is needed?


Unfortunately, the Ematic AT102 does not have a tuner for cable television. It only has a ATSC (digital over-the-air) tuner. You need to connect it to an TV antenna and then search for channels. Depending on where you live, you may need an external antenna to get sufficient signal strength to receive local channels. See http://www.tvfool.com for signal strength information in your area.

Older cable signals are NTSC (same as analog over-the-air). Newer digital cable is QAM. (Some channels are broadcast as clear QAM which don't need a cable box with some tuners/TVs.)

To record your cable, you will need a different type of DVR/set-top box. An old VCR or DVD recorder with an NTSC tuner would work to record analog cable. There are a few ATSC converter boxes that also support clear QAM. This is one of the models: http://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp?p=CM-7003 .

I wish that I had better news for you. Other options are available for NTSC, ATSC or QAM tuners. Please add a comment with more information about your cable service if you'd like extra information on these options.

JVC DR-MX1S


It's likely to be an incompatible signal. You have PAL (UK) and NTSC (Belgium), the DVDR/VCR combo may not be compatible with PAL causing it to seem like it's not receiving any signal, when in fact it is - but not in a recognisable format. You may try and get an NTSC to PAL signal converter like this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NEW-TV-AV-Video-System-NTSC-To-PAL-Converter-Converor_W0QQitemZ270163920912QQihZ017QQcategoryZ32837QQtcZphotoQQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem That'll solve your problem.

Tevion tdr930


The TDR930 does not have a digital tuner. It handles the PAL and NTSC video signals. You need to connect it to a set top box and then record on the Line In (composite video) input. The set top box could be a cable, satellite or digital-to-analog OTA converter. Since the DVD recorder can't record HD signal, the regular SD output converter box connected to an antenna will be good.

I wish that I had better news for you.

DVR-625 DTV Receiver can it be used as a camera recorder


YES, it will record ANYTHING as long as it is in correct format. You use the Composite Video, Yellow, Input. and the AV Audio, input, red & White. This should be no problem. You need a camera that is compatible, with your system, either PAL or NTSC.

You have to select the correct External Input, on TV, you do NOT use "Channels" Then select correct format either NTSC or PAL, turn on camera to play, then you should be OK.

Trouble recording on the DVR.


Do you have a Dual tuner DVR? If so, verify that you have 2 cables from the dish plugged into the back, one into each tuner.

If thats not the problem, go into your settings and verify that you do not have one tuner disabled. If both tuners are enabled, check the signal strength. If its good on both tuners and resetting the receiver doesn't fix it, its probably time to call DTV to discuss a new receiver.

No color from VHS on DVD/VHS player


There may be an input selection between Composite and S-Video that needs to be toggled in your Hauppauge software.

Your Hauppauge card may also be in the wrong signal format mode (NTSC or PAL). Your source device and your Hauppauge card need to be in the same mode (both NTSC or both PAL) for the capture to work properly.

If your NV-VP33 is a SCART output, then you may need to check your SCART adapter and your device as not all devices output both S-Video (Y/C - two signals) and Composite (CVBS - one signal) type signals.

If your SCART adapter has both Composite and S-Video outputs, try the other one.

And finally... if you're playing an NTSC tape/DVD in a PAL player, it doesn't mean the output is true NTSC 3.58. Most times it's NTSC 4.43 which is OK for TVs, but NOT okay for video capture devices. Video capture devices need true NTSC 3.58 to sync the color carrier properly.
