Ok well it may be tough to find a diagram for that but I can definitely walk you through doing it. Need to know what model set top box, what model dvd recorder, and what model old tv. Either that or the types of connections between them all. At least the model of the "old tv" is needed and I can go from there.

Thanks Tim

    Ok well this TV is not really that old by any means. It will have inputs for all your devices.... Do you already have the cables for the set top box and dvd recorder? If so it should be pretty straightforward. What are the colors of the ends of the cables you have, if you have them already. Or do you need to know what kind of cables to get?



    Thanks

    Ok on the back of the TV does it not have component inputs (which is the red blue and green plugs?) Does it at least have another set of the red yellow white plugs on the back of the TV? I am trying to find documentation for this model TV but am unable to do so thus far....



    Let me know, you should hopefully have at least one more set of red yellow and white plugs in the back correct? If so you just need another RCA cable (which is the red yellow and white) that your DVD will definitely have on the back of it as well.



    Thanks

    Oh wait, you have the DVD working, thats good, ok the same comment applies to the set top box... check the back of your TV to see if you have another set of red white and yellow, you should. Also you may have the red green blue, it looks like you should.



    If you do, plug the red green and blue from the set top into there.. The red and white go into the Audio input jacks that are associated with the red green blue back there, it should be clearly labeled (something like component 1 video input - red green blue, then component 1 audio input - red, white)

    Oh I'm sorry, I thought it was a DVD recorder, you mean DVR recorder. Yes you should plug the set top box into the INPUT connections on the recorder. They were attached to each other previously, correct? If so then you are very close to having this up and running. There should only be one set of input plugs that match up with the cables coming from the set top box.

    Oh sorry, yes



    Set Top Box gets plugged into DVR Recorder, then DVR Recorder goes to the TV (which it sounds like you have already...)

    Strange - I've replied twice now... this I think is the third time, but again:

CANNOT GET PHILIPS DVDR3305 TO RECORD ON PANASONIC TV.TX-L37D25B WHILE WATCHING ANOTHER CHANNEL?.


What is your source? Since the DVDR3305 has an analog PAL tuner and most TV stations are broadcasting in digital, you probably have some sort of set top box connected to the recorder. If you change the channel on the set top box, you will record the program on the new channel. If you are recording PAL and your TV has a PAL tuner, you should be able to just record one show while watching another with the DVDR3305 daisy-chained to the TV. Just make sure to change the TV channel not the channel on the DVDR3305.

If your TV has a digital tuner, you can split the signal before the set-top box to record one channel and watch another. (Note: basic splitters will cause some extra loss of signal and may reduce a digital signal below the threshold needed to tune in the signal. An amplified splitter can avoid this - when the amplifier is working properly.) Otherwise, you need a second set-top box (or a dual tuner set-top box).

On my set-up with an aerial antenna, I would put the splitter between the wall jack and the electronics. The incoming cable goes to the splitter, then cable 1 goes to the TV. Cable 2 goes to the set-top box. Tune the set-top box to the channel to record and check the settings with the TV set to the DVD source. (DVD set to record on Tuner (and the specific channel of the set-top box output) or front s-video or EXT1 or EXT2.) Then change the TV back to the TV source and change to the channel for the second program.


The manual for the DVDR3305 is available from Philips. The link to the manual is http://download.p4c.philips.com/files/d/dvdr3305_05/dvdr3305_05_dfu_eng.pdf .
I hope this helps.

(I actually use an A/B switch and do not try to watch a second program on the TV connected to the DVD recorder. However, most of my recordings are for time-shifting of programs that air when I can't watch any TV program.)

How do I record from a panasonic TH-L37S10A TO A DVD RECORDER Thank you


TVs do not usually have a video out connection. The TH-L37S10A is in this group. You will need a DVD recorder with a tuner or a set top box (tuner) connected to the DVD recorder.

Depending on the outputs available at the set top box or other recorder, you may need a splitter to connect your incoming signal to both the TV and the set top box.

I hope this helps.

I need to connect my vcr/dvd combo unit to an Emerson HD TV so that I can record shows. Can you help me?


Most TVs only have audio out and several audio/video in connections. Unless you have an unusual tv, there is no option for a coax connection from the TV to a recorder.

Since this DVD recorder only has an analog tuner, you need to connect it to a set top box to record signals unless you are looking only at analog channel sources. If you are getting OTA, then a OTA digital-to-analog tuner is needed for most channels. (Only low power stations are still broadcasting in analog.) The cheaper ones that were available with the government coupon were SD tuners. HD content will need a separate tuner. If you have cable or satellite, check the signal (QAM is digital cable).

Next connect the coax from your analog source to the DVD recorder coax in and another coax cable to the coax out and the TVs coax in (if you want to - the pass through doesn't work with a set-top box for non-analog signals). Set the channel to the appropriate one (3 or 4 for the OTA d-t-a boxes; desired channel to watch for analog OTA or cable). Set the TV to channel 2, 3 or 4. Alternatively, use composite A/V cables from the set top box to the A/V Input of the DVD recorder and set the recording channel to Input 1.

Next connect A/V cables (composite or S-video) to the recorder's matching out to the TV A/V or S-video In. Set the TV to A/V 1 or Video 1 depending on the Emerson TV. You can watch tapes or DVDs. For better video quality on DVD playback, also connect component video cables from the DVD recorder Out to the TV's component in (if it is available). Then set the TV to the appropriate component video input when watching DVDs.

I hope this helps.

TRYING TO INSTALL DIGITAL SET-TOP BOX WITH DVD AND TV


Hi ccraigo
To answer your question;
Your motorola will connect directly(not through the dvd) to the tv set into one of the input ,(preferably using hdmi or component cables for hd) and the dvd will use a different input,
All you have to do then is switch between which one you want to watch.
Hope this help Cheers

HI if you mean scart connectors on rear of DVD recorder, try swapping scart inputs on DVD recorder and if no joys then on set top box. (some units have 1 input designated for TV and the other for Set top box input)

If it's like the DR620 it will only receive analogue from the TV aerial. I connect the AV out connections on my set box to the inlet AV on the recorder and watch and record through the recorder's "rear AV input" selection.

Dvd recorder does not have tv tuner


sure you can record from your TV. You need to connect the AV1 of the tv to the AV1 of the DVD recorder. Then, when the TV is running, you can simultaneously record on your DVD recorder.

Use a SCART cable for the connection.
