    I have powered rabbit ears; how do I get it to tape using the converter box channels (it now keeps taping from the fuzzy channels with no antenna)?

  • historyguy Jun 03, 2008

    Nope, when I try to tape,  it insists on going through the antenna instead of the converter box.

    If I try to set a timed taping, for example, it will tape channel 10, but it will be fuzzy and not the clear picture presented on the converter. However, if I start taping using the remote, it tapes whatever channel is on the converter, in other words, channel 10 (really 10.1) is really clear.

    I hope I have explained this better.

    1. The Toshiba is a tv/vcr/dvd combo, does that matter?
    2. There is no "f" connector, there is an "RF" connector.
    3. I used to tape using timed settings before with no problems.

First of all, you will only need a box if you are currently using an exterior antenna. If you have sable or satellite, no box is needed. If you need the box, it will allow normal operation of the set. That means that however you tape now will continue to work.

    WIth the converter box, the HD digital broadcast signal is converted to an analog signal that the TV can understand. If your reception is better with the digital signal, the VCR will still be receiving the analog signal through the "F" connector on the back of the set. If you are currently having problems with taping, these problems are independent of the conversion. In essence, the converter box will present similar signals to your TV as exist today.

Can not get to hook up ot tv


Your new TV is digital. Your VCR is for the obsolete analog NTSC broadcast standard. The two devices are totally incompatible. There are converter boxes available. The quality of the playback will be very poor compared to the picture you now see on your high definition digital TV. The NTSC picture is made up of 525 lines. The best home VCR reduced the resolution to about 350 lines. Your new TV is very high resolution by comparison with a much larger screen in all likelihood. The large screen will exaggerate the poor quality. The process of sending the signal through a converter box will reduce the resolution even more, although digital enhancement with a computer or a dedicated device can marginally improve the results. In the end, you will probably be very unhappy with the resulting picture. If you have video tapes you need to convert them to a digital format using DVD or BlueRay disks, for example. Once converted, you will need a a BlueRay or DVD player for playback to your TV. There are devices for making the conversion or you can send you tapes to a company that will covert the tapes for you. If you do a google search, for video to DVD conversion services, there are many choices. I would suggest that you just have your tapes converted to archival quality DVDs. The sooner you do it, the better because tape degrades in a relatively short time. The tape has a sync track along one edge and as the tape stretches (they always do) by just sitting on the shelf or being played, the player will no longer be able to play the tape and your memories will be lost forever.

I have just bought a 40 inch HD LCD TV, I want to purchase a combo VCR/DVD HD to be able to record channel 11(the new free to air channels HD). Big W gave the model No. RC 689 D to me but they were not...


The VCR/DVD combo that you purchased will be able to record what you wish to a VHS tape at low quality or to a DVD at a higher quality.

  1. Coax cable (round and screw on) from the antenna to VCR/DVD
  2. Coax/AV/HDMI cable (only need 1) from the VCR/DVD player to TV
  3. TV on and turned to the input matching the cable you used in step 2
  4. Turn on VCR/DVD and use the remote control included with this unit. Not the TV's
  5. Turn it to the channel 11 on the VCR/DVD
  6. Put in a VHS tape or DVD-R to record onto
  7. You will be able to hit record whenever the show comes on or used timed recording in the menu to schedule it ahead of time

I have a Sylvanis VCR/DVDcombo and a Standard TV.


The converter box receives hte digital signals and converts them into either channel 3 or 4, or into direct video (red,white,yel). The output of the converter box must go into the VCR input for recording to work. Before the conversion, the tuner of hte VCR would receive the RF signal the same as the TV. The tuner inside the VCR is an analog tuner not digital, so it needs the conversion too. Most converters will provide both the A/V signal (R/Wh/Y) and RF (coax connector).

Hope this helps,
Dan

Comcast Digital Conversion box (cable TV)


You will have to split the signal before it goes into the digital box. The digital box is not allowing the analog signal to go to your vcr so you will only be able to record what you are watching on the cable box (on channel 4). If you split it, you will get all your analog channels back on your VCR (the way it was before the box was added).

Can we tape digital feed on a VCR and play it on an HD-ready tv?


You should be able to accomplish this. Run the antenna to your converter box. Run the video and audio outputs of the digital converter box to the inputs on your vcr. Your vcr should then be able to record the program (select line-in as the channel when setting up the recording). Hook your vcr audio and video output to your tv.
It's best to use a converter box that has an event timer - this allows the converter box to turn on at a specified time and channel. Otherwise you will need to manually set the channel you wish to record on the converterbox, and leave it turned on.

Take the unit back to the store and exchange it for an other unit of the same. The likelyhood of two units not working is very slim, and good luck with your new unit.

PAL to NTSC conversion


This is not a converting unit, it will play the format of the tape inside. To convert the signal you need one of the following:

1) A converting VHS player; they are fairly expensive.
2) A separate video converter (hardware); they run for about $200-$500; just put this between your VCR and the TV.
3) Capture the PAL on your computer using a software like Movie Maker via a Firewire cable. Than convert it to NTSC on your machine using software like Nero... do a search on Google for converting software. Or just watch it on our computer in PAL format, most computers do that... For this step I use a separate camcoder that has a passthrough feature. The VCR connects to it and the camcorder connects to the computer via Firewire.
4) send the PAL tape to a specialized shop for conversion. They normally charge $30-$40 for a regular 2h VHS tape.
