Hi just got a LG dvd/vcr Model RC897T. I have it hocked up right, but i can't get it to switch over so that it would be seen on the TV. can you help


If a cable box is not required for cable signal reception, connect the cable line to the ANT. IN connector on the recorder.
If a cable box is required for cable signal reception, connect the cable line to the IN connector of the cable box. Connect a coaxial cable from the OUT connector of the cable box to the ANT. IN connector of the recorder.
To view or record a CATV channel:
  1. Tune the TV to the Recorder output channel (CH 3 or 4).
  2. Set the Recorder channel selector to the cable output channel. (Example: CH3).
  3. Select a channel using the cable converter.
With this connection, you cannot record one program while viewing another.If you are using a cable box to tune channels, it is not necessary to do Auto Channel Set.

How to set the DVD Recorder+VCR’s RF output channel
Turn off the DVD Recorder+VCR, then press and hold
CH (v/V) on the front panel for about five
seconds to change the RF output channel (CH 03 or
CH 04). “RF 03” or “RF 04” appears on the front panel display.

Solution 2

Cable Service With Cable Box
If a cable box is required in your cable system, follow the
instructions shown below. This hookup permits both TV and
DVD Recorder+VCR operation.
To view or record a CATV channel:
1 Tune the TV to the correct video input channel.
2 Set the DVD Recorder+VCR to the output channel of the
cable box using the CH (v / V) or the 0-9 keys on your DVD
Recorder+VCR (e.g., CH3).
3 Select the channel you wish to view on the cable box.

Problems tuning TV and SLV-900


the video recorder has it's own tuner you do not actually record from the tv... think of the vcr as like a tv but without a screen... connect to your tv via a scart lead and while you are on the vcr's 'channel' (so you could see a tape playing on your tv) and access the menu on you vcr (not the tv's menu) choos auto tune if the vcr supports it or manual tune if it has no auto tune and tune in the required channels on your vcr... it is simply then a matter of selecting on your vcr which channel you wish to record

I have installed your analog/digital converter and it works very well,but I can not find a way to record a live tv program. can this be done?


You will have to have the converter tuned into the channel. Use the AV output lines and plug them into a VCR or DVD recorder using a line in. Tune the VCR or DVD recorder into the line in channel and record that way.

First off, scart has an auto detect feature across pin 8, HDMI does not. If you have turn your TV to the HDMI channel, and at some point turn off the HD source device you are going to get a blank screen, you have to manually turn your TV back.
In regard to whilst you are recording it sounds like you may have tuned in channels on your DVD but not your TV.
Do you have an RF aerial lead connected from the DVD output to the RF on you telly?
Do you have a sky/cable box connected to your TV via scart?
Does the DVD have DVB (digital video broadcast) if so and you have none of the above that is the problem, any tuner running off a single RF lead can only record/play 1 channel at a time. If you have no RF lead going to the TV, then the TV cannot show any terrestrial channels.

If your cable is connected with just a scart lead (in AV2) you just put the recorder onto the AV2 channel. You need to connect the cable decoder to the recorder via an arial lead to be able to tune it in but there is no need just use the AV channel.
