Question about LG RC389H DVD/VHS Recorder
The purpose of the INPUT sockets on the DVD/VCR is for recording, but this cannot be done by connecting it to the TV OUTPUT. A TV cannot "send" its picture to another device for recording.
In order to record, the DVD/VCR input sockets will need to be connected to corresponding OUTPUT sockets on the set-top box or a connection directly to the aerial/co-axial cable. This can be done by inserting a co-axial splitter on the aerial cable before it reaches the set-top box. The DVD/VCR's built-in tuner will then need to be tuned before you can record. You will also need another cable from the OUTPUT sockets on the DVD/VCR to the TV for playback.
There are many different ways to configure this. Much depends on what OUTPUTS and INPUTS are available on your set-top box or TV.
If you would like me to "draw" some diagrams of possible set-ups for you, I can, however you will need to let me know the following details:
1. Brand and exact model number of TV
2. Brand and exact model number of set-top box
3. How is the set-top box currently connected to the TV
4. How is the set-top box currently connected to the DVD/VCR
5. How is the DVD/VCR currently connected to the TV
This information is required so that I am able to work out which sockets are currently being used and which ones are still available for setting up the DVD/VCR.
Hope this helps. Please post back with the above information if you need further assistance.
