Question about Protron PD-DVR100 DVD Recorder

Hookup for recording in Dolby digital 5.1 surround sound

I have a dish network output that only has audio out left and right. How do I make the connections on the back of the PD-DVR100 to record surround sound? Do I need to connect to the front audio inputs? I've connected to the input at the back at IN 1 audio left and right and do not record surround sound.

    Thanks for the answer. I'll have to look at the input to the DVD Recoreder to make sure it is surround sound.

    Thanks

    Connectding audio/video cables when you have a cable box and sound bar with dvd player


    How To Connect a DVD Recorder to a Television:
    1.If you want to use higher quality cables, then you may want to connect the TV Source (Cable and Satellite only, not Antenna) to the DVD Recorder using Composite, S-Video or Component video and audio cables.
    2.To use composite cables (also known as RCA, the yellow plug is video, the red and white plugs, audio): Plug in the composite cables to the RCA outputs on the back of your TV source and then plug in the composite cables to the RCA inputs of the DVD Recorder. Then connect the RCA outputs from the DVD Recorder to RCA inputs on the TV.
    3.To use S-Video and RCA audio cables: Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video output of the TV source. Plug in the S-Video cable to the S-Video input on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the RCA audio cable to the output on the TV source and the input on the DVD Recorder. Finally, connect the S-Video cable and the RCA audio cable to the output on the DVD Recorder and the input on the TV.
    5. To use Component Video cables and RCA audio cables: Connect the Component Video cable and the red and white RCA audio cables to the outputs on the TV source and the inputs on the DVD Recorder. Next, connect the Component Video cable and RCA audio cable to the outputs on the DVD Recorder and the inputs on the TV.
    6. Now that the TV source (either Cable, Satellite or Antenna), the DVD Recorder and the TV are all connected, you need to configure everything to make sure that TV is coming through the DVD Recorder, for recording and viewing.
    7. Turn on the Cable Box or Satellite Receiver, TV and DVD Recorder.
    8. If you connected everything using the RF connections then the TV should be passing through the DVD Recorder and displaying Television on the TV screen. To record in this mode, you would need to tune to either channel 3 or 4 on the TV and then use the DVD Recorder TV Tuner to change channels and record.
    9. If you made connections using either Composite, S-Video or Component cables, then to view or record TV, two adjustments need to be made. First, the DVD Recorder needs to be tuned to the appropriate input, typically L1 or L3 for rear inputs and L2 for front inputs. Second, the TV also must be tuned to the proper input, on a TV usually Video 1 or Video 2.
    10. If you have a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound A/V Receiver you can connect either a Digital Optical Audio cable or Coaxial Digital Audio cable from the DVD Recorder to the receiver to listen to audio through the receiver.

    I am trying to record to a blank dvd-r. I load a


    If exact model is Samsung DVD-VR357, than it doesn't even has to recognise blank disc as your unit is DVD PLAYER with Video Casette Recorder.

    See Specs. for your unit below:
    Function Combination VCR Y Compatibility Playback Media DVD-R,DVD-RW,DVD+R,DVD+RW,CD-R/RW,CD,VHS, DVD-RAM Playback Formats MP3, WMA, JPEG, MPEG-4, DivX A/V Quality Progressive Scan Y HD Upconversion 720p/1080i Digital-to-Analog Converter 10-Bit/54MHz DTS Output Y Dolby Digital Surround Sound Y Connectivity HDMI CEC Y Convenience Child Protection Parental Control Physical Features Connectivity HDMI Output Y Component Video Output 1(Rear) S-Video Output 1(Rear) Composite Video Output 1(Rear) Coaxial Digital Audio Outputs 1(Rear) Optical Audio Output 1(Rear) Product Weight & Dimensions Dimension 16.9" x 3.1" x 11" Weight 8.8Lbs. Shipment Weight & Dimensions Dimension 20.2" x 7.1" x 15.1" Weight 12.1Lbs.

    Closest model match for DVD recording unit would be DVD-VR375

    Unfortunately you have player only and you won't be able to recor DVDs with it whatsoever.

    Good luck

    Setting up mintek 100 dvd player to cable box to tv


    Newer TVs have multiple inputs. Mr Mark is correct, you generally do not daisy-chain Audio/Video units unless you are using a recording device. Cable box to Cable input on TV. DVD player to other inputs.

    Let's get some terminology out of the way. Specifically for the Mintek DVD-1600. There are NO inputs.

    Coaxial Audio out (orange) is for digital audio only. Usually connects to stereo reciever for Dolby 5.1 surround sound. Not for TV.

    S-Video (black w/4 small holes, 1 square) is for better quality video than composite. Use this to TV instead of Composite if you have a S-Video input on your TV.

    Composite (Yellow) Older video input type. Works just fine. Connect to TV.

    Audio Output ( Red & White) for analog stereo only. Goes to TV. Red=right, White=left channels.

    Component Video Out (Blue, Green White) is the newest video output type in this unit. Better than S-Video. Use this option if available on your TV instead of S-Video or component.

    No color and no audio


    yes , this is why , on your dvd there is a "yellow for video" output on it ,and then there is a "red output jack for right audio"
    and then there is a "white output jack for left audio" does your tv have these inputs?

    the blue , green and red "RCA JACKS" are called " composite video" which seperates the colors of given video

    the red and white RCA jacks are for right and left audio and are required when using composite or the yellow video jack

    there is also a "s-video" connection that is one cable but seperates the colors for better picture quality ( dvd player only)( vcr and tuner do not work with this)

    then there is a optical or coax digital connection for a reciever that decodes the connections audio digital signals for dolby digital surround sound

    Cannot get digital output


    Digital output is for the reproduction of 5.1 or higher surround sound.  Though it will support 2.0 audio it is not meant to be hooked up to a tv, but meant to be hooked up to a surround sound reproduction device.
