My main problem was the order of connection and the antenna. Antenna went to the stb then cables to the dvd then cables to the tv with no other RF cable to the tv. I went back to the retailer who sold me the dvd. Thanks for your interest. I guess mine was a relatively simple solution but I had some doubts with the numerous ports on the new dvd. You have a great site. Congratulations

How to Connect VCR directly to the TV without problemd


The VCR is today old technology that doesn't marry well with the latest tv sets and accessories. The best way is to connect via a scart lead.

There have been so few digital vcr's produced few households have them - most are analogue format and must either record from a set-top box, from some tv sets while watching the programme, from a dvd or dvr or anything with a scart socket...
Mostly the in-built uhf modulator is redundant and generally the machines are now only suitable for playback of previously recorded tapes, though I still find them useful for recording.

I have a maganovox combo system, converter box, older model zenithe tv and rf modular. How do I connect all this to record and look at vcr on combo? I need step by step of hooking up all cords and plugs....


You dont need the rf modulator. Use a female to male rf, antenna cord and plug from the RF out on the back of your combo to the TV. Now you need to tune your TV on analogue mode until you find the dvd/vcr picture. Have the combo on when you're doing this.

How to connect HDMI set top box to analogue VCR and then to Digital tv to record


Most set top boxes with HDMI also have a yellow video out and white audio out for connection to a VCR or DVD recorder. Connect these two RCA cables to the VCR's yellow and white INPUTS for recording. Set the VCR to LINE input. For VCR playback, connect yellow video and white audio OUTS from VCR to your TV's yellow and white INPUTS. Select this input on the TV set.

Have had digital installed and cannot get tv to work through digital. Any advice?


Hello
Thei Orion model Tv is not equipped with a digital tuner inside. There is only an analogue tuner fitted and only analogue channels can be received by this set. To get digital channels, you have to buy one settop box, which can convert digital signals to analogue signals. In short, a Digital to Analogue Converter should be bought, if you want to get digital channels. OK.

Now that we are on digital will the SD-37VB dvd vcr recorder work or do I have to alter a setting to make this happen


If the unit has a built in analogue tuner, the unit itself will still operate as normal, but without the built in analogue channels - to record a TV show, you would need to connect an external set top box to it (SD or HD - or both).

In other words, apart from a separate set top box, if required, there should be no need to change any of the unit's settings if it works as is. I do not believe this model has a built-in digital (DVB) tuner.

Do I need to throw out my GoVideo because it is not digital. Comcast recently went all digital and I cannot get any response on my VCR. Channel 3's view stays consistance from the TV Channel and doesn't...


Not if the unit itself still works; that is, it still plays videotapes and DVDs (with picture and sound).

Check your TV, you may have the wrong input selected for your unit (and/or other connected devices), or the TV is on the wrong channel; hence why you can't see anything from the VCR.

As for the ComCast box, give them a call and ask about it - quote the box number, and ask if it is digital or analogue - if it is the latter, they should replace the box free of charge as part of your cable subscription.

You do not need a new combo unit, unless you want one later which has a digital tuner. All it means is that you have no analogue TV channels in your combo unit.

Search ResultsI have a Panasonic DVD REcorder Model No. DMR-ES30V itwill not find any channels


Assuming the antenna is connected, and you still receive analogue broadcasts in your area, this machine should 'find' channels fine. Because this combo does not feature a DVB supported SD digital tuner (unlike the DMR-EZ series which does), it is possible that the analogue tuner (or its associated circuit) is faulty (the best way to determine whether your combo has a problem or if you have no analogue channels in it is to check your TV - if that still has analogue channels, and those are OK, then it is the combo's tuner which is the problem).

The problem with this circuit is the abundance of surface-mounted components on the copper side of the board as well as standard ones on the other side (particularly in the power supply as well as the tuner). When these tiny parts fail, it is almost impossible to replace these individually, as they are glued and soldered to the tracks; manufacturers nowadays lean toward complete board/chassis/module replacement rather than indivdidual parts. It is also time-consuming for a workshop to trace the sources of the fault within these components; so the labour cost increases accordingly, and the parts are not cheap, hence the board replacement scenario.

My guess is one or more surface-mount ICs and/or surface-mount transistors to the IF/RF tuning module has developed an internal short which will mean a workshop repair.

This may not be economical for a DVD/VCR combo with no digital tuner as the unit is over 5 years old.

Here's what I recommend: with the advent of digital broadcasts, the cheaper option is to buy a digital set-top box (SD or HD or both if you can get it - any brand with standard AV/RCA sockets) - connect the outputs of the box to the inputs of the combo (assuming there is no macrovision by the channels from the STB allowing some taping/recording occasionally), select the input 'function' on the DMR-ES30V ('INPUT SELECT' is not a channel and does not use the tuner; it uses a separate control circuit as part of the video IF stage), and this should be OK. You can try this, and avoid the workshop completely this time.

It's messy, but a lot cheaper and simpler, since your DVD and VCR part appear to be OK. You should not need to replace the combo at this stage. Analogue broadcasts are gradually being phased out. I hope this helps a tiny bit.

Try video input using a dvd - if you are using a digital cable box (or satellite) use the a/v outputs (yel red wht wires)to hook to video in of TV. If you are using standard cable hook the cable through a vcr if available and hook the a/v of the vcr to video in of the tv.
Otherwise is tv(to be used) on Ch3?
The TV tuner may be defective.
