Hi-I used to be a DirecTV installer. Depending on the type of reciever you have, there are yellow/red/white or red/green/blue outputs on the back. You will need to run the dvd/vcr through these and then change the tv to video 1/ video2, or AVI, CV1, CV2, Front (or whatever acronymn your tv has) when you want to switch between the componet and the reciever.... you should only need to change the tv channel to be able to use the dvd player. I've found that vcr's usually need to be on channel 3 and if DirecTV is using ch 3, you may have to slide the button on the back of the reciever to ch 4 instead.

Do they make a DVD/VHS Combo with a built in decoder that will connect to my Analog TV using only a coaxil cable?


99.99% of the combo units that have a tuner inside have been phased out.
You do need an external tuner to get cable through to the combo unit. The only combo units that I have seen that has a tuner in it already and hooks up to the coax is one that is a vhs/dvd RECORDER and not just a vhs/dvd PLAYER. You pay extra for the built in tuner and also for the dvd recording features.

My VCR plays cassets perfectly, but recently I am facing recording problem. I am unable to record, I am seeing recording caption on my screen. But it is not recording.


Well I think that the the machines mechanical piece that allows you to record is broken then and needs to be fixed so we perfer DVD players and dvd disc;s instead they are better at recording and have less problems too.

Tv/digital converter box & vcr-dvd hook-up


I have a vhs and dvd player all in one
I have a converter box hooked up to my tv and vcr , dvd player combined
I can play my movies on the tv. ok.
you have to have your tv and vcr set on channel 3. if that is what your main tv is set up with. Or 4 if you have your tv set up with that.
Mine plays ok. My settings are for channel 3
My suggestion would be to check your hook ups. maybe they are not hooked up correctly
I had to go to www.google.com and did searches to help with hook up.
I can also record station I am watching with vcr on vsh tapes. I do not have a dvd recorder.
I found out that you have to have 2 converter boxes hooked to one tv., in order to record on on station while watching another. I have not tried that, as I don't have 2 converter boxes for one tv. I found that by doing google search also. Good Luck

Getting a dvd player to record vhs to dvd


The RF converter takes the Red/White/Yellow as INPUTS and converts them to either channel 3 or 4. You need to go the other way. You need a tuner or another VCR to convert from RF (channel 3 or 4) to a standard AV signal (Red/White/Yel).

NTSC to PAL


You have to buy first a VHS player that can play NTSC, might not be available locally in Ireland so you have to probably buy online (US). The DVD recorder is fairly comnon nowadays and all of them are capable of recording and playing NTSC and PAL. You can then connect the AV out of VHS player to the AV In of the recorder. Or you can use a VHS-DVD combi. You can google in UK, here is an example: Toshiba RD-XV45, according to the specs, it can play NTSC on the VHS and you can record to DVD on any format that yoou want You can go to this link to view other product: http://audiovisual.kelkoo.co.uk/b/a/sbs/100304323/16875665.html My father died of cancer 6 years ago and I am also transferring the Hi-8 videos to digital format using PC.
