Most DVD recorders have a "Scart" input. I assume your VHS has one also. conect a scart lead form the VHS to "Input" scart on DVD recorder. Select the "scource" of viewing on the DVD to "Scart", press record on the DVD and "Play" on the VHS and away you go. You should be able to view whats happening on your T.V. when you select the scart that the DVD is connected to on it.

Green tint on TV screen when playing DVD's or Videos 2nd problem and can't record anything


1: Hi i would recommend trying the recorder on a different tv to check if the problem continues. If the green tint is gone then its the tvs inputs. If it is still green then its the player or the cord. Try a different cord if the green tint is still there then the player has a problem.

2: Now for the VHS to DVD. There are general a lock out encoded on the VHS if it is a store bought movie. This is to protect the content on the VHS from piracy and that would case the DVD to be blank. The VHS to DVD are made for converting your home videos like family vacations and stuff you record your self and not for commercial movies like the ones you bye at the store. If you want to convert old VHS movies to DVD you would have to get another VHS player and another device in between the VHS player and the VHS to DVD recorder.

CAN I RECORD FROM A VHS ONTO A CD OR DVD WITH MY STEREO?


In short, NO. Stereos are for playing not recording.

If your stereo has a DVD recorder and a video/audio input then you should be able to use it. I dont know of many stand alone "stereos" that do this. In general, stereos only deal with audio, but newer stereos and receivers can handle video as well, but usually are just PLAYERS not RECORDERS.

If not, then you will need to connect your VHS to a stand alone DVD recorder. You could also connect your VHS to a computer with the proper adapters (USB, firewire, etc) and software, and then record the VHS video to the computer. Afterwards you can then make a CD or DVD of the video.

A stand alone DVD recorder is much easier.

I have a pioneer recorder and i'm trying to turn vhs to dvd... it shows that it's burning and even looks like it on the dvd itself but it won't play anything. do i have it set up right?


You likely won't be able to simply plug the VCR into the DVD recorder and record the tape onto the DVD.DVD recorders require a digital input which was never put onto a VCR due to technology changes and availability when VCR's were made.You absolutely need some kind of software program to send it to your computer,then to a disc.The key is digital input.It simply isn't in a VCR.You cannot even record TV on a DVD recorder unless you have a cable box input or a DVD recorder with a digital tuner to change channels and record from.Unless it is something like home video,you are better off starting all over.If it is something like home video which you want to convert,there may be some certain companies which do it for $ obviously,but I haven't checked for any myself personally so I am not sure about that option.But I have found software at retail stores for perhaps up to $50 which will do that. Good luck,Greg

Is third time a charm. Again several years ago I


Here is the owner's manual for your DVD machine. This is a VHS recorder but not a DVD recorder. To record VHS tapes to DVDs, you will need a DVD recorder.
You will plug the yellow video out connector on the VHS to the yellow 'Video in' connector on the DVD Recorder. Do the same for the red and white audio connections, out on the VHS, IN on the DVD Recorder. Connect your TV to the DVD recorder so you can see the picture you are recording.

How do i hook up dvd recorder/vcr to my tv?


Hello.

If its a combined dvd/vcr unit you should be able to record on the dvd input from the vcr with a 3 split cord connected as described below..

VCR -
---------
Video output - yellow.
Audio output - left and right - red & white.

=========================================

DVD
--------
Video input - yellow.
Audio input - left and right - red & white.

=========================================
Or you might have to use a standared RF cable from the
antenna out on the video to the antenna in on the DVD.

=========================================

Additional information....
---------------------------------

Just as you can't copy commercially made video tapes to another VCR due to Macrovision anti-copy encoding, the same applies to making copies to DVD. DVD recorders cannot bypass the anti-copy signal on commercial VHS tapes or DVDs. If a DVD recorder detects the anti-copy encoding on a commercial DVD it will not start the recording and display some sort of message either on screen or on its LED front panel display that it detects the anti-copy code or that it is detecting an unusable signal.
A DVD recorder can be used to copy any homemade videos, such as camcorder videos and videos made from TV shows, and can also copy Laserdiscs, and other non-copyprotected video material. Also, remember that a DVD recorder also has a built-tuner for recording TV programming directly. The tuner can be programmed to record a series of programs on different days and times, much like a VCR. However, if you are recording a non-copy protected DVD to a DVD recorder you can record any of the video content, provided you click on the menu and start the video segments running and you have enough time space on the disc. DVD recorders function like VCRs in that they can record incoming video signals -- however, they do not automatically copy all the contents of the DVD - for instance, you cannot copy the interactive menu functions of a non-copy protected commercial DVD. A DVD recorder creates its own menu functions, it will not duplicate the function menu from a another DVD.

Hope this will help you.

Not unless the DVD machine is a DVD Player/recorder. However if you have a PC you can record the Video to the PC and then take the video convert it to mpeg2 or mpeg4 and transfer these to the DVD recorder on your PC as a movie. Most DVD recorders come with software that lets you do this.
Thank you,

Waiting for input signal


It's a protected video. The VRD-MC5 will not burn a VHS or input that has been protected.
