Your best bet for this problem is to rearrange the way you have your direct tv and dvd hooked up to your television. a lot of the time you can plug the dvd player into the input/antenna in jack on the back of the receiver. that way you can watch all the channels you want AND be able to watch dvds without having to unplug and replug stuff in. more than likely you'll have to push an input or tv/vcr button in order to switch between watching direct tv and dvds, but it's a lot simpler than switching chords around.

Magnavox MDR533HF7 timer programmer records wrong channel sometimes


You have to record some channels manually and you can not use the timer. Since TV went digital the channels are not really on the channel that you see. Where I live channel 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, and so on are really on channel 35 and 45. This tuner has a hard time with these channels because they are not on the station that you see and it does not look like this will be fixed.

Recordering with directv


You can record either the channel 3 or channel 4 output channel from the DirecTV box or connect the analog audio and video outputs to the recorder's inputs and use the In1 or In2 inputs.

Have magnavox dvd recorder record direcTV DVR programs w/ hdtv


I am unfamiliar with this unit.
If you have scart connecters on both, connect av2 on the tv to av in on the recorder. set the recorder to record from av source.
You should now record a program, I think the static is the fact that composite is out from the dvd only, not an input, and in on the tv, not an output.

My VCR/DVD Recorder won't record a program that I like.


I don't have a solution unfortunately, but I also have this problem. I cannot, no matter what the manual says (which it doesn't) figure out how to select which channel I want to have recorded to dvd-r.

Someone? Anyone? Help us??

Tuner free


Magnavox (philips) is one of the cheapiest dvd/vcr combos that offer excellent quality on the market. If you have a cable box or Directv box, simply use the audio/video connections on the back and connect them in the combo, then you can record from the television programs whenever you want.

Channel selection


L1 and L2 are just line inputs. This unit does not have a tuner so there are no channels to select.
It requires you to be connected to a TV broadcast via a cable or satellite tuner box... and then would only record what ever channel you were viewing. The DVD is a player only.
It sounds like you should have purchased a DVD Recorder or a DVD/VCR Recorder. The players normally do not have a tuner. A Recorder should have an built-in digital tuner. Some also have the old NTSC tuner and may also have a QAM tuner.

Well I don't have that problem anymore since I unplugged the thing for about a minute. It's working fine now.
