I have purchased a DVD-VCR combo similar to others we own, and on our newer televisions, we are able to click the TV over to Game in order to view the player. The LXI series is older and we do not have a remote for it. I cannot figure out how to make this work. It has the hookups in the back for the yellow, white and red cords. I thought it would work! Help!! Thanks!

It will depend on if the Toshiba has an HDMI socket. If it has then the Sony TV will almost certanily have one. Then all you need do is get a HDMI lead and connect the two. The only other way would be via a SCART lead. If the TV has only one SCART and it's being used you can get a SCART Switching Box from places such as Amazon, where you will also get the other cables.
Possibly. Try remotes.com and enter the model number of the unit (do not include the brand name). Otherwise, you may be able to find a universal remote that will work. Make sure that the remote is newer than the DVD/VCR unit by at least 6 months. (There is a delay between the release of a device and the codes for it getting to the people who build and program various universal remotes.)
Hard to believe you do not have any "F" connectors on the VCR/DVD. What brand is this? You should have inputs and outputs for separate composite and audio. Using phono cords with male ends you should be able to go to and from your television for recording and watching. It will mean alot of changing to go from one mode to the other but should be doable provided your tv has composite in/out. Your owners manual should show a diagram to hook the unit up this way. If you get stuck email me and I'll try to walk you through it. Give me as much info as you can on inputs and outputs. Let me know.
Simple matter. The Yellow cable will connect from Video Out of VCR to VIDEO IN of TV. Red cable will connect from AUDIO OUR (R) of VCR to AUDIO IN (R) of TV and AUDIO OUT (L) of VCR will connect to AUDIO IN (L) of TV.
Play VCR or DVD and select AV1 or AV2 of TV using TV remote control.This button may also be labelled as TV/VIDEO on your TV's Remote Control
You must have a converter box for the tv and for the vcr. Set the vcr to receive chanel 3 and set the converter box to the digital chanel you want to record. Put a splitter on the antenae out and route one to the tv converter box and one to the vcr converter box. GOOD TO GO.
Hi dennis176, Unfortunately, I am not aware of this kind of setup.This kind of solution would not be very efficient.For this to work there would need to be an insert to the VCR (similar to that which is used in a cassette player to convert CD audio) attached to a DVD player.Because you would require a device to play the DVD and send the video/audio to the insert (if it existed) it would actually be more efficient to simply connect the DVD player to the television. The reason inserts exist for cassette players is primarily that it prevents replacement of an entire car stereo system.This is not the case with a VCR.You may consider purchasing a DVD/VCR combo if you wish to maintain the ability to play VHS tapes.If you own a TV/VCR combo, your least expensive option would likely be to purchase a separate DVD player. Thank you, Jason, Go Ahead.Use Us.
Based on your post/description:
1. the TV is stuck to A/V;
2. you have two video sources - VHS & DVD (assuming both are external and both have A/V outputs with the VCR also with inputs);
3. you want to use either VHS & DVD, one at a time.
You can do it the old fashion way, remove yellow, red, white RCA connectors from DVD and plug them at the outputs of the VHS when you want to use the VCR; or
Connect the A/V outputs of the DVD to the inputs of the VCR, connect the outputs of the VCR to the A/V inputs of the LXI TV.
Hopes this give you an idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
