I have a hdtv with digital channels. I also have a vcr that can record shows. The thing is i have everything set up correctly. How do i record the shows on tv to my vcr?


A VCR will not record HDTV signals. You can only record normal digital signals. If you wish to record HDTV channels you should look at Blue Ray Recorders.

I have a Panasonic PV-V4525S VCR and I'm trying to program it to work with the Comcast cable. Right now it will only record the same channel that the TV is on and I have to tell the VCR to record channel...


If your using digital cable it will only record channel 3 or 4 depending on what your cable box is set to...In order for it to record different channels it needs a cable source plugged directly into it. You will only be able to record standard cable channels 1-125. If it's digital cable forget about... you can only record it with channel 3/4 a solution to this would be using a 2nd digital box.. "auto-programming" may be limited even with a 2nd cable box. If your only using standard cable 1-125... you can use the TV/VCR button it will switch between the tuner of the TV & VCR allowing you to record while you watch a different show... keep in mind this won't work for digital channels which if I'm not mistaken comcast has already converted all channels to digital even basic.

do you have a cable box connected. If you do you have to tell the vcr to record on channel 3 or 4 (whichever you have the tv tune to regularly) then put the cable box on the channel you want to record the show on

Can;t record on VCR since Comcast went Digital


I have Dish Network and a DVR and I do not know what I would do without it. I can record 2 shows at once and watch to 2 recorded programs while recording two shows. But getting to your problem... It sounds like the vcr cannot process the digital signal. You could try hooking up the vcr to the rca inputs from the cable box but you will only be able to record whatever channel the cable box is on. Any way you hook them up the programming of the vcr to change channels at different times for different programs probably won't work now. It sounds like Direct TV with two DVRs will solve your recording needs.

Loss of VCR Channels due to Digital Switchover


Comcast is full of it.

If you have a cable box, plug the box directly into the cable feed, then place the VCR inline between the cable and the TV. Leave the VCR on Channel 3 or 4 and use the box to select the channel. You could also use the video and audio out lines from the box and run them to the VCR.

Taping to vhs from digital cable


You do not need to leave the TV on. To get the clearest picture you should connect the AV cables (yellow, white, red) from the cable box to the VCR, and from the VCR to the TV. There should be a setting on both the TV and the VCR to set the input to VIDEO so you don't have to use channel 3. You can shut the TV off while recording if you want. Also be careful because if you use the channel guide or info button while recording, it will show up on the tape.

Recording Sony Handycam video footage to video


You have to tell the vcr which input to record on. Instead of a channel try "Line 1" or "input 1" or "Video 1". you can get there by going to channel 01 and pressing channel down a few times. match whats written above the input jacks with what's on the screen.

Recording


You should set the VCR to the channel which you want to record. It doesn't matter what channel the TV is on. In your case, just turn off the TV.

I making assumptions about your setup. If you can turn on your VCR and TV and watch the channel that you will be recording, then just turn your TV off, and you should be good.

Only caveat, some VCRs must be turned off while waiting for the recording timer to activate (presumably, so as not to interfere with someone actively watching a program).

RCA VR355 recording problem


Are you sure the reciever is coming through the vcr.? are you hooking it up through a/v on vcr?
if so hook from a/v out from directv to a/v in
jacks on back of vcr. and turn vcr on a/v channel
to record it. you will see the picture as you record it. if the vcr isn't on a/v channel it won't record it
If you use ch 4 or 3 to record it you
hook up directv to cable in on vcr and you
have to turn vcr on that channel and see it coming
through it you have to push a button on satlette
remote to make it come on the vcr on the channel
or it will record snow. and you have to push
another button on vcr remote if you haven't
already to get the vcr on ch 4 or 3 on your tv
or if u got it through a/v turn tv to a/v channnel.

just beacuse you see the picture coming through
your tv doesn't mean it going through your vcr
you could be just seeing it through the tv only.
you will see the vcrs graphics or vcr channel number on your
tv too along with the directv channel if it's hooked
up right. notice the vcr won't record it's own
graphics or channel number on the screen but it will record the directv's graphics. and it won't record the tv's own grapic channel number either.
to make sure it's right you will see 3 graphics on
your tv the own tv's channel number or a/v
the directvs and the vcr's channel number or a/v
on your tv if you see these you know it's hook up
right.
