Question about Magnavox ZV457MG9 Player
I suspect you've used the audio out sockets on the back of the player that are exclusively for the DVD player. I've ringed these in red in the diagram below. For audio from both DVD and VCR, you need to use the audio out sockets for DVD/VCR which I've ringed in green. I suspect this is the cause of the problem, but if you are using two connections from the player to the TV (one for DVD and one for VCR), the VCR will be on a different input to the DVD.
Hope this helps. If this does not solve the problem or you need further assistance, please let me know the model number of your TV and how the DVD/VCR player is connected to the TV. If you don't know the model number of the TV this can be found on a label on the back of the TV. Please reply to me by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question.

You would need to connect 'AUDIO OUT' from this unit to your TV when using component video cable (red-blue-green) using DVD/VCR connection, then to your TV audio input and respective component video inputs. Otherwise, with standard video RCA cable (yellow-white-red), you would need to connect the VIDEO-L-R outputs of the unit (next to the antenna IN and RF out sockets) to the respective AV inputs of your TV (assuming the VCR does not use component video plus audio out).
Below is a link to observe a free colourful quick guide on the connection of your unit to your TV set; this may be a bit clearer than the instruction manual.
NOTE: this is a quick guide only, not the owner's manual - but it might assist you as it shows clear diagrams of the connection via component video/audio and standard video/audio outputs. (it is for this model only)
I am not totally sure if this will help, but it's worth a try.
