As long as you get a picture to your TV the same way and your on all the correct inputs and outputs you shouldn't have a problem. If the problems persists I would contact the manufacturer.

Digital convertor


Do you mean the Samsung DVD-VR500E? The following steps should work for most DVD recorders. (In the US, you use the AV Input with an RCA composite cable or the RF input.)

If you get a digital-to-analog converter (set top box) and your current antenna provides the OTA signal at your location, then yes you will be able to record a digital program. Connect the set top box to AV1 or AV2 (the SCART inputs). Then use the Input Sel (under PR mode) to select the input. (Alternatively, connect an RF modulator to get the signal to the coax input from the STB to the recorder.) See page 75 of the manual for the DVD-500E for details on setting the input for recording: http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200410/20041023105238671_00500A-VR300E-XEU-E-B.pdf . Some DVD recorders only record on the TV (coax) input. In that case, you will need a set-top box with a RF out or an RF modulator but you can still record the digital program.

A dual tuner set top box will let you watch one program and record another if both the TV and the recorder are connected to the STB. If your TV has a digital tuner, you can split the incoming antenna signal to go to the set-top box and the TV. (Then you can also watch one program and record another.)

I prefer to use a switch instead of a splitter to reduce the signal loss. However, this forces me to record the program that I am currently watching. Since most of my recording is for time-shifting, this doesn't cause me a problem.

This site, http://www.ricability-digitaltv.org.uk/pages/products/stbs/stb_search_results.asp , has a list of reviews of set-top boxes for the UK. I know in the US, it is harder to find new converter boxes. However, they frequently show up in the used market as people replace their older TVs. This may apply in your region as well.

I hope this helps.

How to hookup and use


A DVD recorder can hook up to any TV that has at least a set of AV inputs (you will need an RF modulator if your TV does not have AV inputs).

Just hookup your cable or antenna feed to the ant/cable input of the DVD recorder and loop it out to the RF input on the TV.

I'm trying to hookup my Toshiba DR430KU to an older tv that require an RF Modulator. I get a skewded sideways picture. Does This DVDR compatable with a RF Modulator?


Probably not. Better picture results are achieved with either S-Video, standard RCA AV cable (yellow-white-red), or YUV component cable (red-green-blue) (component output does not have audio - this requires extra cable to be connected). The video via either one of these 'AV' connections is stunning (based on a standard 16:9 LCD TV using a Panasonic DVD recorder).

RF tends to be lower quality - as opposed to AV/digital input. AV input/YUV component handles digital better. No one connects their DVD devices to their TV via RF (either directly to the antenna socket or with a modulator/attenuator) anyway. Because a VCR is mostly analogue, it will work fine with an RF connection, but DVD is digital, and so won't work as well, if at all.

RF also goes through the tuner in a TV, creating cross-interference, whereas AV is a direct input and is separate to the tuner.

I would say an RF modulator would not be designed to handle the output frequency that your DVD device generates. Throw the modulator out, or perhaps get another TV, or use RCA cables instead if the TV has AV inputs. Whichever is cheaper and easier, but don't use RF accessories except a standard antenna if/as required.

How to program vcr to record digital channels?


Any VCR select to input source from where recording.
So select appropiate Euroscart or other AV connection.
Digital channel will be your digital cable set top box or sat receiver, DVD player, whatever. Very unlikely you use a digital capable set topbox to output to your VCR or TV with old fashioned RF coax cable where you have to tun in to cerain RF frequency under Channel 0 or so. So when in timer menu select that input source connection. Direct recording without timer select the source with remote. This solution applies to all brands

Connecting a VCR and DVD recorder to the TV


from what type of source are you doing this? if its CATV with NO BOX, i can help.
Here is a rough sketch:
use COAXIAL cable from splitter to VCR and TV and to the RF Modulator (get one at radio shack) from the RF Mod, to DVD, use RCA cables. Run RCA Cable from output DVD to Input on the TV. Run RCA cables from your VCR output to another TV Input

VCR WON'T RECORD


you may have the outputs hooked up correctly however you may need to set the inputs to the selected type of cable you are using. S video 1 cable or video input witch is an rca adapter yellow in color. you will find these setting in the "setup section" on the remote set up button will get you there and then input or source.

Can't record from tv or disc,


shouldn't need one, If you can't get the tuner source of your ilo to record, try using A/V cables (output) from tv to (Inputs) on ilo. set tv on channel you want to watch and it should come through to the ilo (selecting the correct source input of course) If your tv is really old and doesn't have A/V then you will need RF Modulator. This way of hooking tv up will also work with recording DIGITAL signal from a Digital converter box type tuner (the tuner in Ilo soon to be no longer operatable).

Set up problems


is this a dvd/vcr recorder combo? or is it just a dvd player? if it is only a dvd player, there wouldn't be a rf input. you won't be able to record or burn recordings.just hook up the audio/video cables to your tv to watch dvd's. if it is a recorder combo without a rf input or output, you may need a rf modulater they sell at radio shack for about $25.
good luck.

Magnavox MWR10D6 can't record from camcorder wrong channel


OK...try this...plug your RCA cables from your camcorder into the RCA input jacks on the back of the recorder. If you have a VCR, it can be plugged into the coax input on the back of the recorder. Use the coax output and plug it into a RF modulator (about $20 at Wal Mart). Plug the RCA output cables from the recorder into the RF modulator as well (Don't ask me why, but it seems to work on mine). Connect a coax cable from the RF modulator to the TV. Make sure the TV and Recorder are both on the right channel. The RF modulator will have a channel switch to use channel 3 or 4 on the TV. Make sure the recorder is set to E1 (Rear). You can check this with the channel +/- buttons on the bottom right of the remote. Good luck.
