    I do have a New Sony TV and don't know if Composite or Component, I'm hooked into the component with my three colored cable and don't know how to get into the user menu, can't find the two composite or component to change over. I'm not a very good 79 yr old tech. New system to me.

Sounds as if you hooked up your player wrong. If you are using a composite hook up. You should have a yellow, red and white cable. Make sure it gets hooked into the same on the TV. If it is a component connection, then RED, Green and Blue. It sounds like you have your Yellow composite going through your Green component. If by chance your TV is a new Sony, then you might have to go into the user menu and turn component off and composite on.

    All I can say is take your blue cable. Hook it in your blue hole on both TV and player. Same with Red and green. If you still can't get it figured out, I am sure someone you know can help you out. Sorry if I can't be of anymore help.

    With your remote press your Home button
    With arrow keys, scroll down to Set up and press button in the middle of arrows
    With arrow keys, scroll down to where it says video 1 composite/component and press button in middle of arrows
    With arrow keys press up or down until you highlight which hook up you are using. Red green and blue would be component. Yellow White and red would be composite and then press button in middle of arrows.
    Press return or exit on remote and you will exit menu

Most Combo Recorders (VHS and DVD) will prevent you from
recording a Copyrighted VHS tape program onto DVD.
Try recording a TV program onto your VHS tape, then
transfer it to your DVD and see if your new DVD recording
will work or not.

you have to send the video and audio from the tv set to the inputs on the VCR recorder (it should be labeled "IN" there will be one yellow, one white (or black) and one red connector. without these cables hooked up, your recorder has nothing to record from.

Hooking up my DVD/VHS player to TV & Convertor box


I would just hook up the dvd/vhs player with the red,white,yellow rca cables that should of come with your unit and just go to the input on the tv to watch your dvd/vhs player. This will give you a better picture and sound while allowing you not to have to watch dvd/vhs on a channel which helps make the dvd/vhs player independent. Also if possible I would hook the converter box up with the red,white, yellow rca cables to the tv as well if your tv has more than one set of red,white,yellow plugs since it is a better connection that coax and you probably watch more tv than vhs/dvd anyway. So bottom line try to hook up both boxes red,white,yellow and watch each box on different inputs instead of like channel 3 or 4. Also to record of converter box you can run coax from converter box to dvd/vhs combo and make sure your dvd/vhs player is on tuner input or channel 3.
