Question about Magnavox ZV427MG9 DVD Recorder VCR

1 Answer

Just purchased this Magnavox DVD/VCR combo (ZV427MG9 A), bought in USA. Plays okay (video and audio) with HDMI output but, plays only video (no audio) with either set of component audio output RCA jacks. Can find nothing in the manual that may address this issue or anything on the remote or in the menus that looks promising as a fix. BTW: the phone number Magnavox puts on their manual for support just gives the runaround and does not even identify as a Magnavox number (1 800 605-8610)

I hope you are connecting 5 RCA jacks when using the component video out. HDMI cable carries both audio and video over one single cable but the component video has 5 jacks, 3 for video ( Red/Blue/Green ) and 2 for audio ( Red/White ).

How do I connect the wireing


The VCR portion is connected to yhe TV via yellow-end cable(video) from "video out" to TVs "video in" and red and white-end cables(audio) from "audio out" to TVs "audio in". The DVD plays via HDMI cable from "HDMI out" to TVs HDMI in. S-video cable can be used if no HDMI terminal is available on TV. External tuner in (cable TV, Satellite) is connected to the video and audio in terminals or better yet if S-video out is available on the tuner box.

    I cannot record digital when I try to set up my Magnavox ZV457MG9 (DVD). The unit will only record in the external L1. I have a Comcast box.


    This is normal for the ZV457MG9 units. The Magnavox ZV457MG9 does not have an analog (NTSC) tuner; additionally there is no digital (ATSC or QAM) tuner either. It will only record on line in (L1) which is a composite input (limited to SD). The HDMI port on the recorder is an HDMI out to TV, not an input. The component video jacks are also only outputs.

    The manual for the Magnavox ZV457MG9/F7 is available here: http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/z/zv427mg9_f7/zv427mg9_f7_dfu_aen.pdf . The unit was manufactured for Magnavox by Funai; thus another link to the manual is http://www.funai-corp.com/6pdf/om/ZV427MG9.pdf .

    I wish that I had better news for you.

    (If your DVD/VCR recorder had a tuner, it would record off a coaxial (antenna) cable input. Many DVRs can record off the HD connection (HDMI or component); that may be a better option for replacing this Magnavox unit.)

    I have a Magnavox ZV427MG9 DVD Recorder VCR Combo. Do I need a separate tuner? If so what kind? Thanks


    Hello
    Ofcourse you need an external tuner to receive any RF signals. Your Magnavox is not equipped with internal tuner with it. OK.

    your model is "tuner free" that means it does not have the RF screw in connector. Buy one that has a tuner, preferably both ATSC(USA digital) and NTSC(USA analog)
