Tuning VCR into Tv

I don't know how to tune VCR into TV so I can tape programes when I'm out
Can you help please (Sorry, website kept rejecting my question saying "Please enter a valid product". They don't want to accept my Samsung TV or Philips VCR.)

Similar problem. Trying to tune VCR to
new LCD TV and getting nowhere. I know it's do-able as millions have
succeeded. My LCD is SAMSUNG
LA19R71B and my VCR is Philips
VR499/75. I have the manuals for both
but tricky to understand.
I suspect I may
have got off on the wrong foot when I
connected the cables. Here is what I did:
I plugged the antenna into the VCR. Then connected the VCR to the LCD with
the short RF coaxial cable. Then plugged
in the AC power leads for both
and switched on. These were the
instructions in the Philips manual,
but they were for connecting VCR to old
-style TV. (Don't know if this is how it
should be done for modern LCD TVs). I next went to the Source List on LCD to make a selection but it only showed TV and no other options.
I'm not blond but sure feel it right now.
Would love to get this tuning thing
achieved. Hope you can help.

Set the LCD to TV source and tune the LCD TV channel to 3 or 4.

For best viewing experience, you should connect the LCD TV to the VCR using component / SVideo or RCA cables instead of RF coxial to avoid signal loss. Your VCR manual should indicate these types of connections.

VCR Recording OK but cant see tape content


VCR may not be tuned to the right channel. If you are using your VCR for the tuner then your tv is set to channel 3. Check your cabling again as well. From the wall to the VCR. From the VCR to the TV. You also need to make sure that you programmed the VCR for all of the channels. Just like you would for a TV.

I need help programming vcr to tape show


Since the V9800 has no built-in tuner, your TV set must be set to the channel your show to be taped is on. There is no way to tune it to any particular channel. Now, isn't that convenient?

No signal


Try video input using a dvd - if you are using a digital cable box (or satellite) use the a/v outputs (yel red wht wires)to hook to video in of TV. If you are using standard cable hook the cable through a vcr if available and hook the a/v of the vcr to video in of the tv.
Otherwise is tv(to be used) on Ch3?
The TV tuner may be defective.

HELP ME TUNE CABLE THRU VCR TO TV...PLEASE


If you can get a picture on your TV when you watch a video tape you are half way there. On the back of the VCR there are two coax connections, you may need a flashlight but one will be labeled IN and the other OUT. The one that is labeled Out will be connected to the TV. The other one (IN) is where the Cable from the wall connects into. After you have the connections made turn your TV to either Channel 3 or 4. You will now use your VCR remote to change channels.

These are the basic instructions without knowing what model VCR you have. If the TV will not stay on channel 3 or 4 then you will either need to get it repaired or get a new TV.

How to connect a vcr for recording programs


1 - To start with..
Plug aerial lead into the "RF input" on rear of vcr
--> now you can tape programs (providing vc is "tuned" correctly)

2 - Plug a lead from "RF output" into tv's "RF input"
--> now you can watch programs on tv _independently_ of vcr (ie can be watching 1 program & taping a separate one on vcr)

3 - Plug red/white/yellow cable from vcr's "VIDEO/AUDIO output" into tv's "VIDEO/AUDIO input"
--> now you can
1) play a tape in vcr, & watch it on tv
& 2) change what watching on tv via vcr's remote


* Note: This is for analogue terrestial television (aerial on roof), not digital/satellite tv, connecting to stereo, etc, etc (the "more involved " setups)

LG VCR GC480W can't tune in to tv


Any vcr I know of usually is tuned through channels 3 or 4 unless they are hooked up directly by RCA patchcord. 3 pronged- 2 audio and 1 video. With the patchcord you'll be tuning through an auxilary input in the tv.

Sharp VCR hooked up to cable tv, i/p to vcr then out to tv.


I believe that I have the solution to that problem... When you are hooked up to cable or dish and use a VCR, you MUST have the program you wish to tape playing on the Cable or dish program, therefore the VCR needs to be tuned to channel 3 or 4 {whichever is the unused channel in your area) I believe that all you have to do is make sure that the TV is tuned to the channel you wish to tape and program the VCR to Channel 3 (at my area) or channel 4.

I hope this works for you. I have VCRs hooked up to all my sets and this is how mine work.

Problems tuning TV and SLV-900


the video recorder has it's own tuner you do not actually record from the tv... think of the vcr as like a tv but without a screen... connect to your tv via a scart lead and while you are on the vcr's 'channel' (so you could see a tape playing on your tv) and access the menu on you vcr (not the tv's menu) choos auto tune if the vcr supports it or manual tune if it has no auto tune and tune in the required channels on your vcr... it is simply then a matter of selecting on your vcr which channel you wish to record

Akai VSG285 video - I can't tune any TV stations thru to the VCR?


This sounds like a hookup or programming problem.

The typical hookup is cable/satellite box output to VCR antenna/RF input, then VCR antenna/RF output to television input. Since you are able to watch pre-recorded tapes, the latter is already correct. There are other ways to connect, using the audio/video outputs of VCR to audio/video inputs of the TV. Older or low end TV sets may not have these connections.

If by chance you are using an outdoor antenna (not cable or satellite) then the antenna connects to VCR antenna/RF input and VCR output as above. You will also need to program the VCR into the stations- most late VCRs will scan for active channels, and program themselves to those channels.

I'm not sure of the capabilities of newer cable & sat boxes, but generally, you had to tune that box to the channel you wanted to record. The VCR is set to channel 3 or 4 depending on the output of the cable box.

Lastly, most VCRs of the last 10+ years require the remote to setup advanced functions, such as timed record, date & channel setup functions. The buttons on the VCR itself only do very basic functions, Stop/Play/Rewind/F-forward/Eject etc.

If you don't have the orig. remote, some universal remotes may be able to do advanced programming functions.

Vcr won't record tv


You have to plug the antenna to the VCR, in the "Antenna IN" plug, from there it goes to the "TV OUT".

You use the VCR to tune the TV and choose record according to your VCR model.
Hope That Helps!
