You did not mention the brand and model of the TV so it is unlikely we can answer your question.

If the TV is equipped with outputs for audio and video or a composite output, this should be difficult.
Many sets of all kinds involved with A/V use a fairly standard set of color coded in/outputs to simplify interconnecting them.

    We'll try again; I downloaded what was called a 'manual' - it isn't. More of a sales brochure (= useless)



    Please give me the following info:



    - Are you in North America?

    - Your signal source: Satellite? Antenna? Cable?

    - Which input are you using on the Sony TV? Is it plugged into a mating connector or is it screwed on?

    - Is there a threaded connector on the back of the Phillips?

    - If not, please describe what is available there and, if present, include the markings that belong to each connector.



    Although less desirable than some connections, if you can attach the receiver (output) to the VCR input (this would be the screw type connector on each), then, the same type from the VCR to the TV, you would have to set the TV's input channel to 3 or 4 (could be either) to view what is coming from the VCR and the VCR's tuner (selected for source) would then have access to the output of the receiver which would allow you to record what you are currently viewing.

Lost manual. Cannot get HR A591U JVC VCR program to record a future cable tv program. Seems I have tried everything but it does not record as I set up. It will record an existing show by pressing...


Timer Recording JVC VCR HR A591U
Timer recording can be programmed on-screen with
the remote control. The built-in timer allows automatic
unattended recording of up to 8 programs within 1
month.

EXAMPLE: Program a timer recording for the 26th day,
channel 125 (CATV), 11:00 - 11:30 PM on timer program
number 1 (Tape speed: EP).

When a TV is connected with an audio/video cable, turn the
TV and this VCR on and select the video input mode on the
TV.


• After timer recording is completed, the VCR turns off
automatically.
• You can program the timer recording while a regular
recording is in progress; the menu screens will not be
recorded.
• The timer recording will start at 20 seconds before the time
you predetermined.

Press MENU on the Remote.
Check the “TIMER REC SET”
option is selected, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select one of
the program lines, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select the
date, then press ENTER.

Set the start time, end time,
channel and tape speed as in
step 3.
NOTE: To record from external
source, press SET –/+
and set the channel to
"L". "L" will appear next
to CH 125 (or 69).

To enter other programs,
repeat step 2 through 4. Or,
press MENU twice to return
to the normal screen.

Press TIMER on the Remote.
The power will go off, the
TIMER REC indicator ( ) will
light and the VCR stands by
for recording.

To cancel a program:

Press the SET –/+ to select the
“TIMER REC SET” option in the
MENU. Then press SET –/+ to
select the unnecessary program,
and press CANCEL to cancel the
program.

I MISPLACED MY USER MANUAL


You have to go the main menu and select record times, and day. Make sure you leave your tv set on, and on the channel that you wish to record the program on. You can set the start and stop times a few minutes before and after on the vcr, just to make sure you get the whole program. You can also set the vcr to record this program every day, any day of when ever you wish you can just manually hit "record on the vcr remote. Good luck, let me know how you make out! Thanks

It seems to me that you have only got one set of RCA Cablec between the TV and VCR ( from VCR Video out to TV Video In), as such the VCR only works in playback mode, you need a second set of RCA cables (from TV Video Out to VCR Video In) then select the appropriate input (Video) for the VCR. make sure to follow the colour coding on the RCA plug / socket arrangement

Quazar Model VHQ520/VHQ540 cannot record after inst Digital Conv


You need to set the vcr to channel 3 or 4 (whatever channel the digital converter box is set to broadcast on) to record a program. The digital converter box has to be set to the channel you want to record the show from.

Cannot record VCR thru Cable Box


make sure that the cable runs first through the cable box then through the VCR then to the TV.

if you know how to set timers on your cable box (if you have that option), set those in addition to your VCR timer. If you don't have that feature or are not sure, you will, unfortunately, have to keep the cable box on a certain channel before you record.

hope this helps!!

Panasonic NV SJ205 changing RF settings


Hi,
Your VCR has input to record video-audio signal. Here is 2 options to record program in vcr.
1= You need to hook up video-audio cable at Monitor Out in TV and video-audio in at VCR. select Line-1 or Line-2 (where you hook up cable) in vcr and insert cassette with Record Tab intact, VCR is ready to record TV program. select desired channel on tv and hit record button of vcr, recording will start.
2= Plug RF antenna / cable wire in RF In of vcr and tune desired channel in vcr (get help of vcr's user manual for that) and push record button to start record directly in vcr.
Have further query, let me know please.
bye.

I cannot get program recording with timer set.


Problem seems to be related to the "write protect" tab on the tape not being sensed. Is the tab removed? That would explain things there...accordianman
