How do I Record?

I know this is likely a simple answer but I don't have the manual anymore and am unsure of how to record. Even though I have my television on channel 4 which is the channel that normally works when I just play tapes, however, the TV now just says "muted" and is fuzzy. How to I set it so that I can record a show while I watch it? Thanks in advance for any help.

Well, seems like your vcr is attached to your tv by the antenna cable which you need to program to get it to record. but he is an easy way to record and you will get a perfect sound and picture. Well, you need an RCA cables. you either have rca cables or scart plug. either on will do the job. you need to take the audio and picture cable OUT source of your channels IN to the vcr. now, OUT of the vcr IN to your tv. on the vcr you should change the channel to either AV or LINE..then you will get sound and picture. let me know how it goes

Why does the channel up or down sometimes not work?

I can't figure out how to record message for answering machine


There should be a greeting or greet labeled button on the base.Hold it down and it will prompt you.If there isn't one,without turning on the phone hit the funtion button.There should be a directional button to cycle you through the options.It should be on the base though.We just got rid of our Uniden though because the batteries died and there are so many new ones that come out year to year,they don't even put out the battery anymore.It is less than 2 years old too.:( Good luck!

Hello I have a 9 channel multiplexer for my home security system, and Iam wondering if there is a way to replay my tapes through the multiplexer and view it full screen, even though it is taped on a split...


If you have the cameras being recorded by a vcr (tape) the answer is no. For you to have the ability to view full screen it must be recorded on a hard drive where all cameras can be recorded separately. This is not possible with a tape machine.

My VCR not recording after the switch to digital tv signal


The answer to this question can get a little complicated. Lets tackle it in two parts. First the last part; the part about picking up channels as decimals. With analog TV transmission, it took the full television broadcast channel to transmit one standard definition TV program. The newer digital transmission system uses some advanced video compression and audio compression technology to reduce the data needed to transmit the pictures and sound which allows the same bandwidth to deliver either High Definition Television programming or MULTIPLE channels of Standard Definition programs. So in your example above, you use to watch one channel of programming on TV channel 4, but now the TV station can broadcast multiple channels of programming on channel 4, sot they delineate the programs with a decimal point. So 4.1 it the first program on TV channel 4, 4.2 it the second program on TV channel 4..... Well, I hope you get the idea.

Now for the hard part of your question. I believe that before the transition, even with your new digital TV, you were still enjoying the analog broadcasts from your stations. Your VCR picked them up and recorded them and your digital TV could tune them in and you watched as you had always done in the past. After the transition you noticed that your VCR could not record anymore and your digital TV had discovered the digital channels that replace the analog channels. To remedy this situation, your VCR will need the aid of a DTV converter box to tune channels, and you may have to reconfigure the way your TV and VCR are connected. The best resource that I can give your for the reconnecting is the website http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/consumerfacts/converterbox_vcr.html.

Recorded programs in english come out in Spanish


Make sure your TV hasn't been set for SAP (you'll find it in the audio settings menu). Second audio programming is often used to carry alternate languages, and if it's turned on you won't know it until you watch a program where it's being used. There may be a single button labeled SAP on the remote. If so, it's easy to change the TV setting without realizing it.

From the manual:

2 x 184 pin DDR DIMM Sockets support up to maximum 2 GB unbuffered PC 2700/2100/1600 non-ECC DDR SDRAM memory.

So, to answer your question, for your particular motherboard, no. However, to dispute the other poster, Dual channel is better than regular DDR. It's just your motherboard does not support it.

Channel setup for VCR recording


WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO INTO SETUP AND DO A 'CHANNEL SET' EITHER AUTOMATIC (WHICH DID NOT WORK ON MINE) OR MANUAL AND ENTER EACH AND EVERY CHANNEL YOU WANT TO RECORD. THIS IS TIME CONSUMING BUT THAT IS THE ONLY WAY IT WILL WORK - IF YOURS WORKS WITH 'AUTOMATIC' YOU GOT IT MADE
