These are generic code search instructions for Phillips/Magnavox Programing with Code Search
1. Manually turn on (TV,VCR,etc.) to be controlled. 2. Press and hold Code Search button until red indicator stays on. Release the Code Search button. 3. Press and release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks, then stays lit. 4. Press the Channel Up button repeatedly ( up to 300 times ) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press the Channel Down button to backtrack through the library until the device changes channel. Pressing Channel Up changes direction to forward again. Press and release the Mute button to install the code. If the device you are installing does not have a Channel Up button use Play(VCR only) or Power, on all other devices.
You’re dvd/vcr only has analogue tuner so the only way to record is by using the Phillips tv but as said tv will need to be switched on.you would need a sky or cable box or a free view box separate to the tv to record with tv off.the vcr will recieve only on the av channel av1 when connected to tv.a sky box or cable can be connected to av2 on sharp using a second scart lead and box
It seems you have already try everything We might suggest< I dont know if you have tried using the video and audio outputs in the dvd/vcr combi unit conecting them to the audio and video imputs of your tv and the selecting maybe one of the AUX channels to watch it,If you have a tuner problem in your tv this will be a way to bypass it and control the channels from you combi unit.We would like to know the outcome,please let us know.
