Can tune mitsubishi HS-651V video player/recorder to watch TV.
To whom it may concern, I have a mitsubishi HS-651V but have no manual. I have tried to source a manual online but been unsuccessful. I've had trouble tuning the video so I can watch TV (through the video). I can get the blue screen, can view videos, and DVDs (from external DVD player). Could anyone please tell me how do you tune it? It's driving me bonkers!

Hi Jaco, Have you fed in your Antenna / cable into the Rear of the VCR? And if your VCR has a Input selection switch, just check input to Tuner. You will get Blue screen if input selction is not Tuner but Camera / External source.
If this does not solve your problem, then there is no Input selection happening.

Ur tv have a Video output holes like Video IN Y,R,W.Used a RCA component cable like Y,R,W connected Y,R,W IN holes for the tv and the other end of cable out for VCR OUT input holes,now VCR player will play VHS tapes.
It depends on your setup.
Think of the Philips DVD3460 as an independent, standalone television set. It has its own analogue tuner, and its own video input.
If you have an analogue RF TV signal (coaxial cable) going in to the Philips DVD3460, you can watch whatever you want on any other TV connected to the TV signal coaxial cable, since the regular analog TV cable carries all of the channels.
However, if you are using a cable or satellite box and use the "Video in" function of the DVD recorder or just have the DVD recorder tuned to channel 3 or 4 to record from a cable or satellite box, you can't record one channel and watch another unless you have a second cable box..
You should be able to accomplish this. Run the antenna to your converter box. Run the video and audio outputs of the digital converter box to the inputs on your vcr. Your vcr should then be able to record the program (select line-in as the channel when setting up the recording). Hook your vcr audio and video output to your tv.
It's best to use a converter box that has an event timer - this allows the converter box to turn on at a specified time and channel. Otherwise you will need to manually set the channel you wish to record on the converterbox, and leave it turned on.
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
You CAN record one channel and watch another with satellite service, but it would require two separate DBS receivers. The issue is that all satellite broadcasting is encrypted until it hits the receiver, which decodes it and transmits it outward toward your other AV devices. If it weren't for the receiver, connecting the coax cable to your other devices and trying to tune channels with them would yield no signal and possibly much frustration. You would need to split the signal into each receiver and have one connected to the television via one input and the other to the recorder then to the TV via another input.
With cable, you can split the signal without having to have two boxes - this way the QAM tuner in the cable box is still capable of tuning channels while the recorder can tuner basic cable channels for recording separately. You can also have the cable box connected to the recorder via composite so that you can record premium stations on a DVD recorder input mode anytime you like - but you would have to be watching that channel at the same time unless the DVD recorder had a pass-through RF signal (rather than a composite clone) - meaning you could also use coaxial to your television from the recorder and tune channels separately on your television while the recorder is recording one channel.
A lot of what-ifs there, but it is all quite possible.
Usually the standard color coding for those connections are yellow, red and white. Yellow for video, red and white for audio left and right if it is stereo. Also pay attention on the the label of your vcr if it is input or output. You need need to connect it from output of your vcr to the input of your tv set. TV have also the same color coding. By the way the cable you use for this purpose is what we called RCA, which is also color coded. good luck!
