So long as your VHS has an RF out then it will work as it is effectively the same as plugging in an antenna.

I can play dvds but not vhs. how do i hook it up or program it, etc, so I can watch vhs?

Hi dave
To answer your question;
In order to watch both the dvd and vcr on the same tv input , you need to use the dvd/vcr output of your jvc.
The component output is for the dvd only.
So if you want to keep the component output for high definition when playing a dvd you can connect another rca cable from the dvd/vcr output of your jvc to another input on your tv when playing vhs.
If you want the owners manual online you can find it HERE
You`ll find all the info on page 11
Hope this help Good luck

LXI VHS - No Video on TV

Hi Carol!

I'm assuming the box you have this connected to is a cable converter box. If this is true, it won't have inputs for video and audio; those RCA jacks are outputs to a TV or other device that can take that kind of input. Connecting your VCR outputs to those jacks does nothing.

The simplest way to connect the VCR to the TV is using the VCR's RF output (channel 4 in your case) from the connector that says "out to TV" or "antenna out". Just remember that outputs connect to inputs. Connect the cable box output (the one marked "out to TV") to the VCR's antenna input. Then connect the VCR's antenna output back to the TV. You will need to pick up another connecting cable with F-connectors if you don't have one. Then you just put the TV on channel 4 to watch tapes. Just leave the VCR turned off for normal TV viewing.

This connection scheme also allows you to record a program from the cable box. The only thing you have to remember is that the VCR must always be set to record on the cable box output channel (channel 4, you've said). The cable box selects a channel from the cable system, but it's always sending channel 4 to the TV. (If you're confused, you're not alone. This is the part most people have trouble getting a handle on.) One thing you can't do is record and watch different channels at one time, though.

If the TV has an AV input available, it will have the three color-coded RCA jacks on the back for the audio and video from the VCR. Connect the VCR to those inputs and switch the set to the AV input to watch tapes. (If the TV isn't a stereo model, it will have only one audio input jack - white - and you'll need to get a Y-adapter at Radio Shack to join the right and left audio into one plug for the TV.) You'll get a better-quality picture and sound connecting the VCR this way.

Hookup

Out to tv connects to your input or where the antenna for the tv is located. If you have an antenna hooked to you tv, remove it and hook in the vcr. Then put the antenna to input on the vcr.

Have cable tv and wanting to tape a certain channel

I would suggest that you disconnect the VCR from any signal source. UNPLUG the VCR from the power source [a/c] for at least one hour, more if possible. Before you are ready to plug the machine into a/c attach an antenna to the antenna INPUT, the VCR output goes to input of tv. [ DON'T attach cable box, or any such machine to the input of VCR.] Plug vcr into outlet and turn ON. Place TV-VCR switch on TV. [no remote control??] Change the channel MANUALLY, one channel at a time. If you see tv stations as you change the channel [KEEP changing until you have reached the " end of the line " of broadcast channels.] then you are good.Connecting the vcr to a cable box[ANY KIND!] you can only RECORD through the vcr what you watch on cable.

Connect tv vcr and dvd player to digital converter box

Yes you can first connect the converter box to the antenna first. Next hook the tv out on converter box to vcr in on vcr. Next hook the vcr out to the tv in and watch vcr and converter box on channel 3 sometimes channel 4.on the actual tv and of course change channels with converter box remote. For dvd player hook it straight to tv with red,white,and yellow cables that come with your dvd player. Then to watch dvd player if it's hooked up that way you have to put your tv on a input like video 1 or input 1. This can be done by using the tv remote and looking for a button that says tv/video or input or source button. This is some common names for that button on tv remotes.

Connections

Without the manual !!
1)VCR INPUT:: [Cable_antenna In] the coxial screws on from "output" of cable box or ( airwave )antenna.
2) VCR output:: connect another coxial into input of TV. You should be able to keep all the other wires connected from SONY theater system.
note:: your VCR has a switch for VCR\TV. When u have a VHS tape playing a movie & switch from VCR to TV, you will see the channel that is on the VCR not the cable box\ antenna input.
example:Cable channel is on Ch.122, & your TV must be set to Ch.3 to view cable.If your VCR is set to Ch/5 you may not see that Ch.122.You will still be able to see your VHS tape when u place the VCR\TV switch back to VCR.
I am going to share wt.u a $100,000,000.00 trick:put any ch.on cable box.Switch VCR\TV to TV,change channel ON VHS tuner.When u come to the [picture] that the cable box is on,Then that is the Ch.u can see cable ON the VHS.
U owe me!!

Vcr to tv connection

There are probably a couple of different ways to hook things up. One is you hook the VCR "in between" the indoor antenna & the set. Hook antenna to VCR RF/Ant In, then VCR RF/Ant out to the Antenna input on TV. Your VCR will then be able to record one channel, while you watch another on TV. To play back the VCR, or do any VCR setup, TV channel must be set to either channel 3 or 4. The other way is to use the Video & audio input/outputs on the VCR & TV. You will need the appropriate cable(s). Match the VCR video/audio outs with the set of inputs on TV. Video and audio out on the TV go back to the video/audio inputs on VCR. In order to view VCR playback, menu setup, you will need to select that input (line, aux, video 1 etc.) on the TV. This hookup probably won't allow the recording of a second channel while watching one. As regards the hft channels, I assume you live in an area where such is being broadcast. The TV can probably be put into a programming mode where it will scan for all available channels, and put them into memory, or they can be programmed manually.
