It is the signal from the 4 local stations that is the problem, because you can record all others ok. Borrow another VCR and try to record them, if its the same tell the people who run the local channels that they are losing viewing figures, because their channels cannot be recorded.
Ok. If you have a tv that has a five hole input (green, blue, red, white, red) this is the preferred hook up. That cable is called a component cable. The green blue and red part is for video and the white is audio left and the red is audio right.
If your tv does not have the five hole input it should have a three hole input. Those colors are yellow, white, and red. This is called a composite cable.
You just match up the colors that's all. Your tv should have an input or tv video button on the remote control that would allow you to switch inputs or you may be able to get to video 1 and video 2 and etc by using the channel up and down button and going lower than channel 2.
The cables you received are called "component" when the picture is broken down to its component colors, red, green, and blue.
When compared to "composite" cables (RCA), the yellow is all the components in one, which is the video cable. The other red and white are audio.
Your component should be RGB, Red & White (audios)
What you need to do is buy a composite cable for the Wii, which shouldn't cost that much--usually under $10 bucks. Save the component cables for when you get a new TV since those are the more expensive of the two!
most cable companies will provide you a high def. cable box for no additional cost. swap digital for high def box. run dvd into high def cable box and run hdmi output from cable box to lg input. hope this helps
well you would need to hook up cable box to dvd recorder. the only draw back first off is one you cannot get hd onto a dvd. you can down scale and it will seem a little cleaner than standard def but of coarse it will never be high def. I'm not to familiar with the motorola boxes but if they offer dvr's in your area i would suggestgetting one you can record all channels then afterwards transfer them to a outside device. but as i said before high def cannot fit onto a dvd unless you plan to copy one movie to 6-7 disc. Just keep in mind a standard high def channelcan only fit 2 max on one freq due to the amount of data transfer as opposed to 10 to 12 standard def digital channels
Some CATV hi-def receivers are known to have issues keeping up with the datastream. Symptoms from the picture going solid black to other unpredictable video have been seen. Ask your CATV provider if they can switch your brand to another manufacturer. If your cable box has component video jacks in addition to HDMI, try that too. Some boxes will output RGB perfectly but bomb out with HDMI.
Yellow: Composite Video
Red: Right Audio Channel
White: Left Audio Channel (mono)
Does your TV have a video & audio OUTPUT on the back of the TV?
If so, will need another set of audio/video cables and you need to connect the yellow cable from the video OUTPUT of the TV to the video INPUT (yellow) of the DVD/VCR and connect the Red cable from the right OUTPUT of the TV to the red INPUT of the DVD/VCR. Then connect the white cable from the left OUTPUT of the TV to the white INPUT of the DVD/VCR. If your TV is not in stereo, just connect up the white cable for mono audio.
If your TV set does NOT have audio/video OUTPUTS, then you will still need another set of audio/video cables and connect the yellow cable from the video OUTPUT of the cable box to the yellow video INPUT of the DVD/VCR and connect either the red or white (or both if possible) to the red or white audio INPUTS of the DVD/VCR.
You need two sets of cables because you want to watch DVD's & tapes on your TV (Path #1) and you want to record the TV channel shows back to your DVD/VCR (Path #2).
