Re: orion vcr model vr313
You need not set your VCR to either CHs 3 or 4. You simply have to set it to the channel that you would want to record. Further, the coax either from your cable or aerial should go straight to the VCR for it to receive any of the channels. The VCR then maybe hooked up to your TV either buy a shorter cable and this is when you set the TV to either 3 or 4. Alternately, you can use the RCA connector from your VCR to your TV.

check programmed recordings you will have a clash possibly in time and date on another channel. If the dvd records two channels at once normally check if it has two channels already set up at the same time to record i the scheduled recordings.
you may have two different channel positions that are the same tv station and have set up two different channels to record the same show. and then you may be trying to record another different channel at the same time. check and delete extra channel schedule.
Another way to have this is as an example say programmed record at channel nine f0r show 1 at 7:30 to 8.35 day xyz and then you set up show 2 to record at channel nine say from 8:30 to 9.35.day xyz this will use two time frames during the overlap from 8:30 to 8:35 on day xyz and if you decide to record a third show you can't between the overlap time frame
I cannot find on online manual for this model. If dual channel recording an actual specification for the model? If it really should be able to record two channels at once then it may be similar to the DishNetwork DVR. It has one input but internally splits and creates two different outputs for two different channels.
Check to see if there is a mode setting for single/dual. You will need to set it to "dual". The Dishnetwork DVR has what it calls TV1 and TV2. You can record to TV1 but cannot watch a different channel on TV1 while it is recording. You CAN however watch and record a different channel on TV2 while TV1 is recording. (and vice versa). You can also record two shows while watching other recorded shows.
I'm guessing that you may need to look for some recording options to be able to record two channels at once.
If your using digital cable it will only record channel 3 or 4 depending on what your cable box is set to...In order for it to record different channels it needs a cable source plugged directly into it. You will only be able to record standard cable channels 1-125. If it's digital cable forget about... you can only record it with channel 3/4 a solution to this would be using a 2nd digital box.. "auto-programming" may be limited even with a 2nd cable box. If your only using standard cable 1-125... you can use the TV/VCR button it will switch between the tuner of the TV & VCR allowing you to record while you watch a different show... keep in mind this won't work for digital channels which if I'm not mistaken comcast has already converted all channels to digital even basic.
Don't hook the DVD/VCR recorder through ur cable box.Hook the DVD/VCR recorder through ur tv only it should work find.This way each units have it own direct functions to the tv.U recording the shows from the tv not the cable box ok.
if you are using a cable box / converter dvd-r and tv must be on ch 3.............
okay you dont have a cable box the tv is set to ch 3....the dvd-r, set up, initial settings and change cable to air...........then channel setting auto (scans all channels except HBO)...now you able to look at a dvd, record your show (s)
THE CABLE OR ANTENA NEED TO SCREW INTO THE INPUT OF YOUR UNIT THEN A SMALL WIRE OUT TO THE TV FROM YOUR UNIT PUSH RECORD WHEN SHOW IS ON TV !SO ITS CABLE INTO VCR INPUT THEN CABLE FROM OUTPUT OF VCR TO TV ....TV ON CHANNEL 3 AND VCR UNIT ON CHANNEL 3
Your two problems are related - the DVD player lost contact with the local PBS channel, which altered its internal clock.
Add a red, white and yellow cable from one of the outs on the back of the cable box to the slot marked AV1 IN on the back of the Philips. Then redo the channel programming - press the System Menu button and change Tuning Band to CATV - it will then ask you if you want to do an Auto Channel Set - say Yes.
Once it is done with the channel programming, turn the DVD player to whatever channel PBS is on in your area's cable service. Then go back to System Menu - select Clock Set and go to Auto. Alternatively, you can select Manual under Clock Set and change the date by hand).
Make sure u have signal on both tuners on the DVR ( check it in your set-up screen). both tuners should have the same siganl strength. Directv's DVRs, if installed correctly, give u the option of recording one channel and watch another, or recording 2 seperate channels( 2 tuners). If you are recording 2 seperate shows and u change the channel one of your recordings will cancel .
I assume you're trying to record from the DTV box. You will have to set the DTV box to play through channel 3 then tell the VCR to record channel 3. So basically the VCR always THINKS it's recording channel 3, but in reality it's recording whatever channel the DTV box is on. You will be unable to used timed recording unless you leave the box on whatever channel it is you're wanting to tape.
