Hi Nellie.
Connect the DVD Recorder Video/Audio OUT to the TV (In most cases your TV must have a Audio/Video input) using one of the methods below Connect Audio (Red/White) and Video (Yellow) OUT on the DVD recorder to the Television Audio / Video IN. Connect the HDMI OUT on the DVD Recorder if one is available to the Television HDMI IN.
try this link.

SOURCE: Humax DRT800 DVR recorder has no sound

Loss of sound is often a problem with the SCART connections. The SCART may not be pushed in securely, or if the SCART is old the pins may not be good. Check SCART is securely in, or try another SCART lead.

SOURCE: have magnavox dvd recorder record direcTV DVR programs w/ hdtv

I am unfamiliar with this unit.
If you have scart connecters on both, connect av2 on the tv to av in on the recorder. set the recorder to record from av source.
You should now record a program, I think the static is the fact that composite is out from the dvd only, not an input, and in on the tv, not an output.

To get the functionality you're looking for you'll need to to take the cable running from your DVR output and connect it to the input on your DVD recorder. Next you want to connect a cable from your DVD recorder output and connect it to your TV. If this is an HD set up you want to use HD Cables for all of the connections.

SOURCE: I am trying to hook

Hi there,

I've drawn you a quick diagram to show the basic correct setup.

belectric_117.jpg
Your TV has 3 HDMI ports so you can connect both the DVD and Dish DVR to the TV using HDMI cables. You should connect the Dish DVR to the HDMI 1 input on the TV and the DVD recorder to the HDMI 2 input.

If you are getting a "No Signal" message from the DVD recorder, that's a simple setup issue, but I will need some more details from you to help you resolve this.

The final connection is from the Dish DVR to the DVD recorder. It is always better to record directly from the source rather than the TV. Not all TVs have a video out feature and, even if yours does, it wont send the video from the Dish DVR to the DVD recorder.

The problem you have is that your Dish PVR only has one HDMI OUT port and you need this to connect to the TV. It is also unlikely that your DVD recorder has an HDMI IN port, so you need to find another method of connection between these two. You stated that you did not want to use AV cables but there seems to be a case of mistaken identity regarding some of the sockets on your devices.

"Composite" and "AV" ports are generally the same thing, so I think you may be confusing one of these with "Component" ports. These use the same type of cable as Composite ports but uses a cable with more plugs. It would also be very unusual for an HD device to have 3 composite ports and no component ports.

I suggest you make the two HDMI connections shown in the diagram and then reply to me with the following details:

1. Model number of TV
2. Model number of DVD recorder
3. Model number of Dish DVR
4. Which cables do you have spare for connecting the Dish DVR to the DVD recorder.

I will then be able to check all of the ports on all of the devices and let you know the best way to connect everything together with the cables you have and so that it all works. I will also be able to explain the "No signal" message and draw you a setup diagram if required.

Regards,
BElectric

SOURCE: how do you hook recorder

Simple. Connect the composite output from the VCR to the composite input on the back of the Presidian. Then connect the coaxial output from the back of the DVR to the coaxial input on the back of the Presidian. Then connect the coaxial output from Presidian to the coaxial input on the back of the TV. Turn everything on and enjoy! :-)

You hook your composite or component video and audio from the PS2 into the DVR inputs. The outputs from the DVR then need to go to the TV. Make sure that when you want to record, the DVR is set to whatever input the PS2 is plugged into

How do i hook up my H.264 4ch DVR to my computer directly my router has upnp enabled


If you want to hook up the PC to play media, I suggest you install software called Plex for free (plex.tv). The Roku has the Plex app so you can play through the Roku or most smart TVs, Amazon Fire, or directly via an HDMI cable from your PC to the TV. It will automatically sort your media once you go through the setup and it is probably the best variant of the KODI/XBMC media systems out there for all platforms.
If you want to record from your DVR to your PC, that gets more complicated. The HDMI cord usually has certain protocols that keep you from recording copyrighted programs DMAC (Digital Media Access Control) so you'll need a video input card that has RCA inputs for red/green/blue or a yellow video input and either a red/white RCA input for sound or an SPDIF Infrared (IR) sound cable and use the software that comes with the tuner card.

Cant record two programmes at once


Well no matter the DVR, you should be able to record 2 programs at once...but you CANNOT watch a 3rd live while they are recording...also, if your DVR is hooked up to more than one tv and someone is watching something else in the other room, it will not record 2 at once, either. You can watch RECORDED programming while 2 others are recording, but not live tv.
You might want to check how many "inputs" your DVR has...most have 2 which allows the double recording...if you have an older DVR maybe you only can do one at a time. On my DISH box, they call these "TV1" and "TV2".

Hope this helps.

I need to know how to hook up my vcr to my dvr to record something off of it onto a vhs tape. directv said i need to contact the maker of the vcr & guess what RCA doesn't help with that. but i...


Ok. You connect the vcr to the televison first. Take an rca cable and connect it to the video out of the vcr then connect the other end to the av input on your television. Then take another set of RCA cables and connect them to the RCA av input on your vcr and connect the other end to the output on your dvr.

Now hopefully your tv has another RCA input you can hook directly to the dvr with another set of RCA cables to another one of the dvrs outputs. If not then don't worry about that.

Now make sure the tv is switched over to the av video RCA input the vcr is connected to and turn the vcr on. The vcr should be in input and when it is you will see the picture from your dvr and you will change channels with your dvr remote. You can now record using the vcr remote.

use a video splitter for the audio and video, or go out of the DVD player in to the DVR, out of the DVR into the TV (WARNING!!!! Trying to hook a DVD player to any recording device may trigger the copyright protection, causing blue flashes, and distorted pictures)
