You need a cable to go between the yellow (picture), red and white (sound) sockets on the strong to the VCR.
Those cables will connect to one of the VCRs AV inputs. You then need to use the VCR remote control to switch from the now defunct analogue tuner to the Line or AV input. Put your TV on the channel you use to watch video tapes. Switch on the Strong receiver. Do the switch to the Line or AV input on the VCR. When your VCR is on the correct input then you will see the picture from the Strong receiver on the TV. You can confirm it is the correct source by displaying the Strong's EPG.
When you come to make recordings, the Strong will need to be left on the channel that you want to tape. If your TV already has an aerial feed and isn't relying on the strong for its signal then you can watch another channel on TV.
VCRs are analogue. So their tuners won't pick up digital TV signals, and their output from the aerial socket is analogue too. You'll have to make sure your TV is on the analogue TV tuner and then tuned to the VCR output channel if you want to use the aerial connection for viewing. It's probably a lot simpler though to use the VCR's AV output to the TV.
If you connect a TV receiver (Aerial/cable/satellite) to the AV input on the VCR, then switch the VCR to that AV input, you will see and be able to record programmes.
Probably not. Better picture results are achieved with either S-Video, standard RCA AV cable (yellow-white-red), or YUV component cable (red-green-blue) (component output does not have audio - this requires extra cable to be connected). The video via either one of these 'AV' connections is stunning (based on a standard 16:9 LCD TV using a Panasonic DVD recorder).
RF tends to be lower quality - as opposed to AV/digital input. AV input/YUV component handles digital better. No one connects their DVD devices to their TV via RF (either directly to the antenna socket or with a modulator/attenuator) anyway. Because a VCR is mostly analogue, it will work fine with an RF connection, but DVD is digital, and so won't work as well, if at all.
RF also goes through the tuner in a TV, creating cross-interference, whereas AV is a direct input and is separate to the tuner.
I would say an RF modulator would not be designed to handle the output frequency that your DVD device generates. Throw the modulator out, or perhaps get another TV, or use RCA cables instead if the TV has AV inputs. Whichever is cheaper and easier, but don't use RF accessories except a standard antenna if/as required.
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.
Select AV-1 or some thing in TV and plug DVD recorder Video-Audio output in AV-1 input of TV, playback any DVD and confirm its picture and sound in TV. Press Stop button of DVD recorder to stop playback. Now plug Video-Audio output of VCR in DVD recorder input and select AV Input in DVD recorder, insert VHS tape in VCR and playback it and confirm you get VHS picture and sound in TV via DVD recorder. Hookup between TV, DVD recorder and VCR is completed. Playback VHS tape in VCR, Insert blank DVD disc in DVD recorder and press Record while you see VHS tape picture in TV. Hope this info will help you.
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.
MOST LIKELY the RF out put signal is the same as a local tv chanel 1) try menue change rf output suggest rf 68! OR connect av leads (red white yellow)from the output of your vcr and connect the other end to an Av input eg AV1 on your TV use tv remote to select the AV input
Connect the AV output of the Sky box to the AV input of the Panasonic combo.Look at rear of the Combo and you will observe input and output RCA connections.Using RCA leads, hookup the Av output of the Panasonic to the audio/video input of the Sony tv. Power up Appliances, and you should be OK.
The following Models can be used as a recorder to record from a VCR, TV or another Camcorder.
2004 - SC-D107
2003 - SC-D5000, SC-D27
2002 - SC-D180
Recording In Player Mode
1. Connect the camcorder to the VCR or TV with the AUDIO/VIDEO cable (provided) (to the A/V Outputs on External Device)
2. Set the power switch of the camcorder to PLAYER mode.
3. Turn on the VCR or TV.
4. Insert the blank tape with protection tab closed into the camcorder.
If you want to record from a connected VCR, insert a recorded VHS tape into the VCR.
5. Press the MENU button, turn the MENU DIAL to highlight A/V and press the ENTER button.
6. Turn the MENU DIAL to highlight AV IN/OUT and press the ENTER button to select AV IN.
"AV IN" and picture appears on the LCD monitor.
OUT : Releases the INPUT mode.
7. Press the START/STOP button to set the camcorder to REC PAUSE mode.
"PAUSE" appears on the LCD monitor.
8. Select the TV program or playback the VHS tape.
9. Press START/STOP button to start recording.
If you want to pause recording for a while, press the START/STOP button again.
10. To stop recording, press the (STOP) button.
* Recording from an analog VCR to the camcorder is only possible when the VCR is playing back at normal speed.
* If you want to see the camcorder picture with a TV, set AV IN/OUT in the menu to OUT.
