Question about Zenith XBR716
I recorded VHS to DVD, it plays fine on the DVD/TV however it does not play on computer.
Your computer may not have the appropriate codecs. Codecs are basically translators
I would recommend the X-lite Codec package

hook the video output from vcr to dvd input at rear, then hook output from dvd to tv input. note; you can not record protected vcr movies you can only record tv shows from sattelite to vcr or dvd recorder. its best to record straight from sattelite to dvd recorder for picture clarity.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Your description indicates that the last step in the DVD recording has not been performed on these discs that were recorded on the Magnavox. This would be "finalize" or instruct the Magnavox that no other files would be written/recorded on the current disc. Thereafter, the Magnavox would complete the DVD disc making it playable in any other player. Normally, finalization would take a bit of time to complete.
Pls post back how things turned up. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Yes, you can do this if you have a VCR that has a channel on the VHS part of the unit that shows your DVD screen (see instruction manual for better explanation). The Sharp unit that you have might have this feature, if not then look at your instruction manual for how to hook up the VCR part of your unit to an external DVD player. Good luck to you!
