Although you can make excellent copies of home analog recordings on a DVC, the quality will not be any better than that of the original.

When i try to record with the timer it say no signal but if i record the program i am watching it tapes

If you are experiencing a "No Signal" error when trying to record with the timer on your recording device, but it successfully records when you manually initiate the recording while watching the program, there are a few possible reasons for this issue:
  1. Timer Settings: Double-check the timer settings on your recording device. Ensure that the correct channel or input source is selected for recording. Verify that the start time, duration, and frequency (if applicable) are set correctly. It's possible that an incorrect setting is causing the "No Signal" error during timer-based recordings.
  2. Signal Source: Confirm that the signal source you are trying to record is compatible with your recording device. Check if there are any specific requirements or limitations regarding the signal type (analog or digital) and input compatibility. Make sure the signal source is properly connected to the recording device.
  3. Weak Signal Strength: If the signal strength of the channel or source you are trying to record is weak, it may result in a "No Signal" error during timer-based recordings. Verify the antenna or cable connection to ensure a strong and stable signal. Consider using a signal amplifier or improving the antenna setup to enhance signal strength.
  4. Tuner or Receiver Issues: The tuner or receiver within your recording device may be experiencing issues that prevent it from detecting the signal during timer-based recordings. If possible, try performing a reset or power cycle of the recording device to see if it resolves the problem. If the issue persists, it may require further troubleshooting or repair by a professional technician.
  5. Firmware or Software Updates: Check if there are any firmware or software updates available for your recording device. Updates can sometimes address known issues and improve device functionality. Visit the manufacturer's website or contact their customer support for information on how to update your device's firmware or software.
  6. Contact Customer Support: If the issue persists and none of the above steps resolve the problem, it's recommended to contact the customer support of your recording device's manufacturer. They have access to specific troubleshooting steps and can provide further guidance based on their knowledge of the device.
When reaching out to customer support, provide them with detailed information about the issue, including the model of your recording device and the steps you have already taken for troubleshooting. This will help them provide more accurate assistance and advice tailored to your specific situation.

Records & dubs but very poor resolution

Hi,

You've got a Dish Network's HD DVR and a Toshiba 720P HDTV - so this part of the mix will maintain the HD pictures and high quality digital audio that you're used to seeing.

The trouble begins when you introduced the Magnavox VCR / DVD device. The highest quality video content that this device can record is the 480 type, regardless of the input or source quality - which in your case would be 720P via HDMI cables. 480 is considered "SD" or "standard definition". This is the weakest link in your setup and is responsible for your unsatisfactory results.

The Magnavox will "upconvert" to 1080 lines of resolution. The key here is the term "upconvert" True HD recordings are taken of a scene and capturing either 720 or 1080 lines of resolution in the image or video (such as a camera taking a photo or video); or recording the playback of a previously recorded 720 or 1080 lines of resolution source. Recording a 480 lines of resolution source with a an 720 or 1080 lines of resolution device will not make the image HD. The recording can not possibly be better than the original. In fact, due to losses, each generation of copy becomes worse and worse. Upconverting simply "fills in" the missing parts between the 480 source and 720 or 1080 output with what it "thinks" is missing data. The results are what you see on the screen. The original capture did not save more info that 480 lines of resolution so it is really impossible to improve it.

The recording can not ever exceed the quality of the original (the Dish Network DVR at 720 or more) and will only be as good as the weakest link (the Magnavox DVD / VCR at 480). Additionally, the moment you change from digital to analog, you lose quality instantly. Digital signals - both video and audio will always be faithfully reproduced do to error correcting technology, etc. that simply isn't available in the analog world.

You need to use a digital recorder capable of capturing and playing back of 720 or 1080 lines of resolution video and AC3 audio for optimum video and audio on a Blu Ray recorder or other device with hard drives or memory such as MP3 recorder. Otherwise you'll have to accept reduced quality of standard L & R analog audio and 480 lines of resolution of SD video. You can not expect HD audio and video if you try to save to equipment designed for SD / analog.

Need to know what Cassette for this model jvc gr-sxm245

You can use VHS-C (C for compact) or S-VHS-C cassettes. The S-VHS-C is Super-VHS, for better quality recordings, but there isn't that much in it compared to digital. I'm assuming your camera has the S-VHS capability, as the title, otherwise stick to VHS-C.

Cannot transfer vhs to dvd. How can I do this on my Sony DVD recorder player

You need to have capture card in your PC, you can buy PCI TV Tuner, usually it has video input. Connect your VHS or any analog source to that input and a little exploration on its software. But video quality is not as good as digital to digital connection. Second, if you have digital video camera that is capable of analog A/V input option, connect it there and transfer your VHS or any analog recording to mini dv or digital 8 format(whatever you have) and transfer it then to your pc. Quite complicated but probably you already have the resources. Good luck

I want to copy VHS to VHS

Then all you need to do is get a pair of VHS machines and connect them via a scart lead. However if you want to copy a film or something which has macro-vision, then you will need a box between them that will correct it. Some people do/did make them but I can't tell you as it is illegal to copy them. You can of course get a video processor to improve the image, probably from places such as Maplin Electronics.
But to be honest you would better to have the recording etc converted to digital first, then you could transfer it back to VHS using just one video machine for uploading to and recording back. Computer shops sell these USB machines and they include the software to improve your recordings.

I have hooked my CDRW 120 but it isn't recording, need to know

Connect it as any other analog cassette deck, to the Tape In and Tape Out to provide monitoring of the recprding. If you have the right types of digital connectors and cables you can use them, too, for digital sources but you maye have to still Monitor recordings via analog or else you may disconnect the desired input.

Details about your receiver would allow me to be mor specific.
