You just got direct tv how do you hook up the vcr to be able to record show is from the direct tv receiver?
okay here goes. first off what out-put on the receiver box coax, rca (red,white,yellow) s video, composite, component hdmi. lets say coax use rca cables from the out on the dtv receiver to the input on the vcr then run rca cables to the input on the tv. turn your receiver on turn the vcr off turn the tv on turn the tv to video/input. if you don't see sat video you cross the inputs and the outputs if you're sure it right turn on the vcr press the tv/video or input button on the vcr remote. blank vcr tape. and REMEmBER IT RECORDS WHAT IT SEE SO IF YOU PREE INFO GUIDE IT WILL SHOW EVERYTHING THAT THE TV SEE.

If you have direct tv and a cable box a DVD a vcr with surround sound and you would like each one to be able to go through the surround sound how should you hook them all up?
I don't understand why you would have Direct TV (sattelite) and cable TV? However, it depends on the input/output combinations of each component. I have my coaxial cable from …my sattelite to the sattelite in jack on the sattelite receiver, the out to TV coaxial from the sattelite receiver run to my VCR plugged to antenna in on the VCR and a coaxial cable from the VCR to the TV coaxial antenna in on the TV. That way, you can watch sattelite without turning the VCR on, but the sattelite receiver has to be off to watch VCR or VHS tapes. Then, run video patch cords (red, white and yellow) out of the DVD to the TV (if the TV has those types of inputs on the back) If you want all three components (sattelite, VCR and DVD) to run through surround sound and NOT the TV, run only the yellow video cord from the DVD to the TV. Run the red and white to the surround sound receiver for each component. Your surround receiver should have multiple inputs for sattelite/cable, VCR and DVD.
Answer . \nSee Bob Goodman's book, How electronic things work, latest edt, pg 216 and onwards will give you a clearer picture.
Simple . Simple. Have the cable connection go into the vcr first to the in connection and from there use the out connection to connect to the tv in connection. Now you have… all the same channels on the vcr as you do on the tv. If you have a cable box keep the vcr and tv set to the proper channel 3 or 4. If you are working with an antenna it is the same. If you want to watch and record different programs at the same time you will need to split the antenna or cable connection so that each unit gets its own clean signal and tune each devise to the desired channel.
Answer . You have easy two options. 1: if your TV has video/audio connections then plug the DVD player into the Video/Audio ports on the TV. Connect the Antenna/cable fr…om the wall to the input on the VCR and then connect a cable from the output of the VCR to the TV. Put the TV on 3 or 4 to watch the VCR and on Video to watch the DVD. 2: If your TV does not have Video/Audio inputs then connect the DVD to the VCR Video/Audio inputs and connect the VCR to the TV as described in option. TO watch DVD select the DVD as the input for the VCR and then turn the TV to CH 3 or 4..
this is not possible with direct tv in an obvious reasons. however, you can do this with dish network. before you connect your vcr to record satellite tv program, check first… if your VCR has an HDMI input. if you found an HDMI input slot, then you are good to go. connect your satellite receiver to the HDMI input slot of your vcr then attach the AV cables from your VCR to your television.
1. Turn the VCR on like you were watching a movie.. 2. Push the "Channel" button on the VCR until it's on the channel you want to record.. 3. Make sure you have a tape you c…an record on.. 4. Push "record". 5. Don't turn the TV off or change channels without hitting the "TV/VCR" button first.. 6. Push "stop" when you've finished recording
No, not unless you have the right cables and adapters.
How do you hook up a separate VCR player and a separate DVD player to a tv so you can watch tv and record at the same time?
Your TV will need to have two scart sockets, your recording equipment will need to connect, one scart each. The television should be able to switch between each connection, on…e called say external 1 and the other external 2. If your TV is capable of doing this then you can switch between connections as to which piece of equipment you wish to record to. Normally, you will be able to switch between connections using an on screen menu. If your TV is capable, the operating instructions should give you connection details and menu instructions. After setting up the programme you wish to record, the TV will have a third on screen connection, probably called TV, or in any case different from Ext.1 or Ext.2. You should swith to this Ext. if you wish to watch TV at the same time as recording. Hope this helps.

\nyou need to get an av selector box. just found this out myself. they sell them at walmart, radio shack, etc
You don't want to do this. The VCR will make the video look like crap. Get something called an Audio-Video Switch. This is the best way to hook multiple devices to a tv.. Als…o, DVD signal has a copy protection signal in it called Macrovision. You could go from the Xbox to the VCR then the TV using a device called a "Video Signal Stabilizer."
How can I Change volume control settings on google tv. I just got a Av receiver and i want to hook up my google tv?
Use the remote that came with your receiver to control the volume. Your Logitech Revue or Sony Internet TV can be connected to the receiver with HDMI or optical digital connec…tions.
I'm assuming you want to purchase a receiver. Try ebay. Before buying, call to make sure the receiver does not have a balance or it will not be activated.
well, every since my exotic dancer boyfriend left me its beenhard(just like his ....) so ive ben watching a lot of tv. My dogshave been tellling me i should stop watching so m…uch tv so i dresedthemup as hot dogs... get it ;) God i miss antonio with all myvajay jay. ALso i wear sparkly uggs and khakis to work
As long as the DirecTV receiver does not have a balance and is compatible with your DirecTV antenna you should be able to hook up a used receiver.
Run the S-Video from sat receiver to in on DVD Recorder (Left and Right Audio as well). Connect HDMI to input on TV.
