dvd player hooked up to the 5 ports on the back of the tv there are only 5 ports,
my old tv you had tv input 1(dvd player) input 2(vcr player) this new tv has tv, avg, comp.(dvd player), hmi, i saw someone said use the hdmi
bestbuy told me a splitter but i was able to hook it up before and it worked perfect PLEASE HELP
Solved! Go to Solution.
no i still use it for some fav shows not much anymore but things i want to keep it worked perfect with my old tv not with this new one i need help ASAP
i unhooked everything now i need to hook back up is it vcr out to dvr in
or dvr out to vcr in i think its the first vcr out dvr in the 3 cables.
i need help asap
then tv to dvr
no antenna goes to the vcr i am getting depressed
any help would be much appreciated the tv is an lg M 2452D the vcr is an old panasonic i have to get the #
the old hookups was vcr to dvr box dvr to to cable in to dvr switch tv to input 2 worked perfect.
this one only has avg comp(dvd) hdmi, usb
last night on the tv i seemed to get something of a signal the tv mode but could not view any tapes from the vcr
i need to get the signal from the dvr to the tv thanks
would a splitter work its seperate units one dvd player hooked into components there is no comp. for the vcr unlike my old tv which had input one input 2 dvd-1 vcr-2
i am going to look into buying another sanyo like i had so at least i can record from the dvr to the vcr and save the tapes.
if you had a dvd recorder how would you hook that up the same way, as you would need to get the signal from the dvr.
oh i think i see the other 3 outputs for the vcr hook them up to the tv???
there are 6 3 input and 3 output
i think the 3 output go to the dvr so the 3 input would go to the tv
is the coax the cable from dvr to the tv.
i may be able to buy an older tv on ebay for $25 just to have the setup i had before worked perfect all you had to do was hit input 2 on the remote for the tv and you were able to watch and record from the tv or the dvr.
hi thanks they send you a dvd instead of a manuel.
there are 5 components on the back ot the tv 3 for the hookup 2 for the sound so i think i hook the vcr up to the tv instead of the dvd player or vice versa and set tv to component.
maybe i can take a picture and sent as an attachment that would be best thanks
well that does look simple so you need 2 coaxial wires i just had one, dvr to tv
i was thinking how does the vcr get the signal.
seeing there is only 1 comp on the tv maybe the vcr should go there and see if i can use an hdmi for dvd to tv. actually that would work better those 5 wires are a pain if my dvd has an hdmi port.
that diagram is making it easy hope it works
i got it too play on the avg but i want the hookup as i had before where i was able to watch the tv from the vcr
do i hook up cables from dvr box to vhs
as i was able to do this before why not now i had no cables hooked up to the tv before they were hooked
from vcr to dvr able to get tv signal
GOT IT EXACTdoes exactly what i want it too do. i was getting the vcr to play then figured set the channels to the cable box VIOLA i heard sound then a picture. YOU ARE THE BEST!!!
yes it did that was great but i did need 2 coax cables one dvr to vcr , vcr to tv i figured somehow the dvr had to get a signal to the vcr. it was way different than my last set up. also i needed to program the vcr set up the channels it could not read anything. i figured that too how could it read channel 3 if the vcr had no channels programmed.
