Vcr Playback For Easy Dvd


umpireshort
 Share

Recommended Posts

i have a combination of things that i can not get to work so am considering buying easy dvd

 

i have a magnavox vcr that i presently have hooked up to a dvd sylvania burner combination of cable box and rf modulator.

i presently can not get the right hookup with all these via the tv to get a picture from the vcr or the tape burnt using rca out and in from the vcr to the dvd and disconnecting the cable box input.

 

does the vcr have to be set up in clock mode and channel modes to use easy dvd?

 

on this system i have windows home premium 32 bit a AMD Athlon II X4 630 Processor, 2800 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)

 

2 g ram

 

tks

Actually your existing setup should work??? You did nave All 3 (yellow/white/red) connectors hooked up to Input on the Recording device???

 

With the V2D device & software, you hook up and Play… Play is the only ‘mode’ you need.

 

If you have Win7, just make doubly sure the Box says it it Win7 Compatible in the lower right corner!!!

Are you saying that this should have worked on the tv - dvd- vcr- dubbing i was trying with the rf modulator, or that the easy cd should work om my pc with the vcr?

 

There is a cablebox involved as i mentioned in the first set up which has nothing to do with Roxio, but i am concerned with the playback via the vcr, ordinarily for these to function at all you have to get the set up screen for the vcr to set the clock etc, i can't get it straight via Funai either

 

I realize there is a Roxio question here and one that is not, but i don't need spend 60.00 just for an experiment if it is non functional?

thanks in advance

I have a VCR setting on the floor next to my computer connected to nothing except AC power and the red, white, and yellow cables hooked from the VCR Output to the Roxio USB Device, plugged into my PC's USB port.. Don't make this more complicated that it is and I have no clock set on the VCR...

The reason i ask is i have that setup minus the Roxio software on my vcr connected to my stand alone dvd burner but i can't get a transfer, it's all colored pixel screen , like a snowy black and white picture, There is a problem apparently in the rf modulator hookup so that's why i was concerned if it would "the vcr work" with Roxio easy" on my pc, i'd just forget the other setup... Funai says its hooked right but its not working.

 

thanks for both sides

Am I getting this correct?

 

You have your VHS connected to a stand alone DVD Burner, "minus the Roxio software" not installed anywhere, no PC connected to the VHS or DVD Burner and you can't get a signal?

yes that is correct, there is a cable box, plus an rf modulator, the rca jacks on the out on the vcr to the in on the dvd burner, cable box coaxial i disconnect, other wise i get the tv signal, w/o it i get no signal. i don't know if the rf wire from the vcr needs to be connected for this they say no "funai", i have burnt it both ways, connected i get the tv signal, disconnected i get the colored snow, this burner has no tuner but it burns tv signals fine. i can not see the vhs tape playing at all, i put it in another vcr and the tape plays, i have not reconnected the vcr to another tv to see if it does play, it's not that old not used much, i know from past experiences these had to be set up with the setup menu, but i've never done what i'm trying to do before by trying to dub from one unit to another, i have another unit that is a combination dvd vcr but these tapes are not stereo so i'd like to use this other one, its a magnavox and i don't have model # handy at the moment./ the coaxial goes to the cable box to the dvd burner to the rf modulator to the tv, funail says this doesn't matter., this is a sylvania dvd-r/// no roxio no pc involved here.

thanks again

umpireshort,

 

I know nothing about "funai" a cable box, plus an rf modulator, the rca jacks on the out on the vcr to the in on the dvd burner, cable box coaxial i disconnect.

Easy VHS to DVD Software along with the USB Capture Device Hardware is designed to install on a computer (check system requirements) then plug in your VHS to the USB Device and insert that device into a USB 2.0 port on your PC.. Together they capture your analog VHS and digitize it to your hard drive on the PC. After edits, cuts, trims, you burn back the digital files to a DVD...

Sounds like to me that you don't have the DVD recorder setup correctly for the Composite INPUT. I have a LiteOn DVD recorder. There is a button on the remote called 'source'. You must change the source to the Composite IN before you can record from a VCR. Otherwise it defaults to the RF IN.

I do not have a "source" on the remote, it is set for L1 which is the rear, but is that the dvd burner and the rca jacks?

 

i can not pull up a setup screen on it because the cable box it set up with the dvd burner, i'd have to uninstall - disconnect it it or move everything to another tv. i appreciate the thought, it has to be a connection like this some where?

thanks

 

maybe this unit is not designed for this? but why the extra inputs- outputs then?

I would suggest reading the manual for the DVD recorder. If you don't have it, then look for it on the net.

What does that have to do with it? Shouldn't matter what you have connected to the DVD recorder. You should be able to see the DVD recorder's setup screen.

 

That makes me wonder about your entire connections.

Cable Box to DVD recorder RF IN

DVD recorder RF OUT to your TV

VCR composite OUT to DVD recorder composite IN

 

Since the DVD recorder is connected directly to the TV, you should have no problem viewing the set up for the DVD recorder. Make sure you have the remote to the DVD recorder and NOT the VCR!

 

For this to work, you have to change the SOURCE in the DVD recorder to Composite IN. You should then be able to watch and record the VCR..

 

To watch Cable again, you would have to change the source in the DVD recorder back to RF IN.

for what ever reason, this setup by charter, you can onl;y watch the channel; you are recording, you can not flip the switch dvd-tv or vcr

 

when they first hooked us up about 4 years ago on digital set top box now cable box, you are locked in , when it was analog you could switch back and forth on the vcr, if i did that on the dvd burner the other channels were snowy, its their setup not mine

 

i've gone over these connections several times with FUNAI CO, i am about to just forget it.

 

after reading space requirements on easy dvd for my pc, i will have to get another drive besides the 3 i have to have enough space if i were to try that

i think we are at a stalemate

 

thanks for trying

 

there is an rf modulator in this setup also

 

i've tried that "setup screen" \ not source/ with FUNAI reps also, does not do that, the L1 line is set on the back, the L2 is front, is not in use

 

the setup screen works with the dvd burner, but when i disconnect the coaxial it does not

if i leave the coaxial connected the signal burns from the coaxial not the vcr---cable company"

You need at least 15GB of free space to capture, edit and burn a DVD. Maybe even more than that depending on how much video you need to capture to edit down.

you can onl;y watch the channel; you are recording, you can not flip the switch dvd-tv or vcr
Yes, I know that, but it isn't relative to your issue and only confuses things more.

 

WHICH machine do you have the TV connected to? It almost sounds like you have the TV connected to the Funai VCR. No wonder you can't see the setup for DVD recorder. We need to know exactly how everything is connected. With three different devices, the wires must be correct AND the setup in the VCR AND the setup in the DVD recorder must be correct or it just won't happen.

These type of problems are very difficult to solve on line, if I lived near you it would just talk a few minutes to sort it out.

 

Get a friend/neighbor/co-worker/relative who has some basic VCR/DVD/TV background come out and give you a hand.

well it's been a long time since i been down this road, but luck was on my side

 

the cable box had a malfunction over the week end i had the tech here today , he showed me my stupidity, everything was hooked up right, except "the vcr had a flip switch" on the back, then i switch the channel selection on the dvd burner to L1 Hooray// still only one channel at a time as i burn of course, will not do cpr titles however, so i guess if i want to do those its Easy Vhs to Dvd , on ly have about 20 titles to do for them, so i might just buy them a dvd vcr combo

 

thanks again

Back to Easy Vhs to DVD, Wally world has a version here for 50.00 presently, i do not no the version,

looking at the specs on the web comparing ,m it says this one "Rioxio", will do copy right vhs, I realize the issue here

and these are for my grand kids there are about 15 left to do, the burner would not do some, i have no reason to purchase this except for them, so i guess if it installs on my system it will do these movies?

 

thanks

Roxio software is not meant to copy protected discs in breach of copyright. Make sure that you are comparing apples to apples.

under compatibility left column

 

this is not resale purpose fyi

 

Notice they say nothing about Copying Movie VHS tapes; the example are personal tapes (wedding videos).

 

It doesn't matter if the copying is done for sales or personal use.

xxxxx comes with the xxxxx. This software app is outstanding and will allow you to record copyrighted material. Use this software to capture, store, edit and share videos. Posting online from xxxxx is fast and seamless. The software also has an option to burn VHS tapes directly to a DVD. There is no need to store the material on your computer and take up large amounts of space. From video capture to DVD burn, you won’t be disappointed with this fantastic software that is easy-to-use, especially with the xxxxx Capture device.

 

The unit is a fantastic tool to record from your VCR to DVDs, but that is just the beginning. Use the device to easily record material from your DVR to your computer. Use the xxxxx converters to capture old VHS tapes and make a compilation of memories for a wedding or family reunion. Upload transferred content to YouTube or your iPhone. You can spend hours with the xxxxxx converters and never run out of things to do.

 

-----------------------

 

We were able to use the Roxio Easy VHS to DVD device with a large variety of software. We breezed through Windows Movie Maker and we were able to watch movies with fantastic quality using the VLC. We tried using the product with other Roxio software with great success. From capturing the video to making labels and burning DVDs, we found Roxio Easy VHS to DVD to be compatible with most programs. You will also be able to record copyrighted material with this unit.

it's kind of strange on 2 facets even with the law the videos the grand kids have are useless to them, the vcr is broken, they don't have the money to buy a vcr, i could do it, that vcr will fail the measly dozen tapes they have are in a bag sitting in a corner, i guess grampa can go to jail for using vhs to dvd software that is manufactured that does the half of the dirty work. if i was in the under ground which i am not i wouldn't be asking the question that apparently has a yes answer to it, it's really FUNNY, that no one will admit to what is in black and white except reciting it is illegal, the software companies should not make it available or at least not state as thet have byu product comparisons and reviews that is does the illegal copying. how many over the air broadcasts are copied that also states "this may not be reproduced without the expressed consent of the provider.

 

fun discussing the ramifications of technology and the law?

 

i won't ask any more the answer has been expressed

thanks

Extending that to the extreme - that would mean governors on all cars so they could not exceed the speed limit !

 

There are some legal exceptions to the rule; mostly for teachers or professors doing educational work. Equipment design to eliminate that feature would bar them from doing legitimate and legal copying.
