This unit has no tuner. In order to record television programs, you must have a some type of unit that does, and record from the audio out and video out of the unit, to the audio in and video in on the recorder. The tuner can be in a TV, cable box, or satellite box.

Difference between zv427mg9 & zv457mg9?

ZV427MG9 says it is tunerless and cannot record from TV without a tuner box. Is the cable box considered the tuner box? Or do I need ZV457MG9 which has its own tuner box? What is difference in price?

I purchased the tunerless unit and connected it to my DirecTV satellite box and it is working fine. I'm not sure about a cable box, but I assume it works the same way. I don't know how much price difference there is between getting a tunerless and one with a tuner.

Can I transfer my Disney VHS tapes to DVD?

I have about 60 VHS movies I would love to be able to give my granddaughter, but she only has a DVD player. Can I transfer these Disney tapes to DVD or are they blocked in some way? I paid for them already in VHS format and don't want to have to buy them again in DVD format.

Probably not. Most VHS tapes produced incorporated the technology called "Macrovision" which sent a signal to your VCR to scramble the picture when in record function. The only way around Macrovision, unless you are a real techie, is to buy a device that won't react to it, usually made about the time VHS and Beta were slugging it out for the VCR format title. That makes any DVD recorder not an option for recording those types of movies.

Call the online help phone number located on the device's box flaps, it should be a 800 (toll free number).
If you damaged the device, you are out
alot of money. It took me all night to figure out my hook up, but my situation
was very different from the standard-TV
hook-up. Try switching your out plug cables with your in plug cables. That may be your problem. That was one solution I found after staying up all night getting the thing hooked-up.
Call company first before proceeding!

Check the remote for the TV. It probably has a video input button. You will need to change the remote to video 1 or 2, depending on what connection you made to the TV.

When you are dubbing a DVD from a VHS tape, you do not need to be watching the tape on your TV - you can just watch TV like normal. Just get the dubbing started, then switch your TV input back to your cable box (or antenna, if you don't use a box).

I have no digital service with Comcast and thus no "box". My coax cable plugs directly into the TV and used to plug directly into my old VCR and from there to the TV via a coax. This Magnavox unit will not work with my system unless I switch to Digital service with Comcast. I called Magnavox Customer Service and found out that an external tuner will not help me connect this unit. I am not going to spring for the extra money for getting Digital service and thus I am going to return this unit.

since comcast is similar to cable, that is actually your "tuner" I'm assuming you have a box or dvr from them? If you do, then run the wires from the out video & audio of the box/dvr to the in video & audio of the dvd player then, unhook the out to tv wire from the box/dvr & hook it to the out to tv on the dvd player. (if you don't have a box/dvr & only have a cable wire coming from outside straight to your tv, then unhook it at the tv, hook it to the in from cabel/satellite on the dvd player then hook another wire from the out to tv on the dvd player to the tv) this should work. However, when you are not recording & just want to watch tv, if you have the dvd player on, you will most likely have to have it (dvd player) on channel 3 or 4 to watch or just turn it off & don't worry about it. When recording, it (dvd player)probably has to be on channel 3 or 4, whatever shows on your tv screen, is what it will record. hope this helps

Yes you are supposed to be able to record to either or make a copy of one to the other. TV to DVD, TV to VHS, DVD to VHS, and VHS to DVD. HOWEVER... if the program has any kind of copyright protection signal, the unit will stop and give you an error. In my 12 hours experience with the unit, every movie and every show has been blocked. I wasted my time buying it. I can't even record my own home movies to DVD. So good luck! I am taking mine back.

Haven't ever tried it, but i would assume you could, if you have it hooked to a cable or satellite box. You would need to use the remote & press the vcr button, then use the channel up & down buttons til it shows the picture of the show from your cable or satellite box. More than likely, it should record whatever is showing on the tv, but you'll have to watch that while it records, should you change the channel of the cable or satellite box, it will record whatever you change it too.
