No, you can not connect your satalite to this unit. There is no connections in the back for the dish. To me, it's just an expensive recorder. It will only copy VCR to DVD and DVD to VCR. There is no tuner in this unit. Hope that answered your question.

I had this model before purchasing another DVD recorder / Player from another manufacturer. This unit plays and records the DVD's from the HDMI port, however the VHS side plays and records from the side of your TV with the red,white and yellow connectors. I had a problem properly connecting this unit....That's when i contacted customer service who assisted me. This is the instructions they gave to me. I personally favor recorders that are more simple to hook up and operate efficiently.

Yes, as long as your DirecTV receiver has composit outputs (Yellow, Red, White). That is if you cannot record Hi Def onto DVD.

It dubs in "real time" so however long the source is, is how long it will take (e.g. a 2-hour home movie on VHS will take 2 hours to dub to DVD). Note, though, that a 6-hour videotape is watchable, but a 6-hour dubbed DVD will be very, very poor quality. When I dub my 6-hour videotapes, I dub them onto 2 DVDs of 3 hours each.

The unit will record from a satellite box and transfer (dub) from VHS to DVD and vice versa. Just follow the appropriate connection diagram and you should be fine.

Yes you can.
Your Direct TV subscriber box has both HDMI and RCA output jacks. You can connect those outputs to your back input jacks on your ZV427MG9.
Use the source button on the remote to select the front or back inputs, it is probably best to use the inputs on the back panel.
Connect the video and the two (L-R) audio wires, those are the red and white connectors. This will give you stereo sound in your recordings.

Question

Basic cable TV no cable box

I was reading the reviews on here, and one person said it would not tape from basic cable coaxial, why not? It looks like it has the coaxial place on the back and if you hook that to your TV shouldn't that work? I have both coaxial and HDMI on the back of my TV but I do not have cable box or DVR just regular cable. So can I record or not?

The "coaxial place" on the back you refer to is a special connection for digital audio. The recorder does not have a place for a standard RF input and the unit has no tuner. You can record, but not directly from your cable. You must connect a line-output from your TV to a line-input on the recorder. With no cable box, that means your cable goes directly to the TV. For playback, you need a recorder line-output to be connected to a TV line-in. Then you either select a channel on the TV for record or set the TV to line-input to play back the signal from the recorder. Unfortunately, when the TV is set to line-input and the recorder is on but not playing you will probably get some feedback oscillations from this arrangement.
