You can use plus or minus DVDs and the only limiting factor is the abilities of the equipment you will replay them on.

Question

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.

Not positive about a converter box, but it seems logical that the converter box could connect to your VCR/DVD first, and then VCR/DVD to TV.

Below is a link to a Magnavox website where you can download a PDF of the instruction manual.

Look on page 15 for connection to an external tuner.

Since your TV has no tuner I would guess you choose a channel using your digital converter box. If that is the case you could use this unit to record from your TV IF your digital converter box has the proper connections ... probably a red, white and yellow. "Out" from digital converter box to "In" on this unit either back L1 or front L2. See page 39 for these connections.

To record you MUST leave the digital converter box (if this is where you choose your channel) set on the channel you want to record. Also, be sure that you have selected the correct video input source L1 rear connection or L2 front connection (see page 39 in the instruction manual). Then you could set the program timer to the time you wish to record. Remember, what ever channel you are watching is the channel it will record.

I hope this helps.

Question

Where can I get the "right" DVD to dub to?

Magnavox model zv427mg9a shows some DVD to use with this unit. My manual shows these on page 27. Turns out that Verbatim DVD+rw 4x and Sony DVD+rw 4x are the only two compatible with this unit? So can someone tell me where to buy either one of these? I bought this unit to dub family videos for Christmas. I have gone to (4) stores and they are not avaliable.

Hi,
I couldn't find them either, I searched all over for either Verbatim, JVC, or Sony.
I finally found the Sony DVD+RW 23count at Target for $17.99.
Hope this helps, good luck.

I find DVD+rw's at my local Office Depot or Staples store. You just have to look for any DVD RW that has a + sign in it. The others have a - in them.

No, it is not. You would still need one of the converters to watch Netflix. The converters are well worth it though.

If you have a TV out, you see Netflix on your computer and pass it along to your TV.

And I noticed Netflix is now offering a Wii format if you have Wii already.

You have to be connected to tv in order to set up where you want to start the recording of your movies or media to DVD. Other than that, you don't need to keep your TV on. Basically, you need to see at what point you want your recording to start. If you have multiple programs recorded on your VHS tape, you want to edit the tape so you must be hooked up to the TV to see what you are recording.

No. However, it is suggested that you view as you copy so you can omit some VHS content, like commercials and previews. Also, you will know when to finalize the DVD so you can watch it on other DVD players.
