Question

Does this have a TV tuner or not?

The specifications show that it has a tuner and all the channels it can receive. However, the initial description of the product shows that it does NOT have a tuner. So does it or doesn't it???

I don't think this one has a tuner but I have my cable hooked up thru it and it picks up all my channels (it is in my daughter's room without an HD box). I can get all the channels just fine in her room. Could not figure out how to get it hooked up to HD box in living room. There is another unit that is a step up above this one, costs a little more but it does say it has a tuner. Personally, I would get the one with the digital tuner.

Yes, it is very easy to hook up either from the front or the back. However this will not copy Disney movies. I have been able to copy many of my VHS to DVD using this unit and have been pleased with the results but not everything will copy (and there are ways around that if you google Sima CT-200 or Sima GO-DV 2000).

There is no mention of DVD-RAM as an acceptable format in the manual, so I doubt it.

You can try it, just don't buy a spindle of 100 blanks.

I have done just that. Finished yesterday. Only problem: It will only record for two hours on regular mode. I will look thru the manual to see if i can extend the record time. There is no display, so adjusting the settings will be tricky. I have a Swann set with two cameras and a monitor. I will post again when i try a diff. setting.

In your question, you didn't include which tv service provider u have but Directv has told me that if i pull up my tv guide or change the channel, it'll show up in the recording (i'm using a vcr but rep says it will be on either vcr or dvd recorder), so from that, i can only record one show @ a time. You should get in touch with your tv service provider who should know how the would transfer to the recorder.

Question

connecting dvd recorder to dvr

I have a satellite dvr and would like to record items recorded on it. How do I connect the dvd recorder to the dvr? I have tried several different ways and can only get the dvds to play and not record. Also, is it possible to record to the dvd recorder without directly connecting it to the dvr...there are other tvs in the house that can record on the dvr without being directly connected to it. One more thing, should I see the setup screen on the channel that the tv is set to for the satellite?

Your DVR has 2 outputs for the RCA cables (red, yellow and white)-well i have Directv, but i assume all dvrs have it. You have the cables going from dvr output==your dvd recorder input==take a 2nd RCA cable from the dvd recorder output to the tv input.

(An alternate is using coaxial cables from dvr to dvd recorder in the same input-output order)

**Directv has told me that the picture isn't going to be as clear in recording since the shows are copyrighted but if there is a S-video port by the input of your RCA cables (S-video substitues your yellow video cable; if it can be connected from dvd recorder to TV), it might be a little sharper, i'm theorizing. I'm hoping to buy a dvd recorder soon myself.

***MAKE SURE CHANNEL ON DVD RECORDER (IF ITS THE SAME AS VCR SETUP) IS THE SAME AS TV AND DVR.: "video" channel on tv is considered "av1, or av2 (if dvd recorder uses the same name on screen as my VCR) *******

I just successfully used this method to connect my vcr to my Directv, but unfortunately its a dinosaur mono vcr.

Hope I explained it well enough :-/

It starts where your last recording stops. In other words it will not "tape over" what you have already put on the disc. If you have DVD-RW discs, you can erase shows and then it will record back at the start of the disc. Otherwise, it can hold up to 6 one hour shows on the disc.

Question

Do you need TV remote to set up

I have a 10 year old TV and no longer have the remote. I have bought 4 other DVD recorders and when I got them home found out that you had to have the TV remote to do the set up. I had to return them for credit. Since I cannot read the instructions without buying the product (they are inside the box) I don't know if I will be able to do the set up on this one. Someone who has set it up or has a copy of the set up directions, please let me know if you need the TV remote to set it up.

Yes, you will need the remote to set this up. My advice is to buy a Universal remote for your TV and this should solve the problem. You can pick them up fairly cheap.
