Everything was working fine w/my VCR, until we went with the Dish satellite. Now I can't get my VCR to work at all. I've tried following the diagrams found on the internet, but nothing works. My VCR is a Samsung and the Dish Network has a signal splitter because we have two TVs working off the satellite dish. The first TV is in the master bedroom and the second is in the living room. I was hoping someone could tell me what needs to be hooked up where? If you need to see a diagram of the way it's hooked up, I can always put up a link to the photo I took of it. I would deeply appreciate it. TIA!
Hi Tecky: Can't even begin to guess why your VCR is turning off after 20 minutes. About the only suggestion I can give you, is that you go to the place where you bought your VCR and ask them why it is doing that. Or go to the brand your VCR is eg; www.sony.com and look to see if they have online manuals there. I'm sorry I can't be of anymore help.
Wayne: Turn your TV on. On the recorder remote control, go to Menu > Setup > there you'll see "Channel." It's about the third or fourth one down on the list. Click the arrow and that's where you can change your channel back to 3.
