QUOTE=microladyusa;16949184]Just to let you know I just downloaded a copy of your manual and printed out Pages 6,7, and 28 so I can see what you are looking at on your Panasonic. Print out what I last posted to you and also kjbawc's post and answer my question about just the TV and Panasonic and how you use them now (without the VHS copy subject).
I see by your manual that you would not find the Presidian picture by using your channel up/down like other recorders can do. For you , by connecting the Presidian as above to the Panasonic IN1 3 jacks, you would see the Presidian picture on the Panasonic by using your remote control and pressing Input Select button and choosing IN1 as the input selected.
But first is to get your Presidian connected to your Panasonic with the 3 jacks. yellow, red, white, and the VF for the yellow as I described in my last reply.
I would like to know if your Panasonic and TV connections are the same as they were before the Presidian came into the picture. Also do you record and play off the Panasonic VCR and the Panasonic DVDRecorder? Or do you only use the DVDR? Do you record off TV with either or both recorders? Just want to make sure you have the setup okay to do all you want to do.
See if the above printouts help you and then see what questions you have. Keep posting. It can be done.[/quote]
Hi, I currently have the TV and Panasonic Recorder hooked up together. I return to this hook up when I fail at adding the Presiden combo player.
I have programed the Panny recorder to do a scheduled taping during the day to DVD. It did work, although that's as far as I have ventured with it. I am learning to walk before I can crawl here. (sorry)
I do at times use the VHS part of the panny, but want to phase that out with the back ups to dvd. I mainly use the DVDR at this point for taping tv shows and playing dvd movies. I plan to only use the Presidian to make back up copies, in which I will draw myself a 'road map' to how everything is connected once I have a working 3some. I do plan to remove the Presidian when I am not making copies and follow the 'road map' to put it back to the way it is now. (space is too limited to leave all three units hooked up together all the time.)
Here is my current hook up between the TV and Panasonic:
Front of TV= y/w/r jacks going to the back of the Panasonic in the DVD/VHS Common Out y/w/r jacks
Back of TV= r/w jacks to back of Panasonic r/w DVD Priority Out.
Back of TV= S-Video to back of Panasonic S-Video Priority Out.
Back of TV= Coaxial Cable (RF) to back of Panasonic RF Out.
Cable from wall to Panasonic RF In
You are very kind to go the extra mile to print out the manual in efforts to get me through this. I am trying not to get discourged and return the VFilter
out of DEFEAT on my end.
With everyone's help and kindness here, which is going the extra mile, I am hanging in there to try and get this accomplished. When I do...... I'd like
to buy everyone some drinks!!
