I am having an unusual problem with our 2 new digital VCRs (LG and JVC). All of a sudden, the picture will freeze and the voice will continue normally (LG). Or (JVC) both the picture and sound will stop (picture freeze, no sound). These were recorded on digital televisions. I managed to get the LG working again by unplugging it from the power source and then turning it on again. I thought to do this because when I pressed the eject button, the machine didn't respond. However, the JVC did not have a machine freezing up problem.
I read an article and I think it was from Thrifty Fun (not sure tho) that you need a co-axial splitter ( but not broadband) to hook-up your vcr. Hope this helps.
Hi Holly : )
Recording can be frustrating. We've had multiple problems lately (company replaced machinery THREE time. We found out recently that some signals are being encrypted to make recording an entire show impossible. This seems to be random. Some stations do more of this than others.
My suggestion is to keep a log of what works and what doesn't. You might find a pattern.
