Hi. Hoping someone can help! I have made some attempts already and looked at similar posts, but I haven’t found/don’t think I see solution yet. I just bought a smart TV. (Samsung UHD 4k.) I use an antenna, so since I don’t subscribe to cable or anything, I am trying to get my VCR (Panasonic, quite old…. from maybe 2003) connected so that I can continue to record (as I did w/my previous tube TV). The most success I’ve had was hooking the antenna up to the VCR and then connecting the VCR to the TV (which I think is what I was doing w/my old TV). I could play something previously recorded (although the volume was barely audible, even when turned up to the max), but I could not get it to record something new. (I tried to record something new, but when playing back what I had “recorded,” there was a message on the screen that read, “No signal. AV. Check the cable connections and the setting of your source device. Press SOURCE on your remote to select connected source device.” After this fail, I tried two more things. #1). a splitter. (I didn’t think this would work, but the Radio Shack employee thought it would. Anyway, it indeed did not solve my problem (although I got more channels, b/c routing the antenna thru the VCR is I guess too far for the signal to travel…plugging the antenna into the splitter was much better). So then onto #2). an RF modulator (video converter). This did not work at all though. When I had it plugged in and then sent chose the “source” for the VCR, the message on the screen was, “There’s no signal or it isn’t strong enough. Check the source connection.” One other note: in this set up (using the RF modulator), there was a cord that I was not able to connect to anything b/c there was no spot for it to go into the modulator device. I don’t know the proper terminology, but both ends of the cord are round, and it just gets pushed/pulled in/out (rather than needing to screw it in/out, like a coax cable). (So the only connection from the VCR to the modulator was the audio video cable.). ****So all of that being said, does anyone know of any solution to get the VCR connected to my new TV so that it is able to play back tapes AND record again?? Or is the problem maybe that the TV is specifically 4k/UHD?? Maybe it’s just that I need a specific type of modulator/converter…??? I understand that I can buy a TiVo (sale price of $350…ugh!) that does not require a monthly subscription/fee, and so thus there is something out there that will allow me to record shows without needing to sign up for cable or whatever, BUT if there is a way to make the VCR work again, that is totally my preference. Or if someone knows w/out a doubt that there is no device/hardware to enable this, that would also be helpful (albeit disappointing) to hear. THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ANYONE THAT IS ABLE TO HELP!!
