connecting comcast to office TV via VCR

We have an old TV in our office and it has a VCR attached. The Comcast guy originally connected the cable to TV through the VCR. We had to disconnect the VCR and never was able to reestablish comcast TV connection, even trying this link:

Can someone please help us? Comcast charges 75.00 to come out and rehook it up and i am sure it will take 5 minutes.

Thanks!!

Re: connecting comcast to office TV via VCR

Hello naaf,

 

Although Business Class TV does not provide or support DVRs, it is quite possible to use and CD or VHS (CDVHS) device connected either directl or indirectly. Please follow the following for you interconnectivty:

Direct Interconnect : Connect the coax cable line in directly to the cable box input receptable. Then connect the cable box output coax cable to the CDVHS device's cable input receptable. Then connect the CDVHS devices output coax receptable cable to the input of the TV's coax cable input receptable. Make sure both your CDVHS and TV (using the devices remote controls) are on device(s) specific channel 3 or 4, solely dependent order your cable box setting or regional area channel setting. Lastly, make sure your TV display is on the cable input selection menu item. Then make sure power is on and correctly applied to the cable box, CDVHS, and TV and your picture should be on and you should be able to change channels using the Comcast TV remote pointed at your cable box.

 

Indirect Interconnect: Connect the coax cable line in directly to the cable box input receptable.  Then connect the cable box output coax cable to the TV coax input receptable. If you TV has video composite, rca, HDMI, etc. inputs, then follow your CDVHS device's connection instructions to get this connected to your TV correctly. This indirect connection method always requires you TV to have to be selected to the correct video display. For instance, Video 1 could be your cable antennea input, Video 2 could be your RCA jacks, Video 3 could be your video composite, etc. So, it will be necessary to always make sure the correct video display to be set (or connected) for recording or playing of the TV picture.

 

Hope this helps you out.
