    Hello all:

    Was wondering if anyone had a USER manual for the above model... I was given
    one which eats tapes... I don't really need another VCR but I DO need an
    input-switching RF modulator to run my DVD player to an old set with type F
    connector.

    All of the functions on the remote appear to work, but for the life of me I
    cannot figure out how to switch from the coax cable/antenna input to the RCA
    audio/video inputs on the back.

    According to the JVC website, this model simply does not exist although
    there are plenty of online stores willing to sell me a replacement remote
    for it...

    Thanks

    Dave

    If RF modulation is your objective, a tape eating VCR at a second hand
    store is almost free. JVC rca function is sometimes label AUX instead
    of line. Search the JVC sight by knocking of one letter or number at a
    time, not easy site to navigate.

    There is nothing in any of the on-screen menus which refers to input
    selection... and yes, I tried searching JVC minus a letter, came up with
    HR-J200A which is a a completely different unit, karaoke in fact!
     
  4. You've probably tried this but...


    Change the VCR's tuner to channel 2 then press the channel down button.
    That works on many VCRs.

    I had a vcr and for the life of me, I could not find the EP/SP
    settings. So I bought the original factory remote ( the one that ships
    with the vcr) and still no luck, many months later I just press the
    remote button labled audio by accident and menu came up with ep/sp
    choises, The point is to try all functions no matter how remote (no
    pun intended) the chances it might be what you need.

    By the way if you have those older handy cams, they come with a little
    rf modulater for rca audio and vidio to coax. All you need is a 5v DC
    source and the tip is positive on the jack.

    No, I hadn't tried that. And it worked. Thanks much.
