TV/VCR/Stereo Troubleshooting/Panasonic 50" HD Plasma TV


Model # HD50PX80U, about 4 or 5 years old.  How to hook up a dvd recorder to this tv so I can record programs off my  outside antenna.  Is there an output terminal that goes from the set to the dvd recorder.  I know there is a tuner on this set because I can watch many stations on it using my outside antenna.  Please advise.  Some have told me this can't be done, but I can't belive this.  Please help me with this problem.  Thanks, JFK>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I have no idea which dvd recorder you have but with this Panasonic model it shows you how you can do it easily.

The tv you have has analog stereo audio out and composite video out with standard RCA jacks. So,  you will need rca cables to connect to your dvd recorder.

Now, you must check your dvd recorder for analog audio and composite video inputs.

Hope this helps.
