just got a new dvd recorder… we have a digital cable box on top of the tv. now, what i want to do is connect the dvd recorder, tv and a vcr so that we can tape directly off the tv, as well as be able to put a vhs tape (with stuff already on it) in the vcr and record onto a blank dvd what is on that tape. i’m thinking that the digital box needs to go to the dvd recorder first, then the dvd recorder to the vcr and then the TV??? not sure. any help would be appreciated. thanks.
Anything you want to record to the DVD must be hooked up before DVD recorder. I would hook up digital box, then VCR, then DVD recorder and then to TV. Hope this helps. Let us know how you make out and happy recording.
