LVW 5005 Tuner Help Please

It seems the tuner has crapped out. All I get is snow now, when I try to record programs (satellite), whereas before it was fine. I’ve read about using the vcr tuner? I don’t currently have a vcr set up. Can someone explain, please?

If the tuner in the 5005 is bad just don’t use it, connect video and L/R audio cables from a HiFi VCR to the rear inputs of the 5005 (and record in stereo as the tuner in the 5005 is mono).

Ok, sounds good. Thanks for your help!

Many Set Top Boxes have AV outputs along with RF output.
