First, whether or not you can do this will depend on cable box useage, and how the VCR is hooked up. In the earlier days of cable TV, & off-air reception, this was a simple task. If you have a satellite receiver box or cable box which is used to tune the channel, rather than using the TV itself or the VCR tuner, then recording one channel while watching another may not be possible. While I don't know the capabilities of newer sat/cable boxes, older ones sent just one signal out to the external equipment (TV etc.) That one signal (channel) is all that is available. If you received a manual with the sat/cable box, see if it says anything about this issue. That being said- if you don't use a sat/cable box, but instead use your TV or VCR to select the channel you are watching, then assuming the VCR is hooked up inline with the TV, just setting the VCR/TV option to TV will pass all channels through to the TV, and you can then use the TV to select whatever channel wished, while the VCR is recording something else. Hopefully I haven't confused you. If another contributor has some additional info on the capabilities of sat/cable boxes of today, please read their contribution.

Hi, This sounds like a mechanical problem. The tape is not fully extended over the video head or the two arms spreading the tape over the path is not fully extending. This is normally caused by a small belt slipping. The belt couples a small motor (near the right side of the head) and a pulley/gear combo that drives the spreading arm along its path taking the tape with it. It's a tight squeeze but if you can manage to extract the belt and replace it, then this should do the trick. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. good luck and kind regards.

By chance is there a menu option for resetting the timed record previously entered? you might also do a google search using your model number. There are suppliers out there specializing in original remote boxes.

this is a tracking problem...try cleaning the entire tape path with alcohol swabs (open top cover), especially the pinch roller

Your GE URC could be defective but in some cases A URC does not handle all functions of the original remote control. Worst case: only controls on-off.

Closed captioning is controlled from your satellite or cable box remote, NOT your television remote. It is not a function of the television.

Use code search on your GE URC to find something that works. If a search through all codes stored in the URC fails, try a different one.
