Question about Emerson EWV603 VHS VCR
I have tried hooking up my DTV converter box and VCR to my analog TV in accordance with the accepted method (ie: attenna to converter box, converter box to VCR, VCR to TV). In this configuration I can play tapes on the VCR, but it will not record. The TV is set on channel 3. I have also tried recording putting the converter signal into the TV and the TV output to the VCR with no better luck. Suggestions?
Is it possible to record TV programming on a VCR when using a DTV converter?
h1 = document.getElementById("title").getElementsByTagName("h1");h1.innerHTML = widont(h1.innerHTML);
I had the same problem and found this answer that worked for me. Hope this does the trick for you.
Simple stated, your VCR must be set to channel 3 also. Check it out.
Disadvantage of DTV Converter: You will lose the ability to watch one program and record another with the DTV converter. Sorry for the bad news.
The reason is the tuner. The VCR tuner is useless with digital except for recognizing channel 3. The digital converter is a single tuner item so it only receives one station at a time.
