Recording problem on VCR

Daily I have to record on the VCR for security reasons. I am recording things outside with a Swann Nighthawk system. I have the tape set to SLP for 9hrs of recording, but after 3hrs the whole VCR shuts down. When replaying the video it comes to a point where it says on the screen - Unreadable Signal - and I am assuming this is when the system shuts down. After the Unreadable Signal message the tape shows stuff that I have previously recorded. What could be making the system shut down?

I have a Zenith DVD/VCR and I am recording a tape


unless the security camera has a setting for recording the date stamp you probably can't. The camera probably has a setup tab to enable embedding the date stamp on the video.

Vcr timed recordings


I'd be pretty certain that every VCR made these days (and of the last 10-15+ years) can be set to do a timed recording. They can be set for a one time recording, weekly or daily record. Whether used with a cable/satellite box, or outside antenna, you must ensure proper hookup. I'm not real familiar with recent cable/sat receiver boxes, but older ones had to be set to the channel you wanted to record, as the VCR will only see that channel. On older cable (no cable box) & outdoor antenna systems, a VCR could tune in and record any channel, while you watched another one. Anyway, check the capability of the cable/sat box, and follow suggested hookup. You will likely need to set the box to the channel you want to record before you retire for the night.
