Re: remote operation ( remote will not activate vcr )
Sounds dumb, but had the same problem. I removed the batteries and double-checked that I had placed them in their respective slots correctly. If in doubt, use a completely NEW set of bats. Use the best bats you can afford. Also make sure you are pointing/aiming at the VCR sensor straight on; possibly the front of your VCR case is dusty/dirty? Just lightly dust off. No detergents. Good luck.

Since the cable is connected to the VCR and from there to the TV. The TV should be tune to channel 3 or 4. Using this connection, the VCR tuner will be changing channels when is ON, if you want to change channels on the TV; the VCR should be on standby.

I finnaly found my VCR Manual, and I'm glad to share this info with you, because I was looking for the manual all
over the web and FOUND NOTHING!. Bye!
Try this..Run cable line into VCR in, cable from VCR out to box, then cable from box to TV..this might work...I have done this for YEARS and it is never failed. You can then watch and record 2 things at once.
I would suggest that you disconnect the VCR from any signal source. UNPLUG the VCR from the power source [a/c] for at least one hour, more if possible. Before you are ready to plug the machine into a/c attach an antenna to the antenna INPUT, the VCR output goes to input of tv. [ DON'T attach cable box, or any such machine to the input of VCR.] Plug vcr into outlet and turn ON. Place TV-VCR switch on TV. [no remote control??] Change the channel MANUALLY, one channel at a time. If you see tv stations as you change the channel [KEEP changing until you have reached the " end of the line " of broadcast channels.] then you are good.Connecting the vcr to a cable box[ANY KIND!] you can only RECORD through the vcr what you watch on cable.
The typical hookup is cable/satellite box output to VCR antenna/RF input, then VCR antenna/RF output to television input. Since you are able to watch pre-recorded tapes, the latter is already correct. There are other ways to connect, using the audio/video outputs of VCR to audio/video inputs of the TV. Older or low end TV sets may not have these connections.
If by chance you are using an outdoor antenna (not cable or satellite) then the antenna connects to VCR antenna/RF input and VCR output as above. You will also need to program the VCR into the stations- most late VCRs will scan for active channels, and program themselves to those channels.
I'm not sure of the capabilities of newer cable & sat boxes, but generally, you had to tune that box to the channel you wanted to record. The VCR is set to channel 3 or 4 depending on the output of the cable box.
Lastly, most VCRs of the last 10+ years require the remote to setup advanced functions, such as timed record, date & channel setup functions. The buttons on the VCR itself only do very basic functions, Stop/Play/Rewind/F-forward/Eject etc.
If you don't have the orig. remote, some universal remotes may be able to do advanced programming functions.
Actually George, You should read the supplied Operations manual. In that you will find a chapter for using the Remote as a Universal remote, and a list of codes will be give. Check out the code for Misubishi TVs and feed that.
