Question about Televison & Video
We can't get our VCR to record from our new flat screen tv without going through the DTV converter box, but when we go through the converter box we get fewer channels from our antenna. Planning to buy a new antenna with an AMP and hope to improve the signals, but also want to record shows on the VCR, directly from the TV if possible.
Might I suggest getting a TIVO or ROMEO as if you get a referb unit from weaknees you get livetime updates on your local channels.

Unfortunately, no. The VCR only has the older analog tuner and can't get digital channels. You'd need a converter box connected to the VCR for those.

SOURCE: DTV Converter hookup
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.

Use only one box.
Connection should be:::Video Source(cable, antenne) connected to converter box:::::Converter box connected to VCR:::VCR connected to TV.
Try this connection and let me know how it goes.
Please rate this solution.
