Question about JVC HR-J692U S-VHS VCR
I have a JVC (HR J692U) VCR. Since my TV is analog, I had to purchase a converter box to get ready for the transition in February. I have my antenna hooked to the converter box, then into the VCR and then into the TV.
Of course, with three remotes now, it is even more confusing. After much trial and error, I was able to do the following: I have the TV set to channel 3, turn on the converter box and choose one of the stations with a signal, such as 4-2. I set my VCR to channel 3 and I was able to record the 4-2 station.
How will I be able to watch one station and record another at the same time?
You only have three choices that I know of. The first two are a bit expensive though. 1) Buy a digital TV, then you could split your antenna cable to the TV and Converter box. Then use the converter box as the tuner for the VCR. 2) Buy a digital VCRand do the same thing using the converter box as the TV's tuner. or 3) Get a second Converter box and split the incoming cable between the two, using one for the TV and the other for the VCR. If you use any of these ideas, remember that You need to not have the VCR and the "new" tuner for the TV set to play on the same TV channel, and that you switch teh VCR out of VCR mode with the TV/VCR button, so that you get a clear signal on the other channel. If anyone has an easier solution, I too would like to know about it, seeing as I am in the same position and would like to avoid this problem as well.
