Question about Sony DVDirect VRD-MC3 DVD Recorder
I have audio cables set up correctly. I have tried different VHS players, different VHS tapes, and different cables, however, I cannot get the sound to record onto the DVD. I was able to previously, however, I noticed in the middle of one of my recorded DVD's, the sound just stopped. After that, I have not been able to record the sound from a VHS no matter what I have changed. I have only recorded a few VHS tapes, so it has hardly been used to record VHS tapes. It will record the sound from my Sony Handycam.

I had a similar no audio issue when using the I-Link connector and 8mm camcorder. I found that if i selected "Manual" rather than "Automatic" (copy everything) that I got good audio as well as video.
I have tried using a later model Sony miniDV camcorder with A to D passthrough from my 8mm Sony camcorder that I get better Video color using RCA cables directly from the 8mm Camcorder but better audio from the I-Link passthrough above.

I have the same problem currently. I have successfully recorded to the Sony CM5 in the past from my DVR, but no longer can. I have Comcast and wonder if they have changed the DVR firmware and blocked output. Also some broadcasts have something in the signal to stop recording. I got half of my program done, and can't record the rest on DVD. I will try to DVR local news, then record to the Sony, to see if it's a signal issue or something with the Sony. I haven't tried to record from a VCR.

Is it possible the VHS you're trying to copy is copy-protected? Apparently, the MC6 displays "waiting for signal" when you're attempting to copy a copy-protected (commercial) video. I had success converting my own homemade VHS tapes. I just bought my MC6, and thought I'd pass along some tips I got from others: You know you're recording when a red ring around the large Record button lights up and it actually says "recording" on screen, and adjust HQ to SP to get 2-plus hours of video on the DVD.

If the VHS player has a scart socket you can connect it to the Sony using one of these converting connects.
