Well LG makes this unless you can find a firmware up then you must order some DvD-RW with CPRM this allows you to copy your shows once then recording over them.I got this from LG.It's a common firmware problem that started when digital signals got sent with copy right protections.

Hi,if your vcr is an analog machine then you will not get a signal.If you have a seperate digital box then you can connect this via a scart lead to av2 on the vcr.Best thing though is to buy a digital dvd recorder.hope this is of some help.jamie
do not feel bad.......all DVD recorders can not record those channels nor any Disney kid tapes........as you say you can record to VHS (thats it) as of the last season of the Sopranos HBO put that electronic copyright in place...trust me every channel follow once DVD recorders became hot......there was a gadget not sure if its still on the market (Sima copy master is what I use for that last season) I dont use it any more, cant find it really.......
Some program have copy protection or your installations cable and setup try to set lower resolutions and make sure you see the picture on TV before record
Or tell me how are your installation from which device to where
I may able to help you
As long as you've got the DVD recorder set to the correct "channel" I can't see why it won't work. Why don't you just try it out on a DVD-RW first ? Use RCA cables from the VCR "OUT", to the DVD recorders "IN" sockets and you'll be okay. If for some unknown reason it doesn't copy you haven't used a good disc. Probably won't copy anything with Macrovision(or other copy protection) though.
connect the RF lead from the wall to your cable box then out from that to your dvd then out from your dvd to your tv. now connect a scart lead from the cable box to AV 2 on the DVD then connect AV 1 on the DVD to your TV if you have a second scart on your tv connect that to the cable box. NOW on the DVD select AV2 now whatever is on the cable box will be recorded onto DVD/VCR. Put the DVD recorder into VCR mode and set it to auto tune all the Digital Video Broadcasts. You cannot physically tune the cable boxes own channels into the DVD via RF it has to be via a scart.
Are you using the cable connectors to go into the VCR, and then from the VCR to the TV?
If so, turn the VCR on. Put the TV on channel 3 or 4 (depending on
which one you have it set to. If you are unsure, try both channels one
at a time) Press the VCR/DVD button so the display on the VCR says VCR
(not DVD). Now, you should be able to change the channel with your VCR
remote control. If not, you have a problem with your cables. Make sure
your cable from the wall goes to RF IN on your VCR. The RF Out on the
VCR should go to your TV ANT In or TV RF In.
If you have successfully gotten your TV to display the TV station shown
on the front of your VCR, then all you have to do is put in a tape,
select the channel you want to record and press the record button.
If you want to watch another channel while you're recording, press the
TV/VCR button on the VCR remote, then use your TV remote to change
When you want to stop recording, press the stop button, put the TV back
onto channel 3 or 4 (depending on what you have it set to) and press
the TV/VCR button on your VCR again. From here you can rewind and view
This unit will not record certain types of TV and no copy-protected VHS and it doesn't tell you when you have those situations--and it doesn't come up with an error message that tells you what you are doing wrong. First step is to be sure that your source material is not copy-protected.
The DRC8285N model is a great little machine, however, it will only
record to DVD+R 8x disks maximum. If you are trying to record to a 16x,
you will not be successful. See page 2 of your manual, and RCA service
confirmed it. You can use 2.4x, 4x and 8x only. That eliminates the
newer 16x format.
