Question about Televison & Video
I just had my cable box changed and to watch cable I need to use Video 1 on my tv. I tried to tape some tv shows on using the new box, keeping the channel on 3. I am getting no results at all.
Hi, Since your "new cable box" is directly connected to your TV via the A/V (Video 1), it is not attached in anyway to the VCR, hence the VCR is not receiving any "tv shows." What you need to do is remove the A/V connection of the new cable box and put them into the A/V INput of your VCR. You may then continue using Ch 3 on your TV to watch your VCR and also be able to record tv shows. The only drawback is that the VCR must also be powered on to watch tv shows. It is also possible to use the A/V OUTput of the VCR and connect them to the TV A/V INput (where the cable box used to be connected). Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
