You don't really say what make or model is the TV or VCR. However if you have a TV with a scart socket you can get a scart lead and connect the VCR via that. If the VCR has two scarts connect it via AV1 sometimes black whereas the other might be blue. If the TV has more than one you will have to try each one, unless it says VCR on the scart socket, till you get the best picture.
I don't think the VCR has a digital tunner so you will need a second box for that unless the box to your TV has a twin digital tunners. If the switchover has taken place in your area the VCR will not have a picture to record. Without knowing how you have all 3 connected I can't tell you much more.
You'll need a computer with Firewire, aka IEEE1394. These cables don't have an end that is specifically computer or VCR ends, but they have an A for Alpha and a B size. A style connectors are the larger ones shown in the picture below.
After the cable is connected you'll need an editing program on the computer. Windows computers can use Windows Movie Maker, Mac Can use iMovie. Once connected you'll use the capture feature to get the video onto the computer.
I can think of only these reasons for your problem. 1. the VCR is not Recording a Signal. 2. Perhaps you have not selected TUNER as the Signal Input If this the case,you will get a screen with a lot of 'Snow' .
Better check your VCR setup first, before calling Technician to have a look at the Recording Circuits.
I change my PC to new windows vista and the new PC don't recognize any VCR throw firewire, but the machine recognize my canon LG-2 by firewire. I need something special like a special driver to run my JVC's BR-DV3000 & BR-HD50 for capture video

There are so many different ways of hooking up video components
nowadays that you shouldn't feel bad about having this trouble.
Can you describe how you have the cables connected and what input on
the TV is selected?
