Sounds like it's wired up wrong...try this:
take cable line to VCR in, VCR out to cable/receiver box(if you have one) then box to sounds like the vcr is getting the channels from the box and not the will need to have the vcr scan the channels (round in the settings menu) You will also be able to watch and record 2 different things.

Doesn't give me the option to change the channel when timer recording

If you are recording something on the VCR, it won't let you change the channel. If not, you need to make sure the RC is set to the vcr in question (mine has VCR1 and VCR2)

You can set it up the way I've done for years...put cable line into VCR first, the VCR to then can watch and record 2 separate channels.

Panasonic NV SJ205 changing RF settings

Your VCR has input to record video-audio signal. Here is 2 options to record program in vcr.
1= You need to hook up video-audio cable at Monitor Out in TV and video-audio in at VCR. select Line-1 or Line-2 (where you hook up cable) in vcr and insert cassette with Record Tab intact, VCR is ready to record TV program. select desired channel on tv and hit record button of vcr, recording will start.
2= Plug RF antenna / cable wire in RF In of vcr and tune desired channel in vcr (get help of vcr's user manual for that) and push record button to start record directly in vcr.
Have further query, let me know please.

1. Is the VCR coming on in the timed mode and recording? Make an experiment- set up a timed record for just a few minutes in advance. Have a tape in the machine- then wait a few minutes & see if it indeed comes on and records. This should for sure help you diagnose your problem.

Note: When a timed record is set up, some VCRs must be turned off, or a particular button pushed to activate the timed record mode, where it will wait for the specified time and come on by itself..

2. Video source set correctly? If all you get is a blue screen, or a moment of snow, then the timed recording is happening, but there is no signal present.

Sounds like the VCR is not set on an "external source" but rather "tuner". I believe that will fix this problem...accordianman

Records media but playback has no audio.

Are you absolutely sure that it is receiving an audio signal?
What input are you using? Try recording using alternate inputs.
Audio part of a VCR is normally way more reliable than the video.
The exception is on high-end stereo types where they record the extra audio signals using the video head cylinder in which case it can easily be lost.

what do you mean? you can set it to record mon-fri or
weekly. you do that on the timer. if you want to record the whole 6 or 8 hour tape
just press record the tape will go off itself at end of tape some vcrs you can set manual timers by pressing record button
more than once and can set to record up to 6 or 8 hours .
if it don't do that just leave it on record it will fill up tape until end
but will stay on same channel.
timers are unreliable if u make just one mistake it might miss
the show.

Set a timed recording

Do you have your operation manual? It will tell you how to set up a timed recording. Recording options are set via the remote. Look for an option as "Scheduled recording" or similiar. Date, start & end time, channel, recording speed are all set. If you are missing your manual do a google search with your model number. A quick look at the Samsung website was not fruitful.
