Question about Samsung VR8460 VHS/S-VHS playback VCR
Just got digital cable and want to record on VHS. The installer said to keep tv on channel 3, the recorder on channel 3 and the digital box on the channel you want recorded. Do I have to leave all 3 devices turned on?
You do not need to leave the TV on. To get the clearest picture you should connect the AV cables (yellow, white, red) from the cable box to the VCR, and from the VCR to the TV. There should be a setting on both the TV and the VCR to set the input to VIDEO so you don't have to use channel 3. You can shut the TV off while recording if you want. Also be careful because if you use the channel guide or info button while recording, it will show up on the tape.
