Question about Televison & Video
Your VCR will record from the cable box as long as the coax cable coming out from the wall outlet goes into the VCR's IN jack, and the coax cable of its OUT jack goes into the VCR's IN jack. Your VCR then should have another coax cable coming out of its OUT jack into the back of the TV.
Both the VCR and TV have to be set to one of two channels: 3 or 4, and the output from the cable box should also be set to output on this frequency/channel.
In order to record any program, now you have two choices: Set the start and stop times on two devices: the VCR and the cable box; the easiest choice is to leave the cable box on all the time, and only set the VCR timer.
One last thing: In order to switch channels, you will have to use the cable box's remote, if you're watching TV from the cable box.
There are certain cable boxes that bypass the TV signal when they are turned off. In these cases, you may watch TV using the TV's remote control. You have to check your cable boxe's user's manual.

When you have a cable box connected to your VCR, you will not set your timer to tune in the specific channel that you want to tape from. What you 'll have to do is either
1) If your box is connected to your VCR via 1 piece of the cable you will have to set your timer to go to either channel 3 or 4. If you look on the back of the cable box there should be a small switch that is either set to 3 or 4. Leave your cable box on and set on the channel you want to record.
2) If your cable box is connected to your VCR via 3 RCA cords, one red, one white, and one yellow, you would have to set your timer to record from LINE IN 1 if that is the connection used; LINE IN 2 would be chosen if that is setup. What you do then is set your cable box to whatever channel you want to tape from and leave it there.
If you have your manual handy, pages 39-40 are the ones you want to check. If you don't have have your manual, here is a link to download it:
