Re: Record DVDs frrom Cable box DVR

Buy a recorder that records both +/-R and double layer disks.
I haven't seen a Comcast dvr but you should connect it to the svideo out port of the dvr to the svideo in of the recorder and the audio out to the audio in. If the Comcast doesn't have svideo use the video ports instead

Can I use my HR22-100 Directv DVR as a standalone DVR with Comcast cable

No, that DVR is made to record programs that come off the satellite dish only, it doesn't have any video inputs. If you want a DVR, your best bet is to get one from Comcast.

How do i hook-up my vcr to my cable dvr to record saved shows

In order to record from VCR to DVR You need to connect "VCR audio/video output RCA jacks " to" DVR 's Audio / Video Input RCA jacks.. ..
use either "RCA analog (red/white+ yellow ) " or "optic " cable.(any standard optical cable )..if exist .optic is the best way to connect it..Remember your VCR 's "OUT" goes into" IN "of DVR ..
pls also remember,wherever you connect your VCR on your DVR ,you should switch the source selector accordingly to correspond to the connection on the back...
Now you can record anything on DVR which played in VCR ..
Hope this helps!..if more help requires pls let me know.
Take care and please

Can't watch anyother shows while recording another

Check the back of the DVR to make sure BOTH cables from the dish are properly connected to the receiver. Make sure they are properly tightened. It sounds like one of them has come loose, because if the receiver only has one working cable coming in from the dish it can only do one thing at once- you can only record one show at a time with one cable. You can also go into the receiver's setup menu and run a system test, which will help you diagnose the issue.

Toshiba D-R410KU DVD recorder, How do I set it up with a regular TV and no cable box? I want to record regular TV shows and I receive only local station via Rabbit ears .

No offense intended, but...get a life and a new TV and a cable box with DVR...pre-record your shows and later record on Toshiba DVD recorder using HDMI cable, available at Fry's for $10. Also, you might still be able to do what you want if you are willing to read every word of every page of the user manual...been there done wouldn't work for me either until I did same...I know, only read the user manual as a last resort, so...

Coax out from box into cable in on VCR. Coax out from VCR to Cable in on TV. Set TV and VCR to ch 3. Put in blank tape. Start show on DVR and hit record on VCR. Hope that works for you.
