Re: Recording from AV
Cheaper VCRs will automatically switch to using the AV inputs if a
cable is phyisically plugged in. Better units give the user the
option of leaving the cables plugged in all the time but you then have
to either flip a switch or go into the onscreen menu to select this
input. (May be called A/V, or AUX, VIDEO, or even a high channel
number like 99)

If the TV has a scart socket and the vcr also, you can connect it that way, with a scart lead. Then all you need do is press the channel button on the VCR till it reads AV. There may be more than one AV socket so use the one with the connection of the scart lead, it should say on the scart socket what it is. IE: AV1. All you need do is set the channel on the TV you want to record, the press record.
You won't be able to watch another channel though while recording.
Some TV's with multi scart have options for AV settings or recording from the TV, so check these out.
Consider buying a universal remote.
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.
You have to buy first a VHS player that can play NTSC, might not be available locally in Ireland so you have to probably buy online (US).
The DVD recorder is fairly comnon nowadays and all of them are capable of recording and playing NTSC and PAL. You can then connect the AV out of VHS player to the AV In of the recorder.
Or you can use a VHS-DVD combi. You can google in UK, here is an example:
Toshiba RD-XV45, according to the specs, it can play NTSC on the VHS and you can record to DVD on any format that yoou want
