Question about Televison & Video
I have connected my jvc vcr to my cable and tv. TV is working, cable is working, VCR will record the program currently playing. My problem is -- I cannot view the TV channels through the VCR, which means that I cannot program the VCR to record at another time. This VCR, although old, has worked just fine previously. Since we moved the TV from downstairs to upstairs we had to disconnect everything and apparently something is wrong in the connections somewhere although everything looks to be just fine. What am I missing? I am going CRAZY here.

The cable should be connected to the antenna in jack of the VCR. The out to tv jack should then be connected to the antenna jack of the tv. When the VCR is in "vcr" mode (tv/vcr button) you should see it when the TV is tuned to the output channel of the VCR (usually ch3 or ch4).

I guess you are using the cable TV feed looped through the VCR to the TV set.
Make sure you did not confuse the in and out loop of the VCR.
In the VCR menu, or on the remote there is usually a button called TV/VCR (Video). Make sure it is in the TV mode to watch the cable. In the VCR (Video) mode, the TV must be on the VCR's designated channel to watch the VCR, and the VCR tuner is used to watch the cable channels.
