Question about Toshiba Televison & Video
I have just a cable cord from the wall (no separate cable box) that is plugged into the back of the TV. The Toshiba VCR/DVD unit is working fine playing but it won't record anything when the TV show is on. The tape shows no signal.
How do I fix this?
The proper hookup is antenna or cable into the VCR RF/antenna input, then VCR RF/antenna output to the TV RF input. The hookup you describe means no signal is getting to the VCR.
With some TVs, there can be Video and audio output jacks which can be hooked to the video and audio jacks of the VCR. However this would likely mean you could only record the channel being watched, and, the TV would have to be on.
