Question about Televison & Video
I just got this machine and can't set up the recording correctly. I've tried all the hook-ups suggested in the manual. I am using the A/V hookup with cable box with many scrambled channels.
I hit the preset and can record, but the playback is fuzzy and it looks like when the monitor is set to tv instead of video. The machine plays pre-recorded tapes fine and broadcast/cable is fine.
This is a VHS VCR and should be like any standard vcr to hookup. Did you obtain this VCR recently; and was it used? What are you calling the 'monitor'? Is it a standard TV. Since you said pre-recorded tapes work OK, I think your cable connections are fine. With that in mind, if this is a used VCR, I think your 'recording/playback' heads need to be cleaned. This is not a big deal to someone who can look inside with some competence if they are careful. But the heads are very delicate and can be damaged quite easily. If you want to give it a try or discuss this in more detail, I can guide you (but no guarantees).

SOURCE: DTV Converter hookup
Is it possible to record TV programming on a VCR when using a DTV converter?
h1 = document.getElementById("title").getElementsByTagName("h1");h1.innerHTML = widont(h1.innerHTML);
I had the same problem and found this answer that worked for me. Hope this does the trick for you.
Simple stated, your VCR must be set to channel 3 also. Check it out.
Disadvantage of DTV Converter: You will lose the ability to watch one program and record another with the DTV converter. Sorry for the bad news.
The reason is the tuner. The VCR tuner is useless with digital except for recognizing channel 3. The digital converter is a single tuner item so it only receives one station at a time.

SOURCE: Cannot record VCR thru Cable Box
make sure that the cable runs first through the cable box then through the VCR then to the TV.
if you know how to set timers on your cable box (if you have that option), set those in addition to your VCR timer. If you don't have that feature or are not sure, you will, unfortunately, have to keep the cable box on a certain channel before you record.
hope this helps!!
