Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player
The Magnavox DV220MW9 VCR/DVD player does not have a TV tuner. It does not have an RF (antenna/cable) input or output.
It can not record directly from a cable.
In the past you could use a digital to analog converter to record cable digital TV to an analog VCR. But now (this is written in 2015), virtually all cable TV is now digital and scrambled, so even a D to A converter will not work.
Some cable cable companies have cable boxes that have analog composite output. You can connect an analog VCR to that signal. I used to have a Comcast cable box that had simultaneous HDMI, component and composite output. I would sent the HDMI output to an HD TV and the composite to a VCR.

I figure out how to set the vcr to record at a later time. BTW this is a new magnavox model dv220mw9/ser#024837394.
Purchased it on 9/ 10/08. I can play a vcr tape ok but cannot record another program. I connected the vcr by using the cables that came with the vcr from the vcr to the tv.
Any thoughts. Thanks

Your model is "tuner free" that means it does not have the RF screw in connector. Buy one that has a tuner, preferably both ATSC(USA digital) and NTSC(USA analog)
