Question about Sanyo DVW-5000 DVD Player/VCR
We cannot record to the VCR from the TV when the TV is off--even though we have programmed the VCR to record. It will record when the TV is on--but not when it is off.
We are using FIOS, cable going from FIOS box to VCR, Cable from VCR to TV.
I figured out my solution.
I had to disconnect my HDMI connection, and use the component setup for receiving the HD signal from the cable box. Upon using this connection, I am now able to record a channel even when the TV is off.

Your FIOS box is typically a Motorola Digital Cable Tuner. In order to record from the VCR your FISO will have control of the tuner, not the vcr. If your FIOS has two video outputs on it for video (av connections), one should be plugged into you tv set and the other should be plugged into the VCR input. Your cable tuner will have to be set for the channel you wish to record ahead of time while the VCR tuner has to be set to record the line input at whatever time you wish to record. If your FISO has one video output line (av connections), your VCR has to be set to channel 3 when you record (provided that is the channel your FISO box is set for when viewing TV over the coax cable) and you will have to attach the coaxial output from the FISO into the coax input of your VCR.
The only way around this is to get a splitter and split the coax line so that the FIOS is connected to the coax as it is now and the VCR is connected to a seperate line using the coax input, however using this configuration will prevent you from recording digital channels. If you have a cable ready VCR, it will probably only recognize channels up to 150.
If you really want to get it to record digital channels without the hassles find out if Verizon has a FISO box with DVR to it or connect a Tivo to your FISO. Tivo will tune the FSIO when it records and it's very user friendly to use.
