Re: how come my vcr a video 1 and video 2 cahnnel when it...
This is just a guess (since I can't find a photo of your model), but most VCRs with multiple video inputs have the 2nd input in the front panel of the unit, in order to easily plug in cameras, video games, etc without having to pull the unit out.

To answer your question;
You need to change the input(not channel) on your tv to video input.
There should be a button on your remote and/or tv called input.
Otherwise you should find it in the menu under"input source"
The best way to hook up your VCR is to use the AV jacks (Red, White, and yellow). Plug into AV1 or Video 1 on the back of the TV. Then, plug into Red, White, and Yellow output jack on the back of the VCR. After everything is hooked up, turn your TV channel to AV1 or Video 1 to watch from the VCR.
To record, you'll have to plug your cable box or satellite box to the AV inputs ( Red, White, and Yellow) in the back of the VCR. ( The only thing is it wouldn't be in HD )
u need a video audio cabel. on one end plug yellow into video, red (or white ) into audio for camcorder. on the vcr end. if the front of vcr has jacks. plug em in same way. then put vcr channel on av-1, video 1 or whatever, till whatevers on the camera shows up on screen. hope that helps.
I would strongly suggest connecting a plain, coaxial cable wire from your sat box to the the ANT IN of the VCR. then use another coaxial to run from the ANT OUT of the VCR to the TV. Then you can change your TV to channel 3 or 4 as appropriate.
If you have a newer digital satellite receiver, this setup may not work. In that case, use two sets of red/white/yellow cables - 1 set will run from the out of the satellite receiver to the audio, video IN of the VCR. The second set will run from the audio and video OUT of the VCR to your TV. Then change your television to Aux 1, aux2 or whatever channel that corresponds to the red/white yellow.
Your VCR has input to record video-audio signal. Here is 2 options to record program in vcr.
1= You need to hook up video-audio cable at Monitor Out in TV and video-audio in at VCR. select Line-1 or Line-2 (where you hook up cable) in vcr and insert cassette with Record Tab intact, VCR is ready to record TV program. select desired channel on tv and hit record button of vcr, recording will start.
2= Plug RF antenna / cable wire in RF In of vcr and tune desired channel in vcr (get help of vcr's user manual for that) and push record button to start record directly in vcr.
Have further query, let me know please.
You have to tell the vcr which input to record on. Instead of a channel try "Line 1" or "input 1" or "Video 1". you can get there by going to channel 01 and pressing channel down a few times. match whats written above the input jacks with what's on the screen.
It might depend on the type of input. VCR often use A/V or component cables. if you are using AV (red, white, yellow) make sure they are plugged into the right input. if plugging in to a component (white, red, green, blue, red) make sure the yellow plug goes into the green input. If plugging in component make sure your red wires are not backwards. There should be a white and red together (these are the audio) and a green blue red together (these are video)
