Cannot view tv program while recording on VCR
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, pls set the Samsung LCD TV to the Source selection as if watching a playback evgen if you are going to do a recording.
If that does not work, pls postback manner of connection (cabling) from Cox digital cable system to Philips DVD/VCR to Samsung LCD TV LN-T3253HX/XAA .
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
