vcr does not work with dtv converter pls help

idahoslimDecember 9, 2008

I have tried everything and my RCA converter does not work with my VCR. I have hooked it up and it will not record programed shows while I am at work. I set it to record at 3pm on channel 2 and at 4pm on channel 6 and it just records static because the converter box has to be on channel 3 to show the DTV...I hate this...

Does anyone have a clue how to make this work? I even tried using 2 converter boxes and still it will not record programed shows. It works fine if I set the Converter box to the station I want to record and hit the record button but why do I need that? If I am at home I will simply watch the show, I need to record different times and channels when I am away from home. Please Help my gardner friends I am pulling out my hair with this...


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

If the converter is connected to the VCR, you can't change the channels with the VCR.

You'll eventually need a VCR with a built-in HD tuner if you want the VCR to change channels.

You can always use the old VCR to watch any tapes already recorded.
