See this post for possible answer.
I would appreciate some help/recommendations with the following problem. I have a new Samsung digital T. V. set that is yet to be recognized by an older magnavox VCR. The T. V. is connected to a cable. I place a VHS tape in the VCR. The VCR power will come on. The VCR shows all appropriate lights come on on the VCR. I press PLAY on the remote control. All I see on the new T. V. screen are a bunch of bumble bees. Thank you.
