Okay, I am one of those who is having a really hard time with the new technology! I have a digital Samsung flat screen TV with only the over the air antenna. I had a JVC VCR?DVD HDMI combo that allowed me to record my TV shows. Sad to say it's history. I purchased a used Sanyo combo without HDMI but it does not allow me to do that. I am not able to have the vcr on and watch TV at the same time. It's either one or the other. Are we hooking it up wrong or do I need to buy a certain type of VCR/DVD combo? Please help!!
My 1st time buying of an HDTV is growing complicated. Please keep in mind cost is an issue.
1. I want a new tv so I can unsubscribe to cable and because new tvs are cooler than my flat screen big-**** tube tv
2. But I still record with a VCR and play DVDS on dvd player
If I buy a new tv, is it possible to *record* with a VCR and hook-up a dvd player?
B. If I keep my analog tv (without cable or satellite):
1. Can I use a digital converter box with the analog tv, dvd player AND *record* on my VCR? If so, what is the hook-up?
2. Do I have to buy/use a DVR/VHS recorder without a digital converter box and use an antenna (to get reception and still record tv shows)?
I hope this is clear. If not, please ask and I'll try to clarify. Any help is appreciated.
