Before you use the link here. If I remember right you need to have a spliter that connects the VCR and the Cable box that way the VCR acts like a tuner and can be recording the channel that its set to. Your cable company mite be able to send someone out to set it up for you. They may charge a small fee. No more then $50. At least that is what I used to charge to make a house call. This will be a good place to start for set up copy this into the browser. Good luck
I posted my help in the computer help Forum:( I need help to connet my tv, vcr/dvd, cable box, and video game (Game cube) with RF Modulator. I want to be able to record my cable show while I look at another show. I need help?
P.S. Do not have 3&4 switch on cable box or vcr/dvd. That's why I have the RF Modulator. Resole fading fast.
