I would definitely recommend scrapping that VCR & getting some kind of DVR box (perhaps one that supports HD) or a dvd recorder. Some guys even setup their computers with a few HUGE hard-drives & have their computers act as "tivo" boxes.
Hi, I recently upgraded my cable service from expanded basic to the largest digital package they had through a special deal they were running. Being a huge movie fan, I was thrilled to now have all the premium movie channels until I discovered that my VCR - as far as I've been able to tell - would not allow me to setup a timer record on channels above 99. The remote itself has a 100 button for accessing channels up to 199, but it does not function on the timer record screen. The VCR is a Panasonic and is only about 3 years old.
Anyway, if no one has any ideas on fixing my current one, does anyone have suggestions on cheap new ones that can record on channels up as far as 700-800? I might even consider a DVD-R if one is available at a pretty low price.
Thanks for any help.
