How can I record a cable show while watching a digital channel?

Please follow the steps below:

  • Step 1: Set your VCR to TV mode, which is analog.
  • Step 2: Program your VCR or start recording when the show starts
  • Step 3: Press the TVbutton to choose digital input using the BYPASS button
  • Step 4: Press CABLE to change channels on the digital receiver

This lets you watch a digital channel while recording an analog show.

Note:  If you think you will be recording digital programming more often than analog, set your VCR to digital; if you record in analog mode, use the instructions above.
