  • If it is a dvd/vcr combo make sure that it is on vcr and put your tv on channel 3 (or whatever channel you usually watch movies from the vcr on). You should be able to change channels using the vcr...if you can then put the vcr on the channel you wish to record (example, if you would like to record something on channel 5, press the channel changer on the vcr until it reaches channel 5). Once it is on the correct channel you can record by pushing the record button (this should be labeled). You may also be able to program the vcr to record automatically, but since all vcr's are different you may want to consult the manual on how to do that. You can still watch another channel while recording...simply switch your vcr from vcr to tv and your vcr will record the channel it is on while you watch something else. I hope this helps.
