What you might have to do is:

Put the input from your DirectTV into the DVD/VCR, and then the output from your DVD/VCR. If it has the I/O that is coaxial, I'd go that route.

One more thing -- you'll be able to record what's on that channel of DirectTV solely.

Hope that helps.

Call DirecTV's award winning customer service. They should be able to walk you through this.

Ummmm, I'm going with Customer Support Answer #1: "Could you be just a smidge more specific than 'It doesn't work.' ?" (aka "It's broken.")

Y'know, I've had DirecTV for almost 7 years now, and I have never had a bad experience with their customer service. I'll grant you that the cable industry has gotten much better than they used to be (my install time on a new cable modem wasn't given as "Sometime this month") but DTV has always done good by me.

Hey, I was being serious. I know that the cable company could walk you through it - I assume DirecTV can as well. They win awards for their service from what I hear, and you are already paying them for that call center to be there. You might as well call in and use it.

I will withdraw my hateful remark. You have done nothing to make me call you something like that. My apologies, Aaron.
