Our family VCR recently died. To replace it I purchased a TOSHIBA SD-V295 DVD VCR COMBO RECORDER. Alas, instead of getting the great deal I thought I was getting, I learned that the unit lacks a tuner, and our home does not use either a cable or satellite box.
Can a digital converter serve the same purpose as a cable or satellite box? From what I understand, the tuner my new DVD/VCR combo lacks is an ATSC tuner. Is the digital converter an ATSC tuner?
If not, is there any way that I can hook my new DVD/VCR up to my non-digital TV?
[I'd return the unit to the seller, but I bought the unit on e-Bay, and the seller's description was very accurate. It was my mistake when I purchased it not understanding exactly what a tunerless DVD/VCR combo was.
