I did everything I was supposed to do to set up my VCR with my converter box but I couldn't get it to record. I couldn't find the answer on the internet. The problem was that I was told to record using my VCR through channel 3. But channel 3 was never an option on my VCR menu as a channel to record on. On an internet site it suggested that I record on channel L1 or L2. This didn't work. So I finally realized the answer! It is possible to add channel 3 to my VCR menu if I scan for channels using the manual mode (not the automatic scan). Voila! I added channel 3 and now it works!
