VCR and Cox Cable questions


We have Cox cable. We have multiple VCRs. A couple are hooked up to each other (daisy chained) they record just fine now. After the switch, will they be able to pick up the various chanels for programmed recording? Or do we now have to spend several hundred dollars for the VCRs (or combo units)with "upconverters" in them?
Would the converter box be useful? Or conflict with Cox input?

Thank you. MJH

It depends, is the cable service connected to the VCR first, then run to the TV? What's the chain of connections? Do all of the VCRs record the same channel on your cable service?
