We wanted to use our analog VCR with the new converter box (bought with a government issue coupon) for the analog TV. Had to call Customer Service for information as the TV would not communicate with the VCR no matter what I did.
After all that, it didn't work! I am waiting for my son to come up for a visit and straighten out this mess. Will let you know if it could be fixed and how he did it.
Never could record with the converter box. Hooked up a digital vcr (with tuner) to an analog tv, set it to record on "Video 1", then put the tv remote where my DH couldn't find it and told him to watch by manually turning the tv on via the ON button and changing channels by turning on the vcr and using the vcr remote.
Well, it was less expensive than buying a digital TV, too.
