connecting old DVD recorder to new LCD LED HDTV
by Linday95005 - 8/13/10 5:56 PM
I have an old Panasonic DVD/VHS recorder that I connected to my new Samsung LED LCD HDTV. I switched out the old composite cables to new component (since no HDMI on DVD recorder). I have standard cable TV, no box, no HD and want to record TV shows as well as play DVD movies.
My set-up does not work, and I am not sure if its how I set things up, if its old cables, remote not programmed , or if its my old DVD recorder. I can watch TV channels. I can watch DVD movies. I can even record a TV show. I just cannot record a TV show while watching another TV channel. (like I used to on my old analog TV). What I have to work with is not complicated: TV cable goes through DVD recorder first, then another cable connects from DVD to TV, both are connected with component cables.
I'm sure this is a simple error, I just can't see it.... Any ideas for me? thanks.
