This may be a silly question. But I havea JVC DH30000U HDTV VCR that has only two input forms: 1394, and an RF input for an antenna.
My cable box (TWC of San Diego) puts out 1394, DVI, and YCrCb. I've gotten the combo to mostly work by using 1394, and the VCR records fine if you simply hit the RECORD button on it. Playback is big and beautiful. But the VCR seems to not want to listen to the 1394 input if I use "timer recording" - it only gives you choices of various RF inputs when you use the timer.
Back in the good old days when there were only standrd (NTSC) signals, you could get an RF modulator that would take the NTSC signal and produce an RF signal, usually on channel 3 or 4, and feed it into the antenna input on your TV.
I know over-the-air HDTV signals exist, though I guess they're going to be phased out after a while. But that tells me that there are RF frequencies to be used, and an existing modulation scheme for HDTV RF signals.
Does anyone know of an HDTV RF modulator I can hang on the output (any output) of the cable box, that will produce a signal like the OTA HDTV signals, that I can feed into the antenna port on this HD VCR?
