Our TWC folks say it's aok if we VHS or DVD movies for playback later.
We have Digital TV/cable box for bedroom, our other two TVs continue with Standard Cable analog running to both vhs/dvd combo and TV using Radio Shack amps. We have Panasonic DMR-EZ48V vhs/dvd combo w/tuner for each of our 3 TV areas.
The Digital TV "area" uses Motorola DCX3200M-P2 cable box; TW dudes added a splitter between wall jack and cable box. We can use normal analog or digital TV. Cable box has RGB/AudioRL to TV. We connected S-Video CblBx out to VHS/DVD combo in. We connected Digital Audio CblBx out to Radio Shack DigitalToAnalog converter which connects RCA red/white RL into Panasonic combo RCA/RL Audio In.
We have no problem recording and later watching any TW Standard Cable [analog] channel such as TCM, AMC, FX, SyFy, etc. Because nothing ever leaves the apartment, TWC has no problem with us at all.
When we try to record any Digital TV channel - we get the blue box saying recording cannot be done.
My real question: Scientific-Atlanta 4240HDC has the same cable-coax, the same RCA outputs, matching Panasonic combo cable-coax and RCA inputs. Would installing Scientific-Atlanta 4240HDC and removing Motorola DCX3200M-P2 solve our DigitalTV recording/playback problem?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions, advice!
