I am attempting to hook a magnovox dvd player into the cable box to records shows. The way I have the it hooked now, I can watch a DVD but not record while watching.

I have r/y/w cable from video out on cable box to video in on DVD player. I have r/w/y from video out on dvd to AV1 on tv. old tv, not HD.

The cables are configured so I switch the tv to AV1 and I can watch, but recording doesnt' happen.

Any ideas out there?

Set the recorder on whatever input you connected the cable box to.

BTW, DVD players don't record.

yes, DVD don't record.

You can buy an empty disc and record by DVD RW from your computer.
