Hi,I'm trying to record my first dvd-rw disk on a finai vcr/dvd unit.
My hdtv receives a cable signal from the wall and a hdmi cable connects the hdtv and the recorder.
So now I can watch dvds and vhs tapes by changing the hdtv input selection to hdmi - great.
The hard part is how do I record what I am watching?
