Hello I am happy to help. I will need some info.

First tv's do not send signals out to dvd/vcr's to be recorded. Tv's will only show you what is playing or being recorded on the dvd/vcr machine.

Do you use a cable or satellite box to change channels or do you just change the channels on the tv itself?

Ok your reply does not help. Here is what I need to know. Are you having problems watching a movie? Or are you having problems recording a tv show?
