I have a DVD player/VCR combo, along with Comcast digital cable. When I want to timer record a show with my DVD player or VCR, I can only record the current channel that I am on. For example, if I want to record a show on channel 10, and I want to watch a different channel at the same time, I can't do that.. cause what ever channel I flick to, my VCR will start recording that channel that I went to.
So if I got a splitter, and something called an A/B switch, would that solve the problem? I saw a diagram online which looked like it involved those things. I don't want to get one of those DVR things. Comcast charges like $16a month to use those. lol Does Comcast set up their digital cable like this, since they know they will make some extra money with people buying their DVR's, cause of getting irritated while trying to record things.
