I just got the Wineguard Flatwave indoor antennae and I want to be able to record programs using a 10 year old panasonic dvd player (dmr-es25). A long time ago, I had something similar to rabbit ears and I believe it had 2 cables - 1 for the dvd and 1 for the tv. The winegard only comes with 1 cable that needs to go into the tv. What do I need to do to get the antennae working with the dvd player so I can record the programs. Do I need a different antennae? If so, what do you recommend? Please note, I do NOT want any type of dvr/dvd that connects to the internet/wifi. Any help is very much appreciated!
The Panasonic recorder requires a digital converter box since it doesn't have a ATSC tuner. You will still need to split the antenna.
If you want to be able to watch your recorded programs in HD maybe a HD tuner with DVR built in makes more sense
Okay, thanks. I'll look into that as well as the option to getting a new DVR/DVD recorder like the Channel Master, depending on the costs/features.
