I had cable before, now I did not renew the cable and . I got an air antena which gives me Ok some channels unfortunate I can not record anything because I have no signal from the air chanels. My DVD/VCR recorder worked fine when I had cable. I know I need the signal to come to DVD/VCR recorder first then it should go last to TV. I tried to put the air antena in the DVD combo then out to the TV. But I did not use the HDMI cables I can play the DVD in any situation but I can nor record please help?
