I am trying to buy a new vcr to work with my antenna system. There are plenty of analog types, which of course require a converter box (which is no longer available) but nothing I can find with a digital tuner.
Some advertise them on the internet, followed by a notation that they are unavailable. Retail outlets have not heard of such a thing. I can buy one with NO tuner, but noone can explain what it is for.
It seems to me that there should exist a device which can receive the same signal as my new TV through a splitter, scan the available channels, and work about like the old analog system, whereby I can set a timer and get a recording. I don't care if it is recorded on tape, cd, or dvd.
Are they going to stop antenna transmission and no manufacturer wants to include this feature?
