Summary: I bought this for the VCR recording and no where did it say it has to be used with a cable box only. There is no way to set the channel you would like to record without the box. Since I don't have a cable box, this product is no good for me.
Summary: I already had this very same VCR/DVD and loved it so much that I bought another one. VCR's are hard to come by in the stores and online and when I saw this one I purchased it immediately. It's easy to operate.
Summary: Delivery & service from Overstock were speedy & hassle-free. I really only bought this to watch videos & maybe record shows. The vcr plays great, no problems yet. I haven't been able to record shows, but I think it's due to the tv/vcr connection...still haven't figured it out.
