I am not a stupid person. I have been taping from a VCR for years. I just bought a Sanyo DVD recorder and after a week of banging my head against a wall and memorizing this instruction book, I still can not record. My main problem is, I don't know what they are asking when they want Tuner, TV/DVd and what inputs I am supposed to use on the tv remote and the DVD remote. I would appreciate and advice. I have cable coming from wall to DVD then to TV. I am using the red/white/yellow connections. What am I doing wrong?
