... just for the record... i'm an interior designer, so there you have it! i don't know how to do this stuff here's my problem. i have a box, and a 3-way splitter leading to it. i need to record three separate programs, on three separate channels, at the same time. none of the shows in question are on premium channels. i'm either mentally challenged, or i'm doing something wrong. but then again, it seems that my cable company's cust support guys may be having the same problem.--scratch--scratch... all three vcrs are hooked up to a respective tv set... and i've supposedly managed to untangle the jungle of cables leading from the box into the vcrs. this probably sounds incredibly dumb to all of you, but you try bringing into sync a pair of victorian pillows with a pathetic multicolor tassel trim with a nasty looking art deco lamp and an eames sectional... pls help thanks!
