I have several coupons for free pay-for-views and need to use them before they expire.<br><br>Can you record the movies like a regular show? I have not problem recording regular programs. I have digital cable so I suspect not.<br><br>

I do, always. Mostly because I sometimes fall asleep watching TV in the evening, and if I have a pay-per-view on, I want to make sure I get my money's worth.<br><br>I have digital cable too, and because it is controlled by a digital cable box, I can't program the VCR to record, aside from on and off time. But I run the cable through the VCR en route to the TV, and just record what I'm watching. If I fall asleep, well, it will keep recording until I wake up and turn it off, or until the tape fills up.<br><br><br><br>

The other option is to connect your VCR to the TV's AV output, if it has one.. TV must be on for this to work.<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by walzuhair on 10/27/02 01:09 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

I do. I have DirecTV. I asked when it was installed and they were very positive. <br><br>edit <br>Oops sorry, we don't get cable here, didn't realize there was a difference.<br><br><br>"There are three things I've learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin."<br>-- Linus Van Pelt (Peanuts)<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by iRock on 10/27/02 01:12 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
I just looked at my box...looks like I can do that...I just assumed the scrambled it so it could not be done. <br><br>That is why I like having the DVD...I can pause it or replay it if I have to turn it off.<br><br>
I have a little App called DVDBackup that will copy a DVD... quite nice really. Although it does take a good amount of time to do it.<br><br>Anyway, to stay on topic, I can tape a Pay-per-View off digital cable using my VCR without a problem.<br><br>[color:red] Kiss My Banana!</font color=red>
