I own an AVR-2800 but I'd like to know if other models can do this if mine can't. I have my cable box routed to my AVR2800. I have my VCR routed to VCR1 with ins going to outs and outs going to ins. I'd DO NOT have cable out from the cable box going into the VCR. I can watch TV just dandy this way, but I have been unable to record cable onto the VCR this way. Am I capable of doing it WITHOUT putting cable out from the box directly to the VCR?
