Hi

I was wondering if any one knew how to record from from Directtv to VHS. I followed the directions but, it (VCR) doesn't seem to able to program the channels. Any tips would be great.

Use an ordinary DirecTV box, run 2 sound and 1 video cable to the VCR, set the VCR to "line in." No VCR will decode DirecTV.

Larry is right, Robert: VCRs can’t “program” or tune DSS. If they could you wouldn’t need the DSS receiver, would you? :)

Try it the other way around. You can tell your DTV receiver to record the program to VCR though. At least my Sony and RCA receivers will. You enter the VCR code in the DTV setup and then select which program to 'record'. It'll start and stop the vcr. On the RCA you use the 'info' button while in the guide and the Sony uses 'enter' (I think) from the guide, to select 'record program'.
