Hello Audrey,
\015\012
\015\012If you can watch the videos on the TV, your cables are correct, but you don't generally record a video to DVD using the record button. Most VCR/DVD combinations have a DUBBING button on the front of the player and/or the remote control for copying from one to the other.
\015\012
\015\012Additionally, some players can only record from video to DVD, some can only record from DVD to video and others will do both. On players that can do both, you need to instruct the player whether you want to record from video to DVD or vice-versa.
\015\012
\015\012If you can le me know the model number of the player, I can let you know which recording options are available on your player, how to record and (hopefully) supply a new manual which you can download and print. The model number may be on the front of the player, but usually these are found on a label on the back of the player.

After 5 yrs.of excellent performance, my Toshiba 27AF45 no longer receives a signal through the Comcast Motorola DVR when I use the TV/Video button on the Toshiba remote control (CT-847) to switch between Video1, Video2 and Video3. However, it plays DVD's on the ColorStream setting and shows up to 81 channels on the TV (non-cable antenna) setting. This problem started several days ago after some power outages in my home. At first, the three cable settings (Video1, 2, and 3) started going out int
