Look at specs. There is no RF tuner. Record only from Line input. Some times your TV will have a line out jack but I doubt you have that. Hence a separate tuner with Line Out must be used, like a cable or sat box

How long does it take to dub a 6 hour VCR tape to DVD?

It dubs in "real time" so however long the source is, is how long it will take (e.g. a 2-hour home movie on VHS will take 2 hours to dub to DVD). Note, though, that a 6-hour videotape is watchable, but a 6-hour dubbed DVD will be very, very poor quality. When I dub my 6-hour videotapes, I dub them onto 2 DVDs of 3 hours each.

Question

Do you simultaneously put a video and a DVD into it.

I need to know before buying if all I have to do is put a Videotape and a blank DVD into it and plug it into the wall.
Is that how it works? Or is it more complicated than that?

Yes, I just bought this recorder yesterday and it's pretty much easy to connect to the tv. You put your VCR tape in the recorder, put a blank DVD in the tray. Press play on the VCR, then press theD.Dubbing for the DVD to start recording. Then after the recording is complete, press play on the dvd to make sure it copied, then press stop. Then you have to finalize the dvd. It's simple, if you have any problems there is a toll free number on the remote and they are very helpful.

Insert the VHS tape to be dubbed, then the blank disc DVD-R. When the tape plays, the disc records. Very simple.

If I only have an outside antenna, can I use this to record programs on local channels?

I have a 19" Sanyo that is about a year old. It has all kinds of connections on the side. I hope that helps.

The unit uses only 110VAC. But I am puzzled about where you plan to use the thing. All residential U.S. 220VAC installations are really double 110VAC. Are you planning to use this in the U.K.?

Your TV is the device that has to have the digital tuner. Then the connection to the recorder is just line-out, line-in.

I had to return the unit I bought and order one with a tuner because all I had was basic cable without a box. Without the cable box it will not record TV programs.

I have a Direct TV box (DVR) and all I needed to hook up the recorder was the included RCA audio and video cable plus a set I had at home. I did buy a HDMI cable but returned because the picture quality to me was great with just the audio and video cables (the red, yellow and white one).
