It starts where your last recording stops. In other words it will not "tape over" what you have already put on the disc. If you have DVD-RW discs, you can erase shows and then it will record back at the start of the disc. Otherwise, it can hold up to 6 one hour shows on the disc.

can I record from a vhs recorder to this dvd recorder

Yes, it is very easy to hook up either from the front or the back. However this will not copy Disney movies. I have been able to copy many of my VHS to DVD using this unit and have been pleased with the results but not everything will copy (and there are ways around that if you google Sima CT-200 or Sima GO-DV 2000).

Question

Will this record tv shows from basic cable without a cable box?

The cable service I have is Time Warner Basic and I only get 78 channels. I do not have a cable box. The cable just goes directly into my tv. Will this recorder work for recording tv shows on those channels?

Question

Does this have a TV tuner or not?

The specifications show that it has a tuner and all the channels it can receive. However, the initial description of the product shows that it does NOT have a tuner. So does it or doesn't it???

I don't think this one has a tuner but I have my cable hooked up thru it and it picks up all my channels (it is in my daughter's room without an HD box). I can get all the channels just fine in her room. Could not figure out how to get it hooked up to HD box in living room. There is another unit that is a step up above this one, costs a little more but it does say it has a tuner. Personally, I would get the one with the digital tuner.

Yes. This is why I bought it too. Connect the VCR to the front inputs (or back, I picked front because it was easier). Use the instruction manual to see what channel to turn to to see what you are looking at (I think front input is E-2, the back E-1). I converted our home movies DVD and had no problem. If you buy this the user manual will explain everything on how to hook it up. You can also use this like a VCR and program it to record your favorite shows.

Question

Copy protection?

I recently purchased a DVD-VCR combo that has copy protection that will not allow me to record some movies on non-premium cable channels, such as Encore. Instead, it comes up with a message that the movie is copyrighted. My previous DVD recorder did not have this problem. Does anyone know if this Magnavox model or anything else sold by Walmart will allow me to record all movies on regular cable TV channels?

This DVD recorder will record some, some it will not. Sometimes the "Copy protection" will pop up. There IS a way around it though. Google search for a device called GODV! Sima CT-2000. This will help by-pass that "error". Be prepared to pay a hefty price for one. I have one on my DVD recorder and it has never failed when backing up any video
