Daniel recently posted a question:
I have a Magnavox model No. 19PR14 C227 with a Magnavox modelVRT342 video cassette recorder. I do not know if the vcr has a built in digital converter. Do I need to install a digital converter to receive digital TV signals?
After doing some net research, that particular Magnavox TV model was manufactured around 1996. Is that correct?
It looks like you will need a converter box since 99% of all VCRs do not have a built in digital converter (Just recently in the past 2 months, a few VCR manufacturers have starting producing VCRs with digital converters, but I don’t think it’s going to become a popular option due to the popularity of Digital Video Records (DVRs).
You’ll only need 1 converter and will need to connect it to your VCR, then run a cable from your VCR to your TV. Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.
