Is it possible to use the digital converter, vcr, and tv so I can record one show and watch another or will I need two converter boxes?

You will need two converter boxes, one to view the channel you want to watch on TV, and one for the VCR set to the channel you want to record.  This is because your VCR is only equipped with only a ATSC (Analog) Converter and not a digital converter.

If you decide to go this route, you’ll need to be sure and check the back of your TV for 2 total RCA (Also known as Composite) inputs. One to receive the converter input and one to receive the VCR/other converter input.
