The converter box, should really be called a converter tuner.
It'll sit on top of every device you use to record or watch television.
You can keep your VCR, but it'll only be able to copy 1 channel off the tuner box
until you change that channel.
Let me clarify, your analog tv will be set on an off channel, like 3 and you'll change
channels on the converter box not your tv to get the channel.
Do you see how the VCR will have problems getting more than one channel, because its' tuner will also be on 3 or line in,
in order to record, but now you've lost the option for it to capture different channels at different times while you are away?!
In order for your vcr to copy other channels you'll have to be there to change them, or get a programmable
remote that will work on the new tuner box, otherwise, it'll be just one channel while you're away.

I got the new box, from best buy.
it works fine, but the only thing now is, if you have an amplified signal,
the tuner box can't take too strong of a signal, before it just pixelizes or
doesn't even show the station. because it is quite sensitive to over amplification
of the signal.
the picture is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy better, but the content still sucks ...:-)
