Does anyone else watch this, and if so, did anyone happen to tape last week's episode??? I admit it, I'm addicted and want to watch Art do his suspension ritual. Stupid me forgot to set my VCR last week and they aren't doing a replay this week. frown

The dish's storage unit is internal to the dish box.

(And if you ever try that you'll never go back... 50 hours of tape all available at the push of a button, no more flipping tapes).

I have a VCR hooked up to the system. I can record (with VCR) from the Dish itself (i.e. live), but doing so from what the Dish itself has taped has never worked.

Wire hook up:

DISH => VCR => TV

There doesn't seem to be a reason why this should be, I would think that the VCR would record whatever the TV is showing, but I just get a blank screen when I try to play the VCR back.

I suspect it is built into the system to prevent me from converting Dish-taped programs into VCR-taped. My VCR is VERY old. Another possibility is that the VCR can't decode the Dish's transmittions.
