    Don't they explain this in the manual anymore ?

    Use the Red,Black, and yellow connectors from the output of the TiVo to the input on the VCR.

    Must be kidding about thinking you'd use the usb connector right ?

    The recordings made to a vcr are via the video outputs (RF, RCA, or s-video). For more details, see this online article.

    Have you ever hooked up a vcr to a tv?

    It's no different.

    Step 1) Drink moonshine.
    Step 2) Hook up Tivo to VCR
    Step 3) Drink more moonshine.

    First off, what you want are called RCA cables which is "Yellow White and Red." The Yellow is the Video and the Red & white is audio! those go on the second set of RCA outputs on the back of the TiVo. then connect those to the VCR's RCA Inputs.

    You can copy to any Video equipment with a Video and Audio inputs e.g. DVD,VCR, or even a TiVo. The TiVo would be pointless but could be done.

    It's easy........Just hook up your VCR with RCA cables put in the tape.Go to the menu and select save to VCR and it does like a 5 second countdown and then that is when you push record on your VCR and then you can save all your backed up porn! :eek: ......I mean stuff! :D
