    Here is my set up:
    Cable from wall into TIVO
    Red/white/yellow from TIVO Out 1 into TV
    Red/white/yellow from TIVO Out 2 into VCR In
    Cable from VCR Out into TV

    I am able to watch TIVO fine when I set the TV to AV1. I am able to watch a VCR tape fine when I set the TV to TV mode.

    But I am unable to tape programs from TIVO onto a VCR tape. I have tried simply watching the show and hitting record on the VCR but that is not recording anything.

    Any suggestions?

    Have you set the VCR to L1 or AUX or something other than a numbered channel? On some VCRs, it might be channel 0. When you use the Red/White/Yellow RCA, you must select the input that the VCR uses with those cables.
