I have a Pioneer DVR and an analog TV I bought at the same time. Now Comcrap requires the digital adaptors to work. I installed them which was a bit annoying because after getting everything hooked up and calling for activation, I find out that I can't have the add on devices (VCR, DVR etc.) connected until activated. Had I known that, I would have had it much easier than having to do it twice on 2 of the 3 TVs. Anyhow, after activation, the DVR will play, but not record so far since the cable is connected into the box. I am worn out from lack of sleep and a tough couple of days, so someone please confirm for me whether it is possible to use a DVR and its separate tuner to record once the signal leaves the box. Thanks.
