record to vcr from cable timer setting

I set the timer recording on my digital cable info which always worked on former vcr players but will not work on the new philips dvd/vcr I just purchased. 

I have read all instructions I can find.  Any info available?

thank you

If the Cable box is older

If the Cable box is older then the New DVD/VCR combo then of course your new model number would not be in the list to set up.  Try using other codes for Philips VCR setup, or call the cable company to see if this is compadable with your new equipment.  If it is not see if the cable company has a newer type of reciver that may be.  Good Luck and please let us know how this all turns out.

Mr. Dillon,

Mr. Dillon,

I got new code numbers for my new equipment from the cable company and using this new information I have been able to program the vcr/dvd.

Thank you very much, all is working now.
