My DVD recorder no longer records and have noticed these are hard to find in stores locally. I have a Samsung VR4607 VCR new in box and would like to know if I bought an external tuner, can I record TV programs with use of an outside antenna? I no longer have cable so the current recorder I have has an internal tuner. Just need to get it up going again and if this doesn't work, I will try to find a recorder over the net. Thanks to all.
