I had an Ilo dvd recorder connected to my Emerson EWD2203 dvd/vhs combo. I bought a Sima CT-2 so I could record my copyright protected tapes to dvd. Turns out the Ilo was crap. So I just bought an RCA DRC8040N dvd recorder. I've tried to connect it the same as before but it won't let me record. Maybe I have something wrong. Could someone please help and tell me how this is suppost to be connected? I also have dish network in all of this stuff. Thanks for any help.
