Should this model hookup properly and tune to 95 and 96 on my CRT tv? I have two CRT tvs in my house, but neither seem to tune to those channels naturally.

Or do I somehow have to hook up both the Famicom and VCR at the same time?5. The analog antenna I have for tuning the VCR only plugs into RF, which I initially used to hook up to my tv. My assumption is that I need to somehow simultaneously hook up the antenna to the VCR while the VCR is hooked up to the tv, but neither the tv nor the VCR have more than one RF port.

They look very, very similar, but mine does not have 2 RF ports, so I take it then that this model simply won't work for what I need it for.By any chance, do you have a recommendation for a simple VCR that you'd know would work?

Quote from: UglyJoe on March 28, 2021, 09:05:14 amAh, okay, I looked up the DV220MW9 manual and it says "This unit has no tuner system so it cannot receive TV broadcasts without external tuner or such devices.". So, no, that one is not going to work. You need one with a tuner.I don't have any specific VCR recommendations. I typically recommend that you check out local thrift stores for cheap VCRs. Should be less than $10. You won't be able to tell if its tuner goes up to 95/96, but you can at least tell what kind of hookups it has and you won't be paying a bunch of money for shipping.The vast majority will have tuners, btw. I guess some very late models were intended more as "players" rather than "recorders". If you look on the back of it and there are two ports for coaxial cables (big ports that stick out and are threaded like screws) then it has a tuner. There are often channel up/down buttons on the front, as well.I can vouch for the Sony SLV-AX10, but it's nothing special -- it's just what my thrift store had in stock
