Just installed an additional 211z in our home dedicated to the grand kids. No more than got it installed and wife wanted to know if I could record and playback movies on a spare VCR we have. Used to do it all the time on older receivers before built in DVRs. On my RV account I have a 211 k hooked to a DVR and it works wonderfully. Wanted to see if I could spare the expense of the DVR on this receiver using a VCR. Wife could program it to record movies for kids so when they visit a couple days per week they could watch proper movies.
