Could the VCR be too old to receive modern channels? Maybe the provider recently cut the analog feed and the VCR doesn't have a digital decoder.
I suppose it's possible.  But this old VCR that I tried wouldn't even PLAY on this TV.  I may need to call over to the complex and ask someone over there if they have a suggestion.

Quite possible that the TV doesn't have an analog tuner on it and only plays digital, I suppose.  Do both of them have RCA inputs (red/white/yellow)?  If so, give that a try.

Ooh, I didn't think of that.  Yes, the TV and my VCR have the RCA ports so maybe that's the way to go.  Thanks Toby.

Good call. The way I was reading it sounded like it was working before.
