Installing VCR DVD recorder to X1 platform

Can I hookup my VCR DVD recorder to the X1 DVR or the companion cable boxes?

You will need 1 composite audio/video cable (triple plug cable with yellow, red and white plugs on each end). Connect one end to the back of the cable box and connect the other end to the "LINE IN" on the back of your VCR/DVD machine. Make sure you switch the VCR/DVD to the LINE input. You will be limited to recording what ever channel the cable box is on at that time and the recordings will not be HD.
