You usually have to record video as well. Without video alot of VCRs will
shut off after awhile and they try to sync on the noise.  Fortunely
most Hi-Fi VCRs have a mode where they will record video from the tuner
and audio from the line audio input.  When I was recording 9600 bps
satellite stuff for Pacsat demos the VCR worked great.  I recorded the
weather channel video so I could get a video time stamp as well 8->.
