My VCR(s) are connected according to the diagrams shown on the troubleshooting page of the Verizon website, but I am not able to record anything.  I only have the VCR, not DVR.   I get a blue screen on the one TV and just static (and sound) on the other TV.

How do you have your VCR Connected to the Verizon FIOS Set Top Box ?


Normally you would connect it as follows:


STB---S Video and Composite Audio (Red and white)--->VCR




STB---Composite Audio and Video (Yellow, Red, White)--->VCR




STB---Coax Cable (RG6)--->VCR


To record the VCR would need to be set to record from the alternate input if using S-Video or Composite Cables and Channel 3 or 4 if using a Coax Cable.  The Verizon STB would need to be on and tuned to the program that you want to record.
