    Picked this up about 6 months ago to transfer my 8MM tapes to DVD. Not
    sure now if I tried out the tuner with cable input or not...
    Anyway, passthrough is OK, but when set to VCR, the audio is stripped,
    and the picture does the following on any channel:
    -breaks up and rolls every 1 sec, for about 1 sec. then stabilizes and
    the channel locks in. Picture is perfect-still no audio
    This repeats rhythmically every 1- 1.5 seconds
    The VCR is set to CATV and the channels programmed properly. I have
    swapped cables- no change
    The VCR section and VCR output is perfect.
    I have the user manual- and tried all the switch adjustments-
    Did the tuner take a dump?
