    VCR operation with over-the-air antenna: I have a high def TV. The VCR setting on back of the VCR is set to channel 3. With cable, I set the TV to channel 3 and played a tape or recorded a TV show. With over the air antenna, when I attempt to set the TV to channel 3, it immediately jumps to channel 3.1. When I press "Play" on the VCR, the TV screen displays a message "Weak or No Signal". How do I resolve the problem so I can use my VCR with the over-the-air antenna I just purchased in the same way I did with cable? Thanks for your help.

    What's channel 3.1?
    Antenna reception is no different from cable, only that you might have a station on the air transmitting at channel 3 - interfering with the VCR also transmitting at channel 3.
    Bypassing the VCR, do you receive anything at channel 3?
    Please be clear about the difference between channel #'s and preset #'s.
