If you are connected to a cable or satellite box for recording nothing will change.
However if you are currently using your recorder to record programs from an antenna (over the air) or has a receiver, you will no longer be able too. There are two options:
1. Buy a recorder that contains an ATSC tuner.
2. Buy a digital to analog converter box. You may qualify for two $40 dollar coupons per household which are being made available from the U.S. government to be applied toward the purchase of eligible TV Converter Boxes which will keep older Analog Receivers working after February 2009 deadline.
