    Technically yes, but in reality NO.

    You need to get your mom a DVR cable box.

    Yes you can record shows using a VCR but you need a cable box that is turned to the channel that she is trying to record.
    Spectrum has a DTA (digital tv adapter) which is a box that is about the same size as a VHS tape but not as wide.

    What sucks is that every TV in the house requires a box.
    This means you have to spend $5 per TV per month.
    I have 6 TVs.
    The main TV has a DVR and my mother in law's TV has a DTA so she can watch SEC network.
    The TVs in the shop, my bedroom (rarely watched) and the 2 kids play rooms don't have boxes.
    I have a android box on the shop TV so I am going to download the Spectrum app for it.

    A lot of my friends are dropping home phone and TV. Keeping internet.
    They are using Youtube TV, Netflix, and other methods for their TV service.
    Much cheaper to stream multiple services vs paying Spectrum for theirs

    I cut the cord a while back.

    Most of my programming comes in over an attic mounted TV antenna for free. I have a TiVo OTA DVR box that records all programming coming in over the antenna (ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, PBS, The CW and about 30 additional channels I rarely watch). No monthly fees and all in High Definition.

    I use the cable company for Internet only.

    For other cable channels I have Roku devices with a small cable bundle by SlingTV ($30/month with DVR function and no contracts).

    I also have NetFlix and Amazon Prime. I have more programming choices than I ever have time to watch. Iím never going back to cable tv.
