VCR use with new mini box

The instructions for installing the mini box makes no reference to using a VCR to record one or more shows while watching another. What options are there to accomplish this task?

    None.  The minibox only has one tuner so you can watch one program or record one program, not two at a time.  If you want to watch one while recording another, you can rent a DVR from Cox or go with a cable card ready device like a Tivo.  Sorry, the minibox won't cut it for this application.
