    When I was about 3 or 4, I knew how to play a videotape, but I didn't learn how to record them until I was about 11.

    I learned how to use a VCR when I was 2, and I learned how to record on a VCR when I was 8.

    I was about 3, I knew the big button with the green arrow (Betamax) meant Play, but I didn't start taping til I was about 10 or so...

    I'm not positive, I think I could at least play a VHS tape at 4 years old or maybe five. All you had to do was put the TV on VCR, put the tape in, and press the play button. Of course I had to be shown. Now recorded I never did much, but had help with it. Nowadays I have a DVR

    I knew how to use a VCR when I was about 4 (which was also the time I learned how to play NES). However, I didn't learn how to tape stuff until I was about 15...first show I taped was Invader Zim and I made copies of the Ninja Turtles movies for myself from the rental cassettes by using two VCRs. It's only illegal if I get caught

    I was about 3 or 4. Of course, I wasn't allowed to record things, but I did start recording my own stuff when I was like 9 or something (when I could find a blank tape).

    I learned how to use VCRs when I was like 4 years old I think. I learned that I could record shows when I was like 9 years old when my dad showed me how to record with the VCR so I used it to record Sailor Moon when it was on at 7:30am when I had to get ready for school. I don't know if I still have that tape anywhere in my house though.
