You just got direct tv how do you hook up the vcr to be able to record show is from the direct tv receiver?
okay here goes. first off what out-put on the receiver box coax, rca (red,white,yellow) s video, composite, component hdmi. lets say coax use rca cables from the out on the dtv receiver to the input on the vcr then run rca cables to the input on the tv. turn your receiver on turn the vcr off turn the tv on turn the tv to video/input. if you don't see sat video you cross the inputs and the outputs if you're sure it right turn on the vcr press the tv/video or input button on the vcr remote. blank vcr tape. and REMEmBER IT RECORDS WHAT IT SEE SO IF YOU PREE INFO GUIDE IT WILL SHOW EVERYTHING THAT THE TV SEE.

If you have direct tv and a cable box a DVD a vcr with surround sound and you would like each one to be able to go through the surround sound how should you hook them all up?
I don't understand why you would have Direct TV (sattelite) and cable TV? However, it depends on the input/output combinations of each component. I have my coaxial cable from …my sattelite to the sattelite in jack on the sattelite receiver, the out to TV coaxial from the sattelite receiver run to my VCR plugged to antenna in on the VCR and a coaxial cable from the VCR to the TV coaxial antenna in on the TV. That way, you can watch sattelite without turning the VCR on, but the sattelite receiver has to be off to watch VCR or VHS tapes. Then, run video patch cords (red, white and yellow) out of the DVD to the TV (if the TV has those types of inputs on the back) If you want all three components (sattelite, VCR and DVD) to run through surround sound and NOT the TV, run only the yellow video cord from the DVD to the TV. Run the red and white to the surround sound receiver for each component. Your surround receiver should have multiple inputs for sattelite/cable, VCR and DVD.
Answer See Bob Goodman's book, How electronic things work, latest edt, pg 216 and onwards will give you a clearer picture.
Answer You have easy two options. 1: if your TV has video/audio connections then plug the DVD player into the Video/Audio ports on the TV. Connect the Antenna/…cable from the wall to the input on the VCR and then connect a cable from the output of the VCR to the TV. Put the TV on 3 or 4 to watch the VCR and on Video to watch the DVD 2: If your TV does not have Video/Audio inputs then connect the DVD to the VCR Video/Audio inputs and connect the VCR to the TV as described in option. TO watch DVD select the DVD as the input for the VCR and then turn the TV to CH 3 or 4.

Here are the steps in connecting your receiver to the tv. 1 - check your audio/video cables (usually white and red for audio and yellow for video) 2 - attach the… video cable from the video output jack of your satellite receiver to your tv video input jack 3 - connect the audio cables from the audio output of your receiver to your tv audio input jacks
VCRs do NOT process digital signals, analgue is the only language they understand. Therefore, you need to place before the VCR a device that has a digital tuner plus the abili…ty to convert digital signal to analogue. Examples of such devices are a cable / satellite set-top box, a digital to analog converter box (the converter box ONLY works IF your digital TV feed is coming from an over-the-air TV antenna, not through underground cable), and a stand-alone DVD disk recorder "with a built-in digital tuner". Whichever tuner plus converter device you have, connect either S-Video or Composite Video AND RCA (red and white) audio output of the device to the input sockets of your VCR. Make sure that whatever "types" of video and audio connections you make are available on both ends, as output on your tuner/converter device and input on your VCR.
You don't want to do this. The VCR will make the video look like crap. Get something called an Audio-Video Switch. This is the best way to hook multiple devices to a tv. …Also, DVD signal has a copy protection signal in it called Macrovision. You could go from the Xbox to the VCR then the TV using a device called a "Video Signal Stabilizer."
your best bet would be to try your local pawn shop or check the classified sites like salequick .com and craigslist....
I'm assuming you want to purchase a receiver. Try ebay. Before buying, call to make sure the receiver does not have a balance or it will not be activated.
