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.

If the VCR and/or DVD don't have the same type of connector that your tv set does, you can buy adapters that will convert from cable to two-prong in order to connect to your tv set. Connect from the OUT connector on the back of the DVD or VCR to the back of the tv where you normally connect the antenna. The antenna is not necessary when viewing the DVD or VCR.

How do you copy VCR tapes to DVD?

(1) VCR/VHS to DVD Conversion Service - the easiest option that involves the least hassle, but this can get expensive if you have plenty of tapes to convert.(2) Using a standalone DVD recorder - uses a DVD recorder designed to record to DVD without a computer. It will record from analog to digital sources like VCR/VHS players, older cameras, cable TV, camcorders and DVDA DVD recorder is unable to convert copyrighted films. You also have lesser flexibilities when it comes to menus, buttons and chapter settings, but it is the fastest way to convert VCR to DVD. If you can get a Firewire connection between your DVD recorder and source device then you could convert the tape to DVD at even higher quality than using analog connections.

Cable hookupyou can string them in order wall to cable box ( if needed ) box to vcr ( for recording ) vcr to DVD and DVD to tv. Mine is hooked up wall to box, box to splitter, splitter to tv ( I have dual tuners for pip ) then coaxial out plugs on DVD to coaxial in on tv ( I don't use a vcr any more but if I did it would be after the splitter and before the tv.) There is no need to send cable to the DVD unless it is a recorder also or if you don't have auxiliary inputs on the tv.
