Simple. Have the cable connection go into the vcr first to the in connection and from there use the out connection to connect to the tv in connection. Now you have all the same channels on the vcr as you do on the tv. If you have a cable box keep the vcr and tv set to the proper channel 3 or 4. If you are working with an antenna it is the same. If you want to watch and record different programs at the same time you will need to split the antenna or cable connection so that each unit gets its own clean signal and tune each devise to the desired channel.

your camera should have some kind of output...just plug it into the VCR, get the vcr onto the right input to see the camera, set the VCR to SLP with a tape with a good amount of time you can record and set the vcr to automatically rewind when it reaches the end while recording. put one of the vcrs outputs to a tv and make sure the vcr is getting the input from the camera right. from there set the vcr on record. all done!

Follow the instructions that came with the camera. You will need special software, and you may not be able to use the same camera, as it produces an analog signal for the VCR and you need a digital signal. Be aware that digital recordings take up a LOT of disc space. Generally you will get better results overall if you use the VCR. Surveillance cameras are one area where old technology is better than new.
