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.

How do you record a show at home on TV to VHS?

With a VHS recorder hooked to the TV. If you are looking to just record off the TV then the best way is to attach either your antenna or your cable to the VCR in connectio and then the VCR out goes to your TV. If you are looking to attach a camera to your VCR and record, the video out of the camera goes to the videl line in on you VCR and the audio out from your camera goes to line audio in on your VCR. Your VCR will need to be on the LINE IN channel to see the output of the camera. You then push record on your VCR and shoot away.

How do you hook up a security camera to a computer so it will record instead of a vcr?

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.
