what model of receiver do you have. look for the model number inside the access card door.. 

But typically, you connect the DirecTV receiver with composite (Yellow, red & white RCA type cables) to the matching input on your DVD recorder

Re: how to hook up vcr/dvd recorder to directv receiver and tv to record

The typical setup to record from your DirecTV Reciever/DVR to a VCR or DVD recorder is:

 

* DirecTV Receiver/DVR Audio/Video Output -> matching TV A/V Input (e.g. INPUT1)

* DirecTV Receiver/DVR A/V Output -> matching DVD/VCR Recorder A/V Input

* DVD/VCR Recorder A/V Output -> matching TV A/V Input (e.g. INPUT2)

Use the TV's Input/Source Selector Function to switch between the DirecTV receiver and VCR/DVD Recorder.  To record on the DVD/VCR Recorder, select the DirecTV Receiver/DVR Input on the recorder, set the DirecTV Receiver/DVR to the channel to record (or play a recording to copy on a DVR), and start recording on your DVD/VCR Recorder.
