would a splitter work its seperate units one dvd player hooked into components there is no comp. for the vcr unlike my old tv which had input one input 2 dvd-1 vcr-2
i am going to look into buying another sanyo like i had so at least i can record from the dvr to the vcr and save the tapes.
if you had a dvd recorder how would you hook that up the same way, as you would need to get the signal from the dvr.

oh i think i see the other 3 outputs for the vcr hook them up to the tv???
there are 6 3 input and 3 output
i think the 3 output go to the dvr so the 3 input would go to the tv

is the coax the cable from dvr to the tv.
i may be able to buy an older tv on ebay for $25 just to have the setup i had before worked perfect all you had to do was hit input 2 on the remote for the tv and you were able to watch and record from the tv or the dvr.

hi thanks they send you a dvd instead of a manuel.
there are 5 components on the back ot the tv 3 for the hookup 2 for the sound so i think i hook the vcr up to the tv instead of the dvd player or vice versa and set tv to component.
maybe i can take a picture and sent as an attachment that would be best thanks

well that does look simple so you need 2 coaxial wires i just had one, dvr to tv
i was thinking how does the vcr get the signal.
04-09-2013 1:37 PM
seeing there is only 1 comp on the tv maybe the vcr should go there and see if i can use an hdmi for dvd to tv. actually that would work better those 5 wires are a pain if my dvd has an hdmi port.
that diagram is making it easy hope it works
