The satellite should hook to the VCR with RCA jacks, if the VCR isn't stereo you need a Y cable. The VCR should hook to the TV with RCA jacks too. If the satellite has more than 1 set of output jacks it should be hooked to the TV with an s-video cable if possible, if not RCA jacks. If the satellite only has 1 set of outputs then you will need to use the coax to the TV if you want to be able to watch without the VCR being on. Anything that's hooked with coax will not have stereo audio, have to use RCA jacks for stereo. The DVD has to hook to the TV with RCA jacks. If you don't have enough inputs on the TV then go to Wal Mart or Radio shack and get a video switcher. They usually allow 3 or 4 inputs and 1 or 2 outputs.
thank you very much for your quik reply. i will try it tomorrow and hope that it works
Have a TV downstairs connected to a Panasonic VCR. The TV upstairs is connected to a JVC VCR. Both VCRs work great and play all rented tapes. If I record upstairs on the VCR (Directv), the tape will not play on the VCR downstairs,,,all distorted. This used to work, something changed?
I'm trying to hook up my two VCR's to my new Toshiba TV to be able to make copies of my old tapes from one VCR to the other or make copies of movies that are not scrambled. I have Directv hook-up and ditched the cable altogether.
My best friend's diagram is driving me nuts. I've got a splitter and am also trying to use an A/B switch. I'm trying everything with coax cable. I think I've got the wiring all #%$@&%.
Don't use coax, the recording will be poor quality. Use RCA jacks from the play VCR out to the record VCR in, then set the record VCR to line, there should be an input button somewhere on the unit or remote to change to line. Hook the record VCR to the TV and when you see a picture you're ready to record.
