For the best picture you can run RCA video and audio cables to the video and audio inputs on your VCR. Another way would be to connect your TV out to your VCR Ant in and then the TV out from the VCR to your TV. Tune your TV to channel 3 or 4 (set on the VCR) Turn on the VCR and you should see a picture. This should work without any problem. If it doesn't, then it is possible that your VCR has anti-copy firmware installed to inhibit or stop the copy process when triggered by a code from the program being aired. (GO Video has this) Many older VCR's do not. Try copying directly off the air or a commecial and see if your VCR can record that. If it can, then your VCR is equipped with a Macromedia Anti-piracy chipset and firmware. If it can't copy ANYTHING, then there is a problem with your cables or VCR. If you try replacing the cables with different ones, and it still doesn't work, then you VCR is defective and may require servicing.

Need Tivo IR code for Magnavox ZV450MW8 DVD/VCR

Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.
Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device..

It seems to me that you have only got one set of RCA Cablec between the TV and VCR ( from VCR Video out to TV Video In), as such the VCR only works in playback mode, you need a second set of RCA cables (from TV Video Out to VCR Video In) then select the appropriate input (Video) for the VCR. make sure to follow the colour coding on the RCA plug / socket arrangement

Connecting my Humax Series 2 Tivo to a Motorola HD DCH3416 Cable Box

Yes, the Tivo will just record in standard definition, instead of high def.

You can still hook the two up together, though.

What I would suggest (and have done in the past) is this:
Split the cable coming out of the cable box.
Hook one up to your HD cable box, and the other up to the Tivo.
Hook the output of your HD cable box to one HD input on your TV
Hook the output of your Tivo up to a different (non-HD) input on your TV.

This will allow you to watch HD while recording standard definition, and vise versa.

Running the HD through the Tivo will work, but will limit you to not be able to watch HD through it.

DVD-VCR connection when there's already cable & Tivo

Use the RCA connections of your TV to hook up the DVD/VCR, connect the "VIDEO OUT" of your TV to the "VIDEO IN" of the VCR and "VIDEO OUT" from your VCR to one of the video inputs of your TV. You need the double connection in case you want to record something to a VHS, otherwise, just hook up a cable from "Video OUT" of the VCR to any of the "Video IN" inputs of your TV.
