Without seeing the exact connections for each device, i'm going to have to guess. But you should be able to connect your VCR to either your tv directly or to your DVD player. Remember you will need to use the "input" button on your TV or DVD player remote to switch from cable tv to your VCR and back.
you can hook the cable box into the vcr and then out of the vcr into the spliter which will turn your tv red/white/yellow signel input into two inputs( you can get this at most radio shacks for about $7.00 dollors) this leaves you with one more input for the dvd player

please make sure the cable from ur vcr is attach at V-OUT...and cable from vcr that attach to dvd is V-IN...to make sure vcr is displayed at your tv, unplugged cable from vcr-to-dvd to from vcr(V-OUT)-to-tv(V-IN)...
Usually a cable box has a RF (antenna connect) IN (from the external signal) OUT (cable going to the TV_RF in) Usually one has to place TV_channel on 3 or 6 (my TV ch. 60). EXTERNAL signal goes in CABLE box RF_in, CABLE box RF_out to the TV (RF_in). In order to connect DVD/VCR, [IN LINE with cable & TV] just connect the RF_out from CABLE BOX into the RF_in of the DVD/VCR, RF_out of DVD/VCR to the TV RF_in.
first you do connect cable to your > combo VCR / DVD player & recorder then connect to > to your TV: cable coax output or if that cable have video/audio ouput is going to INPUT >to combo VCR / DVD player video / audio output is going to INPUT > to TV,.that's the time you can record and playback; click below for more information in hooking up:
This is easy in a nutshell.
from the cablebox into the VCR RF connection (ant in) then from the VCR RF into the TV RF in. The from the DVD composite video out and audio out into the VCR composite video in and audio in. This make the VCR the hub of your setup the VCR should be set to channel 3 and you can switch between the VCR and the DVD by using the VCR remote.
Now for the cords:
1) Cable to VCR RF = Coaxial
2) Composite Video and audio out = RCA patch cable
3)Composite Video and audio in = RCA patch cable
That is it.
If your TV can support multiple inputs then use it as the hub.
Cable Box to VCR RF (Coax cable) VCR to TV RF(coaxial cable) or VCR to TV Composite video, or TV Component Video (RCA Cable)
DVD Player to Composite video, or TV Component Vido (RCA Cable), or Svideo (Svideo cable)
