There is a distinct difference between coax and phono (rca) cabling. Coax, sometimes called RF, is a cable that carries audio and video at the same time, what we call a "modulated" signal. RF connections look as if they are threaded on the chassis of your TV or VCR etc. A lone "Phono" cable moves either audio or video, but not both at the same time, unlike coax.
If you are attempting to patch RF, your cable must be coax at both ends. Hope that helps.

The converter box receives hte digital signals and converts them into either channel 3 or 4, or into direct video (red,white,yel). The output of the converter box must go into the VCR input for recording to work. Before the conversion, the tuner of hte VCR would receive the RF signal the same as the TV. The tuner inside the VCR is an analog tuner not digital, so it needs the conversion too. Most converters will provide both the A/V signal (R/Wh/Y) and RF (coax connector).

You are going have to soldered a new coax connector into the tuner, which is not an easy thing to do. It would be a lot easier just to replace the tuner. Check with Andrews Electronics, and get someone knowlegeable in electronics to help you with the soldering.
Unfortunately you would need a second digital cable tuner to do what you are trying to do. The digital tuner only outputs one channel at a time, selected by that box, so you can only record or watch that one channel at a time.
We also don't have a remote. We hooked a DVD/VCR combo to the Samsung combo by attaching the cable from the cable line to the DVD player and an additional cable from DVD to TV and it used to work but after we lost the control, the DVD can only be listened to but not seen. The VHS from the DVD player works perfectly though.
When we had the remote (before connecting the other combo) we used line-in to see a DVD or VHS using the yellow red and white cables from the Samsung to the other player.
The tv has a set of imputs for audio and video ,there is a posibility your dvd is not working right,you can also try a vcr by using the rca audio and video outputs of the vcr to the rca audio and video imputs of the tv,that will tell you if the dvd is not working ,the tv should have a switch selector for video and antena or have a channel below 1 called aux.
